Gamers rev up for Xbox Forza quest
SUPERCARS has launched a national e-Sports competition with a challenge leading into this year’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
With the Bathurst circuit and Supercars a feature in Xbox’s Forza motorsport franchise, a national challenge will be held to find the best Aussie gamers.
The Harvey Norman Supercars Forza Challenge will be contested online in September and October with players clocking their best lap time in a virtual Supercar around Mount Panorama.
There they will be paired with some of Supercars’ top drivers including defending champion Shane van Gisbergen, current championship leader Scott McLaughlin and former Bathurst winners Chaz Mostert and Nick Percat for an All-Stars Challenge.
Fellow Supercars drivers David Reynolds, Lee Holdsworth, Simona De Silvestro and Alex Rullo, 17, will also co-drive in the All-Stars Challenge.
The challengers will compete during a live finals event across a 10-race championship to determine the winner.
