Month in Review – November 2017


Hello once again! It’s that time once again to wrap up last month’s activities. November is now in our rear-view mirror and we had some great times both on and off the track. Here are some of the highlights

  • Full Racing Calendar – As we all know, Forza Motorsport is the primary title of the club and Number has seen some great action as the racing calendar is full of weekly events taking place. Below are just some of the highlights from this past month.
  • Racing Series/Event Highlights –
    • Podium Reports – Quentin 2O4F continues to provide our weekly Podium Reports which go into detail about all racing that is taking place within the club. You can read them all by Clicking Here
    • Race Car Series – Season 1 – Forza Motorsport 7 – The initial season of RCS on Forza 7 Thursday nights wrapped up Season 1 in the BMW and we crowned two champions. HLR Stu took home the Pro title while Fusion14 captured the ProAm title. Although we had some issues at the start of the season with invisible cars, buckets not working and some communication issues, we still managed to have 32 different drivers competing for the titles averaging over 20 people a night on the track.

    • Aussie Madness – Forza Motorsport 7 – Gizziegod wrapped up his first FM7 Euro Series with 14 drivers hitting the track this past season. These cars from down under were a blast to driver and the track selection really put them to the test. GTV Zeratul would prove that ole adage that consistency is the key to take a title as he took home the series championship. Well done! You can find more info about the series by Clicking Here
    • World Road Racing Challenge – Season 1 – Project Cars 2 – November saw the club complete its first series in something other than Forza as the club took to the track in Project Cars 2. Jay Waite took home the title with strong finishes throughout the season in the GT5 Ginetta. You can find more info about the series by Clicking Here
    • Ultimate Street Car Showdown – Japanese Edition – Forza Motorsport 7 – Drivebye is back with his weekly event/series as he brought us the Ultimate Street Car Showdown – Japanese Edition in a short 3 week series featuring B Class Japanese production cars for a 9 race event. No points, just fun racing that showed what a blast these cars can provide. You can find more info about the series by Clicking Here
    • Super Normal Tuesdays – Forza Motorsport 7 – Our casual night of racing continues along where the focus of the event is Clean Racing. We like to view this as an introduction to racing and racecraft, as well as a place to hone your skills without totally screwing up your friends racing night. The premise is quite simple actually. The group will start out in D class cars and run a race. If the racing goes clean and the moderators approve, the group can commence to run higher classes. If (when) everyone gets too full of themselves and proceeds to cause massive wreckage, we know we’ve gone about the current skill limit and we will move down a class into slower cars. We will also have a race or two during the night that are “special” where you may find yourself looking to the sky, literally. Its all in good fun and if your new to the club, this is a great way to get into the action. You can find more info about SNT by Clicking Here
    • Euro Track Nights – Forza Motorsport 7 – Perhaps one of our longest running event on the calendar come from the Euro side of the house in the form of Track Night. Giszziegod hosts a casual lobby on Wednesday nights (Euro time) where they pick a track and will then run different cars in various divisions at the track. It’s a great way to learn what the track has to offer. Gizzie of course loves his “Green Hell” Nordschleife and the event heads there on the last Wed of the month.

    • Hot lap Challenge – Forza Motorsport 7 – Another staple of the club is the weekly Hot lap Challenge. If you feel you are not ready to get into a series or your real-life schedule does not permit you the ability to get into one of the scheduled club events, then the HLC is right for you. Here you can challenge yourself each week in a new track and car combination to see who can take the top spot or you can try to beat your personal best. Season 1 is in the final weeks of the 9 week season and we have had some great combos thus far with 50 different drivers trying to take the title.
