Microsoft and Gfinity have revealed the complete racing schedule for the Forza Racing World Championship finals being hosted in London, England on the weekend of October 20th.

We’re just one week away until the biggest and most exciting Forza esports event in history, as 24 of the best drivers on Forza Motorsport 7 will come together in the English capital to battle it out for their share of the $100,000 prize pool – the largest in Forza history, as well as the title of the 2018 Forza Racing World Champion.

 

As revealed on the Forza Racing World Championship Preview Show earlier this week, the full schedule of races for next weekend has been made public. These were voted on by viewers as the show aired live this past Wednesday, and the variables included the tracks to be raced on, their associated weather conditions, and the cars that will be used by drivers.
