Fernando Alonso takes on the Indy 500 in THE RACE Legends Trophy

After his debut last weekend, Fernando Alonso takes on the Indy 500 in THE RACE Legends Trophy.

Last weekend, Fernando Alonso joined the already star cast Legends Trophy, in the All-Star esport battle by THE RACE. He showed brilliant pace in the practice sessions leading up to the event and topped it off with qualifying in 4th place on his sim racing debut. The races themself didn’t go as well, but it was clear that the two time Formula One world champion and 24 hours of Le Mans winner - quite easily adapted to the virtual part of motorsport. Since he left Formula One back in late 2018, he’s been targeting the Indy 500 in his quest to claim the Triple Crown, which so far only has been achieved by the great Graham Hill. This weekend, THE RACE is hosting a special edition of their Legends Trophy series, where Alonso will be racing against the likes of Jan Magnussen, Dario Franchitti and Emerson Fittipaldi at the brickyard on rFactor 2. The 2020 edition of the Indy 500 was originally scheduled to take place on the 24th of May, but amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, it was rescheduled to the 23rd of August. That doesn’t hinder the Spaniard in his attempt to get a taste of being only the second person in history to win the Monaco Grands Prix, 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Indy 500. The entry list for the Legends Trophy at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is as follows: Fernando Alonso Mario Andretti David Brabham Jenson Button Helio Castroneves Tom Coronel Mario Dominguez Emerson Fittipaldi Adrian Fernandez Gil de Ferran Dario Franchitti Bryan Herta Michel Jourdain Jr Tony Kanaan Vitantonio Liuzzi Jan Magnussen Tiago Monteiro Juan Pablo Montoya Max Papis Emanuele Pirro Jason Plato Andy Priaulx Scott Pruett Mika Salo Oriol Servia Petter Solberg Darren Turner
