Online endurance race will be streamed on Twitch this weekend.

With the famous 24-hour Le Mans endurance race right around the corner, Audi of America has decided to organize a similar event in the gaming world. This weekend in downtown San Francisco, 12 teams of professional gamers and the finalists from the Audi 24 Hours of Le Forza Contest will race each other in Turn 10 Studios’ Forza Motorsport 6 video game exclusive on the Xbox One.

To make it feel more like the real deal, gamers are going to wear full racing suits and helmets during the digital endurance race which will be streamed on Twitch for everyone to enjoy. The first team to cross the virtual finish line after 24 hours of racing in Forza 6 will win a trip to Sonoma, California for a real-world Audi sports car experience.

Second place team will be awarded with a trip to Austin, Texas in September to attend the 2016 Lone Star Le Mans race. A shiny new Xbox One video game console bundled with a copy of Forza Motorsport 6 will be given to team that will finish in third place.

Getting back to the real world, Audi Sport will attempt to score its 14th overall victory this weekend during the 84th edition of Le Mans, but it will have to face some stiff competition coming from Porsche which dominated the first qualifying session.
