Will one of the mods please address this? I've made three routes but can't set up a P. I. restriction. I don't want to submit them yet for fear that they'd be an automatic disqualification.

Edit : I see one person managed to get an An S2 restriction on their route flyer. I would love to know how he/she did that.

When the game asks you to create an event once you've created your track, just exit. Then create a custom event and you should be able to choose the PI

Ok, what you say is correct, I made a route, saved it and exited. I then went through 'Blueprint' selected my vehicle type and was immediately asked to choose a Class .. just like you said. Thank you. … BUT this only works at a place where you haven't already filled your 5-blueprint/custom event 'slots' .. having created 5 custom events for every 'road race' start point, I can overwrite them but don't get the option to select a specific class. If I could delete a 'custom event' rather than overwriting, the problem could be worked around . I will pass this on to Craig Littler

I'm sorry to say that the above method you specified, didn't work the second time I tried it :( .. so, it did work, then it failed … I'm baffled now... I will also pass this on to CL.

I also tried that method to no avail. But I have seen the class choosing screen before. I'm starting to think that the game randomly decides when to let us choose.
Still, a mod needs to chime in on this since we are clearly having trouble adhering to one of the rules.

I have submitted a support ticket.

I occasionally have issues with this too. I don't *think* it has anything to do with the number of blueprints though. Make sure you're actively logged into Horizon Life - I find that a lot of times that I can't select a class, it's because I inadvertently got logged out somehow.

I can confirm it has to do with being logged in to Horizon Life.
After creating a race, I waited for it to find a session and then create a blueprint. Sure enough, I was able to pick a class. I went back to a route I previously created and, after finding an online session, was able to set up a class restriction.
Weird part is, if you're not logged in to Horizon life, blueprints that you did set a class for will no longer have it.

Hey, I was just wondering if anyone might know this but... Is there a way to delete a blueprint? I noticed On my shared blueprints it's mainly the stuff I made when I first started playing the game. I just noticed when I went to search for the Italian Job event I made it's on my shared Creative hub BUT it's a Summer version I made (I made a Spring version afterwards to keep it within the rules for this contest)

any help would be helpful. Thanks

Ok, now this makes sense; I made almost all my blueprints/custom routes in 'solo' …. even so, you'd like to think it wouldn't matter. I have raised the point of not being able to 'delete' with Playground Games head level designer... he is looking into the whole issue. We'll all get there together sometime :) teamwork

Want to point out a ponder, not sure if it is an ERROR in the original posting.

This contest was announced during livestream, but they also specified specific class restrictions for car type.

So copied from OP, and adding the classes from stream:

- Summer S2 Class asphalt (Max PI 998) HYPERCAR
- Autumn B Class Mixed Surface (Max PI 700) MODERN RALLY
- Winter S1 Cross Country (Max PI 900) EXTREME OFFROAD
- Spring A Class Mixed Surface (Max PI 800) NEVER HEARD MENTIONED IN STREAM AND COULDN'T FIND IN VOD!

yes, I made notes from the live stream, but assumed those sets of criteria were overwritten by the 'team' and the renewed contest specifics were now as detailed in the origin of this thread; posted by lass that co-presented the broadcast … perhaps she can confirm and remove any doubts.
