Palou Dominates Opening Round of INDYCAR iRacing Challenge

Alex Palou is tipped by many observers to break through for his first NTT INDYCAR SERIES victory in 2021, as he moved to powerful Chip Ganassi Racing during the offseason. But Formula One veteran Grosjean, a rookie in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, almost didn’t make the race on time. So, Grosjean thought he had an extra hour to sleep before waking to race. NTT INDYCAR SERIES driver Pietro Fittipaldi, also competing in the iRacing INDYCAR Challenge, briefed his groggy friend and teammate Grosjean on pit strategy and race rules shortly before the start. NTT INDYCAR SERIES rookie Scott McLaughlin has entertained fans since he moved to America from Australia last fall, detailing his adaptation to American life on social media through posts with the hashtag #ScottLearnsAmerica. “My tires are shagged,” McLaughlin said on Twitch during the duel with Karam. NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers are ultra-competitive whether their strapped into their race cars or their virtual racing sim rigs, so it didn’t take long for some aggravation to start in the first round of the INDYCAR iRacing Challenge. Champ Car raced at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve from 2002-06, but one competitor tonight in Round 1 of the INDYCAR iRacing Challenge thinks the circuit also would be a fun place to race in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. Lastochkin, who races in Indy Lights, was a substitute for Conor Daly in the No.
