Intro to the Trillium Sim Racing League

Your BMW CCA Trillium Chapter has a Sim Racing League! The League provides fun and friendly competition that will help you get through the long, cold winter. We welcome all Trillium Members and BMW CCA Members, regardless of their sim racing experience.

What You Need To Become a Trillium Chapter Sim Racer

1 – Sim Racing equipment. You will require a computer (PC) that can support sim racing, along with a steering wheel and pedals (gaming controllers can be used, but we do not recommend this). Voice communication with all drivers is necessary, so you must have a built-in or plugged-in microphone set up on your computer. A headset with an integrated microphone is the most effective setup. Just like with real-life motorsports, your equipment costs can vary widely depending on what you want/need and there are many options. If you aren’t sure if you have what’s needed, please visit the iRacing System Requirements page at  https://www.iracing.com/membership/system-requirements/

2 – An iRacing account. If you don’t already have an iRacing account, please go to https://www.iRacing.com and register. New Members can currently enjoy up to 50% off the full cost. You can go month-to-month or sign up for a longer period to enjoy a lower monthly cost. Please note that there are additional charges for certain cars and tracks, but those are a one-time cost.

3 – Join the league by sending an email to simleague@trilliumbmwclub.ca. We will send you a welcome email with all of the details for the league.  Once you have registered, you will receive a welcome email with additional details on getting into the iRacing league and onto the Discord network we use to communication about race season schedule, as well as to use voice channels for in-practice and in-race radio conversation.

4 – Some practice time. Once you are in the league on iRacing, we will have hosted practices and sessions to introduce iRacing to new sim racers. You may also practice on iRacing through test drives, AI races, or series races hosted by iRacing. The Trillium league will host practices and races on a weekly basis during our scheduled seasons.
