    You could win a Xbox Kinect Bundle with a Xbox 360 Chrome Controller and an Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel, a Samsung 46” 3D TV and a Samsung Home Theatre System by taking part in a series of timed knockout rounds with the Forza 4 Tournament. To make sure you get pole position and become the ultimate champion, find out how to play:

    Before you start, make sure your Xbox LIVE profile is up to date as we’ll be contacting the winners of each stage.
    At each round, you need to sign in to your Xbox LIVE account, load Forza 4, go to the ‘Community’ section, go to ‘Rivals Mode’ and you will see the event for each round listed here. This is also where you will find out if you have passed through to the next round.
    Qualifying Round: To qualify for the contest, all players must post a track time in ‘Rival Mode’ on the specified circuit between June 22nd and July 5th. You can run as many laps as you wish and your fastest lap will be the one that counts to take you through to the Quarter Finals. You can follow the Top 10 lap times by visiting our Leaderboard.

    The Quarter Finals: You’ll be notified in-game if you have made it through to the Quarter Finals. To qualify for the Semi-Finals, all players must post a track time in ‘Rival Mode’ on the specified circuit between July 10th and July 17th. The fastest hundred will go through to the semi-finals and, as before, you can make as many attempts to improve your lap time. You can follow the Top 10 lap times by visiting our Leaderboard.

    The Semi Finals: You’ll be notified in-game if you have made it through to the Semi Finals. To qualify for the finals, the remaining 100 players must post a track time in ‘Rival Mode’ on the specified circuit between July 21st and July 24th. You can run as many laps as you can to get a better chance of being the fastest 24 players that will be selected through to the final. You can follow the Top 10 lap times by visiting our Leaderboard.

    The Final: The final takes place on the 31st July and the final 24 can run as many laps to log their fastest time in order to become the Official Xbox Summer Stadium Forza 4 Tournament Champion.

    Let's hope they do a better job than some recent rivals modes where you need a glitch car (Le mans) or a Unicorn (the Honda gtr) to be competitive ....... No way I'll be getting in the top 100s but it'll be fun. Good luck to RDDCs fast guys, hope you do well boys.

    Yeah,I'm not expecting to get even into the Top 100.
    But I'll give it my best shot anyway. Just to be a proud representative of RDDC.

    I think, if I knew how to use the clutch, I could do a 2:04ish, but I can't, so in the 2:06es

    Well you don't have to clock that time Bradley as you only need to be in the top 40% to proceed to the quarterfinals so no stress yet. :)

    Go to the storefront. Enter search criteria and there are a few to choose from. Check LB to see which cars are optimal ......... I used Lancia G37, Vauxhall 220 ......... Weapon of choice seems to be lotus '05. Hope that helps ...... I got into 2:09 ish and that was top 17% ... Good enough .....;)

    i used the lotus and did a standard upgrade through the game.
    Only corrected tire-pressure and a bit of downforce.
    That allowed me to get a 2.11 and get me into the top 27%. without further tweaking or testing. So job done. :)

    So a 2:11 is inside the top 30%?

    And you only need to be in the top 40% to qualify?

    Are there any online leaderboards like in the GT Academy?

    If you go in to the Rivals area and choose the option to change your rival you can view the whole leader board.

    That should be ok. I'm in the top 9% with a 2:06.x and I was in the top 13% when I was on a 2:08.

    hmmm, think my 2:07 must've been 'dirty'... lol ;)

    I'm showing on the online leaderboads as 0:02:10.186 which puts me in 6229th position.
    Inside top 21% though, I think, so not too bad.
    But there is the nagging feeling that I know I can do much, much better!

    Does it end tonight or is it already over?
