Forza giving Ford Focus RS to ESL champion


Dust off your controllers and Xbox One, because Forza is giving away a 2017 Ford Focus RS. The player that comes in first at ESL's Forza Racing Championship tournament in September will drive away in the hatchback. The largest Forza championship to date is split into two different tournaments – the Open and Elite series – and starts on August 8 with weekly competitions. While registration is open for both series, only players competing in the Elite series have a shot at winning the car.

Registration is open to everyone, but players have to place in the top 128 during one of the three qualifying weeks. Then, players have to place in the top 16 in that week's series cup and lastly need to place in the top four in that week's showdown, as well. The finals event will take place on September 4.

While the Focus RS is the best and most expensive prize up for grabs, players competing in the Elite series also have the opportunity to win other prices including in-game cars and liveries, Xbox One S consoles, and Xbox Elite controllers. Players competing in the Open series will have a similar weekly competition with the top 50 percent winning in-game content, which includes DLC packs.

Racing from the Elite series will be broadcasted on Twitch with the weekly finals and grand finals being broadcasted live from ESL's studios in Cologne, Germany. The Forza Racing Championship will be the first esports tournament to give a real car away as a prize.

    Will Ford's SUV blitz include the Bronco?

    Ford announced this week it will add four sport-utility vehicles in the next four years, an ambitious bet on a segment the industry once shunned. This led to wild speculation about what form these utes will take. Here's what we know: They will be new nameplates, and Ford is thinking globally. That means at least one might not be a product with US intent. They will also be in segments where the

    The Basics: Ford is recalling 75,364 Explorers (and Police Interceptor Utility Vehicles) for what could be a really big issue. The campaign affects 2014-15 model-year vehicles manufactured between January 17 and May 31, 2014.

    Ford Mustang was almost 'Imported from Detroit'

    The Ford Mustang achieved iconic status nearly the moment the sheet came off at the 1964 World's Fair. And if Henry Ford II wasn't getting divorced around that time, the pony car might have been called the Torino and been marketed as 'Imported from Detroit,' according to Automotive News. We'll explain. During research for the new book Once in a Great City: A Detroit Story, author David
