Format & Regulations

Cars

This season will use the multitude of classic cars available in Forza 4, as balanced to around A Class by the guys over at VM. All the cars can be found here.

You will be able to select your car right up until your first race in the championship. However, once you have done a race you will not be able to change your car mid season, so make sure you're happy using what you've chosen. Whatever it is you choose, there will be tracks which suit your car and tracks which don't suit it, so don't fret if one week features tracks that your car doesn't work particularly well on - it'll come back to you in another week.

Once you have chosen your car from the list, click on it and you will be taken to a post which outlines what upgrades to put on the car. You must fit all of the upgrades and only the upgrades listed! Tuning will be permitted if the upgrades on your car allow for it. You may not add extra/different parts in order to be able to tune.

Anyone suspected of running an illegal build on their car will be subject to an inquiry and punished accordingly.

Format

The season will be split into 7 events, one per week, running on alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays. Six of the seven weeks will feature three races, each lasting roughly twenty minutes in length. As there is no qualifying, the grid ordering will be random for the first race, in race order for the second race and in reverse order for the third race. Week four of the calendar will only feature two races, each lasting around half an hour in length. Both of these races will have random grids.
