Multi-Class 200 Mile Rally

Welcome to the Multi-Class 200 Mile Rally!

5 Tracks, 5 Tuned Cars, Prizes available…Do you fancy entering a 200 mile Rally?

A brief description:

• There are five legs (races) to run, on five pre-determined tracks (each approx. distance ranging between 37 - 42 miles)
• There are five pools of cars to choose from (each pool will compete in a specific class)
• Choose one car from each pool, upgrade/tune it to the limit of the designated class, and choose which of the five tracks to race it on.
• One car from each pool/class must be used - one for each of the five tracks
• You should race in a private lobby with 10 AI cars set on professional difficulty (one of each class R1 to F). Your finishing time is what counts - position is irrelevant!

Choose one car from each pool. Obviously, in stock form the bulk of these cars do not fit in the pool classes assigned. However, that’s irrelevant here. You may apply any upgrades and tunes to bring each car up to the max level permitted for whichever pool class it has been allocated. If I’ve made a mistake and any of those can’t reach optimisation in the designated class, shout out and I’ll draft in a replacement :slight_smile:

You can choose any combination, but each track and class must be run once.

Each race will be set up and done online in the Custom Race Creator section of the game (private lobby). Select 10 AI cars for each race - one for every class (F, E, D, C, B, A, S, R3, R2 & R1). Remember, your final position in each race is not important - your time is what counts!

Legs can be run in any order. The total time of all five legs combined is the final time.

Once you have completed each race, be sure to save the replays and upload them to your storefront before the end of the competition for your time to be accepted as valid.

Race settings in the ‘Game Set-Up’ tab of a private lobby are as follows:
Number of AI cars: 10
AI Difficulty: Professional
Car Class: Any - (then back on main lobby page you can individually select the AI cars - one for each class F-R1)
Damage: Cosmetic
Collisions: Default.
Advanced Rules: (Click RB on Controller)
Grid Ordering: PI
Ascending: No
Number of Player Buckets: 2
Group by Bucket: No
Timer: If you would rather not fiddle about with player buckets and assigning cars to groups, then instead be sure to give yourself plenty of time to finish each race - as the R1 car will likely trigger the countdown first!
Group 1 Options: (Click RB a couple more times); Can Start Final Countdown: Yes
Group 2 Options: (Click RB again); Can Start Final Countdown: No
Back on the lobby page click on each car to organise the groups. Group 1 could just be yourself (and possibly AI cars that pose no threat of finishing ahead you in the race). AI cars that are likely to finish ahead of you should be in Group 2 (so they don’t trigger the end of race timer countdown).

After finishing a race, save the replay and write down your finishing time! Remember, ultimately your final position in each race is not important - your time is what counts.

If you wish to enter this competition, please reply with the car/class and track combinations you initially plan to race with. You can change your mind (even after your provisional times have been set) - as long as you haven’t posted your final times.

Once you have completed each leg please post your time and also save your replay - upload it to your storefront before the competition ends for checking. Dirty laps are fine, but please no deliberate corner cutting or wall riding etc! Such unsporting driving may result in disqualification.

I will update the second post with all results. To keep people’s interest and inspire competition/improvement - yet to keep things orderly, the rule will be that you may post an initial provisional time for each leg, followed later, if you wish by one updated (final) time – again for each leg. I would advise only posting provisional times when you are somewhat happy with them – remember, once you have provided updated times, those will be final (even if you later slip down the timesheet list!).

Thanks bluhar3dfr33k, great to have you on-board the challenge. I’ve updated post no.2 with your entry.

I’m hoping to be able to run a couple of my legs later today to get the ball rolling. I’ll post my times and SF replays when I’m done.

Anyone else interested? The more the merrier! For now, all people need to do is reply with an expression of intent to race and I will update post no.2 with your entry. You can add details of your planned car/track combinations, and of course times later.

I’ve just finished my first runs on two of the legs (Fujimi Kaido and Camino Extreme) and noted my provisional times in post no.2 of the thread.

I guess my most difficult leg in the rally will be my choice of R2 class on Fujimi. My time was 32:45.801 over the four laps. Fortunately, I did a test run beforehand which helped me get into a rhythm, although I was fortunate not to spin - there were also plenty of scrapes with the wall! I was on a hot lap on my third lap, only to screw it up towards the end, and then I fell to pieces on the last lap – guess I was feeling the pressure not to spin and ruin everything. I hardly saw another car during the run - my R1 competitor sped off into the distance, and before too long I had left my lower-level R2 competition behind also (perhaps I should have chosen a faster R2 AI car). I caught up to the F and E class cars towards the end of the race. For those interested in watching a little of my run, or to check that I actually did the time, the replay of the race is on my storefront.

After a few attempts I also finished my B Class Camino Extreme leg in the BMW M5. My first couple of runs weren’t too good. I guess I fell into the habit of trying to hot-lap, meaning I took too many risks, and paid for it with errors, even rolling it onto its roof on the penultimate lap of my second run. Anyway, I realised that hot-lapping perhaps wasn’t the cleverest idea during a semi-endurance event like this (at least for me!) and forced myself to just focus on trying to make clean-ish, tidy laps consistently. I fared much better the third time - aside from a nasty moment coming into the Ladera section on lap 7 when I saw the R2 McLaren steaming up behind to lap me. It threw my focus for a second as I entered the quick right-left kink on the long straight and I lost around 5 seconds on the speed bumps. My time over the nine laps was 28:05.645. A video is in my storefront.

I’ll try to get another one or two legs done over the coming few days.

Count me in. Getting the right car on the right track is going to make a hugh difference to times, the AI racing adds another dimension too. Well thought out Rudy. May even get time to lay some laps down tonight.

Sorted the car for the ring, which le mans track is it?

Thanks for entering JWCJRS4RT! I’ve updated post no.2.

The Le Mans track layout to be used is La Sarthe (with the two chicanes on the mulsanne straight).

Good luck!

Im def up for this one :slight_smile:

Rally leg 1 Nurburgring R2 Pool Mercedes Benz C Class - 21 : 25:677 - Final time

Rally leg 2 Infineon Long S Pool Lamborghini Countach - 25:15:638 - Final time

Both replays are up on my SF now

Cant decide where to run the slowest car !!!

Hi Voldemortt, thanks for entering the comp! I’ve updated post no.2 with your results. I realise you stated final as opposed to provisional next to your time - but I left a ‘P’ next to them anyway, so as you always have the option ´to update them. Alternately, you can leave them just as they are.

I’ve completed a couple more of my runs myself (replays on SF):
Nurburgring - S Class - Ferrari GTO 1984 - Time: 24:35.354
Infineon - D Class - Saab 99 T - Time: 29:31.504

I realise that there are other competitions running, and that this one might be quite time consuming. Therefore I’ve also extended the provisional comp end date to Sunday 5th July to give people plenty of time.

I’ve just finished my fifth and final leg - Le Mans in the Aston DB4. Time of 22:56.048.
Over the five legs my total provisional time is 2:17:54.352. I’ve updated post no.2. Replays of all legs are on my SF. Here’s a few photos of my cars in action on each track:

Leg 1: Nurburgring - Ferrari GTO 1984 - S class

Leg 2: Fujimi Kaido - Honda #18 Takata DOME NSX - R2 class

Leg 3: Le Mans La Sarthe - Aston DB4 GT Zagato - A class

Leg 4: Camino Extreme - BMW M5 '88 - B class

Leg 5: Infineon Long - Saab 99 T - D class

Ipersonally think you should keep the AI in the races Rudyard - they keep you on your toes :slight_smile:

Fair enough Voldemortt, thanks. We’ll stick with the AI field. I’ve edited the posts above as necessary. I won’t tinker any more!

Thanx for making my times provisional Rudyard - i know i can improve on my times - will see how it all adds up later b4 i decide to run them again .

Just set a Provisional A Pool time - Camino Extreme Hyundai Veloster Turbo 26:55:662

Iwill upload replay next time im playing Forza

That was the most frustrating many many laps of the ring I have ever done. That was mental!

Mercedes R2 C-Class 21:18.025 .Replay on storefront

Great comp

I haven’t given up on this Rudy, everytime I got a race set up and got a couple of laps done I’d be disconnected from xbox live and loose the race. Hopefully resolved issue and I will post times later

No worries mate. There’s plenty of time left.

I checked out a bit of your Nurburgring run - looked a seriously impressive time (Voldemort’s too)! I Wonder if I made a mistake taking the S class car there… not that I think I would have come close to a sub 21:30 time anyway! I guess my choice of the R2 on Fujimi Kaido could come back to bite me!

I’m just hoping that we get a few more entrants soon. Comps been open for 10 days, and only three folks interested… Not sure if I made it over complex - my rambling explanations putting people off, or if there’s just too much on-track time involved (well over two hours as least) for busy people. Maybe the unusual comp design just isn’t appealing to most people, or perhaps they just simply prefer to hot-lap. Anyway, if others don’t enter then there’s plenty of assured prize money coming to the three of you (assuming you complete all legs) who have entered!

Good luck! Looking forward to seeing the rest of your times :slight_smile:

It is a shame there arent many taking this challenge as it makes a refreshing change from hot lapping.

This looks fun Rudyard. Do car tunes need to be your own? If so does one have a chance to be competitive by simply throwing some upgrades to the car? Very interested regardless of the answers =)

tunes are open to whatever you like as long as the class of cars are kept within the rules. you can buy tunes off the storefront if u wish to as long as they fall within the guidelines set
