It’s been nearly two weeks since the release of Turn 10’s Forza 4, which our own resident Petrolehead Nick called “quite simply the best, most enjoyable driving game available this generation.” Two weeks means you should’ve had plenty of practice by now – and it’s time to put those skills to the test. BTGames, in conjunction with Microsoft, is hosting a nearly month-long Forza 4 tournament, giving those with the fastest lap times the opportunity to win some pretty sweet prizes.
Here’s how it all works.
Round 1 – Time Trials
Get to your nearest participating BT Games store for a first round of time trials. Give us your best lap time by playing the game in-store. The race, car and track will be pre-determined to keep things fair. Participants will be competing nationally with BT Games stores around the country. Results will be recorded between 01 – 25 November 2011. The Daily Leader Boards will be updated on the BT Games website from tomorrow. Only the Top 20 lap times will make it through to Round 2.
Round 2 – Semi-Finals
If you make it to Round 2, you’ll be asked to return to the store to compete against 19 other racers on a new track with a new car. You need to make sure that your lap time is recorded between 09:00am and 11:00am for it to be valid. Then, it’s on to Round 3.
Round 3 – The Final!
Only 10 finalists will take part in the race-decider one last time on 26 November at 11:30am. There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
Should you manage to make the top 10, you stand the chance of winning :
- 3rd Place Prize – A copy of Forza Motorsport 4, a Limited Edition Silver Controller with Play&Charge Kit and a R1000 BT Games voucher, valued at R2200.
- 2nd Place Prize – A copy of Forza Motorsport 4, Gears of War 3, a Limited Edition Silver Controller with Play&Charge Kit and R2000 BT Games voucher, valued at R3800.
- 1st Place Prize – Valued at R8000, the ultimate winner will walk away with a 250GB console with a copy of Forza Motorsport 4 and a R5000 BT Games voucher.

As is the norm, competitions of this nature are subject to an array of terms and conditions, which you’ll be able to find here. One day. Maybe.
