I tried looking through the leaderboards, and now I understand why picking an event is tricky -- it seems like FN already has a time everywhere! Anyway, here are some possible choices where we don't have many times, or I thought maybe the times we have could be improved (apologies if I missed anyone here):

Broadway Village (S2, Road)
The Meadows Sprint (rivals challenge, Road)
Greendale Super Sprint (S1/S2, Road, no Monaco KC)
Ambleside Sprint (S1, Road, no Hot Wheels?)
Waterhead Sprint (A, Road)
Astmoor Heritage (S2, Road, no Monaco KC)
Cotswold Super Sprint (S1, Road, no Monaco KC)
Horizon Festival Circuit (A/C, Road)
Ambleside Village Circuit (C, Road)
Ashbrook Loop Scramble (S1, Dirt)
Mortimer Gardens Scramble (S1, Dirt)
Tarn Hows Scramble (first rivals challenge, Dirt)
Lakehurst Forest (A/B, Dirt)
Edinburgh Stockbridge (rivals challenge or A, Street)
The Monument Wynds (S2, Street)
Wind Farm Rush (S2/A, Street)
Batham Gate (S2, Street)
Ashbrook Apex (A, Street)
Westwick Castle Scramble (Fortune Island, Dirt)
Cliffside Scramble (S1, Fortune Island, Dirt)
Plastic Flowers Circuit (Legoland, Road)
Brick Tree Sprint (A, Legoland, Road)
Lego McLaren Senna Speed Champions Race (S1, Legoland, Road)
Legoland Goliath (S2, Legoland, Road, not as long as you might think but still kinda long)

Good job BedlamBorealis 👍 A S1 or S2 would be nice after the last C and B class challenges.

Managed a few more laps at Ambleside and joined Ziperr in the 40s but .016 behind. Might have one more run later as it’s the tricky corner cutting through the trees which is costing me.

For this week, with thanks to Bedlam for the list of suggestions, let’s go for Ambleside Sprint S1, no 2JetZ.

What?
EDIT: NVM, now I know what it is ;)
Since we talk about HW DLC cars I will ask about Dually. Is it any good in A class? Was racing yesterday against good player and I wasn't able to catch him in FWD Prelude. TBH I was bit unlucky with starting grid - he was always in front and I was in back. It was not easy to get trough field (Novas and APs included).

Hey guys! Hope you are all well? Taking a wee break from Forza, been playing only Forza H4 for over a year and a half (thanks lockdown), so just getting a bit tired with it, especially all the disconnect issues lately. Off to Doom to blast some demons but will keep an eye on the thread.

Cheers, take care and see you soon :)

The '32 Ford Double Down is surprisingly strong here, I usually give it a whirl before swapping to the NSX since I find it to be the better drags car, but there's a couple high on the leaderboard that I was able to chase with reasonable success. I'm at 1:30.357 for now, I think Yankz's time at 12th (1:29.5) is attainable with enough runs.

Is the 2JetZ a drag style tune too? I don't have that car pack and I can't recall seeing it used, to be honest I didn't realize any of those vehicles had a place in the meta.

Yeah, the 2JetZ is a drag tyre option in S1. It’s got phenomenal acceleration so a course like this with short straights and a lot of hairpins is very good for it.

All of the HW cars have poor top end, so it’s only really the drag tyres 2JetZ in S1 (and the Harvester in B) which are meta on some courses.

Managed to shave off .801 in one shot and exactly tie Yankz at 1:29.556. New goal is to break into the 1:28s, it will be challenging but maybe doable given that I still had some mistakes in my run.

It’s an interesting leaderboard. I think last time I looked at it (maybe 6 months ago), Codcaos was top in the TZ2. Since then, the 2Jetz and 155 have taken over and the Tnbe guys have done insane times in the GT05.

Great time in the Custom Aleriooon 👍.

This is a very difficult course for me, both in terms of driving and tuning... would have stopped already but my pride demands I get ahead of that Transit FE 😄. If anyone has car/tune suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them, though I think drags tunes here are probably beyond my skill level.

edit - adjusted some wheel settings and it got a bit easier, still can't manage any drags tunes. Went back to Ambleside Scramble since I noticed a 💪 late entry from PABO knocked me into 4th... have retaken the top spot there by a slim margin.

It's proving hard to get into the 1:28s, it's a very optimal run to do it. I shaved around 0.27 off and managed to tie my best time once but I'm not sure if I'll manage any more than that. Very fun track though, with a much different meta than most S1 road tracks.

1:28s? Blimey!! I think I am mired down in the 1:34s or something. Kudos for going that quick.

Have tried a few runs of this event on and off through the week with various cars...fastest time was with the 8C FE (or whatever it is) but am dismally slow. I have never been able to get on with this track...just doesn't agree with me for some reason

Bedlam’s time was a WR but I see Mango, from the 1% club, has narrowly beaten it since.

Gave this another go in the early hours of this morning...tried the Caterham and, whilst I still cannot get comfortable on this track, I did manage to improve a decent chunk to get about 3 tenths or so behind FN. Don't think I'll be likely to improve further but at least I have now set a time that makes me look at least vaguely competent lol

Gave it another go in the end (yeah, big surprise lol)...managed to knock just under 2 tenths off or so. Can't remember the time as I didn't write it down but think I am .180 or so off FN now
