How do you choose the class? I have tried many times. I created routes, saved them and in the edit race settings of the event does not have the car class option. Even logged in Horizon Life or Solo this option is missing.

I had same problem, but when my 5 slots were full, I found I could go to ‘blueprint’ then instructed I had to overwrite an event to be able to create a new one , and while in horizon life mode, proceed to make the event you want and you should be given the car class choice after selecting the car for the race. This only worked for me in places where all 5 slots were already filled … give that a try and if need-be make other blueprints to fill the 5 slots, before making your new Custom event entry. I hope this works for you

How can I conform to the rules regarding class of car, when I have no option to designate a specific car class to an event? custom route creator issue forza horizon 4

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.

I have been in contact with Craig littler, head level designer, and he has taken note of the issue and is currently looking in to it

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 :frowning: … so, it did work, then it failed … I’m baffled now… I will also pass this on to CL.

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.

I’ll give that a try later … thanks … I can also tell you that I have been in contact with Craig littler, head level designer, and he has taken note of the issue and is currently looking in to it
