The Toronto auto show is offering an eSport Forza 7 contest that will give show-goers the chance to win over $10,000 in cash and prizes. If you want to drive real cars not virtual ones, ten automakers will let you test out the electrified offerings. Plus there will also be more exotics on display than ever before.
eSport Gaming will come to the Canadian International Auto Show for the first time this year. The competition is open to anyone with a show ticket. If you want to try your hand at turning the fastest lap, the competition will have a daily King of the Track format. Gamers will drive the track of the day in Forza Motorsport 7 on Xbox, playing by using one of a selected group of BMW vehicles. The quickest driver each day will get a call back to the Grand Finale on February 25th for a chance at the prizes.
