The Lionheart Retro Series presented by DMLC Racing Channel looks ahead to Round 3 as it prepares to take on its 2nd in a string of 3 straight road courses. For the first time in league history, the series will head to Donington Park. The Classic IndyCar Series Grand Prix of Donington is sponsored by the Classic IndyCar Series (CIS), another premier open-wheel league on iRacing utilizing the IR-05 IndyCar.
The Classic IndyCar Series uses open setups for its events adding an increased level of realism to their championship seasons. Founded in 2015 and quickly growing in popularity both series share a common interest in their passion for open wheel racing with cars from earlier eras.
“We’re extremely excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with CIS in this way,” Lionheart founder Jorge Anzaldo said. “Lionheart has had a great relationship with CIS and its founder Robert Grosser over the past few years. CIS has helped promote Lionheart and our series has created their championship plaque for a few seasons. They’ve been great friends.”
While Donington is new to the Retro Series, Lionheart has had one visit to the track which is located in Leicestershire England. Season 5 saw Jake Wright victorious over Adam Blocker, a feat which few drivers can claim over the current defending Lionheart IndyCar Series champion.
George Sandman continues to hold on to the points lead through the first two rounds. Defending series champion Ryan Otis dropped 3 spots after a disappointing result at Watkins Glen. Other big movers were Aaron Morgon who climbed 20 spots after a fantastic podium run at the Glen and now sits 10th overall. Chris Ragan also moved up 16 positions after a strong 6th place finish.
The Classic IndyCar Series Grand Prix of Donington will be aired live on the iRacing eSports Network Thursday, April 16th, 2020 courtesy of the Global Sim Racing Channel. Coverage begins at 9:35pm CST.
