Fans of Turn 10's Forza Motorsport series might want to make note of the developer's latest online challenge, as it's offering nine qualifiers a chance to be flown out to New York to try out its next project - which, surely, is Forza Motorsport 3.

The Forza Motorsport 2 LIVE Challenge, beginning today, will allow Xbox Live users to submit their fastest time around the Sebring International Raceway in a 2006 Audi #2 FSI Champion Racing R8. The nine quickest drivers will be sent out to New York City on June 13th, where they'll play Turn 10's "next big thing". Oh, and they'll also get to compete in a Final Challenge for prizes worth $20.000.

As self-confessed fans of the series, we'd (almost) be willing to give up the $20,000 for a chance at playing Turn 10's upcoming title. Yet, somehow, we don't fancy our chances of being in the top nine quickest in the world. Still, if you reckon you're up for it, you'll find the details below.

What: The Forza Motorsport 2 LIVE Challenge Qualification

When: May 15, 2009 at 12:00a.m. Pacific Standard Time to May 20, 2009 at 12:00p.m. Pacific Standard Time

Where: Forza 2 Online Leaderboard "Forza Motorsport LIVE Challenge"

How: After signing in to Xbox LIVE launch Forza Motorsport 2 and select "Multiplayer" from the main menu. Select "Tournaments" and look for a tournament called "Forza Motorsport LIVE Challenge". Submit your best time to the qualification leaderboard and that's it!

Car: 2006 Audi #2 FSI Champion Racing R8 (R Class)

Track: Sebring International Raceway

Turn 10 hasn't stated whether or not the challenge is restricted to certain countries, so we're presuming it's open to all. Given that the developer will be offering winners a chance to see Forza Motorsport 3 (presumably) on June 13th, it's looking increasingly likely that we'll see the title demoed at next month's E3 - beginning June 2nd.
