Damage will be set to cosmetic, with fuel and tire wear on.
All cars must have the series number plate on both R/L sides of the car. (see "Number Plate" section below)Track Limits:
Every track in Forza has a solid line denoting the track limit. Almost always are the kerbs outside the track limit line. The golden rule is that at least 2 tires on the car must be on the track surface. Two example photos are shown, the first of acceptable cornering, and the second of track cutting.
ACCEPTABLE CORNERING: Two tires are still on the track surface
TRACK CUTTING: All four tires are off the track surface denoted by the solid white lineNumber Plate:
A specialized number plate has been made for the series. The plate needs to be visible on both R/L side-pods of the car.
(See images above for placement)
The large open space is for your race number. The small open space is for a sponsor decal.
The plate can be found in Forza by the username: "EXOR Popolac" with a tagline of F-MAZDA.Points System:
