Video Gamer in Forza vs. Benoit Treluyer in Real Life at COTA


Editor’s Note: Forza’s tie-in with Audi is more than skin or pixels deep. The Forza gaming platform has been tied with the four rings for some time now, which often realizes benefits like unique access to Audi. Case in point is a recent experiment whereby a skilled Forza gamer took on Audi Sport driver Benoit Treluyer in a head-to-head, Forza-vs-reality shootout at the wheel of an Audi S3.

Watch it below and then check out full details in a press release from Forza below that.

With 460 cars, 26 world-famous locales and 24-car multiplayer, Forza Motorsport 6 is the ultimate racing game. But what does it take to be the ultimate driver?

To celebrate the launch of Forza Motorsport 6, Xbox and Turn 10 Studios searched for the best Forza drivers around the world to compete in the Forza Fuel Challenge. While more than 225,000 Forza fans put their virtual driving skills to the test, only 10 of the fastest competitors and 10 wildcard entries made it to Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, to battle it out in a series of challenges with support from their team captains Ali-A, NadeShot and VintageBeef.

After three high-speed races, all broadcast live on Twitch, Xbox crowned Raceboy77 as the winner of the Forza Fuel Challenge. But then we asked: can they beat a professional race driver at their own game?

The team selected Benoît Tréluyer, a three-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner and FIA World Endurance Champion, to answer this question and put Raceboy77’s driving skills to the ultimate test. The two battled it out in true Forza fashion, racing an Audi S3 on the Circuit of the Americas. So, who came out on top? Check out the video to find out.

For those wanting to test their own racing skills, pick up a copy of Forza Motorsport 6 today.
