To score points for rivals qualifying, top 1000 overall. It's safe to assume not everyone in the top 1000 has registered on gfinity though. Won't know until after points are posted.

To qualify for weekend races it'll depend on your region. Europe and North America are limited to top 400. Asia, Australia & Pacific islands, and Latin America (Mexico, Latin America, & south america) are at least 80. Rules are silent if a 1st round race similar to North America and Europe will occur.

If your in the Americas region in rivals, it'll be hard to tell at times who is in what region. You could probably estimate 10-20% of the people ahead of you are in the Latin America region.

Lap time wise, I'd you are in the 2:07s you'll be good to go. 2:08s are probably safe too.

That's not bad, I'm only able to push out a clean 2:04.7 right now. I had a 2:04.03 but it was dirty, I can't run the back half consistently and clean enough.

Garbage. Across the line it's anywhere from a low 2:05 to a 2:07 flat if I do a big drift. The first half the track I pace 2:04 flats to 2:05 flats more often then not. After that it's a lot of inconsistent play.

Lap times aren't much different when I run laps that don't violate the track boundaries rule. I'm sure a lot of people will be DQd for cutting the S turns at the end of the track because they didn't read the rule that 2 tires have to be on the race surface at all times.

Just as an FYI, just because it's clean in rivals, it's probably not in the race.

High possibility of not making to top 80 in races and a slight chance depending on seeding of making it top 24.

I'm chasing the track instead of attacking corners. Hopefully this will be the only mulligan week.

This is my first experience with the ForzaRC. The Sebring course no longer shows up (just the ladder challenge). Is that expected?

I only managed a 2.05:2 for this qualifier.

Really didn't enjoy this track/car combo. I found the braking and traction out of the corners very inconsistent. In the end I started using 3rd gear when I should of been using 2nd gear in many corners. I have no idea how those doing low 2.03 are finding the rear grip?

After looking at the average age of those at the Forza RC invitational I have decided that maybe the answer is im too old now I am nearly 50!!

If you have the time, take part. I remember racing in leagues with you and you're one hell of a racer. I remember people rooting for you as well in a FRC race too. The people like you therefore I think you shouldn't give up!

I know I'm not giving up but will be a no show for races many weekends. I got married so now my weekends are busy. Like next weekend I have a business function I have to attend with her dad.

I'm taking part for the fun of it. I know that life will prevent me from potentionally earning the most amount of points and that's ok by me. FM6 basically paid me to play with my winnings as a single guy. Not a lot to prove at this point personally speaking.

The event is over so what ever reward that was available cannot be earned. You'll have to wait until next Monday for the next event. It's only a 3 day window to put down a time.

I agree with the S turns at the end, it's amazing how much time you can lose/gain in that section depending on how you take it. I wish I could put in the amount of time the top guys can just so I can be more competitive. But at the end of the day as long as I can be top 100 and have fun playing the game I'm perfectly fine with that.

The 'races' tab of forzarc.gfinity.net has been updated with lists of all drivers participating for every region. I think it's in ascending order of skill, as the fastest drivers are on the last couple of pages.

Good find.

Brackets are slowly starting to be filled. As of this post 9 of the brackets for Europe are filled.

It will be on the gfinity website, they've already started posting information for the European races: https://forzarc.gfinity....ces-emea/bracket/round-1

There are 13 now, I don't think each lobby is in grid order because although the first driver in each lobby qualified top 20, there are some fast drivers near the bottom like F4H Super GT, EVR Matt212, TUS Veepz, TUS TacticaL etc.

Brackets for Latin America, oceanic and Asia are complete as well.

Some of the EMEA lobbies are brutal but others seem wide open after the obvious #1 guy.
