Craig Lowndes is reportedly set to make his Supercars Eseries debut in next week’s sixth round of the virtual championship.
As reported by motorsport.com, Lowndes was originally drafted to race in tonight’s round at Spa-Francorchamps but will instead delay his debut until May 13.
Lowndes has a storied history in the Australian Touring Car and Supercar championships, including three series titles, seven Bathurst 1000 victories and a five-time recipient of the Barry Sheene Medal.
The 109-time race winner retired from the sport full-time back in 2018 where he has since maintained his connection with Triple Eight Racing as the squad’s leading co-driver.
The sixth round of the series will see the field return to North America with races at Circuit of the Americas and Sebring.
Should Lowndes make an Eseries appearance, the 45-year-old will join a growing list of top-tier motorsport talent to have experience a taste of the virtual championship – including Formula 1’s Max Verstappen and Lando Norris, IndyCar’s Will Power and NASCAR driver Joey Logano.
More details are set to be revealed shortly.
Round five of the BP Supercars All Star Eseries gets underway tonight from 8 pm NZT on Sky Sport 5 and via the official Supercars Facebook page.
