Dreyer and Reinhold Racing’s Sage Karan in the No.24 Wix Filters Chevrolet is looking forward to Saturday’s Firestone 175 NTT IndyCar Series iRacing Challenge having raced at Twin Ring Motegi before.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend Karam who won the opening race in Watkins Glen cornered saying:
I have raced on Twin Ring Motegi a few times with my simulator. But I was too young to race there in person, similar to the Michigan track last week. But I have practiced on it recently and getting ready to run up front again if possible. It’s a big field, and the racing should be outstanding again this Saturday. It’s amazing how advanced the iRacing technology has become in the recent years. You can feel the bumps through your sim steering wheel and feel the difference in the track surfaces. Marbles from the tires can develop, too, as does the change in track grip. You see shadows on the track and glare in your car’s windscreen. It’s truly awesome. Everyone is sitting in their homes and looking for things to watch in all sports, in general. The iRacing is a form of competition that has real drivers competing wheel to wheel. This is opportunity for fans to watch some good racing and the sponsors to gain exposure, too. Other sports can’t do that right now. We hope we are giving the fans some entertainment in these strange times.”
