For the first time in the Retro Series presented by DMLC Racing Channel history the Lotus 79’s will roar to life down under at Phillip Island. Located in Victoria Australia the 2.762-mile 12 turn circuit has hosted everything from Supercars through Formula 4 and thanks to the technology of iRacing, the Lotus 79.
While this may be the first running of the Retro Series at Phillip Island, it is no stranger to the Lionheart Racing Series powered by HyperX. Phillip Island was run 3 consecutive years in Seasons 3 through 6. It produced 3 different winners with Jake Wright winning the inaugural running and Dan Geren wining in Season 5 and Adam Blocker in Season 6.
The Round 6 event will complete the first third of the season and the championship battle remains tight as ever. Defending series champion Ryan Otis sits just 10 points back of Sage Karam. Finian Dcunha sits just 40 points back from Karam in 5th place. Lionel Calisto jumped 10 positions after his big win at Pocono and now sits 6th overall.
The Team Championship presented by HyperX also remains close through the first 5 rounds. Raven Motorsports continues its winning tradition as both Raven Silver and Black hold on to the top two positions in the standings. It’s still anyone’s championship to win as the top 5 teams are separated by just 66 points.
The FISCH Motors Grand Prix of Phillip Island will be broadcast live on May 28th 2020 on the iRacing eSports Network courtesy of the Global Sim Racing Channel. Coverage begins at 9:35 pm CST.
