ForzaRC Season 3: The Porsche Cup to Make History at the 24 Hours of Le Mans

It seems like just yesterday that we kicked off the Forza Racing Championship (ForzaRC) Season 3: The Porsche Cup, which is currently in full swing through May 28. Today, we’re excited to share that the 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 bridging real-world motorsport and racing esports, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), creator and organizer 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.
