    This event opened at 5pm Pacific July 8 and will close at 5pm Pacific July 10 (Monday & Tuesday UTC) with the global leaderboard used for seeding regional Saturday Ghost races. This event is under Single Player > Rivals > ForzaRC menu.

“Must be registered to compete for ForzaRC. All participants will earn in-game reward(s).” TBA

When will the handbook be updated to include the car/track combos for the ghost races and heats? It still only lists the Series 1 combos.

I don’t see why this would matter so much for the general non-pro user. Unless there’s something I’m missing.

My point would be that if someone on PC is using a controller just like they would on Xbox (As wheel use generally means slower lap times) then surely it’s just the same as using the Xbox, albeit with more FPS if you have a decent PC.

I personally have both a PC & Xbox but I tend to play on PC specifically.

these types of cars are my kryptonite, no matter how I tackle each turn I cant keep it stable enough to prevent losing speed. the best I have managed is 1:42.6 and I know I need to knock of at least another second to make the weekend races. this will probably be the first week I don’t qualify.

Looks like I’m done. For whatever reason i thought rivals started today. Oh well. This would have been a rivals event that I should do very well. Muscle cars + road Atlanta = fast times for me.

Looks like I’ll bow out of the competition. No point in continuing since missing one qualifying rivals is a huge loss.

I haven´t managed to qualify for the weekend races at all but am still in, just for the fun of it and having fun, unless you are fast enough to reach the finals and do your best against the TOP drivers I would continue for the fun of it if I were you

I’m not quick enough to place in finals, but can reach top 24 in weekend races if the cars suit me or if I practice.

Fun for me is seeing where I end up overall with what time I do have to play and max effort. I missed one week so that ends that experiment.

To be fair, I’ll probably still try some of these rivals if I remember or if I really dig the car selected but grinding lap times won’t happen. That’s what I mean about bowing out. No longer will I be chasing top 24 qualifying spots or every point possible.

Lately fun for me has been Horizon 2 and chasing achievements.

well I don’t understand why, but somehow I qualified for the weekend races. I wont do well though cause I didn’t practice last night. ill still do my best.

Guys, when (what date) will they announce the cars and tracks for Round 2?

Never git a chance to do the obe to get the two reward cars as rivials wasnt working which was,a bit off a pain
