Post your Xbox gamertags here and lets do a spot of racing!

http://forza3championship.blogspot.com/ - official blog, everybody check it out and bookmark it.

We could potentially make a UG racing league if enough people were interested.

In the immortal words of Murray Walker "Go! Go! Go!"




Information:

Possible awarded points per race:

1st - 25
2nd - 18
3rd - 15
4th - 12
5th - 10
6th - 8
7th - 6
8th - 4


Very similar to the Formula One system but with only 8 points winning positions.

Details:

- Each race is 20 laps
- 8 Races in total
- Cars must abide by 'Class A' regulations
- Every race held on a Sunday 1PM GMT
- A blog will be set up where race information and race results, lap times and championship results will be hosted.
- The championship winner will receive 1 Internet.

Im just curious, why would UG need, or want a "racing league"?

I mean, I'm kind of busy, searching the forums and playing guitar. . . .

Is that your gamertag? Haha. I'll add you chaps to the list.


I'm thinking that for each race the points would work out like this:

1st - 25
2nd - 18
3rd - 15
4th - 12
5th - 10
6th - 8
7th - 6
8th - 4

We can decide on the total number of races and perhaps also think about 1 v 1 shootouts for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th overall.

Any ideas?

That's one of the reasons I thought of this thread, I thought it might get everyone in the mood ready for Forza 4.

God i suck at those simulation car games. I just got rich in forza 2 because it seems no matter how old the game is and no matter how few people still ply it, they will always buy a copy of that car from duke of hazard.

What do we think about having teams of no more than two people and that way we can have a two sided championship. Custom liveries, keep it fun and light hearted!

Any ideas for regulations, etc. or shall we keep it to 'A class' and let anything else go?

Btw can we use different cars for each race or do we have to use the same one?

I think it's best to use the same car, however you are completely free to modify and customise your car between races.

Sign me on up, gamertag is Phalen123

I'm no pro at racing either(:

Edit: I suggest we have restrictions on cars, for instance we all use the same car or same car class and I think it'd be a good idea to restrict AWD on some races if necessary

Good to here you're getting involved, I have been thinking about restrictions and there is a few minor ones already (look on the blog), but that is mostly based around the PI number of the car. This does a fairly good job of keeping everything fairly level, and yet allows people freedom to modify a car to make the most their creations within the parameters.

Has everybody stickied this thread?

I'm not going to be around on Sunday for the first race, could everybody make a race held on wednesday night? Just in order to make sure this sort of thing can really happen successfully. Which would be the best way of contacting people en mass?

I could definitely make it to a race on Wednesday. You could probably just post in the thread for most of us, but just to be safe maybe make a group with updates and/or post to everyone's profile telling and reminding them.

It would be good if we could assemble everyone's email addresses and doing it that way. Whilst there's not many of us at the moment then it should be manageable doing it as you said. 1PM GMT okay for you?

That'd be 9:30am for me, and I'm as far east as North America gets. You might want to make the races a bit later so that if people on the east coast want to race, they wouldn't have to get up before 10am or so. So how about sometime in the evening GMT, like between 6 and 9pm?

7PM GMT? I'm happy with that and that should give you lot across the pond a chance to get out of bed!

My GT is Laceratiion....as lame as it is. I'll be up for a league of some sort.
#39
Judging by the amount interest we could potentially see two qualifying races with the top 4 of both going through to a final race. We're unfortunately limited by the 8 player racing on forza. Still we should be able to do it this way and it should still be fair.

Inbox people with times of races? But we'd have to decide on Car classes and restrictions beforehand. Unless there's some that are well-established for competitive races.
