Forza Motorsport 7 Race Regulations goes into open beta

Approaching two years into its life, Forza Motorsport 7 is still getting regular new updates and the latest is geared towards the competitive community. The latest incarnation of the Forza Race Regulations ruleset will be available from some time today, April 11, and this time it's an open beta for anyone to try out.

Up to now, Turn 10 has been working with invited players from the competitive scene on the Forza Race Regulations, but is now opening that up to all players via a dedicated in-game hopper.

To access Forza Race Regulations:

  1. Start the game.
  2. Go to multiplayer.
  3. Select the Forza Race Regulations Beta-Hopper from the list.

The Forza RC official championship is one of a number of esports series that uses Forza Motorsport 7, with others including the official Le Mans esports series and Apex Online Racing's Touring Car Championship. Race Regulations will provide, finally, a true competitive ruleset that should help to solve issues such as lengthy post-race adjudications as has been the case in the past.

Whether you're an aspiring professional racer or just looking for something a little more serious to enjoy in your virtual racing, the Forza Race Regulations mode should provide what you're looking for. Turn 10 hasn't provided a specific time the mode goes live, so keep an eye on their socials for further announcements.

  • Be alright if they fixed the game so it launches and doesn't crash. Try a reinstall of Windows and still no go. All other forza games work perfect. This seems to be a common problem.
  • Not had any issue on my Windows 10 pc for this or other forza games
  • Maybe other application, driver or background service is breaking the game on your PC.
  • The joys of pc gaming....
  • The joys of UWP...
  • Nothing wrong with UWP. It's just a secure wrapper for applications. It's also up to the developer on whether they want their game to be secured or not. UWP games from Microsoft are also optimized to an absurd degree and have lower level hardware access than a regular .exe because they are trusted. Too many misconceptions and false information about UWP and the Windows Store. It's ridiculous and it was started as clickbait worked because people believe it and the clickbait garbage that still comes out about it.
  • Riight! There is absoluetely NOTHING wrong with UWP and windows store.
    I guess Spencer doesn't know what he is talking about when he said this in 2016
    and again this last november Noo. UWP is perfect because d0x3601 says it is....
    Ok then...
  • An issue with Windows Store doesn't necessarily equate to an issue with UWP, the two things are mutually exclusive.
  • Can't be that common, I'm on the Forza forums and reddit constantly and I never see it, at least not as an issue with the game. Perhaps it's time for a Windows reset and a check on all your firmware and drivers. If that doesn't fix it run memtest86 because Forza 7 and Horizon 4 on PC are solid as a rock and extremely well optimized.
  • Got double posted.
  • It will not, it is a dedicated multiplayer mode.
  • Well some of the changes made to to make mp better are now part of the single player game as options or they are just there. They have been making changes to fm7 instead of doing there usual release a new game ever other year so the fm7 of today is significantly better than it was even a year ago. Plus all the tech is being share between studios so both fm7 and horizon 4 have benefited quite a bit.
  • Just got done w/ 3 races and ummmmmm, lets just say this not what you were trying to do Turn10.... at least i hope not... the wreckers can actually do more harm.
  • And im still getting kicked out of lobbys for no reason i can start in first never get touched and run clean laps and I KEEP GETTING KICKED!!!!!!
  • Get in the forums and drop this as feedback. The system is still a WIP, without reporting issues like this they'll never get fixed :)
