Hot Laps: Season 9

Current Challenge Closes in:

Make Your Lap Count

You must be registered.  To register, comment with your Xbox Gamertag on the Hot Lap: Season 8 Registration Post, found on our FACR: Forza Motorsport Facebook group - link provided at the bottom of every page.


You must set your lap time within the Freeplay section of Forza Motorsport 7.
From the "Race Setup" page set:
Lap Count, Track scenario, Environment, and Car Division.
Remember to set Drivatars to '0'.
 Select 'Free Play'  from the 'Single Player' Menu
​​
You must set your lap time before the countdown timer above reaches zero.  Any laps completed after this time will not be counted.
​​
The final results for each week in the FACR Hot Lap Leaderboards (below) are updated on Fridays.  Mid-week updates may be done more where possible.



The new 'Friction Assist' feature MUST be turned off
in order for your lap to count!
​​

Conduct


FACR maintains a friendly, approachable and sporting environment. As such, any unsporting behaviour (Abuse, Trolling, Cheating, Assist shaming etc) may result in either a point deduction, disqualification, and/or possible removal from the Facebook
group.  We are all here for the same thing, so keep it friendly, and enjoy the competition!
​​
Assists / Car restrictions

There are no assist restrictions of any kind (exlcuding 'Friction Assist').

As long as you are using a car which qualifies for the current challenge, do whatever you have to, in order to set your fastest clean lap!

​​
Season Format​​

Each week you will be taking part in a Hot Lap Challenge.  There are 10 weeks per season.  This completes the season.

Every week, a homologated car division is chosen by FACR's Admin. This ensures an even mix of divisions thoughout the season.

The tracks you race each week get chosen by you, our players.  This is done via a poll-style vote on the FACR: Forza Motorsport facebook group.  3 different locations are offered at random.  The location with the most votes is raced.  The first track of the season is chosen for you and is announced when the season begins.


FACR Leagues​


There are three Main Leagues and one Optional League.


The three main leagues are; The Premier League, The Championship League, and The Academy League.  In order to qualify for any of these leagues, you must first prove your worth by clearing The Sorting Room.

Our Optional League is The Hardcore League.  Choosing to participate in this league does not eliminate you from the main leagues, nor does it in any way influence your position or ability to score points in the main leagues.  This league is merely for those who choose to have that extra challenge!








The Sorting Room

New to the group, or maybe it's just your first Hot Lap Season?  This is where you will start.

Your performance while in The Sorting Room will determine which of the main leagues (Premier, Championship, or Academy) most suits your ability.
For each week's Hot Lap Challenge, your fastest clean lap is recorded and compared to the Top 32 times set in each of the 3 main leagues.  At the end of each week you are awarded a League Placement Token to reflect your performance.


League Placement Tokens are awarded as follows:



A Premier League Placement Token is awarded if at the end of any particular week your lap is fast enough to match or beat a player who finishes inside the final Top 32 in The Premier League.

A Championship League Placement Token is awarded if at the end of any particular week your lap is fast enough to match or beat a player who finishes inside the final Top 32 in The Championship League.

An Acadmey League Placement Token is awarded if at the end of any particular week,  your lap is not fast enough to earn you either of the Premier or Championship tokens.  You must still set a clean lap. Dirty laps go unrewarded.
​​Collecting Tokens?

Now one token is not enough to determine your placement in the FACR Leagues -  after all, that Premier League Token might have been a fluke? Or that Academy League Token might have just been a bad run of luck?  Either way, your placement is decided upon earning 5 identical tokens.  Once you have collected 5 identical tokens, they determine in which league you are placed. *   **

*     Tokens earned carry over into following seasons.
**   Once you are placed into a league, you are exempt from relegation until the following season.




The Academy League

Points

Each week, points are awarded to all players who finish inside the top 32. 

1st place receives 32 points, 2nd place receives 31 points... and 32nd place receives 1 point. 

Points are totalled as the season progresses, and determine your final position in the Academy League Table.


Promotion

Finish the season among the top 5 players in the Academy League to secure your place in FACR's Championship League next season!

Should two or more players be eligable for promotion but finish the season on the same points, promotion is awarded to the player who achieved the highest World Ranking lap during any of the season's challenges.


Staying Active

Failing to complete at least one clean lap during the season results in automatic placement into FACR's Sorting Room.  It pays to stay active!




The Championship League

Points

Using the same format as the Academy League, each week, points are awarded to all players who finish inside the top 32.

1st place receives 32 points, 2nd place receives 31 points... and 32nd place receives 1 point.

Points are totalled as the season progresses, and determine your position in the Championship League Table.


Promotion

Finish the season among the top 5 players in the Championship League to secure you place in FACR's Premier League next season!

Should two or more players be eligable for promotion but finish the season on the same points, promotion is awarded to the player who achieved the highest World Ranking lap during any of the season's challenges.




Relegation

Finish the season among the bottom 5 players in the Championship League and you'll be relegated, starting next season in FACR's Academy League.

Should two or more players be facing relegation but finish the season on the same points, the player who achieved the lowest World Ranking lap during any of the season's challenges is relegated.


Staying Active

Failing to complete at least one clean lap during the season results in automatic placement into FACR's Sorting Room.  It pays to stay active!




The Premier League

Points

Using the same format as the Championship and Academy Leagues, each week points are awarded to all players who finish inside the Top 32.

1st place receives 32 points, 2nd place receives 31 points... and 32nd place receives 1 point.

Points are totalled as the season progresses, and determine you position in the Premier League Table.​


Hall of Fame

Finish the season among the Top 3 players in the Premier League to secure you place in FACR's Hall of Fame!​

Finding your way into FACR's Hall of Fame is no easy task!  Here is where you find the elite.  The best-of-the-best.  Get your name in here, and you truly are one of the fastest players in the world!

​Should two or more players be eligable for a place in FACR's Hall of Fame but finish the season on the same points, the player who achieved the highest World Ranking lap during any of the season's challenges is awarded the position!


Relegation

Finish the season among the bottom 5 players in the Premier League and you'll be relegated, starting next season in FACR's Championship League.

​Should two or more players be facing relegation but finish the season on the same points, the player who achieved the lowest World Ranking lap during any of the season's challenges is relegated.


Staying Active

Failing to complete at least one clean lap during the season results in automatic placement into FACR's Sorting Room.  It pays to stay active!




The Hardcore League


Choosing to participate in this league does not eliminate you from the main leagues, nor does it in any way influence your position or ability to score points in the main leagues.  This league is merely for those who choose to have that extra challenge!

To qualify for the Hardcore Leaderboard, you must have your in-game assists set up as follows: *

Suggested Line: Off
Braking: ABS Off
Steering: Normal or Simulation
Traction & Stability Control: Off
Friction Assist: Off
Shifting: Manual with Clutch
Damage: Fuel and Tyre wear: Simulation, Fuel & Tyres, or Cosmetic
Rewind: On or Off

* Setting a lap using these settings, and subsequently beating that lap after changing these settings (to a setup outside the required criteria) will result in your position being removed from the hardcore leaderboard.






OK. That's all you need to know!

So, from everyone here at FACR, good luck in Season 9!
