Haha, and we thought the first turn sucked before!!!

Forza 5 supports 24 players online, has 120 new cars and dedicated servers

Wow, it would be awesome if we had 24 people in our tournaments, with no crashes of course... unless it's a Friday night tournament.

That is ridiculous and crazy lol. Imagine starting in the back of a 24 man pack.

5 lap races wouldn't cut it anymore in a 24 man pack that's for sure

Yeah, I'm sure we'll do the same thing we always do and discuss new tournament structure, rules, settings, etc when the new game drops. I really hope we have more options for customizing the starting grid.

I've been thinking of setting up a side season...or whatever you want to call it for open wheel racing with much longer distances for those that might be interested.  I don't know if anybody even will be, so we'll see.  Some of that will depend on if there is realistic tire wear/pit stops/fuel usage, etc.

Kind of like a real season with one race per week, or whatever length between races.  Setting up the whole season beforehand with all tracks known for the season before the season starts.  Maybe something like "S7 Open Wheel Season" or something like that.  I'd love to do that with F1, but nobody plays that here.

So would it be something like 30-50 laps per track per week?  Make it somewhat realistic to the real deal?  I think that would be neat.

Definitely interesting idea. I'm sure we'll have a ton of stuff going on. I'm sure we'll have Forza 5 forums up soon where we can post all our ideas and whatnot.

I expect we'll have:
The regular Season races
Late Night Series

and I'm sure there's room for a 'hardcore' type open wheel race. Especially with how active people are for new games and new systems.

Yes, exactly.  I'm really hoping that they incorporate realistic tire wear so that people that want to set hotlaps in a race can do so, but they will wear their tires a lot faster than those that are willing to back of just a bit and save their tires.  Could make for some interesting strategies...if they do it right.

Make it a fri or sat and I'd be down for some single track, longer races.

To be honest, I think with the longer races it allows for learning of the track/opponents more and results in good racing. Sucks if you get wrecked but really, if you're racing for 60-90mins, everyone can afford to be a little more cautious into the first corner. Hell, we could even do a timed qualifying session.

Also, you only have to worry about a single car/tune.

Yeah definitely friday or saturday for this type of race. That's the only night I could ever consistently make sure I have 1-2 hours for a single race. 50 laps on Leguna Seca would be a blast. Timing Pit stops, lapping people, etc. If it was open wheel there would be some interesting damage over the time of the race too (one does not simply race 50 laps with other racers on 'seca without taking damage)

Cool idea I'd be down to try. 24 racers is crazy not sure we would have that many. Maybe if they don't have a grid customization thing we will have to test it out or limit the number of slots.
