RaceDepartment proudly presents its second official Assetto Corsa racing league - the Virtual BMW M235i Racing Cup!
Since it arrived on the scene, back in November 2013, many have been excited about the prospect of an Assetto Corsa based championship. Drivers and organisers alike have eagerly awaited the game's readiness such that it is suitable to play host to a no expenses spared racing league, and so the time has finally come to get things underway again!
The BMW M235i Racing, which boasts 333 bhp from its straight-6, 3.0 litre engine, will be the weapon of choice for this series! In spite of being deemed only a cup car, it oozes all of the racing potential that you would expect from a car bearing the infamous M logo that has been worn by many of BMW's historic, pedigree racers! Its barest roots are in motor racing, which is evident from the sound of its thundering engine and the sight of its tail wagging; certainly a step-up from the comparatively ordinary and everyday Coupé! In the real world, the M235i Racing is primarily sold by BMW Motorsport to privateer teams that compete in a single make BMW Sports Trophy, ideal for entry-level cost-effective racing, as well as the Nürburgring 24 Hours.
The league will take participants on a tour of Europe, and will allow them to battle it out for the top spot at some of its most iconic circuits, including Silverstone, Donington, Imola and the Nürburgring.
Four rounds of racing stand between the drivers and the winner's trophy, with the addition of an unclassified test race. Events will take place on a Wednesday; each will begin with a 15 minute shootout to determine the grid positions, followed by a 100 km sprint race. In addition, there will be a live stream with professional commentary for the YouTube audience.
