Our second half of Winter season is here and we will be broadcasting live again! We will compete non-stop for 7 weeks starting in January across top US race tracks! Join our NCC iRacing league and fellow BMW drivers for some serious racing this winter!

NCC’s Sim Racing Program is looking forward to another successful year in 2021. We are looking to expand and upgrade our program for its second year, to include providing live-broadcasting coverage for each race, which would be a great opportunity for your company to advertise! We have multiple levels of sponsorship available. If you’re interested, please email: simracing@nccbmwcca.org for more information. Thank you!

Please visit Facebook for weekly announcements.
Please mark your calendar and help spread the word!

BASIC LEAGUE RULES:

  • This is a friendly, community-based, non-contact sim racing league (i.e. no hitting!)
  • Blocking: there's NO blocking in this league
  • Flag rule: in this league, if you're under the Blue flag (i.e. you're a lap down, etc.) then you must YIELD to the faster car coming up behind you where it's safe to do so and quickly. Use the iRacing radio button to communicate that you see them and let them pass where, etc. if you can.
  • You must respect other drivers skill levels and speed – i.e. yield when/where you can, make safe and clean pass when/where you can, etc.
  • Your actions will be monitored and noted, certainly in the first 2 laps and will be reviewed by your fellow drivers after the race if you cause incident(s).
  • Similarly, at any time, if you drive overly aggressive and cause incidents to others (i.e. knocking them out of race, etc.) then you may be asked to sit out the next race.
  • Intentional targeting, hitting, or retaliation will not be tolerated.
  • If some of these rules are frequently violated and ignored, then you can be removed from this league!
  • Remember, race hard but keep it CLEAN. Be nice to each other. We are in this together!

“The cars may be virtual, but the race is REAL!”
