Forza Racing Championship Season 2

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 November 7, Season 2 players worldwide will compete for cash and prizes worth more than $150,000.

 

For the first time in the 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 of Forza Racing Championship, 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 both the title as the 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, culminating in weekly Elite Series Showdown races that will be broadcast on Sunday of each competitive week beginning November 13. Players can watch the Semi-Finals races hosted by ESL and streaming live on the official Forza Motorsport Twitch and Beam channels.

 

Four winners from Season 1 will be invited directly into the Season 2 Grand Finals Roster, having qualified by winning their weekly Elite Series Showdown or the Grand Finals: Laige, Shadest, BAM ASIX 13, JSR Razer JDM.

 

Each week, four Semi-Finals winners will move on to the Season 2 Elite Series Grand Finals, which will be broadcast live from ESL’s studios in Burbank, CA on Sunday, December 11.

 

 

The ForzaRC Recreation Series will be held in both Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Motorsport 6. Starting today (10/28) 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 and in Forza 6. Players will have a chance to win exciting Horizon Edition cars in Forza Horizon 3 that are currently unavailable by any other means.

 

The stage is set for Season 2 of the Forza Racing Championship and registration is open now. Whether you’re ready to sign up right away or you want to know more about which series is the best fit for you, here’s everything you need to know for ForzaRC Season 2:
