A great week in the leagues is soon over, and personally i’ll be missing the Classic Compact E class. This has been a lot of fun, where i did pretty well in the races, got to learn the Mazda Cosmo, and the Lotus Elan Srint and found some great tunes for them.
For week 48, Forza is moving away from the slower cars, and will run Leagues for B class, S Class and R class. Non the less, they look interesting and fun!
Exotic GT Division
I have trouble figuring out what Exotic GT really is. Roughly, it should mean that this division should be for cars originating in a distant foreign country. Or at least models you won’t see that often. Or even cars by manufacturers that are not that well known. The truth though, is that the Exotic GT Division, includes some of the most popular cars, that you probably see on all races!
Non the less, for this leageu, you’ll have to pick an S class car from the Exotic GT division, that includes cars like Aston Martin DBS, Ford GT, Porche 911 GT2 RS. They have to be in S Class though, so find a good tune to upgrade your favourite car, if it is not S Class already.
Open B Class Ghost
The Ghost leagues (and races) are the safest places to be. Do collisions means that cars can’t hurt each other. The only thing you can do wrong is hurt yourself or cheat by corner cutting and track extending. If you keep on the track, you’ll do ok.
B class is a fun class, where you’ll find all sorts of cars. There are crazy fast cars, and there are cars that handle a little too well to be racing. Any car that has been tuned to B class will be accepted, so it doesn’t need to be B when you buy it. Tuning an E class car into a B class, for example, is allowed but maybe not the best choice. Let us know in the comments what you picked and why!
Spec Leagues are fun, because all the racers have the same car (even though they may look slightly different). For this league, it is a stock 1979 #6 BMW Motorsport M1 Procar. This car car 471 Hp, weighs in at just a little bit more than 1000Kg (2249Lbs) and ranks in at a PI of S777.
This car may seem intimidating at first, but is actually a very gentle car, that handles great! It is so low, and well balanced, that you’ll feel comfortable in it right from the start. I am sure that there are going to be some pretty good racing in this league, and i look forward to spending some time in it.
