Supercars has partnered with Forza for a Bathurst showdown.
Players will compete online through Forza Motorsport 6’s RIVALS mode, where the fastest eight drivers set by lap time will win an expenses-paid trip to compete in the Challenge Finals, held at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
Here at the Challenge Finals, they will compete in the brand-new Forza Motorsport 7 over four action-packed days to see who will be the first ever Harvey Norman Supercars Forza Challenge Champion. The challenge finals will not only see the drivers race head-to-head, but also in a special All-Stars race paired up with a current Virgin Australia Supercars Championship driver.
