The one time that a deadline for this event has been mentioned was during the June 6th ForzaRC livestream, with a graphic that indicated 2nd week of July:
https://youtu.be/vsg3jNkwpNY?t=5403
That would be similar to previous Challenges, which ended June 7, April 9, March 7. (January and Foust events ended on the last day of the month). Following that pattern this one could end on Monday the 9th. In any case I would look for more information in today's Week in Review and #ForzaFriday livestream and Monday's #ForzaMonthly livestream.

Good point (the race is on Sunday) + thanks Max for the details.

This might be a stupid question but I haven't encountered this yet. I'm top 10% in the North American leaderboard but 12% globally. Does you final percentile come from the global or local leaderboard?

I would play it safe and assume it is talking about overall/global percentile.

Any idea where the 10% mark ended up being for this event? My final time was somewhere close to a 4:06.6, when I set that time I think I was sitting just outside of the 10% but I know generally as the events go on the times overall get worse.

There wasn't tons of participants in this event like there was the Indy oval. I guess people don't really like a bunch of turns. I had a good time with this one, probably participated more in it because of an entire class of cars to try out. I think I had a high 4:07, around 12% iirc.

I want you guys to better yourselves and having to do it from a standing start means you have to get your lines/throttle/braking all down well.


In the end I couldn’t improve on my PB in the Maserati but what I learned from the challenge helped me beat the Le Mans endurance race in career mode on ‘Unbeatable’ 😀

Go.


I don’t need the CR (got 220,000,000 thanks to all the painting I do) but I did want to come back to this as it’s a fun idea.

I can’t remember my exact time right now but I believe it was a 4:08 from a standing start. Replay should be on the Leaderboards if you fancy taking a look.

I only did 1 Lap this month, and it was this one :)

That race is difficult. The leading cars are all diesel LMP1 (Audi, Peugeot) and your Porsche seemingly gets way less range than them. You not only have to outpace them but also completely destroy them.

For some reason the 919's redline is really high but the power dies off very early.

The prizes were poor and the bounty was easier this time around.

But Brickyard track is also much more intense than Le Mans. Difference is much less and more precision is needed, especially in T10's setup where they let the car bump into redline on the back straight.

Still a killer lap man. Great run. You're officially an alien now, barred from future contests. 😛

MIDNYTE is a good target for me as his times tend to be close to mine. I recall at the Sebring event we were almost tied!

I'm surprised PJTierney has only 220 million from paints, lol. I have 64 million from racing and some fortunate car sales.

Though, truth be told, he did waste a lot of that money to provide us with valuable info on the timed crates!

May the forced induction be with you.

Probably sometime this week, I would assume with the July update.
Rules of troubleshooting:
1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
2) Is your Internet working?

I should do something with it all at some point, maybe host a photo contest or put some expensive cars up for auction at minimum buyouts. Haven't figured it out yet and don't have the time to organise anything for a while anyway.

Anyway, back on topic:

One thing I noticed with Le Mans (in general, prior to this challenge) is how tricky some of the track limits are in comparison to other circuits. It seems rather easy to dirty a lap at Tetre Rouge for example, as a mere brush of the "baguettes" would invalidate a lap even if you still had a wheel between the white lines.

LoL, cheers man! I’ll never be an alien, it takes me a hundred laps to achieve what they can do in just a couple - great fun trying though 😉
