The coming week has plenty to offer for the sim racing community! A total of four different events await fans – most of them coming to us next weekend, with one kicking it off on November 8.

Final round of the BMW SIM Cup ahead

After round 5 in September, the BMW SIM 120 Cup 2020 is finally heading into its next and final races on November 8. The final race will take place at Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, Brazil. The champion of the series will be decided after a 10-minute qualifying round and the following two-hour-endurance race.

The previous race in Atlanta was won by KOVA esports’ Tuomas Tähtelä. Although Team Redline driver Max Verstappen made it to third and then second place throughout the race, he wasn’t able to finish on the podium: a technical issue on one of his wheels briefly threw him onto the grass and cost him ten positions. The race therefore went to KOVA esports’ Tuomas Tähtelä and Valtteri Alander.

Join BMW’s stream of the finale at 3:30 PM CET (9:30 AM ET).

iRX moves to Lucas Oil Raceway

New week, new round of the 2020 iRacing Rallycross World Championship! After last Saturday’s sixth round of the tournament, the seventh is already around the corner, set for November 14. This time, racers move to Lucas Oil Raceway.

As of round five, Jon Robertson is in first place in the overall standings, as are Team Yokohama in the team ranking. Yohann Harth comes in second while Mitchell deJong occupies third place, also catching third place for his team Subaru Motorsports USA.

Last year’s champion Mitchell deJong still has three rounds left to go to win back pole position and secure his title once more. However, he faces some strong competition. The race for first place on November 14 will be streamed on iRacing’s official YouTube channel at 1 PM ET (7 PM CEST).

Repco Supercars Pro Eseries wraps up first half

The Repco Supercars Pro Eseries closes its first half with round 3 on November 10. After Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya in the previous races, drivers will now compete at Mount Panorama in two enduro races.

With three wins, Joshua K Rogers is the most successful driver of the season so far. The other three wins of the six races were secured by Dayne Warren, Madison Down and Sam Blacklock. Watch the next two gripping races on Supercars’ YouTube channel at 7 AM CEST (1 AM ET).

Swiss Simracing Series in last quali round

The Swiss Simracing Series 2020 will enter its last qualification round before the big finale on December 6 in Zurich. Round #2 of the live qualification phase will be held on Magione from November 13 to 15.
