Yes, we did Fortune Island a few weeks ago without anyone shouting up to say it was a problem. We can do A and C - the only problem with A is it’s generally a bit predictable what’s going to be best.

Ah ok, understood about the A class. Every day is a school day :)

So how about Fortune Forest Circuit S1 and Will-O-Wisp trail B or C? Both on Fortune Island. Just suggestions, you guys will know better than me if these are worthwhile.

I feel both A and B class will need restrictions as the strong contender are well known. I support FI circuits both tarmac and dirt. I have been having lots of fun with B class retro sports and hot hatches car with no drivetrain swaps. All very sensible vehicles and grip builds are very competitive

I have both expansions, good with wherever we go next. I do prefer having only 1 track to focus on instead of multiple races, but that's just me.

Pretty sure I can get down to mid 1.58s in the Apollo. Just keep messing up the last section. Will give it a final go tomorrow. 1.59.0 for now.

Also improved my TZ2 time to 1.47.0 at Lakehurst so will probably have a final run at that tomorrow as well to try and edge into the 1.46s.

I like the look of Fortune Forest Circuit M0rt 👍. Let’s try that in S1. I guess I’d better ban the Elise GT1 though.

Snuck into the 1:58s on Edinburgh City yesterday and now I'm on Fortune Island. The leaderboard is quite thin but it looks like the KTM X-Bow GT4 and the Alfa 8C FE are the two options, I'm at 1:02.629 for now with the KTM and haven't tried the Alfa yet.

I’ll do leaderboards for the three events tomorrow evening, so you have until then. Probably only fair as I beat Aleriooon’s Edinburgh time by 0.017 at 23.59 😂. I’ve run a couple of slightly dirty 1.58.5s so I’m going to have one more stint tomorrow when I’m not so tired as now.

Ok, I’ll call an end to the three events that were running:

S2 Edinburgh

Jezza - 1.58.619 (Apollo) - 59th overall
Alerioon - 1.58.886 (Apollo) - 68th
Rayne - 1.59.636 (VW ID-R) - 101st
Bree - 2.00.903 (Apollo) - 150th
Baron - 2.02.039 (Apollo) - 194th
FN - 2.02.313 (CCGT) - 206th
Odessa - 2.03.790 (MC12 Corsa) - 295th
PABO - 2.04.324 (Apollo) - 319th
Potbox - 2.06.693 (Sesto) - 494th
Rex - 2.07.494 (MC12 FE) - 561st
Spiko - 2.07.928 (FXX) - 593rd
Matteo - 2.09.396 (MC12 FE) - 692nd
M0rt - 2.11.165 (Vulcan FE) - 837th
Runruss - 2.11.965 (Huayra BC) - 921st
RB033 - 2.04.018* (McLaren F1 GT)

A challenging course with a mix of street furniture and tight corners next to walls. Well done for everyone who recorded a time.

A good lesson on how dominant the CCGT is on some courses by the way. I’m nearly 4 seconds off the lead time but only 4 of the times ahead of me are non CCGT.

As I thought that S2 wouldn’t be to everyone’s taste, I did a dirt alternative. Unfortunately I didn’t think it through very well so did S1 Lakeside Trail. If the S2 event was 4 star difficulty this was probably 5 star with the comedy fun of dealing with bumps and jumps at high speed. Apologies but thanks to all who gave it a try:

Jezza - 1.47.007 (TZ2 - well known rally car 😂) - 27th
Bree - 1.47.671 (TZ2) - 38th
Aleriooon - 1.47.774 (TRX) - 40th
Ziperr - 1.48.097 (Lola) - 45th
Baron - 1.49.009 (Nomad) - 60th
Rex - 1.50.010 (33S) - 87th
PABO - 1.50.711 (TZ2) - 114th
RB033 - 1.50.997 (TRX) - 121st
Squryl - 1.51.578 (Trailcat) - 147th
Odessa - 1.52.062 (Hoonigan RS200) - 168th
Spiko - 1.52.679 (33S) - 203rd
Runruss - 1.53.380 (33S) - 243rd
FN - 1.53.699 (TRX) - 266th
Matteo - 1.54.648 (Mustang DD) - 336th
Leetorts - 1.57.100 (TZ2) - 561st
M0rt - 1.59.686 (Mustang DD) - 861st
Penguin - 1.59.853 (TRX) - 884th

And last but probably most popular C class Lakehurst Forest:

Ziperr - 2.10.996 (74 Civic) - 5th
Bree - 2.11.368 (74 Civic) - 6th
Squryl - 2.12.182 (Manx) - 11th
Runruss - 2.13.667 (Manx) - 18th
Spiko - 2.14.401 (74 Civic) - 23rd
Rayne - 2.14.618 (Wrangler) - 25th
Rex - 2.14.701 (74 Civic) - 27th
PABO - 2.14.735 (74 Civic) - 28th
FN - 2.15.681 (Sunbeam) - 35th
Odessa - 2.16.603 (74 Civic) - 42nd
Matteo - 2.17.304 (73 Range Rover) - 50th
Penguin - 2.18.105 (74 Civic) - 58th
Baron - 2.21.508 (Sunbeam) - 105th
M0rt - 2.21.842 (74 Civic) - 111th

Some close battles there! Ziperr I think sneaked past Bree on the last day or two.

I thought the Manx was banned from this event?

Edit: Apparently not so it seems, i think i can do a lot better in the Manx to be honest.

Not a fan of S2 hence my position :) Events in Edinburgh seem to be my achilles heel in fh4 for some silly reason...........

Going to have to practice i suppose.

If you have not tried the AM Vulcan FE on Edinburgh you should do so. It is slower to Apollo and CCGT but it is a dream to drive. One of the most easy handling S2 vehicles.

Indeed I probably would have done too, I think it was more of a gentleman's agreement not to use it rather than it being banned.

edit - I went 2.75 seconds quicker than my Sunbeam time in my first attempt with Hamilton HD's 182hp tune, for 13th.

I used the Vulcan AMR before the Apollo, and there's not a lot in it, most of my runs in the Apollo were slower than my best run in the Vulcan AMR.

I´m satisfied with my S2 time, before this rivals event i avoided S2.
The ´dirt´ event was more like a CC event 😄 but i enjoyed it.

*Normally i prefer trials over circuit events, but for rivals i like it more because you can keep going.

I like this week’s circuit. Will be intriguing to see which car ends up being quickest. Only tried the Lotus 2-eleven so far.

Second car tried is the 99 Elise. Sneaked on to page 1 with a 1.02.3. ForbiddenBeef21’s tune.

Moved to the Supervan (Scaans) - 1.02.2. Up to 9th and fastest non GT1.

Ok, so a bit late to the party. lol

I got curious so I ran a few to see what I could turn up. (This was for the last event: Edinburgh and Lakehurst Forest)

S2 - Edinburgh - 207.561 (VW ID-R) - 570th

S1 - Lakehurst Forest - 152.813 (Trailcat) - 218th

I didn't spend any time on the C-class but ran a Volvo somewhere in the 2:20's.

That was more fun than I thought. Tried out 7 different cars for Edinburgh. Lakehurst was a killer for me. I could manage a full second faster if they had a one-bump allowance. lol

I don't have the expansion, so you guys have fun. Maybe I'll see you when you're back in the Mainland.
