The 2020 Supercars season could run into early 2021 in a bid to complete a full championship season amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The series managed to complete one event – the season opener in Adelaide last month – before the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced the Albert Park cancellation and postponement of the Tasmania, New Zealand and Perth events.

Supercars still harbours ambitions to complete a full 14-event schedule in 2020, with plans already being discussed to replace the cancelled Albert Park event. That would likely mean the return of a circuit left off the 2020 calendar, such as Phillip Island.

Daniel Abt fined for cheating in virtual FormulaE race

Published

on

Racing driver Daniel Abt was disqualified from a virtual FormulaE race on Sunday after admitting getting a professional gamer to take his place at the console instead.

Abt was also ordered to make a “compulsory donation” of 10,000 euros ($AUD 17,000) to charity and stripped of his third place finish.

Pro esports gamer Lorenz Hoerzing, 18, had replaced Abt in the “sim” for the race around Berlin-Tempelhof.

The 27-year-old Abt raised suspicions because his video camera was switched off during an interview, and later the face of the driver was obscured by an object.

“I’d like to apologise to FormulaE, all the fans, my team and my driver colleagues for calling in outside help during Saturday’s race,” the German said in a statement on Sunday.

The outcome of round five of Formula E’s esports Race at Home Challenge was under a stewards’ inquiry on Sunday amid claims a “ringer” had taken the place of Audi Sport’s Daniel Abt and finished third.

Saturday’s 15-lap race around a virtual Berlin Tempelhof track was won by Britain’s Oliver Rowland for Nissan e.dams with Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne second for Mercedes.

“Really not happy here because that was not Daniel driving the car himself, and he messed up everything. Really ridiculous,” Vandoorne said on his Twitch stream after an incident during the race.
