IndyCar virtual racing 2020

With so many closures due to the Covid-19 virus, even IndyCar drivers have been told to work from home. If you can't bring the racetrack home it's time to make the racetrack virtual and get those professional drivers going head to head against one another. Beginning Saturday, March 28, 2020 the NTT IndyCar Series starts live streaming virtual race events each week. Six races have been planned during the current racing suspension featuring the drivers and some special guests.

You can watch the virtual races at, IndyCar's YouTube Channel, Facebook Live and iRacing's Twitch. Each race will begin at 4pm ET every Saturday up till May 2 and last 1.5 to 2 hours. IndyCar plans to get the actual race season going on May 24 with the Indy 500.
IndyCar has been suspended since the the season opener in St Petersburg during the March 15 weekend was cancelled.

From IndyCar; "To enhance the fan experience, INDYCAR will conduct a 15-minute, pre-race virtual autograph session with several of the participants beginning at 3:15 p.m. each week. There also will be a live interview with the race winner by post-race host Katie Hargitt on INDYCAR’s Instagram immediately following the conclusion of the race. The inaugural INDYCAR iRacing Challenge race venue will be selected through bracket voting by fans today through Thursday. Fans can vote daily on the track match-up in the bracket to determine which venue will advance to the next round. The voting, which has a 12-hour window beginning 10 a.m. daily after today, is available through the @INDYCAR Instagram and Twitter handles or online at The opening virtual race event will be followed by Barber Motorsports Park (April 4), “Driver’s Choice” track (April 11), “Random Draw” track (April 18), Circuit of The Americas (April 25) and a non-INDYCAR “Dream” track (May 2)."
