    It seems like just yesterday that we kicked off the Forza Racing Championship (ForzaRC) Season 3: The Porsche Cup, which is currently in full swing through May 28. Today, we’re excited to share that the Elite finals will take place in France during the most prestigious endurance race in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, from June 17-18 – making it the largest racing esports event ever hosted at Le Mans. To mark this historic occasion bridging real-world motorsport and racing esports, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), creator and organizer of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, made an entirely new category for esports competition: the Official Endurance Esports Category. After the esports race, the winner of the ForzaRC finals will accept a trophy on the same 24 Hours of Le Mans podium as the winning Le Mans drivers.



    As the most inclusive racing competition in gaming, ForzaRC is an esports program where players of all skill levels compete and hone their skills. We’re thrilled to partner with Porsche and the ACO to bring the world of esports to the motorsport community, while sharing our passion for real-world competitive racing with people of all ages.

    The Forza franchise, home to over four million active users per month, Porsche, the most successful brand in motorsport with more than 28,000 total race victories including 18 wins at Le Mans, and the ACO, organizer of the world’s most prestigious race, have created an unprecedented racing event that will be making history this June.

    We invite you to join us on June 17-18 by tuning into the Beam livestream, Twitch or YouTube. See you on the track!

      Well played Turn10! :beer:

      I hope this partnership will bring us a lot more than this (WEC grid and circuits for example). With this happening only a few days after E3 I'm hoping for a nice Forza Motorsport 7 tie in and there couldn't be a better place to showcase a 24 hour day/night cycle. (and the Vantage GTE of course ;))
