Microsoft has announced the details of the inaugural Forza Racing Championship. The first season of the tournament, based on the Xbox One game Forza Motorsport 6, will include an Elite Series where the winning driver will get a free car.
The official Forza site has the details on the new eSports tournament, which begins on August 8. The Elite Series is strictly for the top Forza drivers in the world, and the winner will get a 2017 Ford Focus RS as their prize. Other prizes include Xbox One S consoles, Elite controllers, Logitech gaming wheels and more.
The Open Series will allow any Forza Motorsport 6 racer to participate, although only qualified drivers will be able to win prizes. Microsoft says:
Competitors in the ForzaRC Open Series will be vying for Forza Motorsport 6 prizes, including codes for Forza Motorsport 6 DLC like the NASCAR Expansion, the Porsche Expansion, and the Forza Motorsport 6 Car Pass. In addition, each week, all participants in the ForzaRC Open Series League will be sent a special bonus car – the 1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III – with a custom ForzaRC Open Series livery that will be unique for each week of competition.
