Four months ago, the second season of the Forza Racing Championship kicked off the largest eSports event in Forza history, with players from all levels being invited to compete across Forza Motorsport 6 and Forza Horizon 3. This Sunday, the ForzaRC Elite Series Grand Finals will conclude this second season and the 16 finalists are now getting ready to compete for a grand prize of $10,000.
The Grand Finals will be live streamed and Forza Community Manager Brian Ekberg has revealed today on Xbox Wire what you can expect from the event. Expect several special guests to comment the racing skills of the best Forza players you've ever seen, but you'll also be able to win some goodies during the broadcast, especially if you watch it on Beam:
The Grand Finals will feature special guests from the Forza development team, as well as Global Rallycross driver and television personality Tanner Foust, who will be appearing as a guest analyst. Viewers will also get an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming Blizzard Mountain Expansion for Forza Horizon 3, releasing on Dec. 13, and the chance to win a copy during the broadcast.
This Sunday’s Grand Finals broadcast will also see our first ever Viewer Sweepstakes, where registered viewers on Beam will be eligible to win one of 25 prizes, including a trip for two to Ingolstadt, Germany for a once-in-a-lifetime Audi R8 driving experience.
