Munich. The 2020 BMW sim racing season kicks off with a real highlight on Sunday at 19:00 (GMT), when the popular BMW 120 events on the iRacing sim platform enter their next round. The venue is the ‘Daytona International Speedway’. Each team will consist of two drivers, who alternate at the wheel of a BMW M8 GTE.
 
The ‘BMW 120 at Daytona’ also heralds the intensive phase of preparations ahead of the opening round of this season’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Just two weeks later, BMW Team RLL will take to the actual Daytona (USA) track, where it will be out to repeat last year’s victory in the GTLM class at the season-opener.
 
At each BMW 120 race, the two winning drivers can look forward to a cheque for 1,200 US dollars each – and a starting place at the season finale. The second and third-placed teams will receive 1,200 and 600 US dollars. This year, BMW works drivers will once again regularly take part in BMW 120 races. BMW Team CATENG – consisting of Nicky Catsburg (NED) and Philipp Eng (AUT) – has its sights set on a strong result at Daytona.
 
At the same time, iRacing is organising the new BMW 12.0 Series. The BMW M8 GTE will be the car of choice for these 12-minute races, which take place on different tracks every week. The sprint championship debuted at the start of December and is very popular among the 100,000 plus active iRacing users. In total, the BMW M8 GTE has already been selected for a wide range of races almost 120,000 times by drivers on iRacing.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
