The 2KCUP series is set to take to the prestigious Mount Panorama Circuit this weekend, albeit virtually. The popular club-level racing series has taken to iRacing to keep its members racing during the COVID-19 lockdown. The virtual iteration of the series has proven so popular that the likes of Shane van Gisbergen, Brendon Hartley, Liam Lawson and a smattering of New Zealand’s other top drivers have joined in on the racing.
After multiple weeks of MX5 action on a Sunday night, this weekend drivers will tackle the famed Australian circuit over a six-hour race. Drivers will pair up in teams of two or three and contest the race in identical Porsche GT4 cars. Up for grabs is $3,000 in prizes, split between podium placers and other milestones.
Amongst the entry list is Kaleb Ngatoa, Callum Hedge, Jadan Ransley, Peter Vodanovich, Tom Alexander, Tayler Cockerton, Rowan Shepherd and Jordan Michels.
The action will be streamed live on the Global Sim Racing Channel with the race commencing at 4:00pm on Sunday May 10th.
