ForzaRC will host a private week-long test event in Los Angeles, CA later this month with select invited teams from the professional esports community, developer Turn 10 Studios revealed in the latest edition of its Forza Motorsport Week in Review.
According to the announcement, the purpose of this invite-only event is “to test a number of variables the team believes will play an important role in the continued evolution of ForzaRC, including various competitive formats, exploring new on-screen talent, the broadcast production, and more.”
“2018 was a fantastic year of growth and learning for the Forza Racing Championship,” said Turn 10’s Community Manager Brian Ekberg. “Since last year’s Forza Racing World Championship in London, the Forza Esports team at Turn 10 has been diligently working behind the scenes on the future of ForzaRC, with an eye towards continuing to iterate on and evolve the experience for both viewers and competitors alike.”
Joining Turn 10 for the test will be drivers from four professional esports teams in the Forza Motorsport community. They include Sauber Esports, Red Bull Racing Esports, Lazarus and Williams Esports. “These teams will be a critical part of the test, going hands on and providing direct feedback on the various elements tested throughout the week,” Ekberg noted.
However, don’t expect to see any official livestreams or media coverage from the event, as this one is being treated as a private test and as such, there won’t be any public broadcasts or social media promotion for it. Turn 10 says the results of this test won’t be kept secret forever, with details about the event and this year’s ForzaRC plans to be shared in the months ahead.
“This is going to be an intense and exciting week of experimentation and learning, all with an eye towards the future of ForzaRC,” Ekberg added.
