Hard Luck Racing's Hotlap Challenges Week 14: Grand Oak National, B Class, Modern Sport Compact

Hello all friends and fellow lovers of hotlapping, we at Hard Luck Racing thought it was time to revive another season of our weekly Hotlap Challenges on Forza Motorsport.

Commencing at midnight GMT, on Monday, 20th November we will post details of our first event in this thread.

Everyone is welcome to join in the fun, so feel free to get involved, and also get your friends to join you. If we get sufficient support we’ll split the group into ability tiers from week 2 onwards to give all drivers a chance to win something.

We understand the effort involved in levelling up cars, so thought it would be useful to give you the car division restriction for the first event in advance. You will be restricted to cars in the Street Drag Racers division. Track and class will be given on Monday.

If you are interested in taking part, and haven’t driven with us before, we would appreciate you dropping a quick reply here with some details for analysis:

  • Console or PC?
  • Input device, Controller, Wheel, or Keyboard?
  • Driver view, Bumper, Hood, Cockpit, Driver, Chase Near or Chase Far?

We’ll add you to our friends list, and include your lap times on our leaderboard, which can be viewed here - HLC Leaderboard

In addition to bragging rights, the winner(s) will get the chance to claim an excusive personalised livery for their car.

Hope to see you all on track soon.

All skill levels are welcome. The objective is to have some fun, and perhaps drive some cars that otherwise you wouldn’t have chosen. Hopefully everyone will find other drivers close to their level to compete against.

Alright, I’m in. I work overnights so I’m around more in the morning. Currently Mountain time, but since Arizona doesn’t do DST I’m Pacific time during the spring/summer.

Both wheel and controller
PC
I can do any cam, but it depends on which input I’m using. Wheel and 3rd person just seems wrong…lol.
