Forza Fuel Announce
This September, Forza Horizon 2 will deliver to fans a beautiful, immaculately constructed world full of action-packed open-world racing, stunning vistas, dramatic weather and dynamic time of day, set in the beautiful landscape of Southern Europe.
Turn 10 and Microsoft announced today that the exciting world is being brought to life, and from September 15 – 18, 8 teams representing some of the biggest racing countries in the world will traverse the roads inspired by the game in Italy, France and Spain, behind the wheel of some of the world’s most exclusive supercars, including the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, 2014 McLaren 650S and the game’s hero supercar – the Lamborghini Huracán.
Each day, teams will go head-to-head in a series of daily Car Challenges inspired by Forza Horizon 2, including racing against a helicopter and taking on a high-intensity rally track. Fans are invited to join the competition at home and with each challenge, they can compete along with teams to earn currency called #FORZAFUEL. As they follow the challenges and acquire #FORZAFUEL, fans at home will get involved too, competing to earn extra fuel for their chosen team in daily Fan Challenges set by their team captains - key YouTube influencers from the gaming community.
At the end of the #FORZAFUEL road trip, the team with the most #FORZAFUEL will receive the best prizes – which include an Xbox One, a copy of Forza Horizon 2, a GoPro, a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and more. The more fuel teams earn, the more prizes available – the outcome is up to them!
The #FORZAFUEL route starts in Bologna, Italy, where contestants will meet their first challenge – “Get to the Choppa” – where teams will go head-to-head with a helicopter to earn #FORZAFUEL. Next they are onto Monaco, with its prestigious car heritage, where they will use live Twitch Live Stream to help complete their challenge. After two more epic, Forza Horizon 2 inspired supercar showdowns, the road trip culminates on the vibrant streets of Barcelona.
The beautiful scenery, idyllic roads and iconic locations promise a road trip to remember, and plenty of great action. Fans at home will also be tasked with a challenge set by their team captains to earn #FORZAFUEL for their team and the best entry will win an additional bonus prize.
What happens next? You’ll have to stay tuned for more.
