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 inaugural season in the BMW SIM 120 Cup was already nerve-racking. And now it’s off to Interlagos for the grand finale (drum rolls 🥁).— BMW Esports (@BMWEsports) November 4, 2020

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).
