Don't know if its explained elsewhere but, what race tracks and cars are used for the ghost races/Sunday heats and showdown? Is it all the same as the qualifiers?

I don't expect to survive the first race anyway, but this demotivates really :-/
I only know the names Rossi and Vidda, they are much quicker than me.
Just don't want to be last.


Strange, I moved to lobby 10 now.

There is a "Handbook" on the Gfinity-Site.
Scroll that down and you have all your answers.

I'm in lobby 8 and I spent a good hour looking for more info but couldn't find anything about how these lobbies are started. will I get an invite on Saturday to join the lobby or do I have to manual search it out somehow?

also I read the handbook through three times and didn't see any mention of what car/track combos will be for these races. is it posted somewhere else?

You'll get an invite I think. Make sure you're reading the handbook tab on the gfinity website: https://forzarc.gfinity.net/handbook (the PDF contains less info)

Does anyone know if the ghost & sunday races are simulation damage or cosmetic?

I had invites turned on for friends only, I changed this just after 1pm but it seems it was too late. I joined off the host's gamertag but they kicked me from the lobby. Gutted I couldn't race as I had the pace to progress, I was running 10m32s in practice which would've been enough for 3rd place in Super GT's lobby that he livestreamed.

Edit: I've made a mistake, I'm in lobby 15 which means my lobby doesn't start yet! I can still race!

Did the same mistake.
Every host has multiple lobbys and they start every half hour.

So it has been 3 hours now and still no invite received. Bracket page on gfinity shows error for EMEA so I can't even see which races have finished. Any idea how many races are still left?

Edit: Bracket page works now and my lobby has already run the race. Never got an invite even though I was online the whole time.

I’m pretty sure I made the top 400 and can’t find my GT anywhere. I definitely linked my account to Gfinity as well. Any help?

Check your xbox settings, your invites might be set to friends only so they couldn't send the invite.

Anyone having issues like this, make sure you're reading the Handbook, Times, and Races (Brackets) sections at https://forzarc.gfinity.net and use the Support link there to inquire. Make sure your settings allow invites and watch your linked email. If you set your Rivals time on PC, it didn't count.

Also accept friend request of host. The one for my upcoming race sent me a friend request.

Is it just me or does the Corvette handle completely differently online than in rivals or free play? When racing online the transmission is super jerky and the car tries to spin out every time I downshift under braking.

I just did first my first heat and couldn't even get better than a 2:09 when i was averaging about a 2:06 flat in Rivals. Yuck.

Didn't notice this but maybe it was because the lobby was set to simulation damage. Aggressive downshifting will lead to catastrophic engine damage.

I usually get different results in online races, too. Couldn't get even down to my qualifying time. Oh BTW, I had already run more than a second faster than that time. I run in 'Hardcore' settings for all sessions, too.

Is it typical for less than half the qualifiers to show up? Had 7 in my lobby, I finished 5th, but in counting race times, I'm around 63rd with 2 races not reported yet.

I spin out after turn 2. Agree the online C7 was different then rivals. The handbook says there a third round in the NA ghost . Shows Sebring again, Bathurst and Silverstone. When are those races?

Drove the same to me. The difference is simulation tires. Car doesn't drive the same on the first lap but after it's ok. I actually thought the car gripped better but that may just be from getting used to it.

They already happened. You had to place top 4 in the top 400 races to qualify.

So I ended up in a 3 way for for 6th in my top 80 battle after 3 races. Pretty fortunate too since I forget to put manual clutch on the holden at Bathurst.

Not sure if I made top 24 or what a tie breaker rule would be, but man it's a neat story. I wasn't very fast but consistency helped prevent terrible finishes. Fun day.
