In our first article, we introduced you to ForceOne. In our last article we introduced you to his competition. Today, we’ll check out quotes from each of the top contenders in this years Forza Motorsport 7 WGN Championship.

ForceOne believes that he has the most to gain from winning the WGN Championship this year. The 20 year old driver for Lazarus Esports is the youngest of these three competitors, and has the least experience racing at the top level of Forza Motorsport competition:

“I feel like I have a chip on my shoulder heading into this event because I haven’t yet earned a signature win that shows I can be the best. In terms of skill, I think I have what it takes to put up a fight against anyone in the pro-scene, but I still don’t seem to get quite enough credit as a result of my inexperience and age.”

Similarly, Venom feels that winning here would further solidify his standing as the best in North America and arguably one of the best in the world. He is unshaken by the prospect of once again facing off against ForceOne and Lightning:

“I’ve been racing ForceOne and Lightning for a couple of years now, so I know their on-track tendencies. I think the 3 of us are quite close in skill so it will come down to who has put in the most effort and who can keep their nerves in the Finals.”

Aside from the bragging rights and coveted title of ‘fastest’, there is much to gain from this tournament. With a first place prize of $7,500 and a trip to the Motul Petit Le Mans for a full track day experience, there are plenty of reasons to feel the pressure of competition. When asked what he would do differently in order to stand out from the other drivers Lightning said that he would:

“Practice, but not practice so much that it hurts me.”

The pressure builds now as these racers now wait for the other finalists to qualify at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto, Canada. Once all 16 finalists are confirmed, the gloves come off and they will face off on Sunday, February 23rd. There is no room for mistakes. Who will come out ahead and stand above the others atop the podium?

Which racer are you rooting for? You can catch all the action as this rivalry comes to a head during the Forza Motorsport 7 WGN Championship finals on February 23rd at 12pm on the WGN Twitch channel.
