Forza Racing World Championship dates and venue announced

07 September 2018


Details about the upcoming Forza Racing World Championship (ForzaRWC) were announced by Turn 10 Studios through a press release.

The Forza Racing Championship was created by Turn 10 Studios in 2016. Two years later, the competition has its first regular season divided into two series. Series 2 of the Forza Racing Championship finished on August 29, now the drivers are getting ready for the next event.

The actions start on September 29 in Mexico City. For two days, 36 drivers are competing at the ForzaRC Series 2 Playoffs for a cash prize of $75,000 (£58,000). The top 24 is moving forward to the next stage of the competition, the ForzaRWC.

This year, the final event of the season is taking place at the Gfinity Esports Arena in London from October 20 to 21. In London, the top 24 drivers are racing for a cash prize of $100,000 (£77,000). The competition will be streamed through Mixer, the streaming service owned by Microsoft.

The ForzaRWC is more than a competition, it is a full experience where fans get rewarded for enjoying the show. Through Mixer, viewers can earn rewards and vote for race features. Those watching on Twitch can test the ForzaRC extension and earn in-game prizes.

ForzaRWC is hosting a special live stream on October 10, after the ForzaRC Series 2 Playoffs to reveal more details about the drivers, special guests and the viewer’s rewards.

Tickets for the event are available online.

Esports Insider says: The ForzaRWC has evolved since its beginnings back in 2016. Now the competition is going to London with a bigger prize and a bigger show. Racing competitions are coming back and growing, this competition is a clear example of the rewards for the viewers and the experience they offer.
