Australian-born IndyCar champion Will Power will test his skills in a new racing category as he joins the field of Supercars drivers as a wildcard entry to the BP Supercars All Stars Eseries broadcasting from 7.00pm Tonight on FOX SPORTS (Channel 506), on Foxtel and Foxtel NOW.
The 38-year-old Power, who first joined Team Penske in 2009, will join fellow Shell V-Power Racing Team drivers, Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard, in the hunt for honours in round three of the Eseries at Mount Panorama.
And before the racing begins FOX SPORTS (Channel 506) will exclusively broadcast LIVE qualifying for the third round of racing from 6.00pm to Foxtel and Foxtel Now subscribers.
“Being Australian, the Supercars series is really important to me and I’ve always followed it over the years; even more now that Team Penske has such a great presence,” Power said.
“We all pay attention to what the Shell V-Power Racing Team, Scott and Fabian are doing and their success is huge for our organisation. I really hope to get the chance to race some Supercars events for the team one day, but of course now I’m focused on winning another IndyCar Championship and another Indianapolis 500,” he said
The 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series Championship winner says he’s looking forward to getting back to an Australian race track from the comfort of his North Carolina living room.
“I’m really pumped to race with the Supercars Eseries. And to get to race at Bathurst of all places – it’s going to be a blast,” Power said.
“I’ve watched the first couple of rounds and some of these guys are good. The racing has been crazy for sure so I hope I can just have a good run and be competitive. That’s going to be hard, especially at Bathurst. You are going to have to stay out of trouble and be there at the end.
“I’ve always done a lot of sim racing, but been spending a lot more time online since we’ve been dealing with the pandemic. I’ve had the chance to race all the IndyCar races and have been doing some other stuff too, so I’m pumped add a Supercars race to it as well.
“It’s a lot of fun and gives the fans something to watch and gives us drivers something to compete in so it will be a lot of fun.”
The BP Supercars All Stars Eseries will welcome Dunlop Super2 drivers for the third week of Supercars virtual racing, with Brodie Kostecki, the Penrite Racing co-driver of another favourite, Anton De Pasquale, will join the grid for round three at Mount Panorama as a wildcard.
A second Dunlop Super2 frontrunner and 2018 Mike Kable Young Gun Award Winner, Thomas Randle, will also feature as a wildcard.
Randle is Nick Percat’s 2020 PIRTEK Enduro Cup co-driver and earlier this year was diagnosed with testicular cancer at the age of 23.
