Seven-time Virgin Australia Supercars Champion Jamie Whincup says he's looking forward to the challenge of the upcoming BP All-Stars Eseries after testing his new driving simulator.
Whincup admits he will have his work cut out in the competition, having never really used online or sim-racing in training, rather sticking to traditional on-track methods.
The 37-year old says his competitive nature will ensure he won't be taking the All-Star Eseries easy and he's grateful to be able to continue racing in some form while the Supercars Championship is on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Over the weekend, defending Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin had his first win in iRacing, claiming victory in the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama from his home in Brisbane.
McLaughlin started in 8th before running a different strategy to everyone else to claim his first online win. Aussie IndyCar driver Will Power finished second.
The full suite of Supercars drivers will line up on the iRacing grid in the opening round of Wednesday's BP Supercars All-Stars Eseries
It will feature races at Phillip Island and Monza, Italy.
The BP Supercars All-Stars Eseries will begin on Wednesday and be broadcast live from 7pm - 9pm on Fox Sports, Kayo, Ten Play, Twitch and Supercars Digital Channels.
