Team Redline’s Maximilian Wenig and Maximilian Benecke took top honors in the top split of the BMW 120 at Daytona International Speedway on January 12. They led the car manned by teammates Jonas Wallmeier and Gianni Vecchio to the line by just over a second. Williams Esports Chillblast teammates Alexander Voß and Laurin Heinrich completed the podium.

The event, a follow-up from successful races promoted by iRacing and BMW in 2019 and the first of a six-race series in 2020, attracted big names in sim racing and real racing alike. Team CATENG, comprised of BMW factory drivers Nicky Catsburg and Phillipp Eng, returned to action and finished 13th in the top split. NASCAR superstar and eNASCAR iRacing World Championship team owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. also made an appearance, teaming up with TJ Majors to finish 10th in their split.
