Indianapolis, Indiana (April 22, 2020) – Juncos Racing is pleased to announce Maximiliano Lezaeta, Gregorio Dorso, Austin Espitee, and Leandro Juncos have joined the Juncos Racing eSports. Lezaeta, Dorso, Espitee, and Juncos will represent Juncos Racing in multiple series on the r-Factor and Gran Turismo Sport, and iRacing platform.

 

 

Juncos Racing Team Owner Ricardo Juncos has added many talented Simracers and professional drivers from around the world to the Juncos Racing eSports program since the eSports team was first announced last month. The team currently competes in the Ricmotech Road To Indy Presented by Cooper Tires iRacing eSeries, the INDYCAR iRacing Challenge, and the Super TC2000 Sport.

“We have been working hard to build up our eSports program with drivers from all types of racing backgrounds including the real-life racing and Simracing,” said Juncos. “These four drivers we have announced today are very talented across many platforms and series. We are thrilled that Maxi Lezaeta, who is rated one of the top simracers from Argentina and currently runs for our Super TC2000 Sport team, will now compete in multiple iRacing series. We are looking forward to working with Austin Espitee as he is such a high-level simracer and has won many open-wheel simracing events. Gregorio Dorso, who is our current eSports Director, not only brings many years of experience as a simracer, but he has been a driving force to grow the eSports world through his high level of understanding of Simracing on multiple platforms. Finally, I am very happy to add my son Leandro Juncos to the iRacing team, who already drives for our Super TC2000 Sport team, as he will be competing with the top drivers from around the world.
