Munich -- The maiden season of the newly established sim racing series V10 R-League is underway. On the first two match days BMW Motorsport SIM Racing Team delivered one win and one defeat. Three of the four team members are in action on each match day and do battle for the win against some of the biggest names in sim racing in three different race formats.

For BMW Motorsport SIM Racing Team, Team Redline driver Kevin Siggy (SLO), Cem Bölükbasi (TUR) of BS+COMPETITION and Coque Lopez (ESP) of Williams Esports contested the first two events. These are made up of three race formats: Head-to-Head, Relay Race and Team Race using a virtual single-seater car developed specially for the race series. At the opener, BMW Motorsport SIM Racing Team was defeated by the Porsche24 Redline team while on match day two a clear 3-0 victory over JAESA Team Suzuki followed. Siggy's wealth of experience of the sim racing platform Assetto Corsa saw him secure the BMW victory and nominated 'Driver of the Day' among the drivers of all eight teams on match day two.

In an interview, Siggy talks about his return to the BMW Motorsport SIM Racing family and the special challenges of the V10 R-League.

Kevin, after winning the 'ABB Formula E Race at Home Challenge' in the virtual BMW iFE.20, welcome back to the BMW Motorsport SIM Racing family!

Kevin Siggy: "Thank you very much! I feel honoured that those in charge at BMW Motorsport SIM Racing selected me as a driver for the V10 R-League after the 'Race at Home Challenge'. It's an important step in my career as a sim racer."

How have your first experiences with your colleagues at BMW Motorsport SIM Racing Team been?

Siggy: "We have a lot of fun together. It's cool training with them and chatting during the sessions and races. It's important in the V10 R-League to work as well together as possible as a team, which we're working on."

What does that work look like?

Siggy: "I am the one in the team with the most experience on Assetto Corsa, so I coach my team-mates and give them tips wherever I can. Personally, I mainly drive on the rFactor 2 platform. The transition from there to Assetto Corsa is relatively easy, as long as you have driven on the platform before. For the others, for whom Assetto Corsa is totally new, it is much harder to learn all the tricks for being fast. It's particularly difficult to adapt to the totally different driving physics if you are coming from iRacing."

What was your highlight at the team's first win on match day two?

Siggy: "Definitely the Team Race. My team-mates consistently kept the car in the top four, and I only had to observe to keep up with the Suzuki driver leading on the track. We knew that he would be awarded a penalty for ignoring the track limits multiple times, which he was, and we won. I also drove my fastest time in that race, which made me 'Driver of the Day'.

How is it driving the car developed specially for the V10 R-League?

Siggy: "I'm not a huge fan of single-seater cars generally, but I was pleasantly surprised by the handling of this car. I really enjoyed racing in it. The preconfigured set-up in particular makes it easy to drive. The V10 engine is also pretty cool. The only problem is the tyres at times, which overheat quickly."

How is your sim racing career going otherwise at the moment?

Siggy: "It's going very well. I'm still under contract at Team Redline, and we already have a few plans for the future.Also I am still driving for BMW Motorsport SIM Racing Team in the V10 R-League. We'll see how things progress. I definitely really enjoy racing for BMW."
