Forza 6 gamers are being given the opportunity to win a brand new Ford Mustang GT. All they have to do is take part in the Race for the Record Rivals event on Forza Motorsport 6. The contest is entirely skill-based and it seeks to look for the fastest driver as determined first by leaderboard scores, and a head-to-head championship challenge for the finalists.

Entering the contest is pretty easy, provided that you have all the required hardware and software needed to play the game. Obviously, an Xbox One console is required, as is the actual Forza Motorsport 6 game. Most importantly, interested participants must have a valid Xbox Live account and gamertag. Standard geographical rules also apply.

If anybody meets all these requirements, they can enter the contest by logging in to the game using their valid Xbox Live account and gamertag. Once that’s done, they’re required to go to the “Rivals” section that can be found from the “Go Race” menu. From there, they can go to the “Monthly” channel of Rivals mode and look for the specific mode event. Then they must complete a full lap in the game of the Watkins Glen Short track using a 2016 Ford Shelby GT350R. Contestants are encouraged to play the lap as many times as necessary to set their fastest lap time, which would be considered their official Contest Entry. The Preliminary round is already underway and will end on November 15, 2015 at 11:59 p.m PT.

The 12 fastest lap times will be named preliminary winners and all 12 will compete in the Final Round, which will take place “on or around” December 12, 2015 in Los Angeles. Unlike the preliminary round, the final round will be follow a head-to-head format until an overall winner is determined. The winner then goes home with a 2016 Ford Mustang GT that’s valued at $35,000.

This is the kind of competition that’s not only easy to play, but is also fun to take part of. First, you don’t need anything other than an Xbox One, a Forza 6 game, and a valid Xbox Live account and gamertag. That’s it.

Second, if you start as early as now, you still have around three weeks to post your fastest lap time. I don’t know about you, but if I’m serious about winning that Mustang GT, I’m spending all of my free time trying to post a lap that I’m comfortable in submitting to the contest.

Being a part of the 12 finalists already has some pretty sweet perks, including a round-trip ticket to Los Angeles to compete in the Final Round. Microsoft’s also setting up the finalists to a two-night stay in a hotel and a travel allowance of $250, paid through a Visa check card. Not too bad.

I do urge all interested participants to read through the terms and conditions of the Race for the Record competition before signing up. There are some interesting guidelines there to take note of. As soon as you’re done perusing through the guidelines, you can immediately start up your Xbox One, insert the Forza 6 game, log in to your account, and go set that fastest lap time around Watkins Glen with a 2016 Ford Shelby GT350R.

Who knows, you might end up even make it to this website in the event that you win Forza 6’s Race for the Record competition.
