TORA announces the WIX Racing TORA Touring Car Championship




Regular visitors to TORA may have seen that we were very pleased to be able to bring you the most enticing touring car series to date courtesy of Forza Motorsport 6's excellent array of real world touring cars from both NGTC and WTCC specification.
Today, we are proud to announce that TORA's premier 'tin-top' series will enjoy the support of top level British Touring Car Championship team, WIX Racing.
Those familiar with the British Touring Car Championship will know of the WIX Racing Mercedes A Class driven by Adam Morgan since 2014. The popular driver has already tasted victory in the UK's biggest racing series and now you can get a taste of what it is like to race door handle to door handle by driving his Mercedes A Class in Forza Motorsport 6!


TORA president Matt Hunter said;
"We are proud to welcome WIX Racing to both TORA and Forza Motorsport. Touring cars are one of the two major pillars of TORA's championship history so to have real NGTC cars in game and the support of a major team in the real world championship is a big deal for us."
"Touring car racing is fantastically popular and always draws in great numbers as well as capturing the imagination of track-side fans both old and young. Indeed my own association goes back over twenty years! We hope to capture the same enthusiasm with our latest championship"

A six round calendar will take in both real world BTCC venues plus a number of Forza 6 circuits that have the characteristics and feel of the championship. These will promote the close racing action everyone comes to expect from the premier touring car series for Xbox One.

The WIX Racing TORA Touring Car Championship kicks off at Brands Hatch on the 10th November.

Calendar
Round 1: Brands Hatch Indy - Nov 10th
Round 2: Lime Rock South Chicane - Nov 24th
Round 3: Road Atlanta - Dec 8th
Round 4: Silverstone National - Jan 5th
Round 5: Hockenheim National - Jan 19th
Round 6: Brands Hatch GP - Feb 2nd

We are currently running a Tuesday BTCC series using the very same cars and its close, all the cars even when they look different can run the same lap times, they suit each style of driving so everyone should find a car they like.

If anyone would be interested in helping us by hosting lobbies for this it would be very much appreciated. Smile

xebot - Lime Rock will be the standard full circuit. I'm playing with the chicane variants to see whether they feel more 'touring cars-y' but unless stated when sign ups open it'll be the main circuit Smile
