But the New York Invitational will be more than just racing. During our two days of broadcasting on Saturday and Sunday, we’ll feature not only fantastic wheel-to-wheel action, we’re also happy to welcome drifting into the ForzaRC for the very first time, thanks to our friends at the esports Drift Association (ESDA), who will be taking part in a special drift exhibition performance on Saturday. In addition, we’ve got special guests lined up, including Forza creative director Dan Greenawalt, Porsche factor driver Matt Campbell, and more.

Clearly the Invitational is must-see for Forza fans. The good news is we’ve got lots of ways for you to get your ForzaRC fix, whether in person or online. If you’re in the New York City area, this event is open to the public and will be held at the Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue. Simply drop by the store when the doors open and you’re in!

For those of who can’t join us here in NYC, we welcome you to watch online. The shows start at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern on both Saturday, April 15 and Sunday, April 16 and you can watch at any of these official Forza channels:

There was some good racing all around. The broadcast quality has also improved from previous ForzaRC's.

It took a bit to figure out from the broadcast, but Matt Campbell's lap time challenge of 01:06.078 was set in a stock Porsche 918 Spyder at VIR South layout if anyone wants to test their Forza skills against a professional racing driver.
