Agree with Blue028 once u get used to the wheel it is no turning back.

Did a little car prep. Tuned up. Wheel, Clutch and H Shifter, Sim Steer and Fuel & Tires Assist Off 02:16.885. I guess it will depend on how many cars I hit which usually isn't a problem just the drafting setting off the dirty lap if that triggers in the Rivals event.
Usually hanging out at position 12 so you will need to look in your rearview mirror to see me.

As someone who hasn't had the game long enough to know; for those of us who don't own the car how do we take part?

The Fiesta ST should be a buyable car.
Rules of troubleshooting:
1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
2) Is your Internet working?
3) https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status < Check here for service issues.
4) If all else fails open a service ticket and/or forum post.

It's not. It's an award car.

I checked the list elsewhere in the forum to be sure it wasn't me just being blind.

Corrected. You get the Escort for participating and there will be a Twitter poll to decide the car those who beat me will receive.

Thanks Connor!



No problem, cheers!

So if you don’t have the car you have to drive stock?

The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST is an exclusive car that is unlocked by completing the Ford Fiesta Hoonigan Autocross showcase event that is found in the Domination Championship of the Forza Driver's Cup once the Evolution Championship is earned.

I wish you had posted that 5 mins earlier. Just bought one from the Auction house. I'm about 3/4 the way through Evolution Championship.

Ah well never mind. It was only 33k and I just earnt 280k+ on a 20 lap race so pocket change. ;)

Got down to 2:16.3 with an automatically homologated car, no tuning apart from that. I turned TCS and STM off, I think this car might be faster that way.

Do we know when the rivals event goes live?

Please not the edit to the event. This will be STOCK ONLY.

If you don't own the Fiesta ST yet, you will be able to use it as a rental for the event.

Oh! just when I thought I'd be able to play around with a bit of tuning. This rental business has it's drawbacks.

Still, if John gets his beard inexorably tangled round his Thrustmaster I may have an outside chance. I'm generally poor in stock cars.

Love this event! I had a 2013 ST IRL running stage 3 map and mods - it’s was a blast to drive.
Just ran 4 laps and managed a 2:13.xxx at C500 but just seen it’s now a stock event, which is good. I’ll wait for the event to start and put in a some more laps.

After a couple of laps, I'm currently at 2:31.088.

Update: Was able to knock that time down to 2:29.409 after running the event some more.

The car for the rivals event seems to be a lot slower than what we've been trying out in free play, the best I've managed so far is 2:26, world #1 is 2:21 right now.

Having fun. Managed to get a 2.30.7xx (stock) on my second or third attempt, then progressively got worse.

It's been a long time since I raced on Mugello, but I used to be pretty good at the track, so I'm hoping with a bit of practice I will be able to get back into it.

I originally practiced with the car tuned to the top of C class(C500) but it’s been clarified that the event will be using a stock car which is D class(D354). So my previous best of 2:13 will now be substantially quicker(10-15secs at a guess) than what I will manage in the stock car.

15 minuets in and I’ve managed 2.26.673 which I’m pretty happy with. Recon I’ll get a 2.25 but that’ll be it.

You can tell the keenest people get their times in first. My 2:24.7 was top 16% when I set it, it's already up to top 12% without me putting in a better performance :)

Fun event, it will be interesting to take the great Johniwanna down.
2.29.xxx in my first clean lap (my third overall, I believe).

Every track / car combination for the Bounty Hunters have been fantastic, IMHO.
