This weekend, nine of the best virtual racers in the world will converge on London’s Battersea Park to compete in the FIA Formula E Race Off Pro Series Championship finals in Forza Motorsport 6. Running alongside with Formula E’s real-world Visa London ePrix season finale on July 3, the Race Off Pro Series will see competitors racing online for a €15,000 prize fund, one of the largest Forza eSports prize pools to date.
Fans will be able to watch the race live on the Formula E/ESL channel beginning at 9 a.m. London time (1 a.m. Pacific) on both Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3.
As a setup to this competition, earlier this year in March, Forza Motorsport 6 fans from around the world competed to qualify for the Race Off Pro Series finals by participating in a collection of special Rivals qualifying events and live online semi-final races. The nine competitors in the Race Off Pro Series Championship finals will include winners from each of the semi-final events and are among the most skilled virtual racers in the world.
The Race Off Pro Series Championship finals are presented by VISA and in partnership with ESL, and will also be aired on the official Formula E YouTube channel and on television in the UK via GINX eSports TV. Fans can also keep track of the action by following the official Forza Motorsport and Formula E Twitter accounts and by using the hashtag #RaceOffPro. Be sure to check it out!
