The Forza Racing Championship has returned! Following a thrilling first season of competition, registration is now open on the ESL website for Season 2 of the official #ForzaRC esports series. Sponsored by Michelin, Logitech G and Playseat, and starting Nov. 7, Season 2 players worldwide will compete for cash and prizes worth more than $150,000.
For the first time in ForzaRC series history, the events will take place across two Forza games – Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Motorsport 6. Building on the success of the inaugural season, Season 2 will bring players of all skill levels together to experience state-of-the-art racing and fun competition through two unique race series.
In the Elite Series, the fastest drivers in the world compete in Forza Motorsport 6 to claim the title of Season 2 champion and a $10,000 cash prize for the top overall winner. Building on Season 1, the Elite Series in Season 2 will offer more ways to win over 100 cash prizes.
The Elite Series is comprised of three weeks of racing competition. 160 drivers will compete each week, with the top 32 drivers entering the Elite Series Showdown races to battle for entry to the ForzaRC Grand Finals. The 128 drivers that do not qualify for the Elite Series Showdown can continue to compete in the Elite Series Consolation Cup each week for a chance to continue building their skills and win prizes.
Fans can watch the Semi-Final races live hosted by ESL and streaming live on the official Forza Motorsport Twitch and Beam channels, beginning Nov. 13. The Grand Finals will be broadcast live from ESL’s studios in Burbank, CA on Sunday, Dec. 11.
The ForzaRC Recreation Series will be held entirely in Forza Horizon 3, giving players the chance to get competitive across the open-world environments of Australia. Starting today and over the next seven weeks, players can compete in the Recreation Series by setting a time in special ForzaRC Rivals events created in Forza Horizon 3. Additionally, players will have a chance to win exciting Horizon Edition cars in Forza Horizon 3 that are currently unavailable by any other means, such as the 2017 Ford GT Horizon Edition, just for participating each week.
The stage is set for Season 2 of the Forza Racing Championship! Be sure to check out ForzaMotorsport.net for more details on dates, prizes and how to sign up today.
