Norris set to compete in COTA IndyCar Esports round

McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris has been invited to join IndyCar’s virtual grid for Saturday’s sim race at the Circuit of the Americas.

IndyCar is one of many championships that has taken to sim racing to fill the void as the world deals with the COVID-19 virus. The American open wheel championship has already hosted virtual rounds at Watkins Glen, Barber, Michigan and Motegi using the iRacing platform.

The fifth round of IndyCar’s iRacing Challenge will take place this Saturday on the Circuit of the Americas. McLaren's Lando Norris has been invited by the series to join the grid and rub elbows with IndyCar’s regular pack of drivers.

Watch the Supercars All Stars Eseries:

Norris, an avid sim racer and popular Twitch streamer, is set to line up with an Arrow McLaren SP livery alongside his US based teammates Patricio O’Ward and Oliver Askew.

Austin’s Circuit of the Americas is the only track that features on both the Formula 1 and IndyCar calendar, so Norris already knows the track well.

The call to get Norris on the grid started on Twitter via O’Ward.

 

IndyCar responded swiftly by extending an invitation to the 20-year-old Briton.

 

The COTA race is scheduled this Saturday at 2:30 EST or 7:30 BST. The last round of the six-race virtual championship will be held on Saturday May 2 on a “non-IndyCar dream track”.
