King of the Track -- January
Think you have what it takes to be the King of the Track? Now you’ll have your chance as we kick off our Forza Motorsport 4 King of the Track challenge series. Beginning today, we’ll be featuring monthly Rivals Mode challenges in Forza 4 pitting you against a host of celebrities, to see if you’ve got what it takes to be the best. Here’s how the contest works:
Each month, you’ll need to run our monthly King of the Track Rivals Mode challenge, featuring the pre-determined car and track combination. 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.
All participants will receive an in-game car for participating and, if you beat the posted time by the celebrity participant, you’ll win a rare unicorn car. The player with the overall best time will also win a special grand prize as well.
For the inaugural event in January, you’ll be taking on MLB pitcher C. J. Wilson. Wilson, recently signed by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, played in the MLB All-Star Game in 2011 during his final season with the Texas Rangers. Wilson is also an avid racer, owner of the CJ Wilson Racing Team, which fields cars in the Grand Am and Mazda MX5 Cup series.
If you want to track how you compare to CJ in the event, search for his Gamertag--Cjwilson33--in the Rivals Mode event. Once CJ has posted his time, we'll update this story with the time you need to beat. [UPDATE: As of 1/8/11, CJ's posted time is 1:13.98. You can keep track of CJ's time on the King of the Track leaderboard by checking out the King of the Track Facebook app.]
All participants in the January King of the Track challenge will win a 2012 Pagani Huayra with a unique livery (purchase of the January Jalopnik Pack required to redeem). If you beat CJ’s posted time, you will win a 2003 Ferrari Challenge Stradale unicorn car.
The overall top time of the contest (which ends on midnight on January 31), will win a memorabilia pack signed by CJ Wilson (note that the grand prize is only available to US residents). Good luck to all participants!
