RaceSpot TV are proud to continue their partnership with BMW, having broadcasted every BMW 120 and SIM GT CUP Race on iRacing, as well as providing full sim racing broadcast coverage at BMW SIM LIVE since 2019*. RaceSpot Live Events have also been responsible for overseeing the Race Control, Stewarding, and on site sim related technical support at BMW SIM LIVE since 2019 (Both when events were on site and virtually).

RaceSpot Live Events are responsible for managing the results of the BMW M SIM CUP 2023. As a part of this, RaceSpot Live Events are also responsible for providing stewarding overview of the drivers and teams who finish in the Top 10 of each race, to ensure that participants conduct themselves within the spirit of fair racing, and are authorised by BMW and their partners to investigate and apply penalties where incidents cause moderate – significant disadvantage to other teams by intentional / ‘at fault’ contact, unsportsmanlike behaviour, and failing to adhere to core racing rules and regulations.

This page provides an overview of activities for the series, as well as a summary of the incidents and outcomes for each race, details of each race (Including broadcast links and replays), as well as confirmed results and standings. For further information, please visit the BMW SIM RACING DISCORD.

*We didn’t do coverage of the rFactor 2 event in 2020. Just a part of our keeping stuff honest policy.
