This Saturday, Forza Motorsport 7 will again provide the arena for a gripping race where French team Red Bull Esports will have the chance to showcase their talent. The Le Mans Esports Series competition is one of the most prestigious competitions using the game produced by Turn 10 and is enjoying another action-packed season. This is the fourth round for the 24 professional teams, after three other races at Le Mans, Silverstone and Austin.
RED BULL ESPORTS FAVOURITES AND THE COMPETITION HOTTER THAN EVER
The Red Bull Esports team is enjoying a string of successes. They took the top spot at Silverstone and again at the Circuit of the Americas round. Aurélien 'Laige' Mallet and Alexandre 'Asix' Arnou will be aiming to get the upper hand once again at the Sebring race this weekend. Mallet will be competing in the longer race, while Arnou will be in command for the sprint.
The professional Esports team will be battling out for the fourth time this season and the pressure is rising! Lazarus Racing are still at the top of the table (146 points) but Red Bull Racing Esports are hot on their heels (141 points) with Total Performance Racing in third place (112 points). But perhaps another team will take everyone by surprise this weekend? A team like Team Fordzilla, the official Ford entry, for example? There is everything to play for so make sure you watch! Go to: Twitch LMES, Motorsport TV, Facebook LMES, or the 24 Hours of Le Mans Youtube channel for live streaming tomorrow from 19:00-21:00 UTC.
This weekend’s race will be held on the Sebring circuit with the #66 Ford Racing GT Le Mans. The drivers have been gearing up for the event for several days now and we’ve already seen some special liveries on display.
Alongside this race for pro Esport teams, a special challenge for gamer-drivers from around the world comes to an end this weekend. You have until 29 March to try and clock the fastest time possible around Sebring with the Ford GTE. FRF Tooyz currently tops the standings with 2:01.387 ahead of WIL Handicap (2:01.437) and FRP Energy (2:01.657). See if you can do any better with the Ford GTE on Forza Motorsport!
