Congratulations to Frenchmen CAR Laige for defending his title and winning his second Forza Racing Championship over American CAR Lightening! This was the second time it came down to the two of them, and for the second time the Frenchmen prevailed.
CAR Laige was predicted to win by the IFCA computer with CAR Lightening predicted to come in 2nd, and so it was. The Frenchman Laige appears to be the top dog in all the land, with the young American, CAR Lightening a very close second.
Lightening has but 2 less points overall than Laige in the combined point totals from both season 1 and season 2. Even so, Lightening has the higher rating and is now the new #1 on the IFCA World Rankings List because Laige finished a distant 4th as he tried to get around the #6 ranked driver in the world JSR Rayzor JDM, in the third and final race of season 2 at Laguna Seca.

A new year, a new era!

Greetings members and friends!
It's that time of year again when we review where we are at, and where we are going. The time of the year that is often full of racing activity and a kind of off season as well.
The IFCA has made the transition from league racing to ratings body and will endeavor to pursue and promote league and club competitions in the future. Expect to see race coverage and interviews going into 2017 from all the popular leagues, clubs, and racers. Our goal is to act as a promotional catalyst for the racing community. To provide a central place that everyone can quickly tap into and have a look at what is going on in console simulation racing. To do this well, we will need your help, your input, your interest, and participation. So tell a friend about the IFCA and we will do the rest.
Hopefully everyone has had a chance to review the details about the updated ratings formula and how ratings are calculated. Some have asked why it is that TX3 Laige is not #1 since he won season 1 of the ESL ForzaRC? The answer is, because he doesn't have enough races yet, and his performance though good was against drivers who were at the time not at their peak ratings. It takes about 12 races for a rating to level off, and Laige only has 6 to date.
When it comes to the ESL ForzaRC we are only rating the quarter finals, semi-finals, and finals.
As of this writing, these are the top 10 Forza drivers in the world.
We are looking forward to an exciting 2017 season of racing, so be sure to post your league/club results, or send them to me, or post a link to the results and we will run the data through the IFCA ratings computer for you.
Hope to see you on the track!
