Since its release, Forza Motorsports has proven itself one of the best racing games available on the Xbox One and of the past ten years overall. With its latest entry, Forza Motorsports 6, Microsoft is constantly upping the ante with new updates like the recent NASCAR feature. The next entry will be no different.

A few days ago, the software giant announced that Forza Racing Championship is set for a summer release and will take advantage of up to 600 Forzavista cars. Furthermore, the competition will be open to anyone, no matter where they may live.

It doesn’t matter if you’re the ultimate noob with no idea how to play the game, or if you’re the best virtual driver in the entire universe: the Forza Racing Championship is open to all. Players can also win real prizes, and not just some useless digital trophy.

Here’s the full description:

To celebrate the upcoming Forza Racing Championship, and with just days to go before the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing competes in the 84th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 18 and 19, beginning today codes for the 2016 #66 Ford GT Le Mans race car in Forza Motorsport 6 will be sent via Xbox Live messages to all gamers who have played Forza Motorsport 6. [NOTE: Due to the large number of codes to be sent, it could take up to seven days for players to receive their code].

To accompany the release of the Ford GT LM race car, we’re also launching a brand new Le Mans-themed Rivals event in Forza Motorsport 6 this week. Find out how you stack up against your friends and the community. And, be sure to watch the 84th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 18 and 19.

We expect Microsoft to reveal more about the Forza Racing Championship at E3 2016 in the next few days. We also expect it to be announced for Windows 10 as well.

Not too long ago, Microsoft released Forza Motorsports 6: Apex for Windows 10. While it’s not the full version of the game, it’s a relatively decent substitute. Microsoft also released an update that makes it possible for gamers to run Forza Motorsports 6: Apex on multiple GPUs, a feature fans have long requested for games coming from the Windows Store.
