Play Forza 6 with Senna and Prost in the Formula E Race Off at the Gfinity Arena, or simply come to watch others play!
Formula E drivers are no stranger to the pressure of delivering a fast lap and have grown accustomed to the tight confines of a cockpit. That’s all about to change when Bruno Senna and Nico Prost revive a classic rivalry to launch the first in a series of Forza 6 fan gaming events at the Gfinity Arena in London!
Instead of the more familiar noises of buffeting wind and screeching tyres, the drivers will have to get used to the buzz of the Gfinity Arena in London, the UK’s only dedicated eSports venue, to put their skills to the test on Forza 6 on the Xbox One.
Fans will get the chance to compare their best lap times with other Forza players and go wheel- to-wheel with their favourite drivers streamed live across Formula E’s official Twitch and YouTube channels.
The Formula E Race Off starts at 11:45am and will be concluded by 17:15 on Saturday 23rd January 2016.
Mahindra Racing’s Bruno Senna said: “I’m looking forward to the challenge of driving the Formula E car in a game rather than on track. There is a proven record of drivers learning real-world racing skills in the virtual world before they ever take to the track. I hope it also works in reverse so Nico and I can have a proper battle!”
Nico Prost, driver for Renault e.dams, said: “It’s a cool idea to get fans together to race in a large venue and it’s going to be a unique experience. I’m looking forward to meeting the fans we’ll be racing on track and taking on Bruno in a different kind of environment than we’re normally used to.”
