Congrats to all those involved in making this happen.

I may have my own personal grievances with a few features/philosophies of the series as of late but the thousands of hours and years of enjoyment will stay with me for a long time.

Some of my favourite memories with this series:

Getting my first Official Livery Contest win with this design in Forza Motorsport 4:

Scoring my first win in a competitive online race (after 99 attempts):

Developing a dominant racing team within the league I competed in:

Racing in Custom Public Lobbies well past midnight every night for over 3 years in Forza Motorsport 4 and making many new friends along the way:

Getting 30,000 downloads with this design in Forza Motorsport 6:

Beating 3 professional racing drivers in a Forza Motorsport 6 tournament:

Hitting Legend Painter status in Forza Horizon 3:

Forza Motorsport 4 was my personal high point in the series. The combination of Custom Public Lobbies, a robust online racing environment, the ability to gift content to players and a sensibly designed Storefront and Auction House made it the perfect “community racing title”. I hope that one day the franchise can hit that peak again…
