It seems a bit too early for Season 4, so I wouldn't be surprised if this is a Chinese-exclusive sub-season.

Personally, I don't see ForzaRC Season 4 happening until the release of Forza Motorsport 7.

Considering how it is in July. I would not be surprised if it was indeed there. Usually you get 1 to 2 weeks notice before the actual event, so that is just enough time for qualifiers and then the final.

It's a legit source. I am sure it is indeed season 4. Besides, no one likes waiting so long in between seasons.

Hopefully it will turn into a format more like league where you have small kind of local tournaments, a mid season invitational, more small local tournaments, and a big final where the best performers throughout the local tournaments qualify to the once per year grand finals. I want to see more regional tournament a like Forza Le Audi so that the fiasco that just happened in. Season 3 with the Le Mans travel expenditures are mitigated. That way everyone can attend their local tpurnament (local as in NA, EU, Asia, Oceania, etc), and then the best performers in those tournaments go to a big event somewhere. Get what I'm saying?

Or just do national championships for more populace countries and regions for the rest.

I for one loved Forza Le Audi last year and I know Asix and Anto loved the event they had at Le Mans last year. It would be awesome to see more of those local ones throughout the world!

The first qualifier is about to start fyi. Went into the messages section in-game and got a rivals recommendation for it.

The rival message states, for our players in China, to go online to register to compete.

Can we confirm if this is a China/Asia event only?

Confirmed to be only for China. They will take the top 8 Chinese players from each qualifier. That basically means everyone who participated from China will get to go. Lol.

Excellent opportunity for Chinese players. The larger and more diverse the community, the better it will be for everyone.

Even if they are dreadfully slow it will still get a lot of views at the event. I'm sure many will see how bad they are and think that they could do much better which may bring in some great players.

I mean it's China. There has to be thousands of great unknown Forza players.

Here are the final results from ChinaJoy. Tied in points, ChicPizza edged out Jrich921 for the win thanks to a lower combined time. They're part of the Mordor Game Club: www.mordorgameclub.com/
