Can’t get out to the track this season and really want to some racing time? Go virtual! iRacing has begun its 10-week long BMW M Power Tour, a virtual-racig collaboration with BMW that features a variety of BMW M cars racing on top tracks. The event started in late April, but will go strong for several more weeks.

BMW M is a staunch supporter of automotive gaming, with their website stating, “Since 2019, automotive gaming has been one of the pillars of the BMW M Motorsport program alongside works and customer racing.
