Forza Motorsport has been on the forefront of competitive racing for years and 2016 has proven to be the biggest year yet. The first half of 2016 has been a momentous one for Forza Motorsport 6 and its commitment to competitive online racing and esports. There are currently three million players racing in Forza games every month, competing in events such as June’s Le Mans-timed Michelin 24 Hour Forza Challenge and Audi 24 Hours of Le Forza Contest, where over 700,000 unique viewers tuned in. In addition, recent Forza Motorsport 6 FIA Formula E Race Off competitions garnered over 600,000 unique viewers.
In early June, we announced the Forza Racing Championship (#ForzaRC), our all-new competitive online racing and esports program. This is the largest competition in Forza history, and we are proud to announce that the inaugural season begins on August 8 and registration is open as of today – go to ESL to sign up.
Players from across the world, and of all skill levels, can compete for amazing Forza and Xbox prizes throughout the month of August, while the best Forza players in the world will lay it all on the line for the ultimate prize – the all-new 2017 Ford Focus RS. Arguably the most acclaimed hot-hatch of the decade, the 350-horsepower Focus RS has wowed fans and critics alike with its track-bred performance and its sleek and sophisticated lines.
Whether you’re racing royalty or just getting started, we’ve got a place for you in ForzaRC. We designed the competition to be a place where players of all skill levels can participate and have a great time competing for awesome prizes. The first season of ForzaRC will include both an Elite Series and an Open Series available to all players. Each series will follow a slightly different path, utilize different modes in the game, and have different prizes available to winners. The common link between them? Everyone is invited to compete!
Check out ForzaMotorsport.net to learn more the rules for each series and how to sign up.
Good luck to all the competitors!
