The fourth round of the Oppositelock Forza 7 Endurance Championship at Maple Valley is next weekend on Saturday, April 28th at 8:00 PM EDT. If you’d like to learn more about the series, click the link and get all the info. Or, if you’ve already read the plan but haven’t signed up yet, click here to go straight to the sign up sheet.
If you’re not racing with us, many of us stream the races on twitch, the links for which will be posted on race day. A list of streamers from the previous round can be found here.
Also, instead of using parties or gamechat, we are going to be using the Oppositelock Racing/Digital Burnouts Discord to communicate during the races. If for some reason we are not using the app or it fails, we will be using gamechat to communicate, and hoping for the best. HERE IS THE INFO AND SERVER ACCESS LINK FOR THE DISCORD SERVER.
BoP is underway! Builds haven’t changed yet, but I can guarantee that they will be done by Monday. I’ll be doing a test session tonight after Viggen’s spec 2CV series that you should totally race in too because hon hon hon lol what’s 0 to 60. You can follow BoP changes here. Any builds that change will be highlighted, and I will provide a full list of cars that have been given new builds once the BoP process is done. Also, I am adding 1 new car to the Sports-Proto class and 3 new cars to the GT class: the 1966 Porsche 906 Carrera 6, the 1980 Porsche 924 Carrera GTS, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona Hemi, and the 1986 BMW M635 CSI. I will have preliminary builds for the cars up soon, though those builds may change with the rest of the BoP. In addition, at the time of this writing, the car pack with the two Porsches hasn’t released yet. Builds for those will be created as soon as the pack is released, even if it is one hour before the race.
Also make sure to follow the weather. The forecast right now calls for sun and 10% chance of rain next Saturday, but I’d still put in some wet laps.
Reminder that we are using the reverse configuration of the full circuit. And be sure to watch out for the jump in the last sector. I’m not joking when I say I think someone’s car is going to get passed by jumping over it. The potential for rain makes the scenario doubly terrifying...
Look for more reminders for this race over the next three weeks. If anything changes before the next race, I’ll post about it there first.
Hope to see you there on race day!
