This might be a dumb question, but I'm still confused as to the whole setup. I signed up on ESL and am signed up for the Open tournament, but it says that my next match is TBD 19 days from now. I thought it already started? I assumed it would match me up with someone, I'd contact them, race them 1v1 and then save/submit a replay or something. Do I have to go into the "League" section of the game and race there? I took a break from F6 and am coming back to it- I feel like this tournament should be more clearly laid-out. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

It's is clearly laid out. The open tournament isn't an actual tournament. No 1v1 will occur. You only have to sign up if you want to be certified as eligible to receive prizes via finishing top 50% in leagues.

1v1 will only occur after the 128 qualifiers of the elite tournament are determined.

Did they just merge threads, or something? Seems I've lost some posts here in the process.

At any rate: in one of those lost posts, I had asked what "participation" actually means; if I race -- and finish -- a single League race in the required league, do I get the Falcon? If I set a clean lap in the Rivals event, do I get the Escort? And no, I have not signed up on the ESL, because I read somewhere here that's not required to win unicorns.

Just to clear things up;

The unicorns don't require a sign up on ESL, just set a time in rivals for the escort and race atleast a single race in leagues for the falcon.

A sign up is required if you want to receive Dlc which you can get by standing in the 50% in leagues.
Or if you want to go for the big prizes which includes Xbox one's, Forza horizon 3 or even a real 2017 ford focus RS.

Hope this clears things up.

This.

I think I have figured it out by myself. Simply go race in the special Rivals event for Elite Cup and the special League event for the Open Cup. If you make the top 128 it gets more confusing, but I am not expecting to do that. I am still unclear if you have to save the replay after every race for it to count.

The car for this week is a DLC car which can be purchased here https://www.microsoft.co...-gt-le-mans/c58zkrlvp3rs or you can go to the store on xbox and search Ford GT Le Mans and buy it there.

They gave away a code to get this car for free back in June. I either never got the code or failed to use it before it was deleted from my messages on xbox dashboard. If you owned Forza 6 before June and want to try to get the code you can make a post here and see if they will send you a code.. https://forums.xbox.com/..._one_support/f/4272.aspx or you could shell out the $2.99 for the DLC if you don't want to wait.

Seems kind of lame that they used a DLC car for this. Some people playing this championship may not have owned Forza 6 when they gave out the code. Personally I can spare the $3 and will just buy the car so I don't have to wait for support to send me a code. The DLC Nascar Expansion is worth the $3.

Hope this helps.

I just purchased the car. Before you do check to see if it is available in My Cars or the marketplace for free. This is the first car I bought and thought it would just show up in my cars list. It did but it was in the first tab that said free cars. Not sure how the DLC thing works but I may have spent $3 without needing to. It is also showing up in the league now as a rental being available also where it wasn't doing that yesterday.

No, that's how it works.

DLC doesn't add cars to My Cars, it adds a one-time-free purchase of that car with Credits or Tokens from the Find A Car menu.

The event as a whole was great and the ending was pretty amazing. That being said, I think there should be a few modifications for season 2 including a limit on the number of players representing a same team, because on-track tactics can't be removed from the equation otherwise.

Looking forward to S2, congratulations to all involved!
