Trillium's SIM Racing League On Now

The League provides fun and friendly competition that will give you some track fun when you can't be on the real track. We welcome all Trillium Members, regardless of your sim racing experience. Our practices are hosted each Sunday from 3:00 - 5:00 pm with the races held every Monday night from 7:30 - 9:30 pm. The league is free for Trillium members, so sign up today. To participate in the Trillium BMW Sim Racing League, here are the steps you need to follow:

1) You need to be an active Trillium member
Sign up or renew your membership at https://www.trilliumbmwclub.ca/membership

2) You need an iRacing subscription
If you’re not an iRacing subscriber yet, please do that first, here: https://www.iracing.com/membership

The 1-year and 2-year iRacing subscriptions provide the best value, but if you’d rather go short-term for now, you can get started with a monthly or 3-month subscription.

During the iRacing sign-up process, make note of your iRacing Member ID and also dig up your BMW CCA Member number. You will need them for step 3.

3) You will need to register on Motorpsortreg.com
Head to MotorsportReg to sign up (free) for the league, here: https://msreg.com/trillium-sim-league2021

4) You will need to be running Discord
Most communications for the League including driver meetings and in-race chats will be held in Discord, a free online app that provides an easy way to talk over voice, video, and text within a community. Register and download the Discord app (free for your computer and/or phone) at https://discord.com

5) If you are new to iRacing, you need to get oriented
Do your best to get yourself oriented in iRacing in advance and at try some practice laps on your own. There is a lot of iRacing help/content on YouTube to help you get started, including this one:

6) Equipment
To participate in the league, you will need to have a basic set-up:

  • a racing wheel and pedals installed on your PC and configured
  • a decent Internet connection (iRacing indicates that 256 Kbps will work), but we recommend that you have a healthy Internet connection to maintain reliable connectivity and performance
