Special Event 33: Mustang Madness!

Postby RaceProUK » 18 Jul 2014, 09:59

Anyone want to race some muscle cars? Then this is the event for you! Bringing together four Mustangs from the full 50-year history, and taking in four tracks across the width of the US, we celebrate the Mustang the only way we know how!

I'm keeping this event nice and simple; all four cars are being raced stock, and grids will be random. I'd also encourage people to turn the TC off; part of the fun of these cars is getting them sideways after all :D

I'll send round numberboxes in due course, and they are to be placed on both flanks and on the bonnet. Please don't resize them ;)
The number comes in two colours: if you are a Pro i.e. you have won an official RlyR FM4 race, use the green numbers, otherwise use the blue numbers. Other than that, paint these cars in any way you see fit! These are mine:
Image

And of course, there's a launch video 8-)

Any questions? No? Good - see you on track!

Edit: Oh, by the way, it's August 28th. That might be important.

Event timetable
7:30pm - Lobby opens, invites sent out
8:00pm - First race begins
Expected event duration: 1.2-1.5 hours

Here's a question: what's the date of this event?

Edit: never mind, looked at the Wiki. Might just be able to make this one :D

Edit 2: put me down as a 50/50 for now.

In, naturally :)

Although, I have to say, I don't think think there will be a big enough turnout on Forza now to make the whole Pro/Am thing worthwhile. I hope I'm wrong.

We should still have more AMs than PROs attending though, so I don't think it's a bad thing to have that distinction really. It's not like there will be separate podiums, the results will merely skip the race winners. Should be closer now that Koopa is in PRO as well.

Since this will be the first Forza event in a while, why not miss your class just this once?

Not like your kickboxing instructor will kick your ass or anything ;).

I've sent numberboxes out to everyone who's signed up so far. Both green and blue numbers are included; just delete the colour you're not using ;)

Not a fan of the cars but it'd be rude for me to miss Special Event 33 wouldn't it?

IN for now.

I am confused by the fact that the cars are from different PI groups.
Can you explain?

Probably IN.

Basically, we race in a different car in each race.
However, we all drive the same car at the same time so that it's all equal.

Race 1: Everybody in Mustang A
Race 2: Everybody in Mustang B
etc.

The event celebrates the history of the Mustang by allowing us to sample versions from different eras. Luckily they're stock too so no need to tune 4 cars for 1 night :)
