    There’s a technical issue that may prevent people joining off of my Gamertag.

    If you’re not in the room shoot me an Xbox message and I’ll send an invite.

    That was some great racing! I didn't get any podium spots, but I still had some great battles along the way and very nearly got 3rd when we were on the Bernese Alps. I hope I wasn't too much of a moving hazard, and I'm really looking forward to the next session either way. I'll try and get my headset set up for next session as well.

    When will we know what the next division is, and do you think it would be worth advertising this outside of GTPlanet? For instance you could probably put the thread on /r/Forza and we'd get a few extra signups - more people might be a little more messy and complicated to set up but it should also make for better racing because there'll be more people within each different skill level.

    I agree, that was fun :)

    Many thanks to everybody for stopping by, we did just under 2 hours of racing and it was pretty close and clean.

    I’ll come up with 3 Divisions of varying classes for us to vote on over the coming days.

    For now let’s stick to GTP. I may share this on Reddit at the end of the week once we have settled on a Division. If I share it anywhere else the best way to manage it is via Xbox’s Looking for Group feature and Party Chat.

    Just realized we were using party chat where I believe my headset works fine, rather than game chat where my headset refuses to work for some reason... :banghead: I'd appreciate if someone would join a party chat with me sometime in the coming week so I can definitely make sure it works before next week.

    I had a blast last night racing with everyone. I really rather liked the setup: the races were all a decent length, the tracks & weather were varied, and best of all, game issues were kept to a minimum regardless of our physical distance from each other.

    Here's hoping that Forza implements the ability for rolling starts and a countdown timer in the future. Thanks again for hosting, @PJTierney.

    Looking forward to next week.

    Yeah, it ran with minimal issues which was good. I think Party Chat is the way to go, easier to do mass-invites that way.

    Poll is close now :)

    I'd love to join in on this sometime but will have to wait for at least another 2 weeks until I get XBL Gold renewed.

    I‘ll close up the poll tomorrow so if anyone hasn’t voted try and get to it soon :)

    For future events the poll options will try to stick to a similar trend of varying PI levels.

    Just realised I probably can't make tomorrow unless it goes on for a long time. The annual Christmas meal for one of the uni societies I'm in is on at Monday evening so chances are I won't be able to make it unless I leave early.

    No worries, so long as we get a bunch of people together we’ll race anyway :)

    Showroom Rally won the poll by the way, and I’ll make the LFG tomorrow.

    PJTeirney, do you have a group associated with this event? I can't make it tomorrow, but I should be able to make next weeks.

    I don’t have a specific Club for this. I’d suggest the GTPlanet club but @SlipZtrEm has it set to Invite Only.

    No worries :)

    I don’t know how many upcoming ones I’d be available for either (Leagues and GT Sport taking up a lot of my time) but I’ll certainly be hosting tonight.

    If anyone wants to try hosting next week let me know and I’ll help out where I can.

    At the start time I’ll be in the game, join my party or send me a message and I’ll send an invite.
