Microsoft is excited to share that the Forza Racing Championship (ForzaRC) Season 3: The Porsche Cup 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, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), creator and organiser 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 programme 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.
