In our last article about the upcoming Forza Motorsport 7 WGN Championship happening February 23rd at the 2020 Canadian International Autoshow at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, we shared the story of ForceOne and his rivalry with Raceboy77. Today we’ll learn about some of the other players vying for that top spot.

Among some of the top contenders looking to stop ForceOne are Zach “Venom” Taylor and Taylor “Lightning” Stomski, who have both experienced a considerable amount of success on the world stage. Venom and his team – Red Bull Racing Esports – won the world championship in the 2019 ForzaRC. Likewise, Lightning has been a perennial finalist in the Forza Racing Championship, having won the first-ever ForzaRC invitational in New York back in 2017. These two Americans share a wealth of experience and accolades throughout their Forza Motorsport careers, and they look to add to that with a win in this year’s WGN Championship.

With the three best drivers in North America set to meet on stage in Toronto, ForceOne believes there is an intense rivalry brewing:

“For the past couple of years, there has always been an argument over who was the best driver in North America. Depending on who you ask, any of our names could come up. Personally, I think each of us believes that we are the best, but there hasn’t really been enough evidence to prove it. This event is the first opportunity in my career where all of the best drivers in our region are on track, at the same time, in the same equipment. In my opinion, it feels like this WGN Championship is just as much about winning as it is about bragging rights.”

It is clear that while these three drivers have a massive amount of respect for each other, they also have a lot to prove. That was evident from the start of the qualifiers when ForceOne, Lightning and Venom shared the top 3 positions in the first qualifier leaderboard.
