“We’re unique in our ability to provide much needed entertainment to everyone in Australia while we await a return to real world racing.

“Having all of our drivers join our commentary team made for a brilliant experience and it was great to see both new and existing fans tuned in to watch the action.

“The feedback from fans has been overwhelmingly positive and we look forward to next week’s second round, where we will race on two of the world’s most iconic circuits; Silverstone and Barcelona.

“We hope everyone continues to enjoy watching our drivers provide the best real time entertainment on TV right now.”
