Caruso to make debut Esports start in ARG eSport Cup
Esports | May 6th, 2020
Veteran Supercars driver Michael Caruso will make his virtual racing debut in Thursday’s ARG eSport Cup round at the Phillip Island circuit.
He has been supplied a simulator by Melbourne Performance Centre, which is also providing equipment to team’s leading driver Garth Tander.
Previously, ARG had been alternating between the two types of cars after every round.
“It’s pretty exciting, because I’ve never done any online racing,” said Caruso.
“I’m very new to the world, but it’s good. It’s a new challenge, and having never done it, there’s a bit of excitement. I’ve been watching the races and there’s plenty of action.
“Seeing how everyone gets the most out of the them has been good to watch, but let’s see how we go tonight and have some fun.”
In the real world, Caruso is due to contest a full campaign in TCR Australia in a GRM Alfa Romeo this season and has also signed for a Supercars enduro role with Tickford Racing.
V8 Touring Car driver Harley Haber heads Trans Am ace Nathan Herne and Renault TCR driver Dylan O’Keeffe in the ARG eSport Cup standings after five rounds.
