So far, Forza Motorsport 4 players have tested their driving skills in our King of the Track Rivals Mode challenge against one of baseball’s best pitchers and against one of the toughest guys on the planet. Now it’s time to pit your driving skills against a race car driver. This month’s King of the Track rival is none other than international superstar driver Juan Pablo Montoya!

 

Currently driving in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Montoya holds the rare distinction of being the winner of both the Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix, two legs of the Triple Crown of Motorsport. Over the years, Montoya’s long and storied racing career has seen him race in a number of series, including F3000, CART where he won the title during his rookie year in 1999; Formula One where he drove and won for both Williams and McLaren; and NASCAR, where he currently drives the #42 Target Chevrolet Impala.

 

Without a doubt Montoya’s got racing cred and, with the March King of the Track contest, here’s your chance to put your skills to the test. Beginning today, we’ll be featuring the March King of the Track event. Once Juan Pablo has set his time in the event (look for his Gamertag: JuanPMontoya42), we will open it up to the rest of the Forza 4 world [UPDATE: The event is now open!]. To find the King of the Track challenge, simply navigate to "Rivals Mode" within Forza 4 and go to the "Community Monthly" channel. The monthly King of the Track challenge will be found in this channel. As with all Rivals Mode challenges, you can run as many times as you like in order to set your fastest time.

 

Everyone who participates in the March King of the Track will be eligible to win a 2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato (Villa d’Este) from the March Pirelli Car Pack (March Pirelli Car Pack required to redeem). In addition, those who beat Juan Pablo’s time in the Rivals Mode event will win a 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 unicorn car. The overall top prize winner will also win a special grand prize.

 

So, now that you know how it works, it’s time to prepare to take on one of the world’s top drivers! Good luck to everyone!
