While Supercars had to be called off this year, motorsport fans can still get their fix with a virtual 'fundracer' this month.
Supercars Pro Eseries has teamed up with Breast Cancer Trials for the 'Pink Fundracer' to raise vital funds during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Drivers in the 2020 Pro Eseries go head-to-head on the track, and will also race each other to the top of the Pink Fundracer leaderboard with each driver committed to raising critical funding for breast cancer research.
From now until Round 1 of the Eseries, fans are encouraged to support the challenge by sponsoring their favourite driver or team.

The cars will be decked in pink for Round 1, which will be broadcast live on Fox Sports, Kayo, Supercars Facebook, Twitch and YouTube on October 28 from 8.30pm.
Breast Cancer Trials fundraising and philanthropy chief operating officer Julie Callaghan said unfortunately, even during a pandemic, more than 20,000 Australians will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
"Pink Fundracer offers a unique opportunity to participate in a fun and impactful fundraising event from the safety of our own homes," she said. "This partnership will help minimise the impact COVID-19 has on our ability to continue research and will help change the future for all women and men at risk of breast cancer."
