The iRacing Classic Indycar series continues full speed ahead with round 4 approaching this weekend at Motegi 09/05/21.
Following on from an eventful race at Kansas, the league rolls into Motegi for round 4 of the iRacing series. Racer, founder, and reporter of CIS Robert Grosser gives the pre race buid up.
“Classic Indycar Series returns to Motegi (Oval) after visits in 2016 and 2019. Especially the most recent race there is still memorable for its long green flag runs (only 4 cautions in total) and the battle between Matt Cooke and NTT Indycar Series driver Sage Karam. Cooke, who went on to dominate the 2019 season, kept the upper hand. This time neither Cooke nor Karam will be on the grid, but Kansas has shown that the 2021 roster is capable of providing good action and close racing. Motegi races way different than the likes of Kansas Speedway, with an actual braking zone entering T3. Especially accelerating out of T4 has proven to be delicate in our classic Dallara IR-05 chassis, so the driver can really make a difference. Championship leader Lucas Laville is traditionally strong on this track, but so is his competition! Joshua Chin, Andrew Aitken, Randy Shewmake, Nate Michael, and Ethan Agan may want to challenge the defending champion with all they have. The race is expected to come very close to the 2 hour time limit, with a scheduled race distance of 201 laps (500km).
