The Supercars Eseries returns for Round 2 tonight with two huge races across Barcelona and Silverstone.
Scott McLaughlin dominated proceedings in Round 1, taking out the inaugural BP All Stars Eseries race at Phillip Island before clinching the third and final race of the night at Monza.
McLaughlin has converted his Virgin Australia Supercars Championship form onto the online setup with relative ease, seemingly gliding through the field at will, the same can’t be said for majority of other high profile drivers, with Ecrashes coming thick and thin.
Drivers take to the famous British F1 circuit Silverstone for the opening two races of Round 2.
The grid for race one will be determined by a time ARMOR ALL Qualifying Session, Anton De Pasquale has been strong in qualifying thus far and I’m expecting him to be lining up at the top of the grid.
De Pasquale was extremely unlucky not to claim his first win of the series last week at Phillip Island, after crossing the line first he was dealt a massive 30 second penalty for making contact with a cornering Le Brocq relegating him to 13th.
I’m backing De Pasquale to come out firing in the opening race, setting the tune for the rest of the night.
Following race 2 at Silverstone drivers will be skipping over the English Channel to another historic F1 track at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Much like Silverstone, Barcelona will be an extremely foreign track for the majority of the field of Supercar drivers.
The ability to adapt quickly and seize passing opportunities is critical here, both attributes the young gun Scott McLaughlin has in spades.
Regardless of starting position, I believe McLaughlin possesses the ability and hunger required to move his way up the field here.
One driver who will have previous knowledge of the track is F1 firebrand Max Verstappen, who is jumping in an a ‘E’Supercar for the very first time, Max finished 3rd in the last Grand Prix to be raced at Barcelona and represents great value at $7.00.
