ForzaRC John Hindhaugh Le Mans Challenge

Quote:
You’ve listened to him as the broadcast voice of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. You’ve watched as he’s called ForzaRC Wednesday Showdown races with his trademark blend of electric excitement and pinpoint accuracy. Now, here’s your chance to take on “The Voice of Le Mans” John Hindhaugh in our next Bounty Hunter event, which begins on Wednesday, June 6.

The track? Le Mans (naturally). The car? Well here’s where things get interesting. We’re not assigning a car to this event – instead we’re assigning an entire division, specifically the Forza GT Division. The Gamertag to follow? makem73.

Naturally we’ll have some great rewards to give away in this Bounty Hunter event, including stuff never before seen. Check it out:

Beat John Hindhaugh’s final time: Referee Driver Gear
Top 10th percentile on leaderboard: 50,000 credits
Top 25th percentile: 2012 MINI John Cooper Works Forza Edition
Top 75th percentile: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport 454 Forza Edition
Participation reward: 2008 BMW Z4 M Coupe

How will you stack up against the man who knows Le Mans like no one else on the planet? Find out when the John Hindhaugh Le Mans Challenge begins on June 6!

Look for John on the leaderboards by his Gamertag (makem73) and do your best to take down his time on the track, which currently stands at a respectable 4:24.094. ... This event ends on July 1, so this weekend is your last time to get your times in and claim your rewards. Good luck!

Is the Z4 finally showing up or is this the model we already have access to?
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.

This will be the first opportunity to own the BMW Z4.
The Chevelle FE was previously the reward for the first ForzaRC Qualifier Rivals in early April, and the MINI was the March Season Leagues reward.

Anything on Le Mans is win for me -- the only Rivals event where I've beaten the rival outright was at Le Mans with the GT40.

I think many gamers will like that award strategy (e.g. suits and credits for the top 10%). Now someone only has to be in top 25% instead of the top 10% to land one of the exclusive cars.

This sounds like a really fun event, with the real 24hr just around the corner. Car choice is going to spice things up. Le Mans is definitely not one of my stronger tracks. I really like the track a lot, just need more time there. That being said, Le mans and Hindy, I'm gunning for ya. Cheers, and good luck to all chasing their Bounty prizes!

Is it really only 50k CR? Maybe missing a zero or two?

Normally I might share that perspective, but as it is I'd almost prefer the 50k credits to the garbage BMW. ;P

Some other previous Rivals restrictions have required "[Division], Ownership must be Rental, must be Homologated" which could be the case for this event.

Yep I like a lot however lets bump the creds up to 250,000 as you can pick a nice car for that much or do some extra tunes, I get more from me Forza Credits every week. And yep I can make the top 25% so I all in on this idear. Oh I dont need credits I have 30,000,000 and collection tier 44. Got to love the AH for making a proffit.

Indeed. And Rental + Homologation changes things around quite a bit. It boosts cars like the Corvette and nerfs cars like the 458.

And it limits the M6, which can be homologated into Forza GT with both GTLM and GT3 builds (that's right, you can either open up restrictors or add wider tires, nice touch from Turn 10).

One thing is certain, though: even with such restrictions, the Z4 won't stand a chance. No top end in that.
May the forced induction be with you.

The Maserati is capable of hitting ~219 mph (low downforce) in a straight line. The next fastest is the R8 which, even if you fiddle with the engine upgrades, doesn't come close enough to be competitive with the Maserati. All others run between ~179 (DBR9) and ~207 mph (991 RSR), so unless some balancing is done I think it's clear which car most people will choose. I don't think rentals would help either since they would still be homologated. Stock would change things up, but I'm unsure how much.

I'll put up 5.5 million each to the first 4 people that beat his time on their OUTLAP.
Time must beat his final time, replay must show standing start.

No Aliens, I know who you are :P

Go.

How do you give them the credits? I cant put up a cheap car with a million buyout. Not that I'm going to be able to claim the prize anyway.

Im positive there was a way with a reasonably cheap car. Maybe someone else can chime in. My memory may now be deceiving me.

EDIT: first 4. 5.5 million each. No Aliens as stated.
