So, how does it work!?

Initially – we will have a round of hotlaps in the BMW M2 CS Cup car starting from the 6th February until the 13th February.   The top 30 drivers will then compete in the live broadcast race on the following Wednesday at 20.00 CET.

We will then have qualifiers prior to each race with the top 30 taking on the race.

What do I need to start?

Before you begin, if you haven’t already, you will need to have a copy of rFactor 2 installed and the BMW M2 CS!

If not, there are a few steps required to get going.

Step 1

Firstly create a Steam account, download and install rFactor 2 here

Then you will need to purchase the incredible BMW MS CS here.

Once installed, we suggest you setup your wheel and options in single player.

See here for a guide on what to do with your install

Alongside our code of conduct,  just some hotlap/time trial rules, we will be reviewing all laps that qualify in the top-30 and performing spot-checks, those that do not observe correct driving may have their lap removed or will be disqualified (DQ)

  • Observe the track limits at all times, if we observe track cutting that is unrealistic with all wheels in an off-track position the lap will be invalidated
  • Do not use off-tracks prior to the lap starting to gain speed
  • Do not use external software to modify performance
  • Respect your competitors

Good Luck!
