    Does anyone fancy a bit of a challenge ?
    Driving the top gear track in a vehicle of our choice but all the same settings for everyone ? any takers and suggestions ?
    Maybe an Audi seeing as we are branded ?

    I'm up for that.

    Lap times must be completed without '!'

    What ABS / TCS / Simulator / settings etc. should be the benchmarks?

    i'm up for that...can i suggest we use the 1983 Audi Quattro Sport, must be standard people can use ABS and other assists as they please.

    Or we can keep it real and use a resonably priced car i.e 2011 KIA CEE'D

    Opening gambit in haste before work this morning:

    Car: Audi Quattro (Class B 462) - Completely standard in Hot Lap Mode
    Time: 1m 27.360s

    Racing line:Off
    TCS:Off
    Stability:Off
    ABS:On
    All settings set to simulator

    Wasn't a perfect lap by a long way, got to be at least 3 seconds plus to eek out, but gives us a stake in the ground. Full HD video can be provided of the lap inc. username details on screen. No ! So it was a 'clean' lap

    Who's next!!

    why dont we just have an audi-sport.net car club on Forza 4 and then this would be so much easier to Administrate. You can see what car, what times, what assists were used and if they went off track or not.

    OK, Car club tag is "AS N".

    I thought you would be able to set up your own challenges/rivals matches i.e. Audi Quattro on the Top Gear track but i can't see how. Maybe we'll just have to do it through Hot Laps instead.

    There is a stock Audi Quattro in the club garage

    my time; 1:27.041

    look at me look at me! lol That was no assists and a clean lap, although i change gear without a clutch

    I have set a car club up as above with two takers so far... but its not as useful as i had first thought it might be becuase you cant set up your own rivals matches :( So unless we do the standard Forza 4 Rivals matches that are already in the game then we will have to just post our times here

    yeah but if your changing gear yourself you may as well call it a wet lap and add 4 seconds to my time, i couldn't concentrate as hard as i do AND change gear lol.

    Ok I'm really sad as I have nothing better to do but....01:25.336 clean. I reckon high 24's are possible but my swearing is getting louder so I'll leave it for now :)
    Also I've noticed you'll get a ! On your next lap if you mess up on the corner before the straight (3rd corner from finish) which I think is ridiculous!

    Nice one mate, now I know what I'm doing tomorrow.

    You don't necessarily need to be online to join in the fun, but you do need the game, do it :) I've only joined gold 2 days ago purely for this but don't think it was needed, kids appreciated it anyway, my connection is **** but seems to manage COD ok
