Get involved with ForzaRC in 2017
The New York Invitational is just the beginning for ForzaRC in 2017. Registration is now open for ForzaRC Season 3: The Porsche Cup – the most inclusive racing eSports programme and home to the largest online racing community in gaming. Players can participate in two different competitions in Forza Motorsport 6 for Elite drivers and Forza Horizon 3 for casual players. Players will get the chance to race in a wide variety of Porsche models over four weeks of intense competition, culminating in a finals event at a special location, where winners will take home $100,000 in cash prizes.
The tournament will for the first time see the gaming elite compete in mixture of nail biting online and offline events and Gfinity’s bespoke platform is perfect to showcase all of the thrill and spills.
The partnership helps to further establish Gfinity as a leader in international eSports tournament design and execution. In addition to running the tournaments for ForzaRC, we will also be broadcasting the online races weekly via Twitch and Beam. The hosting of ForzaRC also runs alongside our own Elite Series, a world-class eSports tournament where amateur gamers have a chance to be drafted to a professional team.
