    This is a thread series for the seasonal time trials that focuses on completing the challenges (i.e. beating the gold target times) with stock versions of the cars. This means that instead of maximizing your PP with upgrades and focusing on getting the fastest laps on the in-game leaderboard, you are attempting to complete the challenges with the bare minimum amount of 'car' and money-spent as is possible.

    With the new more open ended format means that part of the challenge will be finding a stock car that has the lowest PP or lowest price depending on your view. It is also difficult to predict which types of tires a car will come with before purchasing.

    Warning: Some of these challenges are getting to be extreme and should be approached with caution! :banghead:


    In order to participate your car must be stock.

    1) A stock car is essentially any car as it is when purchased from the dealership or won as a prize: it will have had no modifications, added parts, or adjustments done that affect how the car performs.
    2) No oil changes are permitted: if you have had an oil change you must wait until the effects of the HP boost have been removed by driving over 300 km.
    3) You must use the original tire type that came with the car, unless dirt or snow tires are required.
    4) No changes to any “Car Settings” are permitted: they must ALL be left at their default values. [Note: cars that come with Fully Customizable Suspension that were purchased or won prior to patch 1.11 must have the suspension settings restored to default in order to be updated with the new stock suspension settings.]
    5) No SRF or ASM is permitted: other “Driver Assists” are permitted.


    Basically, the ONLY changes you may make to a car include: painting the car and changing a car’s racing number. Any other changes means your car is not stock.

    Beginner Non-Race Car Challenge: Autumn Ring Mini - 450 PP - SH
    Intermediate Non-Race Car Challenge: Apricot Hill - 550 PP - SM
    Expert Level Racing Car Challenge: Spa-Francorchamps - 700 PP - RH

    My results so far with a wheel and automatic transmission:

    450PP at Autumn Ring Mini:
    413PP
    - 0:34.190 - 3:17.593 - Ferrari 246GT '71 - SH - MR - 191hp - 1080kg - NSX '95 - 3:20.517

    I tried the low PP Alfa Romeo and R10 TDI but was not able to get the right lineup or I was just was not fast enough.

    This is fun too, but in a totally different way to the RUFs. You can drive it like a loon and it never bites back.

    - ??? - 3:34.181 - Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale '63 - CS - FR - 112hp - 950kg - Impreza Sedan WRX STi - 3:35.013

    It took a while to find a line-up I could beat and then another while to get a clean win. This one panned out very nicely.



    Did Spa in the 2J, which wasn't too hard. Tried a few lower PP but got nowhere near.

    Chap 2J

    2J makes life easy. Grip is outstanding. Little light in the brakes maybe.

    I tried the Audi R10 but I kept getting rammed for about 2 hours.:tdown::irked:

    I have no idea why the 787 doesn't show up nor why the 2J is attached in the little box at the bottom also. I tried to fix things but stopped caring after the fifth try.

    I know the feeling. Stay on the racing line and they use you as a brake, go defensive and they scoot round the outside like they're on rails.

    I've had the Attached Files box appear too. No idea how to get rid of it. What did the Mazda one say?

    Well done at Spa! A nail biter making sure to not get rattled and break traction as the C60 pressed you last lap mid way to the last chicane where he finally got his just reward. Nice focus.

    Not sure I can get much better, so I'll throw this out there.

    Edit: I got better. One in the pocket. :)
