Fiercely competitive ISOWC gets underway this weekend at legendary Watkins Glen circuit

iRacing’s leading Indycar championship, ISOWC gets underway this weekend (8 May, 6:00pm UTC) and YAS HEAT ESPORTS has high hopes for the opening round of the series – a 60 lap race around the iconic Watkins Glen (Boot) circuit.

The iRacing squad qualified for the series fresh off the back of a third-place overall in the Sports Car Open (SCO), against the likes of team SIMMSA Esports and Team Redline to name but a few.

João Vaz, meanwhile, set an outright world record during the NTT Indycar Series at the Circuit of the Americas, suggesting that the team should be able to fight at the sharp end of this championship.

The line-up for the series comprises YAS HEAT’s finest iRacing competitors in the form of the aforementioned João Vaz, Balázs Remenyik, Josh Lad and Dean Woods.

Balázs Remenyik, iRacing Driver, YAS HEAT ESPORTS said:

“It’s been a while since there was such a high-level, open-wheel series on iRacing and I’m really happy to be a part of it. The car is new for us but everyone in the team is working hard to make sure we arrive to the first race in the best shape possible.”

Josh Lad, iRacing Driver, YAS HEAT ESPORTS said:

“It’s good to be back in the open-wheelers but the competition is much more experienced in the car so it’s definitely going to be a challenge.”

Dean Woods, iRacing Driver, YAS HEAT ESPORTS said:

“It’s a pleasure to be invited to this invitational series. With my fellow team-mates alongside, I’m highly motivated and believe my team and I can achieve something special in this series. We haven’t driven the car prior, the learning curve is high, but we’ll be all-out attack when the green flag falls.”

ISOWC 2021 kicks off on 8 May, at Watkins Glen with the conclusion of the 6 race series getting underway on 31 July, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
