After winning the Torana from Josef's CBH, I painted it up like his Hitachi IndyCar, printed it out and had Josef, Will and Simon sign it at the Long Beach GP. I had to explain to Simon and Will what they were signing, but Simon did turn to Josef and ask, "How come I didn't know about this?" Will thought it was cool that the reward car was a Torana.

So if Josef's friends are the rest of Team Penske, this might be partly my fault. Sorry. :-)

If Josef's friends aren't from Team Penske but are all active IndyCar drivers, who would you want to face in a CBH? Hinch, Bourdais and Rahal would be my picks.













I think this may be the first time I say “cool story bro” and actually mean it. Cool story bro.

This is the coolest thing about American motorsport, this interaction. If it was F1 you'd probably not have even been allowed into the paddock.
May the forced induction be with you.

It's a reward for one of the other Rivals events. I doubt they would offer the same prize twice in the same month.

While watching today's NA region ForzaRC broadcast, Mechberg mentioned the upcoming Newgarden rival events. We'll get all the details on Friday, but he said there would be two Rival events and name dropped Conor Daly and James Hinchcliffe as two of the drivers joking Newgarden in the event.

This is going to be very cool.

It showed up as a level up reward for me yesterday.

I don't need two of them but it's cool that there are, indeed, two. Seems Turn 10 is aware they need to advertise their Rivals events a little better, so they also made it available to people who don't visit Rivals. It's also an apology for last month's bug.
May the forced induction be with you.

As far as the prizes who knows, but I’d assume with 4 bounties on 2 tracks if you beat them all that’s 8 prizes with 1 participation prize for each track bringing it to 10. Then prizes for being in the top 10, 25 and 50th percentile on each brings it to 16 total.

    Note: Unless Mechberg states otherwise, what the game considers clean is a clean lap.



I have never seen this stated before in any of the Rival Events, however I may have missed it if it was. I guess you're saying some lap times may be reviewed thru some sort of adjudication process if Mechberg states that Turn 10 deems it necessary. Don't get me wrong I am 100% for track limits being strictly enforced, and always do my best to adhere to them, even error on the side of caution. That being said, bringing a human element into a hot lapping contest, for judging track limits doesn't seem like a good idea.

That's just my 2 cents on this, and like I said I am all for strictly enforced track limits, but if this happens nothing else comes to mind except a HUGE CAN OF WORMS. Any exploits for track limits should already be fixed anyways.

The oval is definitely going to favour those with pedals, the car hits the limiter on each straight a 237mph/381-2 km/h and you immediately lose 6mph/10km/h. Its pretty trick on the pad to roll out just the right amount to keep it a 236, but I did gain a tenth and a half. A low 38 is good for the top 5% as of 11/05.

If anyone is struggling to be smooth in the corners, try pushing the stick forward and then rolling to side and then roll back to the top on the exit.

Day #1-
Oval is horrible with a controller, but I managed a 38.4 (#104). Goal is a 38.3.
GP circuit is alright, but has so much to cut, but managed a 1:09.8(#16). Goal is 1:09.4

Can't wait to see what the prizes are.

You want to try to keep the car at 237mph. Front straight doesn't like 238, but the back straight you can hit 238 for a very short time. I was pulsing the gas as soon as I hit 237/238, I would drop 1-2mph, instead of the 5-7mph when hitting the rev limiter.

Going from a 38.7 to a 38.4 took me at least 40 laps doing this. It is quite difficult to keep an eye on the speed and trying to hit the corners smoothly. Really wish the car had some more straight line speed without interference with the rev limiter.

Never had any luck with that technique... in the previous games anyway. Not sure I've given it a shot in 7, but I don't expect different results.

I'm guessing some repeats from previous events and some driver gear
