New York, NY - May 1, 2020 - Having scored a notable podium P3 at Sebring at the opening round of the season, on tarmac, Trans Am SGT pilot Adrian Wlostowski would doubtless rather be behind the wheel of his Super GT Ford Mustang this weekend. However, while we wait for the resumption of the action to resume on track, the Esports racing is heating up with a virtual trip this weekend to Road Atlanta for Round 2 of the 2020 Trans Am by Pirelli Esports Championship.
The Esports action has been a hit with fans starved of the competitive thrills and spills that characterize Trans Am sports car and muscle car racing. The advent of the excellent new Trans Am multimedia smartphone app could not have come at a better time for the sport as it allows us all to watch all the racing - virtual and real octane - in real time. It's a tremendous boon to our sport and sure to please followers and boost popularity.
Round 2 of the Trans Am by Pirelli Esports Championship continues Sunday, May 3 at 3pm Eastern at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. Hurley leads in the standings by 12 points over Kicera heading into Round 2. The Esports Championship follows the same scoring as the regular Trans Am season with the top drivers fighting for more than $20,000 in cash and prizes. The event consists of open practice, an online driver briefing prior to qualifying: qualifying (10 minutes), Race #1 (20 minutes) with Race #2 also 20 minutes with starting positions based on the inverted finishing positions in Race #1.
Adrian Wlostowski represents F.A.S.T. Auto Racing, based in the Maspeth, Queens District of New York City where they run a high performance automotive shop aimed at competition motorsports and street performance. F.A.S.T are sponsored by Forgeline and Hawk Performance. Like the rest of us, Adrian and the F.A.S.T. Auto Racing team are looking ahead to June when the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli is set to resume at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, June 21.
