Hey @Populuxe Cowboy you do know that the Drag Strip is accessible in Rivals?
This week, we're taking a different path. I've gone and set up a custom time trial. @SLP950 and @xXPeacockXx can share it. You could also add me at RMedia Obelisk on XBL and get it there.
Let's get last week's TT out of the way!
Congrats, @Vic Reign93! Win hog.

I decided to give myself the choice of car this week so I could test something.
So, it's the...

1967 Lola T70 MKIIIB!
Yes. I picked a Forzathon car. Why?
I realized I could make basic point to point tracks with the stock car and let other people try it.
So this week's time trial is a custom course that's here:

There's also a 4-way intersection where we turn left with a banana plantation on the inside of the corner. I made sure to stay outside of the fence around their property.
I agree the inclusion of a pure race car in Horizon is odd, but I look at it as a preview of where FM7 is going to go. Just like FM6 went heavy with F1 cars from 1966/7 and open cockpit sports racers from approx 1970, it's looking like FM7 will go heavy with Le Mans prototypes from the late '60s/early '70s.Ultimately though it looks like the kind of car that is ready to be put on-disc for Forza Motorsport 7 and was completed/licensed early enough for us to be fortunate to get it in Forza Horizon 3. It's not really built for Horizon, which makes its debut here rather odd.
I'm just considerate like that.My aren't you considerate! I'm sure those banana farmers are glad you didn't tear up their fence!
I think I can answer that, At the T junction in the rainforest if you carry on and take the next left, you'll find that the distance to the finish is not much more AND you still retain your higher speeds.
You follow it until you get to the dirt road with the speed camera on it and turn left on to it, follow it to the end, a quick left-right combo and then round the corner to the finish line.
Now, it's technically not cutting across country as it's still on marked roads on the map, but it does stray from the route originally set out.
Here's my run which was shows the route in more detail, I can only assume that was the route taken as on the normal route my best was a mid 2:09.
If you concluded that route is invalid, take my time of the board as well.
Oh we were supposed to stick to the road? My bad.
Didn't see any rules stating that so I went for lap time
Remove my time if you like, I don't mind. Probably won't be doing another run as I've got some things to work on today.
