With the 2020 Lionheart Retro Series presented by DMLC Racing Channel season opener in the books the series switches focus from the high-speed ovals to the twisty iconic Watkins Glen International.
Unlike the IndyCar Series the Retro Series drivers will run the Classic Boot configuration eliminating the famous or at times infamous bus stop.
George Sandman enters the Round 2 event with the points lead after clamming his first victory of the season in an exciting 3 wide finish. Leading the championship by just 4 points over Ryan Otis, the win marked the 2nd in Sandman’s career. Despite finding some success on the ovals, the road ace has yet to win a road course event in the series.
The SimXperience Grand Prix at the Glen will mark the 4th time in as many seasons that the Retro Series has visited the historic track. Each season has produced a new winner and each of those has led every lap enroute to victory lane.
Sage Karam is the defending race winner, having won over Ryan Otis by 24.846 seconds which is the 4th largest margin of victory in Retro Series history. Karam is coming off two big wins in the IndyCar at Watkins Glen. After winning the Round 2 Lionheart IndyCar Series race at the Glen, Karam followed it up by winning the IndyCar iRacing Challenge debut against several real-world NTT Data IndyCar Series drivers. This victory could give him the clean sweep as well as being crowned King of the Glen.
Tune in this Thursday, April 2nd 2020 to watch the SimXperience Grand Prix at the Glen live on the iRacing eSports Network courtesy of the Global Sim Racing Channel.
