hmm...something about this month's rivals. None are jumping out at me yet. When I see a track I like mentioned, the event type is not my preferred discipline. Then when I see a standard hotlap event it's not on a track I like.

Does that mean I will not run them? Nope. See ya on the track.

Your RVM's John show racing that should be represented in Forza games. Forza Trophee Andros sounds awesome lol
I blame the ants.

Looking forward to setting some high marks again this month for you, John. I'm starting to love these types of events with traffic. It should be fun weaving through trucks and SUVs, especially on Prague. Good luck to everyone! You're gonna need it John. Cheers! :)

I've loved Rally since I grew up watching Colin McRae driving the 555 in the mid-ninties. There's something so primal and engaging about racing at lightning speeds on poor surfaces, dashing amongst trees and nearly falling off cliffs. It's like if they ran the GTLM race at Laguna, but on either side of the corkscrew there's a sheer drop and certain doom. It's thrilling, and to me, a fantastic introduction to motorsport. Rally and touring cars are what got me interested in the sport, the intensity of the drivers and races.

The WRC needs to come back to America! It hasn't been here since Olympus in 88 and I wasn't born yet, so if they could scoot back on over here and give me some proper TV coverage I'd be very grateful....I guess Pike's Peak will have to do for now though.

Hi,
I'm french and i often go around tracks to see the Trophee Andros. It's very funny. It always give a lot of competition in every category (funniest is moto).
Concerning WRC, i think Sweden is one of the most difficult rallye in the season. This year i hope Volkswagen will win. Sebastien Ogier is the worthy successor of Loeb and his car is the fastest.
Let's wait, see and enjoy!!!

Yet another great read this week. I always love hearing about the rally stuff. A more manageable fleet of 3 cars and 3 bikes? What might those be? The Lambo you sent me is a great car, sweet handling and grip. Time for another drifter ;)

Couldn't understand the hosts but the race looked fun. I also got to try out Forza 5, and I gotta say it's way different feel from Forza 4, but better car audio and more realistic handling. Can't wait to own it.

Hello John, I believe that in Sweden the VW and Ogier are the favorites.
Polo wrc is a great car.
The rally of montecarlo is very exciting, most of the race of the F1 cars.

I love rally events. The variety of terrains and conditions, on top of the dangers and difficulties when compared to closed track championships... so exciting.
I wish we could have rally events in the Forza series. u_u

OK John, ** BEST ** ** RVM ** ** EVA **.


  1. Oh man, I'm going to need to attend a 12-step program. I got stuck on the WRC site for hours watching the racing videos and reviewing the 2013 photos.
  2. That Monte Carlo race was great. I wish we could race on snow in Horizon Rally, I'd love to do a race series like that.
  3. I really DID NOT flinch during that rally drive by Mads, it was awesomely awesome. I guess I was always looking far down the track so the speed and corners really didn't seem all that bad at all. The only part that even remotely registered in my *WARNING: Will Robinson** scale was at about the 3:45 mark those pedestrians standing so close to the course in the small village, they were risking their lives there. Other than that, I was surprised how early Mads downshifted in preparation for corners, he was downshifting a few hundred feet before any corner, which I thought was pretty conservative, or maybe I'm just crazy.
  4. Those French announcers were really into that race screaming at the competition between the lead cars. I was cracking up when they got so carried away that one of them started coughing and couldn't speak for several seconds because his voice failed him.
  5. Hey, was that a drivatar in that Mini Cooper? It sure looked like it when the Mini drifted sideways into the Mazda (~3:30 mark) and then pushed him out in the corner so that he could have a straight line...although, I admit that as soon as he cleared the Mazda, he just sped away from him, so it must have been very frustrating dealing with the blocking of the Mazda.
  6. That move for 3rd by the LeFort car was a beauty!
  7. Man, I love ice racing. I don't care much for the drifting, but the racing is delicious.
  8. Dude, you need to report your final times for those Rival events. :D
  9. Was there a bounty on you? I just wonder because I think I beat you in every event (I didn't race either of the Drift races) but the Catalunya...not brag, just fact. When can we expect to see you singing on YouTube?
  10. Congrats to your Seahawks, both the SF game and the SB surprised me. I was in Seattle the week that the record for the loudest stadium was set (again, against SF) and I have to say that the Seattle fans are just about the most fanatical I've seen, maybe only the Raiders fans are as into their team.
  11. I can't wait to look into the virtual motorsports and Xbox Pro Leagues, although I'm no where near good enough to even come close to competing, it would fun just to get involved in some series stuff.


Great, great RVM John, keep it up!

The Monte Carlo Rally is legendary. In europe this rally takes on an important role. It´s the same like somebody wins the F1 Grand Prix of Monaco.
Ogier will also dominate in 2014. At the moment he has no challengers and his car is perfect. I think he also will win the Sweden Rally. It is fun too see them driving on ice and snow. It would be really nice to bring back the WRC to US.

The february rivals will be much fun. I agree it´s good to see attention to the VM Forza 4 rivals Events.

Hey John. I just threw down a clean lap of 2:18.764 on Giant Killer with the Mini on my first go. I plan on trying to get it down around the 2:15 mark by months end. You're more than welcome to try my tune for the Mini. You can just type in keyword "Giant Killer" and it should be there. Cheers!
