I can't participate in this race as when I select it, I'm given a "No cars are available that meet the lobby restrictions" message.

Restrictions listed are:
CAR DIVISION must be IndyCar
HOMOLOGATED ONLY
OWNERSHIP must be RENTAL
NO FRICTION ASSIST

Any ideas what the problem is?

Have you updated fm7 today with the new carpack. The carpack messaage should popup and just add them to your garage.

Oh Dear Lord not again. I put way too many laps in last year and I barely made top 20% or so iirc.

So y'all know what you're getting into, here were the times set by the IndyCar drivers during last year's event.
It'll be interesting to see how the new IndyCar compares to the 2017 car.

J. Newgarden: 00:38.287
J. Hinchcliffe: 00:38.312
R. Wickens: 00:38.332
C. Daly: 00:38.493

Running the Windows store thing and getting it to update worked, thanks! Thought it was weird since there are already IndyCars in my game, didn't realize they restricted it to the same IndyCar.

Remember, everyone who runs this event (doesn't matter where you finish) will receive the participation award.

Also, since May testing and qualifying seasons for the Indianapolis 500 scheduled on Sunday, May 26, 2019, may keep any of the "bounty" drivers too busy to record a time for the FM7 event, Turn 10 will award everyone the individual bounty driver prize should they be unable to record a time in Forza Motorsport.

Take into account that IndyCar 2017 is faster than Indy 2019 with the stock aero kit that we'll be racing with.

At least this time we don't have to lift the throttle to prevent the engine from overreving.

Is anyone else finding it harder to get the same time gap to world #1 compared to last time?

For the May 2018 event, world #1 was 38.119, and I did 38.275. Just had a go at this one, and world #1 is 39.3 and I did 39.8, so miles further off than last time. Controller both times, I'll have to try the wheel some time, but it's a lot of unplugging and moving of stuff to do that. I might just be very out of practice at providing the tiny stick movements needed. My recollection is that last time it wasn't all that hard to do around 38.3 but I spent a lot of time shaving those last thousandths off to beat Josef's time.

First off, the controller isn't going to give you a good time since you need to turn just enough to lose only a little speed and nothing more. You can't even properly aim for the apexes with a controller. There is no speed to save you on the straight, before you could just lose a little speed and it would not matter. Now any lost speed is counted against you completely.

Indycar 2019 with the default aero kit is 1 second slower than the 2017 car. Go to free play with the Indycar 2019, go to upgrades and change both front and rear aero parts, then do laps and you will get faster times without having to break homologation rules . It's just that you are forced to drive the slowest tune of the car in this bounty hunter.

I posted this before I was able to test the car. Ran around 25-30 laps last night and worked my way down to a 39.9xxx and if I remember correctly, the #1 time was in the low 39's.
The rear of the 2019 car is definitely a bit freer than the 2017 if you're too harsh with the steering input.

I wish they had setup the Rivals event with the oval aero package since it is available on the car, but it's a pretty awesome update for free and a year and a half since the release of the game. Thanks Turn 10!

You were right. 10 mins of playing with the wheel and I went from top 12% to top 1.2%.

I'm not sure why the May 2018 event in the older Indycars was so much easier with the controller, but with these cars, you can feel via the wheel FFB that it's really easy to cause the game to give you feedback that you've just turned the wheel too much. With a controller you don't get that feedback. Even with a wheel it's hard to turn the wheel gently enough to take the perfect line while not triggering whatever that feedback effect is.

Is anyone sub 39.5 with a controller?

Changed the wheel to 900 degrees. I normally prefer a much faster steering ratio, but for this one, you're turning the wheel so little that you want as much movement as possible. I also got rid of the ghost, as it was just too distracting when so close ahead. Down to 39.464, world #44, top 0.24%. I feel there's more to come yet, will try some more another time. Kudos to Dartman Dan at #28.

Cool cars, cool event but the prizes are boring and looks to me like they were chosen 5 sec before they announced them.

Only cars I can buy anyway in the game and I am sitting at over 10 million CR while having all cars.

Where is the motivation here?

Managed to get 39.472 with a controller. So just...
I'm guessing my perfect run would be approx 39.45
