After a successful debut in the 2020 season, 2021's BMW SIM Cups offer an even wider range of race formats, cars and simulator platforms for races to take place.

The BMW SIM GT Cup, BMW SIM M2 CS Racing Cup and BMW SIM Time Attack offer the world's best sim racers the opportunity to qualify on the iRacing, rFactor 2 and Assetto Corsa Competizione platforms for the grand finals at BMW SIM Live 2021, and to win attractive prize money. The races will be streamed live on the BMW Motorsport social media channels.

The new M4 GT3 will be the car of choice for Season Two of the BMW SIM GT Cup
The BMW SIM GT Cup is the successor to the BMW SIM 120 Cup. Divided into two seasons, a total of 10 races will take place in 2021. In the five rounds that comprise Season One, sim racers go head to head in teams of two in the BMW M8 GTE.

In Season Two, the new BMW M4 GT3 will be the car of choice for the teams. The winners of the first four races of each season qualify directly for the grand final at BMW SIM Live 2021. They are joined by the top two teams in the fifth race of the respective seasons. A total prize purse of $5,561 is up for grabs for the top three teams in the first four races of each season.

As in 2020, the races are 120 minutes long and include a mandatory driver changeover. The dates have already been confirmed for Season 1 in the BMW M8 GTE, with the opening round taking place at the virtual 'Daytona International Speedway' on 17 January 2021. The dates and circuits for the second season will be announced at a later date.

The dates for Season One are 17 January 2021 at Daytona, 7 March 2021 at Suzuka, 21 March 2021 at Silverstone, 2 May 2021 at Road Atlanta, and the final will be at the Nurburgring on 16 May 2021.

The 2021 BMW SIM Cups will see races taking place at various iconic tracks from around the world
2021's BMW SIM M2 CS Racing Cup features as a support series for the popular and top-class rFactor 2 GT Pro Series, and features the same car, same simulation platform, but a new format.

As a result, the BMW one-make cup will take place at different racetracks (it was previously held exclusively at the Nurburgring and on the Nordschleife). As with the BMW SIM GT Cup, two seasons are planned over the course of the year. Each will consist of six races. The action gets underway on 8 March 2021 at Imola.

The dates have already been confirmed for all the races in the first season, with the dates for the second season to follow later. The winners of each race will qualify for the final at BMW SIM Live. The top three at each event will share a total prize purse of $3,000.

The first race for the BMW SIM M2 CS Racing Cup will be 8 March 2021 at Imola, 22 March 2021 at Spa-Francorchamps, 5 April 2021 at Silverstone, 19 April 2021 at the Nurburgring, 3 May 2021 at Sebring, and the last race will on 17 May 2021 at a yet to be determined location.
