Eseries: Round 1 Recap

“First round didn’t go well for myself results wise, but I still had fun. I felt like I was a getting caught in a demolition derby wherever I went, but from what I’ve seen the fans found it entertaining which is the main thing. Unfortunately I got shunted early in the Monza race which means I couldn’t finish, but I wasn’t the only one – it was absolute carnage. I was talking to JDub a little bit throughout the races trying to help him get up to speed with all the technology, so hopefully this week we’ll have more time to practice and help each other out. I’ll put a few more hours into the sim over the next week and get ready for Barcelona and Silverstone.”
Shane Van Gisbergen
“Anyone who knows me knows I don’t really like the indoors and excess screen time, so I was a little conservative with this whole Eseries idea, however I really enjoyed my first e-racing experience and was blown away by how technical it all is. The amount of software involved to get me racing was out of control. I had everything displayed in front of me on a big HP/Omen screen that had as much, if not more information than the race car feeding to my dash. I also had an engineer programmed to be my spotter, as well as two chat forums going; one with SVG and the other with all the other Supercars’ drivers. Overall, it was out of control yet something I really enjoyed. I’m looking forward to doing some miles this week to try and be more competitive and also work with Supercars to improve the show that broadcast live on Fox & Kayo.”
Jamie Whincup
