Turn 10 Studios and Gfinity have revealed the full set of car and track combinations for Series 2 of the 2018 Forza Racing Championship season. Played on Forza Motorsport 7, the latest entry into the acclaimed racing franchise from Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios, these combinations will see drivers compete in cars from different eras of motorsport. For example, Round 1 saw drivers using classic automobiles from the 1960s and 1970s, whilst Round 2 switches things up to the 1980s.

Like Series 1, Series 2 will feature bi-weekly Rivals Qualifying events, each of which are followed by the Ghost Races, Sunday Heats and Wednesday Showdown livestreams, as well as a Rivals Booster event. In a change from the first series, the Rivals Qualifying events have been shortened from 72 hours to 48 hours following driver feedback.
