Lando Norris has confirmed that he will partake in next weeks BP Supercars All Stars ESeries event after debuting in last nights event at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.
Norris’ pace in last night’s event was good enough for third in qualifying. However, his race results were hampered due to multiple incidents, most of which were beyond his control.
Despite these setbacks, Norris lauded the Supercar, claiming it to be one of his favourite cars to drive in the iRacing simulation, and subsequently confirmed his participation in next week’s event.
He also revealed his interest in competing in the real car. Something that may happen, considering McLaren boss Zak Brown owns the 2011 Bathurst 1000-winning Holden Racing Team Commodore and is part-owner of the Walkinshaw Andretti United Supercars team.
“We went to a track day once a couple of years ago. I didn’t get to drive it there but he said he’d allow me to drive it if we ever go out on a track day again in his V8.
“I would love to. Especially because it’s so fun to drive on a simulator. I’m sure it’s even better to drive on the actual race track. Yeah, it’s a handful but in a good way. It’s a lot of fun to drive.”
Norris will compete in next week’s event which will take place at the Circuit of the Americas and Sebring International Raceway.
