AMR’s talented Formula Virtual driver Felix Beyer has joined Kannan GP for the inaugural IndyVirtual season and will make his debut in the triple crown races, the only events he will compete in for this season.
Canadian Outfit 'Cerberus' who are technical partners with FV team Ocelot have announced that Puccio Giodano will race for the team during the Triple Crown. Giodano joins Simon and Powers who also recently announced their participation. This will mark the first time since 2015 that Giodano will be alongside his former teammate and now reserve driver for Ocelot Enzo Domenicalli. It is yet to be confirmed which number Giodano has selected for these events.
Giodano had the following to say when approached by the press. ''First of all, it's fantastic opportunity to be able to be alongside Enzo again, we both had a great time during our time at Rossi where we pushed each other. So it'll be really good fun to be racing with him again. As for Indy Virtual, it's a fantastic upcoming series and something I will keep my eye on in the near future should I decide to leave Formula Virtual, especially as this series is like a tour around the US which has always been one of my dreams.''
The Inaugural race in IndyVirtual history was won by Brock Kidd for American Engineering after a hectic race in which the leader retired from the race no fewer than three times, culminating in the leading pair colliding with two laps to go.
Nick Addison has taken pole position in the first ever IndyVirtual qualifying session, with a lap nearly half a second quicker than any of his rivals.
Keith Murphy edged out his IndyVirtual rivals as pre-season testing for 2017 came to an end, with just 1.2mph separating the fastest car from the slowest.
Brock Kidd became the first American to lead a day of IndyVirtual pre-season testing as he topped the standings for American Engineering ahead of five drivers who all tied with the same maximum speed.
Lewis Ellington topped the time sheets on the opening day of the final pre-season test as the all new IndyVirtual cars had their maiden run on an oval. Predictably it took a few drivers a while to adjust, with five red flags interrupting running.
Hiroto Nakumaya topped the final day of the first IndyVirtual pre-season test at Sebring, though none of the times got near Marcus Thunder's fastest effort so far from day one as persistent rain caused havoc with teams running.
