Microsoft and Turn 10 definitely aren't shy about turning the Forza Motorsport series into a competitive gamer's dream. They've unveiled the Forza Racing Championship, a company-run league (no third-party collaborations here) that invites anyone to race for real prizes. Most details aren't available yet, but the championship will kick off with Forza Motorsport 6 in the summer. And don't worry, you'll still get something out of it even if you have no intentions of making a name for yourself. Anyone who has played Forza 6 is getting a code for a free Ford GT Le Mans car, so you'll have something new to try when you're racing purely for fun.
