With the final round of the Supercars season fast approaching, the Pro Eseries is just getting started, and preseason is in full swing.
So, ladies and gentlemen; start your virtual engines and put your hands together for our 2020 Pro Eseries driver… Jarrad ‘Fuelcell’ Filsell!
You might be wondering, what does it take to be a Pro Eseries driver for the Red Bull Holden Racing Team?
Our criteria: have the best Omen gear in the business and be faster than JDub on the sim…not that that’s hard!
For Jarrad, the opportunity to join the Red Bull Holden family is an exhilarating thought.
“I’m really excited to be joining the factory Holden squad in my second season in the Pro Eseries. I think the competition is definitely harder this time around as the series grows and evolves, so I’m just going out there to win as many races as possible.”
No stranger to the virtual racing world, Fuelcell has been getting many laps under his belt in preparation for the season start following the Bathurst 1000.
“I’m lucky enough to coach on the iRacing platform, so being on the sim almost every day of the week keeps my mind fresh and in tune with any car. With the Omen 30L and Omen X monitors, I can definitely see the difference in top-of-the-range equipment really putting me in the best shape going forward this year.”
Having regularly raced against Shane ‘SVG’ van Gisbergen numerous times, meeting the drivers and crew at The Bend was an amazing experience for the Adelaide-based sim racer.
“The Red Bull Holden Racing Team have been extremely accommodating so far, especially in the current climate. I was fortunate enough to meet the team at The Bend a few weeks ago which was an awesome experience. I regularly race against Shane as well, and with his help I always learn different techniques, but any racer won’t give away their tricks – I’ll just have to figure them out myself!”
The Supercars Pro Eseries kicks off at the end of October, with drivers battling it out for the Championship over six rounds.
