Sage Karam fresh off his 2nd consecutive win this season heads into Mosport with the points lead possibly the momentum he needs to make it 3 in a row. A feat that has only been accomplished one time in the history of the series back in Season 2 when Alex Saunders won rounds 6 through 8.
Karam has come close to the 3 peat twice in his Lionheart Retro Series presented by DMLC Racing Channel career. Season 3 was definitely a dominant year for Sage winning 5 times on road courses and had 3 in a row in his sights after winning Rounds 15 and 16 but was unable to make the race. Fate would have it that the race he needed to win to make it 3 in a row was Mosport.
Fast forward to 2020, Sage is back in position to become one of two drivers ever to win 3 consecutive races in the Retro Series. This being accomplished only one other time in series history is certainly a testament to the depth of talent in the roster.
There are quite a few drivers that certainly will have their say in how all this plays out. Ryan Otis the defending race winner and series champion sat on pole last year with an average speed of 130.603 MPH and knows how to get around the Canadian circuit. After gaining a position in the standings and currently sitting 4th Otis needs a good finish to gain ground on the top 3 who are separated by just 20 points.
George Sandman is sitting currently in 2nd place overall and would love to grab his 2nd win of the year. Having won the season opener at Homestead, the veteran and road master would love nothing more than to take a win and the points lead for his primary sponsor HPP Simulation.
Alex Saunders who sits on top of the series power rankings for the 2nd straight round will be pushing his Nighthawk Motorsports Lotus 79 machine to the limit in search of his 1st win of the 2020 season and 12th of his Retro Series career. Saunders currently leads the league with 11 career victories, 14 poles and 1058 laps led. In short this is shaping up to be an epic battle between the Lionheart Retro Series road aces.
The Lionheart Retro Series presented by DMLC Racing Channel will be live on the iRacing eSports Network April 30th, 2020 for the HPP Simulation Grand Prix of Mosport.
Race coverage begins at 9:35 PM CST and will be provided by the Global Sim Racing Channel.
