2021 Pro and All Stars Eseries
« on: August 25, 2021, 02:18:29 PM »
Starts tonight at 7:30pm on a variety of streams. Two Championships this year.

All Stars: Our known drivers, both current and overseas

Pro Series: Proper Sim Racers

Surprisingly, SVG won't be driving in either series - he's probably good enough to take on the pro's quite successfully.
Expect de Pasquale to run away with the All Stars.

And as per last year, I'm expecting D Warren and Fisell to be the guns.

The All Stars race decended into chaos, which is just fine because it's billed as a bit of fun.

Poor Chaz getting hung up on the pit wall was one one of the funniest things I've seen.

He needs to be a bit quicker on the reset button. He hung around for a little longer.
Anton only lost a lap, I think Chaz lost 2-3.

Shame it's only ovals. They should just let the drivers know the track 1-2hrs in advance, so they can't practice all day.

I agree - one oval was good as a novelty but doing it every week is overkill. Seems like the drivers didn't want to have to learn foreign tracks?

I can't see the problem with having mostly ovals. Sure, it may be gimmicky, but at least it highlights what the All Stars series is this time, and it puts a little more emphasis on the true iRacing wizards that do it most of the time in the Pro Series.

The Bathurst enduro should be interesting. Its All Stars pairing up their Pros, and I'm sure the heads of the toastier fans will explode if the pros are faster than their favourite all stars.

You mean those nerds on their Playbox X-Stations can actually drive!? No way!

I missed the Pro race last week as I completely forgot about it. Remembered in time for the All Stars race. Surely Scotty Mac has to make an appearance at some point!

I watched a couple of these for novelty value last year but don't think I'll bother this time around.

Two rounds in and like last year, the ones that are on it most of the time are the ones up the pointy end.

We asked, they delivered:

Two ovals out, Monza and Watkins Glen added. Good moves.

Virtual Bristol would've been fun to watch though.

Dayne Warren is in a different league at the moment. 4/4 is impressive.
