    ***** INTRODUCTION *****
    
    You can complete the 90 events in Forza 2 with the purchase of only 
    twelve or thirteen cars, depending on your choice of home region.   
    The cars you win from racing are enough to complete 76 events. That 
    leaves 14 events that require other cars.  You have to buy a car to 
    start the game and, if you make an informed decision to buy 
    something that you will have to buy later anyway, you have to 
    acquire other cars for only thirteen more events.  You actually need 
    only 12 more cars because one car can be used for two of the 
    remaining events. If you are based in North America, you need to buy 
    only more 11 cars because one of your level cars can be used in 
    place of a bought one.  
    
    You cannot race through 76 events with cars that you have won before 
    buying a second car though.  Sometimes you have to buy a car to race 
    in one event in order to win something that you can race in another 
    event.  However, you can complete over 60% of the game and, 
    depending on the difficulty settings you use, you can be somewhere 
    driver levels 40 and 50 and have five to ten million credits before 
    you have to buy a second car. 
     
    Regardless of your home region, by the time you need to buy a second 
    car, most of the vehicles in the game will be available to you, you 
    will have accumulated discounts on many models, and you will have 
    plenty of credits to buy anything you need, if you don't use hired 
    drivers to much.  It takes less than 2 million credits to get the 
    cars your need to complete the remaining races and you win it all 
    back.  You should never be short of cash because Forza 2 is very 
    generous with prize money and you don't need much of it early in the 
    game. You should not have to repeat easy, low paying events to get 
    enough funds to carry on.
    
    Many faq writers for racing games will tell you which specific cars 
    to run in which events but that doesn't hold water for most Forza 2 
    events because you often have a choice of several eligible, 
    competitive cars that you have won.  Your choice of which car to 
    race often can be a matter of personal preference.  I ran the 
    Porsche 914 in nine events because it looks exactly like one I used 
    to own but very few other people will run it in more than the couple 
    of events where it is required because there are better cars 
    available for the other events.  I also ran Camaros in every event 
    that I could and never a Mustang because I have been driving Camaros 
    on the street for many years.  You may want to drive something that 
    matches your street vehicle (or your desired street vehicle) in some 
    events if it is available.
    
    You often will have multiple cars eligible for an event and many of 
    those cars can be used without spending money on upgrades, although 
    some tuning of the handling may be needed.  I have played completely 
    through Forza 2 twice (all while waiting for Gran Turismo 5 to come 
    out!).  I chose Europe for my home region the first time and North 
    America the second time.  The opportunities to run so many different 
    cars in many events often resulted in me choosing different cars the 
    second time through the game.
    
    
    ***** FORZA 2 EVENT GROUPS AND ABBREVIATIONS *****
    
    Forza 2 events are divided into the nine groups shown below.  The 
    abbreviations shown are used through the remainder of this faq to 
    identify event groups.  Events in earlier groups generally are 
    easier than those in later groups and events earlier within a group 
    generally are easier than those later in the group.
    
    Proving Ground (PG)
    Amateur (Am)
    Manufacturer Clubs (Mfg)
    Semi-Pro (SP)
    Rivalry Face-Offs (Riv)
    Regional Championships (Reg)
    Factory-Spec (Fac)
    Professional (Pro)
    Endurance (End)
    
    
    ***** MISCELLANEOUS TIPS *****
    
    Before we get into the specific cars that are available, eligible, 
    and competitive for specific events, here are some useful 
    generalities:
    
    
    ***QUICK IDENTIFICATION OF ELIGIBLE CARS***
    
    The lists of cars that I provide that are eligible for the various 
    events generally will include some that you have not yet won when 
    you are thinking about entering an event.  If you want to see what 
    cars you currently own are a eligible for an event, try to enter the 
    event with a car that is not eligible.  The game will automatically 
    take you to the car selection screen and show you only the cars that 
    are eligible for the event.
    
    
    ***KEEP TO THE RIGHT***
    
    Anytime you have your pick of multiple cars, remember when you are 
    on the car selection screen that Forza 2 arranges the cars according 
    to increasing performance from left to right, unless you have 
    designated them as favorites.  Having cars arranged according to 
    performance helps you identify the best ones to race in each class.  
    However, your designated favorites will always be to the left of the 
    other cars and will be arranged in the order in which you last used 
    them.  You will have to either look at the car specs and ratings in 
    the upper right corner of the screen to compare your favorites with 
    non-favorites or undesignate them.
    
    
    ***SPEED vs. CLASS***
    
    R class cars are eligible to run against production cars in many 
    Proving Ground, Amateur, Manufacturer Clubs, Rivalry Face-Offs, and 
    Regional Championship events and most of the time an R class car is 
    the hot setup.  However, R class cars are not necessarily faster 
    than non-R class cars.  S and U cars sometimes are faster than R4 
    and R3 cars, particularly if they have had power upgrades.  S and U 
    cars generally do not handle as well R class cars but their handling 
    can be upgraded enough to sometimes give them better lap times than 
    R4 and R3 cars.  
    
    
    ***RWD vs FWD and AWD***   
    
    Being aware of the Forza 2 game designers prejudices can help you 
    pick out better handling cars.  They appear to believe that rear 
    wheel drive (RWD) cars have to handle badly and that front wheel 
    drive (FWD) and all wheel drive (AWD) cars always handle well.  RWD 
    cars in Forza 2, even some with mid-engines, are prone excessive 
    oversteer and FWD cars never understeer, neither of which is true in 
    the real world.  
    
    If you want to see how far you can go with a RWD car though, add air 
    to the front tires, stiffen the front sway bar, lower the ride 
    height, and stiffen the springs.  You may or may not have to buy 
    upgrades to do these things, depending on how well the car handles 
    initially and whether it is completely stock or a tuner special.  
    You can make big improvements to RWD car handling but getting just 
    the right balance between turning ability and stability is a very 
    delicate matter and you can never get the car to handle overall as 
    well as a FWD or AWD car in this game.  You will always be able to 
    get on the gas sooner coming out a corner in Forza 2 if the car is 
    FWD or AWD rather than RWD.  If you set up a RWD car so you can get 
    on the gas pedal early exiting a corner, than you probably have the 
    front end so tight that it won't go around the corner at a 
    competitive speed.  
    
    
    ***CARS FOR FACTORY SPEC EVENTS***
    
    You win two cars that are required for Factory Spec events(the 
    Porsche 914/6 for the Fac 1 event and the Mazdaspeed Roadster 2001 
    for the Fac 3 event).  Cars raced in Factory Spec events cannot be 
    upgraded in any way for those events.  Sometimes you may want to 
    upgrade one of these cars so it will be competitive in a different 
    event.  Just remember, if the car will be needed for a Factory Spec 
    event, race it in that event before you upgrade it.  Otherwise, you 
    will have to remove the upgrades before you can do the Factory Spec 
    event and that does not always work.  Once when I upgraded a car for 
    some other event and then removed the upgrades to race it in a 
    Factory Spec event, a bug in the game kept me from getting the PI 
    points back down to the original level so I could not use it in the 
    Factory Spec event.  I had to buy a separate car for the event even 
    though I had already won the eligible model. Unlike Gran Turismo, 
    you cannot win a car a second time by repeating an event in Forza 2.
    
    
    *** MOST EVENTS WITH A SINGLE CAR***
    
    Here is something that will add interested to the game for some 
    people, especially if you have already played through the game at 
    least once.  If you want to run the most events that you can with 
    one car regardless of what other cars are available, start the game 
    with a Volkswagen Golf GTi 2006.  With incremental upgrades, the car 
    can win 20 events at the medium difficulty level and four more if 
    you reduce the difficulty to easy.  It can be upgraded to over 400 
    HP and all the way into S class.  However, it does not compete well 
    in A and S classes even with upgrades.  The Volkswagen Golf GTi 2006 
    can win the following events at the medium difficulty level, with 
    appropriate upgrades for each event:
    PG 3. European Open
    PG 4. FWD
    PG 7. Hot Hatch
    Am 1. Inline 4
    Am 2. Boosted
    Mfg 1: Volkswagen
    SP 1: Goodyear 150 HP
    SP 2: Sparco 200 HP
    SP 3: Kumho Tire 250 HP
    SP 4: Castrol 300 HP
    SP 5: Nissan 350 HP
    SP 6: Stoptech 400 HP
    Riv 1: Young Guns
    Reg 2: Deutsch C-Class
    Pro 1: Class D World
    Pro 2: Class C World
    Pro 3: Class B World
    End 1: Tsukuba Class D
    End 2: Class C Laguna Seca
    End 3: Maple Valley B-Class
    	
    The Volkswagen Golf GTi 2006 also can win the these events if the 
    difficulty level is set to easy:
    Pro 4: Class A World
    Pro 5: Class S World
    End 4: Silverstone Class A
    End 5: Mugello Supercar
    
    
    ***** STARTING CARS *****
    
    The cars listed below are available for purchasing to start the 
    game, at the prices shown.  If your home region is Europe or North 
    America, you can avoid purchasing an extra car later by starting the 
    game with one that you will have to acquire later for a race that 
    you do not win an eligible car for.  You eventually will need a 
    Volkswagen for the Mfg 1 event and a Ford Focus SVT 2003 for the Fac 
    2 event.  Any of the three VWs available in Europe at the start are 
    eligible for Mfg 1.  You would do best to pick one of the faster 
    ones.  I bought the Golf GTi 2006 the first time I played, when I 
    was based in Europe because it was the best car available (not even 
    knowing that I would need it later for a specific event) and got off 
    to a good start.  Being better informed the second time I played, I 
    bought the Ford Focus when I was based in North America so I could 
    use it in a Factory Spec race, even though it was well down the list 
    for performance compared to other available cars.  I just had to 
    upgrade it more as I went along and did not use it in as many events 
    as the Golf.  Just be sure to run the Fac 2 event before you modify 
    the Focus.

    ***** WHERE TO GET THE CAR YOU NEED FOR EACH EVENT *****
    
    This section tells you which cars you win are eligible and 
    competitive for which races and which cars I drove, which were 
    intentionally not always the best.  Sometimes the car may require 
    upgrades to be competitive.  
    
    
    ***PROVING GROUNDS***
    
    PG 1. North American Open.  You win the Acura VIS Racing Integra 
    Type-R C-507 from Am 1 Inline 4 which is eligible and competitive in 
    this event.  Integra is considered to be a North American brand 
    because Honda only uses the name in North America.  I used this car 
    the first time I played through the game, when I was based in 
    Europe. Alternatively, you can use your starting car if North 
    America is you home region.  The best overall available North 
    American starting car is the Chevrolet Cobalt SS Coupe 2005 D-374.  
    However, you eventually will have to buy a Ford Focus SVT 2003 D-263 
    $9,500 for the Fac 2:  Ford Focus event.  You can avoid buying an 
    extra car by getting one of these to start the game.  I did this the 
    second time I played the game, when I was based in North America.  
    
    PG 2. Asian Open.  I recommend the Honda Wings West Civic Si - D-384 
    from PG 5 AWD because of its FWD handling.  Alternatively, you can 
    use your starting car if Asia is you home region. The fastest 
    available Asian starting car is the Toyota Supra 2.0 GT Twin Turbo 
    1992.  However, you may want to run an FWD car for better handling.  
    The best FWD Asian starting car is the Honda CR-X SiR 1991.  Its PI 
    rating is only fifth of the seven available Asian starting cars but 
    it is easier to add horsepower to a slow car than to make a RWD car 
    handle well in Forza 2.  If Asia is not you home region, you win the 
    cars listed below that are eligible for this event. Any of them can 
    win the event, although the Mazda, which I used, will need a lot of 
    upgrading. 
    Toyota Do-Luck Supra - B-644 from Amateur 2 Boosted 
    Honda Do-Luck NSX - B-604 from PG 9 Flyweight
    Toyota Border MR2 Turbo T-bar - C-497 from PG 8 Mid-engine
    Honda Wings West Civic Si - D-384 from PG 5 AWD
    Mazda Mazdaspeed Roadster - D-296 from PG 4 FWD
    
    PG 3. European Open.  Use your starting car if Europe is you home 
    region.  The best overall starting car for Europe is the Volkswagen 
    Golf GTi 2006.  That is really handy because you eventually will 
    have to buy a Volkswagen for the Mfg 1: VW Club event.  You can 
    avoid buying an extra car by getting one of these to start the game.  
    The You quickly win some good European cars regardless of your 
    region though. The Lancia Delta Integrale EVO - C-460 from PG 6 RWD 
    and the Renault Sport Clio V6 RS - C-439 from PG 8 Hot Hatch are 
    eligible and competitive in this event.  The Lancia is the much 
    better handling of the two.  I used VW Golf the first time I played 
    through the game and the Lancia the second time.
    
    PG 4. FWD.  Your starting car may be eligible and competitive here.  
    If not, you win several good FWD cars early in the game.  I raced my 
    starting cars both times I played through the game, VW Golf the 
    first time and Focus SVT the second time.  FWD cars you win are:
    Acura VIS Racing Integra Type-R C-507 from Am 1 Inline 4
    Ford FocusSport SVT Focus 2003 A 736 from Fac 2:  Ford Focus	
    Honda Mugen Civic Type-R 2004 C 514 from Riv 1: Young Guns	
    Honda Mugen Integra Type-R 2002 C 506 from Mfg 2: Integra	
    Honda Wings West Civic Si - D-384 from PG 5 AWD
    Toyota APR Celica GTS 2003 C 525 from Riv 2: Sport Compact
    
    PG 5. AWD. The Lancia Delta Integrale EVO - C-460 from PG 6 RWD is 
    the first AWD car you win. It handles very well and can easily win 
    this event, so there is no need to wait for something faster, 
    although you do win some much faster AWD cars.  I raced the Subaru 
    Tommy Kaira Impreza M20b the first time and the Lancia the second 
    time.  Other suitable AWD cars you win are:
    Mitsubishi Sparco Lancer Evo. VIII A-797 from SP 2: Sparco 200HP 
    Nissan Tommy Kaira Skyline GT-R R34 B-665 from Am 3: 6 Cylinder
    Subaru Tommy Kaira Impreza M20b B-642 from SP 1: Under 150 HP
    Peugeot 207 Super 2000 B-629 from SP 4: 300HP 
    
    PG 6. RWD.  You win 72 RWD cars, including front, mid-, and rear 
    engine models. In addition, most of the level rewards cars are RWD. 
    Level rewards cars are listed at the end of this faq.  Competitive 
    RWD cars that you will have in your stable early in the game include 
    those listed below.  You will have to work on the handling of any of 
    them.  I raced the Camaro Z28 1969 - D 383 both times because I had 
    it very early in the game and I like the car. There are better 
    choices on the list though.
    Toyota Do-Luck Supra B-644 from Am 2: Boosted
    Shelby GT500 B-642 from PG 10 Heavy Weight
    Honda Mugen S2000 B-554 from Am 5. Free Breathing
    Toyota Border MR2 Turbo T-bar C-497 from PG 8: Mid-engine 
    Renault Sport Clio V6 RS C-439 from PG 7: Hot Hatch
    Porsche 911 Carrera RS C-429 from Am 4: Sports Car Classic
    Camaro Z28 1969  D-383 from PG 1 North American 
    
    PG 7. Hot Hatch.  You win several cars early in the game that work 
    here.  I raced my starting VW Golf the first time and the Lancia 
    Delta Integrale EVO the second time, although the Acura VIS Racing 
    Integra Type-R is faster than either of them and is the better car 
    if the others have not been upgraded.
    Acura VIS Racing Integra Type-R - C-507 from Amateur 1 Inline 4.  
    Lancia Delta Integrale EVO - C-460 from PG 6 RWD
    Honda Wings West Civic Si - D-384 from PG 5 AWD
    
    PG 8. Mid-Engine and PG 9. Flyweight.  The Porsche 914/6 - D-196 
    from PG 3 European Open will work in either of these events if you 
    do a lot of upgrades and tune the handling.  Otherwise, you 
    eventually have to buy a Lotus Exige for the Factory Spec 4 event 
    and most people probably would prefer the Lotus.  If you decide to 
    upgrade the Porsche 914, wait until after you have used it in 
    Factory Spec 1 so you don't have to remove the upgrades to make it 
    eligible for that event.  Or, if you are willing to wait until later 
    in the game to complete these events, you eventually win some 
    seriously fast cars that come in under the Flyweight weight limit 
    and most of these are mid-engine, except for the two Panoz cars.  
    You can easily wipe out the field in any of the cars you win later.  
    I used the Porsche 914 in the mid-engine event the first time and in 
    both events the second time.  I used the Bentley in the Flyweight 
    the first time.  You can get the Bentley pretty early in the game 
    and it will easily win both events.  Other mid-engine and 
    lightweight cars you win are:
    Audi #2 FSI Champion Racing R8 R1 from SP 10. K&N Filters 700HP 
    Audi #4 Johansson Motorsport R8 R1 from Pro 8: GT Legends
    Bentley #7 Team Bentley Speed 8 R1 from End 4: Silverstone Class A 
    BMW Motorsport #15 V12 LMR from Pro 10: Class R1 World
    Ferrari #12 Risi Competizione F333 SP R1 from Pro 9: Class R2 World
    Ferrari 330 P4 S-868 from Mfg 8: Club della Suceria Ferrari
    Lotus Exige Cup 240 B-700 from Fac 4: Lotus Sport Exige
    Panoz #11 JML Team Panoz LMP-01 2003 R1 from Reg 9:  North American
    Panoz #81 Team LNT Panoz Esperante 2006 R3 from SP 8. Panoz 500HP 
    Peugeot #3 Peugeot Talbot Sport 905 EVO 1 C R1 From End 10: Sebring
    You also get the Cadillac #6 Team Cadillac NorthStar LMP-02 R1 when 
    you reach North American Level 50, Audi #1 Infineon Audi R8 R1 when 
    you reach European Level 50, or the Toyota #3 Toyota Motorsports GT-
    ONE TS020 when you reach Asian Level 50.
    	
    PG 10: Heavy Weight.  The car must weigh at least 3850 pounds. You 
    will have to buy a car for this event.  There are only 9 cars over 
    3850 pounds in the game but you are not really limited to them 
    because you can start with something a little lighter and add bigger 
    wheels and body pieces to bring up the weight.  The Ferrari 612 
    Scaglietti 2005, 158,000 cr., is the fastest car that starts out 
    above the weight minimum and you will have to race against one so 
    you had better not have anything slower.  I raced the Scaglietti the 
    first time I played. On the other hand, the second time I played 
    through the game, I chose the Mistsubishi GTO, 24,000 cr., and added 
    weight.  Even with a lot of upgrades it came out much cheaper than 
    the Scaglietti and, because of the Forza 2 prejudice against having 
    RWD cars handle well, I had superior handling in the AWD GTO.  
    
    
    ***AMATEUR CUP*** 
    
    Am 1. Inline 4.  So many choices!  The majority of the cars you win 
    in Proving Ground events are inline 4s and you probably chose an 
    inline 4 to start the game.  Take your pick but remember when you 
    are on the car selection screen that Forza arranges to cars 
    according to increasing performance from left to right.  The inline 
    4 that is furtherest to the right will be the fastest you have when 
    you are looking, although maybe not the best handling.  I raced my 
    starting cars both times I played through the game, VW Golf the 
    first time and Focus SVT the second time, both with upgrades.
    
    Am 2. Boosted.  Run whatever you feel like driving.  It does not 
    even have to be boosted.  Again, I raced my starting cars with 
    upgrades both times I played through the game, VW Golf the first 
    time and Focus SVT the second time.
    
    Am 3. 6-Cylinder.  You win the Porsche 914/6 - D-196 from PG 3 
    European and the Renault Sport Clio V6 RS - C-439 in PG 8 Hot Hatch 
    early in the game.  The Renault is a lot faster unless you have 
    upgraded the Porsche for other events.  Either one needs work on its 
    handling.  I used the Porsche 914 both times.  You win a lot of 
    better cars though if you want to wait, a lot of Porsche 911s, 
    Nissan Skylines, Toyota Supras, etc., too many to list them all.  If 
    you are not in a hurry to complete this event, you can wait until 
    later in the game and pick something else from further right in the 
    selection screen.
    
    Am 4. Sports Car.  This car has to be pre-1975 and cannot be a 
    muscle car.  That leaves you with the Porsche 914/6 from PG 3 
    European if you want to get this event out of the way early in the 
    game.  The 914 with major upgrades will do the job.  Otherwise, you 
    can wait until later in the game for the Ferrari 330 P4 S-868 from 
    Mfg 8: Club della Suceria Ferrari, which is a much faster car.  I 
    used the Porsche 914 with upgrades both times.
    
    Am 5. American Iron.  Must be a pre-1975 muscle car.  The Chevrolet 
    Camaro Z28 1969 D-383 from PG 1: North American is the first thing 
    you win that qualifies.  It will work with adequate upgrades, 
    including a stiffened front sway bar.  I used the Camaro Z28 1969 
    both times I played.  If you are based in North America, you also 
    can choose from the cars listed below, from levels 5, 10, and 15,  
    However, the Camaro Z28 has a higher PI rating:
    Shelby Mustang GT-500KR 1968 D-333
    Dodge Charger R/T-SE 1969 D-333
    Chevrolet Chevelle SS-454 1970 D-353
    If you have Forza 2 Platinum or downloaded the appropriate expansion 
    pack, you also have a Dodge Challenger R/T Hemi 1970.
    
    Am 6. Free Breathing.  There are way too many cars to bother 
    listing.  Just pick something from the far right of the selection 
    screen and upgrade it if you need to.  I used the Viper #23 the 
    first time I played and the Camaro Z28 1969 the second time.  There 
    are a lot of better cars than the Camaro available.
    
    Am 7. Big Block.  Again, there are way too many cars to bother 
    listing, both North American and European.  Just pick something from 
    the far right of the selection screen and upgrade it if you need to.  
    I used the Guldstrand Corvette the first time and the Camaro Z28 the 
    second time.  Again, there are a lot of better cars than the Camaro 
    Z28 available.
    
    Am 8. Five by Five.   This event requires a ten cylinder engine. You 
    win several Vipers and the Peugeot #3 Talbot Sport 905 EVO 1 C R1 
    that can be raced here.  See list below.  You can have a good race 
    with any of the Vipers or blow away the field with the Peugeot.  If 
    you are based in North American, you also get the 1999 Dodge Viper 
    GTS ACR A-774 when you reach Level 30.  Your top competitor is rated 
    S-914.  I used the Hennessey Viper the first time and upgraded the 
    GTS ACR Viper the second time.  Any of the R class cars would have 
    been better.
    Dodge #23 Magellan Viper Comp. Coupe 2003 R4 from SP 6: 400HP
    Dodge #57 Carsport Viper GTS-R 2000 R3 from End 6: Road Atlanta
    Dodge #58 Larbre Viper GTS-R 2001 R3 from Riv 9: Corvette vs Viper
    Dodge Hennessey Viper 800TT 2000 S-953 from Mfg 9: Viper Performance 
    Peugeot #3 Peugeot Talbot 905 EVO R1 from End 10: Sebring 50 R1
    (You also win Dodge #22 3R-Racing Viper Competition Coupe 2004 R4 in 
    this event.)
    
    Am 9: Extreme Performance.   This event requires a very fast car 
    with a twelve cylinder engine. Your top competition is rated S-954.  
    You win the twelve cylinder cars listed below.  I drove the Maserati 
    #15 the first time.  By the second time I did this event, I had the 
    Forza Platinum Murcielago LP 640 that I bought for the Mfg 10 event, 
    so I used it.   
    BMW Motorsport #15 V12 LMR 1999 R1 from Pro 10: Class R1 World
    McLaren #43 Team McLaren F1 GTR 1997 R2 from Fac 10: McLaren F1 
    Maserati #35 Risi Competizione MC12 2005 R2 from SP 9. 600HP 
    Maserati #9 Vitaphone MC12 2005 R2 from Pro 7: Class R3 World
    Maserati #15 JMB Racing MC12 2005 R2 from End 5: Mugello Supercar
    Pagani #17 Zonda GR 2003 R2 from Riv 10: Ferrari V12 vs Lambo 
    TVR Cerbera Speed 12 1998 U-999 from Fac 6: TVR Tuscan S 
    Maserati MC12 2004 S-954 from Reg 7:  Italian Masters
    Ferrari 330 P4 1967 S-868 from Mfg 8: Club della Suceria Ferrari
    Ferrari #12 Risi Competizione F333 SP 1998 R1 from Pro 9: Class R2 
    Lamborghini Diablo GTR 1999 S-869 from Mg 10: Furioso
    (You win the Chrysler ME Four-Twelve Concept 2005 U-999 in this 
    event.)
    
    Am 10: 20th Century Supercar.  This event requires that the car must 
    be built before 2000 and be very fast.  You win the S and U class, 
    pre-2000 cars listed below.  The TVR Cerbera Speed 12 1998 is the 
    fastest.  I used the Ferrari 330 P4 1967 868 the first time and the 
    Lamborghini Diablo GTR 1999 the second time.  The old Ferrari was 
    not a good choice.  It needed a lot of upgrading but I did not know 
    at the time that I would win much better cars later.
    TVR Cerbera Speed 12 1998 U-999 from Fac 6: TVR Tuscan S
    Toyota Top Secret 0-300 Supra 1998 S-960 from Pro 3:  World Class B 
    Toyota VeilSide Supra Fortune 03 1998 S-901 from Reg 3:  Jap Class B

    Nissan R390 1998 S-872 from SP 5: Nissan 350HP
    Ferrari 330 P4 1967 S-868 from Mfg 8: Club della Suceria Ferrari
    
    
    ***MANUFACTURER CLUBS*** 
    
    Mfg 1: Volkswagen.  You have to buy a VW for this event.  This can 
    be your game starting car if you are based in Europe, as it was mine 
    the first time I played.  You need something fast enough to outrun a 
    C-455 rated competitor, so you may have to upgrade if you use a game 
    starting car.
    
    Mfg 2: Integra.  No choice here.  You win the Acura VIS Racing 
    Integra Type-R - C-507 from Amateur 1 Inline 4.  You can't even buy 
    a different Acura Integra.
    
    Mfg 3: MR2 Cup.  You have your choice of the Toyota Border MR2 Turbo 
    T-bar from PG 8: Mid-engine 5 564 or Toyota VIS  MR2 GT Turbo T-bar 
    C-448 from Mfg 3: MR2 10.  I drove the VIS MR2 GT Turbo T-bar both 
    times even though the Border is faster.
    
    Mfg 4: Quattro.  The Audi #8 Audi ABT TT-R R3 from Pro 2: Class C 
    World 20  537 is your only car for this event.
    
    Mfg 5: Nissan.  You can run any Nissan but you will be competing 
    against cars up to S-864 so you need to be fast.  I drove the Nissan 
    Skyline GT-R Mines 2002 both times. Competitive cars you win are:
    Nissan #12 Calsonic Skyline R3 from Pro 6: Class R4 World 
    Nissan #23 XANAVI Nismo GT-R R3 from Riv 8: Ultimate Tuner 
    Nissan MINE'S R32 Skyline 1993 S-883 from Pro End 3: Maple Valley 
    Nissan MINE'S R34 Skyline GT-R 2002 S-869 from Pro Reg 1 Asian D
    Nissan R390 1998 S-872 from Pro SP 5: Nissan 350HP		
    Nissan Top Secret D1-Spec S15 2000 S-864 from Pro Mfg 5: Nissan Club
    	
    Mfg 6: Porsche.  You can run any Porsche.  The top competitor is an 
    A-794, so any of the R class Porsches you win will easily take the 
    event. I drove the #5 XBOX 360 911 GT3-RSR 2005 because I won it 
    early in the game.  Cars you win are:
    Porsche #17 Porsche AG 962c 1987 R1 from End 7: Nurburgring Porsche 
    Porsche #26 911 GT1-98 1998 R2 from Fac 8: Porsche 911 GT2 
    Porsche #5 XBOX 360 911 2005 R3 from Riv 7:  Porsche vs Farrari
    Porsche #55 911 GT3 2005 R4 from Fac 1: Porsche 914
    
    Mfg 7: Corvette.  You can run any Corvette but it had better be very 
    fast.  The top competitor is a Lingenfelter S-911 with 725 HP. 
    Fortunately, you win one of these in a different event.  
    Unfortunately, it handles horribly, extremely loose.  You also have 
    your choice of adding power to the Guldstrand Vette or running an R4 
    car which will handle better.  You win the following cars:
    Chevrolet #73 3R-Racing Corvette Z06 R4 from Reg 6:  American A
    Chevrolet #99 Tiger Racing Corvette Z06 R4 from Mfg 7: Corvette
    Chevrolet Lingenfelter 427 Corvette 2002 S-911 from Am 7: Big Block 
    Chevrolet Corvette Guldstrand 2003 A-790 from Am 5: American Iron 
    
    Mfg 8: Club della Suceria.  You can run any Ferrari but the top 
    competitor is rated S-898, so you need something very fast.  You win 
    a R1 Ferrari but not until late in the game.  You also win an R3 
    Ferrari but it come from a Factory Spec event that you have to by a 
    car for. You may want to upgrade a different car to do this race 
    earlier in the game.  I drove the F355 Challenge A - 800 from 
    European Level 30 the first time but waited for the #12 Risi 
    Competizione F333 the second time since I was based in a different 
    region then.  You win:
    Ferrari #12 Risi Competizione F333 SP 1998 R1 from Pro 9: Class R2 
    Ferrari #62 Risi Competizione F430GT R3 from Fac 9: Ferrari F430
    You win the Ferrari 330 P4 1967 here.
    
    Mfg 9: Viper.  You can run any Dodge Viper but it has to be very 
    fast to beat the Hennessey Viper 800 TT - S-953.  You win the 
    Hennessey Viper in this event but that does not do you any good 
    until later.  If you are based in North America, you get the Viper 
    GTS ACR at Level 30.  I used the GTS ACR the second time through the 
    game.  I used #57 the first time.  Any of the Vipers you win will do 
    the job:
    Dodge #22 3R-Racing Viper Comp. Coupe 2004 from Am 8: Five by Five
    Dodge #23 Magellan Viper Comp. Coupe 2003 R4 from SP 6: 400HP
    Dodge #57 Carsport Viper GTS-R 2000 R3 from End 6: Road Atlanta
    Dodge #58 Larbre Viper GTS-R 2001 R3 from Riv 9: Corvette vs Viper
    Dodge Hennessey Viper 800TT 2000 S-953 from Mfg 9: Viper Performance 
    
    Mfg 10: Club del Toro Furioso.  You can run any Lamborghini but you 
    will have to buy it.  The Diablo GTR, 236,000 cr., is the fastest 
    but I prefer a Murcielago for its all wheel drive.  I chose the 
    basic Murcielago, 214,500 cr. the first time.  By the second time I 
    played the game, I had Forza Platinum, with more cars available from 
    the expansion packs.  The extra cars included the faster Murcielago 
    LP 640 for 229,500 cr., so I used it instead.  Both Murcielagos 
    handle really well.
    
    
    ***SEMI-PRO***
    
    There are too many possibilities to list everything that you could 
    successfully run in these events.  I will tell you what I used in 
    each event but it generally won't mean much.  Eligible cars within 
    50 HP below the limit for each event are listed below according to 
    their initial HP but any listed car can race in a higher HP group.  
    With varying degrees of upgrades, you sometimes can use the same car 
    in two or three SP events.  Just start with a car that is somewhere 
    close to the right amount of horsepower and remember that, in 
    addition to bringing the horse power as close to the limit as 
    possible, you can reduce vehicle weight, put on racing tires, and do 
    anything else that will improve the car's performance without 
    exceeding the horsepower limit.  In general, try to avoid RWD cars 
    if you have a choice because of the Forza 2 prejudice against their 
    handling.  R class cars are not listed here because they cannot be 
    raced in SP events.
    
    SP 1: Goodyear 150 HP.  It does not make much difference which car 
    you choose for this event if you want to race something that you 
    won.  All the cars you win that are below the HP limit are 
    squirrelly RWDs that will require you to tune the handling. I used 
    my favorite little old Porsche 914/6 both times.  You win the 
    following cars that are below the HP limit:	
    Porsche 914/6 1970 125 HP from PG 3: European Open 
    Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex 1985 130 HP from PG Asian Open 
    Mazda Mazdaspeed Roadster 2001 146 HP from PG 4: FWD 
    			
    SP 2: Sparco 200 HP.  Either the Honda Wings West Civic Si 2004 171 
    HP from PG 6: AWD or the Acura VIS Racing Integra Type-R 2000  197 
    HP from Am 1: Inline 4 can be used here and then upgraded for the 
    Under 250 HP event.  I used the VW Golf I bought to start the game 
    the first time but switched to the Acura VIS Racing Integra the 
    second time.  
    			
    SP 3: Kumho Tire 250 HP.  I upgraded the Acura VIS Racing Integra 
    the first time but switched to the Lancia Delta Integrale EVO the 
    second time.  You win the cars listed below that are within 50 HP of 
    the limit.  I recommend the Lancia, Honda Mugen Integra Type-R, 
    Toyota APR Performance Celica GTS, or Volkswagen Golf R32 for their 
    handling over the RWD cars listed.	
    Porsche 911 Carrera RS 1973 207 HP from Am 4: Sports Car Classic 
    Lancia Delta Integrale EVO 1992 210 HP from PG 6: RWD 
    Toyota Border MR2 Turbo T-bar 1995 210 HP from PG 8: Mid-engine 
    Honda Mugen Integra Type-R 2002 217 HP from Mfg 2: Integra 
    Toyota APR Celica GTS 2003 223 HP from Riv 2: Sport Compact  
    Honda Mugen Civic Type-R 2004 240 HP from Riv 1: Young Guns 
    Toyota VIS  MR2 GT Turbo T-bar 1995 241 HP from Mfg 3: MR2
    Volkswagen Golf R32 2003 241 HP from Mfg 1: VW Club
    Lotus Exige Cup 240 2006 244 HP from Fac 4: Lotus Sport Exige
    			
    SP 4: Castrol 300 HP. I used the Camaro Z28 1969 the first time but 
    switched to the Lancia Delta the second time. I recommend upgrading 
    the Lancia over running any of the cars that start out closer to the 
    HP limit because of the Lancia's excellent handling.  It is easier 
    to add power than to tune handling.  Don't bother with the Camaro 
    unless you have a penchant for them like I do.  You win the 
    following cars that are within 50 HP of the limit: 			
    Mazda INGS RX-7 1995 255 HP from Riv 6: Super Tuner 
    Renault Sport Clio V6 RS 2003 255 HP from PG 7: Hot Hatch 
    Honda Mugen S2000	2003 257 HP from Am 5. Free Breathing 
    Mazda AB Flug RX-7 1995 265 HP from SP 3: 250HP 
    Honda Do-Luck NSX 1994 276 HP from PG 9: Fly Weight <2055 lb
    Chevrolet Camaro Z28 1969 290 HP from PG 1: North American
    			
    SP 5: Nissan 350 HP.  I used the Camaro Z-28 1969 the first time and 
    the Lancia Delta the second time, both with substantial upgrades, of 
    course.  The Lancia is the better choice, much better handling.  You 
    win the cars listed below that are within 50 HP of the limit.  If I 
    were racing one of them, I would take the Ford FocusSport SVT Focus 
    2003 for its handling.	
    Shelby Series 1 1999 320 HP from Fac 7: Shelby Cobra 
    Ford FocusSport SVT Focus 2003 334 HP from Fac 2:  Ford Focus 
    Lexus Foose Design IS430 2003 340 HP from Riv 3: Tuner Face-off 
    			
    SP 6: Stoptech 400 HP.  I used the Nissan Tommy Kaira Skyline GT-R 
    R34 2002 the first time but bought a Chevrolet Camaro SS 2002 that I 
    made to look like my own real life 2000 model to race in this event 
    the second time just because I felt like it.  That was my personal 
    whim. The Camaro 2002 is not something anyone needs to buy.  The 
    Nissan or Subaru are better choices.  You win the following cars 
    that are within 50 HP of the limit:
    Subaru Tommy Kaira Impreza M20b 1998 350 HP from Under 150 HP 
    Toyota Do-Luck Supra 1992 375 HP from Am 2: Boosted 
    Nissan Tommy K. Skyline GT-R R34 2002 394 HP from Am 3: 6 Cylinder
    			
    SP 7: Toyo Tires 450 HP.  I drove the Mitsubishi Mine's CP9A Lancer 
    EVO VI 1999 both times for its AWD handling.  You win the following 
    cars that are within 50 HP of the limit:
    Mitsubishi Mine's CP9A Lancer 404 HP from Riv 5 Impreza vs Lancer  
    Mazda RE-Amemiya RX-7 1995 441 HP from Fac 3: Mazdaspeed
    			
    SP 8. Panoz 500 HP.  I used the Mitsubishi Sparco both times because 
    of its great AWD handling.  You win the following cars that are 
    within 50 HP of the limit:  	
    Mitsubishi Sparco Evo VIII 2003 450 HP from SP 2: Sparco 200HP 
    Ferrari 330 P4 1967 468 HP from Mfg 8: Club della Suceria Ferrari
    			
    SP 9: Risi Competizione 600 HP.  I used the Nissan MINE'S R34 
    Skyline GT-R 2002 the first time but upgraded the Mitsubishi Sparco 
    Lancer Evolution VIII 2003 the second time.  You win the following 
    cars that are within 50 HP of the limit:
    SEAT Cupra GT Prototype 2005 500 HP from Reg 10:  Pan-European
    Shelby GT 500 2007 500 HP from PG 10 Heavy Weight
    Chevrolet Corvette Guldstrand 2003 502 HP from Am 5: American Iron 
    Nissan Top Secret D1-Spec S15 2000 540 HP from Mfg 5: Nissan Club 
    Jaguar XJ220 1993 542 HP from Reg 5: British Sports Car Championship
    Nissan R390 1998 550 HP from SP 5: Nissan 350HP 20 - 751
    Audi AWE Tuning SilveBullet S4 2000 557 HP from Mfg 4: Quattro Club 
    Lamborghini Diablo GTR 1999 590 HP from Mg 10: Furioso
    Nissan MINE'S R34 Skyline GT-R 2002 591 HP from Reg 1 Asian Class D 
    Mitsubishi HKS Time Attack Evolution 2006 592 HP from Pro 4: Class A 
    			
    SP 10:  K&N Filters 700 HP.  I used the Ferrari F355 Challenge 1998 
    from European Level 30 the first time.  By the second time I did 
    this event, I had the Murcielago LP 640 that I bought for the Mfg 10 
    event, so I used it.   You win the cars listed below that are within 
    50 HP of the limit.  Either of these cars will do the job with 
    sufficient upgrades.		
    Nissan MINE'S R32 Skyline GT-R 1993 621 HP from End 3: Maple Valley
    Maserati MC12 2004 625 HP from Reg 7:  Italian Masters
    
    
    ***RIVALRY FACE-OFFS***
    
    Riv. 1: Young Guns.   Honda Civic vs. VW Golf.  You best choice here 
    is the VW Golf R32 2003 C - 455 from Mfg 1 VW Club.  Other 
    possibilities are the Honda Wings West Civic Si - D-384 from PG 5 
    AWD or if bought a Golf for the Mfg 1 event.  
    
    Riv. 2: Sport Compact.  Toyota Celica vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse.  You 
    will have to buy this car.  The Toyota APR Performance Celica GTS 
    2003 is the fastest and best handling eligible car and you will have 
    to race against one but, at 103,500 cr., it also costs much more 
    than the alternatives.  You can buy a Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2006 for 
    13,500 cr. and upgrade it to beat the Toyota APR. That is what I did 
    both times.
    
    Riv. 3: Tuner.  Toyota Altezza vs. Nissan Silvia.  Only one choice 
    here.  The only car you win the that is eligible for the event is 
    the Nissan Top Secret D1-Spec S15 2000 S-864 from Mfg 5: Nissan 
    Club.  This is s a good news-bad news situation.  The car is very, 
    very fast but also very loose.  Fortunately, the usual air in the 
    front tires and stiffening the front sway bar will get it adequately 
    under control to roll over the much slower competition.
    
    Riv. 4: Great American.  Chevrolet Camaro vs. Ford Mustang.  I used 
    the Camaro Z-28 1969 with major upgrades both times.  The Shelby GT 
    500 B 642 from PG 10 Heavy Weight is a better choice but you need to 
    buy a car to race in the PG 10 event before you can get it.  If you 
    are based in North America, you also get the Ford Mustang Cobra R 
    2000 B-647 when you reach Level 20.  The Mustang Cobra R 2000 is 
    your top competitor in this race, so it is good to have one 
    yourself. 
    
    Riv. 5: Rallicross.  Mistsubishi Evo vs. Subaru Impreza. You have a 
    choice of two very competitive Mitsubishis or upgrading a Subaru. 
    Your top competitor is rated A-727.  You win these eligible cars:
    Mitsubishi HKS Time Attack Evolution 2006 S 967 from Pro 4: Class A 
    Mitsubishi Sparco Lancer Evo VIII 2003 A 797 from SP 2: Sparco 200HP 
    Subaru Tommy Kaira Impreza M20b 1998 B 642 from SP 1: Under 150 HP
    
    Riv. 6: Super Tuner.  Nissan Fairlady vs. Mazda RX7 or RX8.  You win 
    two eligible RX7s:  The AB Flug is competitive.  The RE-Amemiya will 
    blow away the field.
    Mazda RE-Amemiya RX-7 1995 A 846 from Fac 3: Mazdaspeed
    Mazda AB Flug RX-7 1995 B 613 from SP 3: 250HP
    
    Riv. 7: Europe.  Six cylinder Porsche vs. eight cylinder Ferrari.  
    You win two R4 cars that are competitive for this event.  Your top 
    competitor is rated A-798, so either of the R4 cars will do the job.  
    If you are based in Europe, you also have the Ferrari F355 from 
    Level 30.  I used the Ferrari the first time and Red Bull Porsche 
    the second time.  
    Porsche #55 911 GT3 2005 R4 from Fac 1: Porsche 914
    Porsche #82 Red Bull 911 GT3 Cup 2006 R4 from Mfg 6: Porsche Club
    Don't bother with the Porsche 914/6 from PG 3: European Open or the 
    Porsche 911 Carrera RS from Am 4: Sports Car Classic
    
    Riv. 8: Ultimate Tuner.  Nissan Skyline vs. Toyota Supra.  You win a 
    pile of Skylines and Supras but the top competitor is rated S-899 so 
    you need something fast to keep up.  Slower cars have been 
    eliminated from the list below.  Any one of the listed cars is good.  
    I drove the Nissan Skyline GT-R Mines 2002 with upgrades both times.
    Nissan #12 Calsonic Skyline 2003 R3 from Pro 6: Class R4 World 
    Nissan #23 XANAVI Nismo GT-R 2003 R3 from Riv 8: Ultimate Tuner 30
    Nissan MINE'S R32 Skyline GT-R 1993 S 883 End 3: Maple Valley B 
    Nissan MINE'S R34 Skyline GT-R 2002 S 869 from Reg 1 Asian Class 
    Toyota AB Flug S9 00 Supra Turbo 1998 S 899 from Pro 1: D-Class 
    World Toyota Top Secret 0-300 Supra 1998 S 960 from Pro 3:  World B 
    Toyota VeilSide Supra 03 1998 S 901 from Reg 3:  Jap Class B 
    Toyota VeilSide Supra 99 1998 S 916 from Am 10: 20th Cent. Supercar 
    Toyota #35 Yellow Hat YMS Supra 2004 R3 from End 1: Tsukuba Class D 
    Toyota #36 Open Interface TOM'S Supra 2005 R3from Reg 8: Japan  GT 
    Toyota #6 EXXON Superflo Supra 2005 R3 from End 8: Suzuka 
    
    Riv. 9: American Sports Car.  Chevrolet Corvette vs. Dodge Viper. 
    Your top competitor is rated S-911 so you need something very fast.  
    I used the Tiger Racing Z06 #99 2005 R4 the first time and the Dodge 
    Viper GTS ACR 1999 the second time. The Viper ACR required a lot of 
    upgrades.  You would do better to use one of the R class cars.  The 
    cars you win that are either competitive as they are or can be 
    upgraded to be competitive in this event are listed below. 
    Chevrolet #73 3R-Racing Corvette Z06 R4 from Reg 6: American Class A
    Chevrolet #99 Tiger Racing Corvette Z06 R4 from Mfg 7: Corvette
    Chevrolet Corvette Guldstrand 2003 A 790 from Am 5: American Iron 
    Chevrolet Lingenfelter 427 Corvette 2002 S 911 from Am 7:  Big Block 
    Dodge #22 3R-Racing Viper Comp. Coupe 2004 from Am 8: Five by Five
    Dodge #23 Magellan Viper Comp. Coupe 2003 R4 from SP 6: 400HP
    Dodge #57 Carsport Viper GTS-R 2000 R3 from End 6: Road Atlanta
    Dodge #58 Larbre Viper GTS-R 2001 R3 from Riv 9: Corvette vs Viper
    Dodge Hennessey Viper 800TT 2000 S 953 from Mfg 9: Viper Performance
    If you are based in North America, you also get the Chevrolet 
    Corvette Grand Sport 1996 at Level 25 and Dodge Viper GTS ACR 1999 
    at Level 30.
     
    Riv. 10:  Pride of Italy.  Twelve cylinder Ferrari vs. twelve 
    cylinder Lamborghini.  Your top competitor is rated S-931, again you 
    need a fast car to compete.  Your choice of cars here depends on 
    whether you want to be merely competitive or blow the field away.  
    From a standpoint of competitive racing, the Lamborghini Diablo GTR 
    1999 S 869 is the most appropriate car that you win to drive.  If 
    you want to win the event as easily as possible though, bests car 
    here is the #12 Risi Competizione R1 class Ferrari.  I used the 
    Ferrari 330 P4 1967 the first time (worst available choice) and the 
    Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 that I bought for Mfg 10 the second 
    time.  I recommend the Murcielago LP 640 for exciting racing.  If 
    you don't have the expansion pack cars available, use the Diablo 
    GTR.  Cars you win are:
    Ferrari #12 Risi Competizione F333 SP 1998 R1 from Pro 9: Class R2 
    Ferrari #62 Risi Competizione F430GT R3 from Fac 9: Ferrari F430
    Ferrari 330 P4 1967 S 868 from Mfg 8: Club della Suceria Ferrari
    Lamborghini Diablo GTR 1999 S 869 from Mfg 10: Furioso
    
    
    ***REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS***
    
    Cars that you win that are eligible for each of these races are 
    listed from best to worst for each event.  Always remember though 
    that you can upgrade any car to make it competitive if you prefer 
    something that is not at the top of the list or a car from a lower 
    rated class.
    
    Reg 1: Asian Class D.  The Honda Wings West Civic Si 2004 384 FWD 
    from PG 6: AWD is the best car you win for this event.  I used it 
    both times.  Or, you may want to use your starting car if Asia is 
    your home region.  Others available if you want more challenge are:
    Mazda Mazdaspeed Roadster 2001 296 RWD from PG 4: FWD 
    Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex 1985 245 from RWD PG Asian Open 
    
    Reg 2: Deutsch Class C.  I used my starting VW Golf GTi with 
    upgrades the first time.  I used it in a lot of events and did a lot 
    of upgrading anyway.  You may have the car available even if you 
    don't start the game with it because you have to buy a VW for the 
    Mfg 1: VW Club event. On the other hand, you get the Volkswagen Golf 
    R32 2003 C-455 AWD from Mfg 1 and it is a better ride.  I used the 
    Golf R32 the second time through the game.  You also have the 
    Porsche 911 Carrera RS 1973 429 from Am 4: Sports Car Classic but 
    the Golf handles better.
    
    Reg 3: Japanese Class B.  I used the Nissan Tommy Kaira Skyline GT-R 
    R34 2002 665 AWD from Am 3: 6 Cylinder both times.  Other available 
    cars are:
    Toyota Do-Luck Supra 1992 644 RWD from Am 2: Boosted
    Subaru Tommy Kaira Impreza M20b 1998 642 AWD	from SP 1: Under 150 
    HP 
    Mazda AB Flug RX-7 1995 613 RWD from SP 3: 250HP 10 - 564
    Honda Do-Luck NSX 1994 604 RWD from PG 9: Fly Weight <2055 lb
    Mazda INGS RX-7 1995 586 RWD from Riv 6: Super Tuner 
    Honda Mugen S2000 2003 554 RWD from Am 5. Free Breathing
    
    Reg 4: Stars & Stripes B-Class.  If you go with one of the B class 
    cars that you win, the Shelby GT500 2007 642 RWD from PG 10 Heavy 
    Weight is a little faster than the Lexus Foose Design IS430 Project 
    Car 2003 602 from Riv 3: Tuner Face-off. I passed up both of the 
    available B class North American cars for upgraded rides that 
    started out in lower classes.  I went with the Acura VIS Racing 
    Integra Type R 2000 the fist time.  The second time, I drove a 
    bought Camaro SS 2002 that I made look just like my real life road 
    car.  Bought the Camaro SS 2002 just because I felt like it.  You do 
    not have to buy a car for this event.  
    
    Reg 5: British Sports.  The event is limited to A class British 
    sports cars.  You don't win an eligible car for this event.  
    However, you have to buy the TVR Tuscan for 172,000 cr. for the Fac 
    6 event and it is a very good car to race here. 
    
    Reg 6: American Class A. You win two good cars for the event.  I 
    went with the Vette because I had it much sooner than the Shelby.  
    Chevrolet Corvette Guldstrand 2003 A-790 from Am 5: American Iron 
    Shelby Series 1 1999 A-737 from Fac 7: Shelby Cobra 30 A-765
    
    Reg 7: Italian Masters.  Any S class Italian car is eligible, 
    including cars that get upgraded into S class.  You can use either 
    the Lambo that you need to buy for Mfg 10: Club del Toro Furioso or 
    the Ferrari F430 that you need to buy for the Fac 9: Ferrari F430 
    event.  Or, you can wait and win one of the cars listed below.  Your 
    top competitor is rated S-954, so you need a very car fast to beat 
    it.  I used the Lamborghini Diablo GTR 1999 S-869 the first time and 
    the expansion pack Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 that I bought for 
    Mfg 10 the second time.  You win:
    Lamborghini Diablo GTR 1999 S-869 RWD from Mfg 10: Furioso
    Ferrari 330 P4 1967 868 RWD from Mfg 8: Club della Suceria Ferrari 
    
    Reg 8: Japan GT R3.  The Toyotas are faster than the Nissans or 
    Hondas.  I drove the Yellow Hat Supra both times.  You win:
    Toyota #35 Yellow Hat YMS Supra 2004 RWD from End 1: Tsukuba Class D 
    Toyota #36 OPEN INTERFACE TOM'S SUPRA 2005 RWD from Reg 8: Japan GT
    Toyota #6 EXXON Superflo Supra 2005 RWD from End 8: Suzuka 
    Nissan #12 Calsonic Skyline 2003 RWD from Pro 6: Class R4 World 
    Nissan #23 XANAVI Nismo GT-R 2003 RWD from Riv 8: Ultimate Tuner 
    Honda #16 G'ZOX NSX 2003 RWD from Fac 5: Honda NSX-R 
    Honda #18 Takata DOME NSX 2005 RWD from End 9: Sunset Peninsula
    Honda #8 Team Honda Racing ARTA NSX 2005 RWD from Pro 5: Class S 
    World 
    
    Reg 9: North American R2.  This race is for North American R2 cars.  
    R3 cars are eligible but not competitive.  You win plenty of R3 and 
    R4 North American cars and even an R1 but no R2s.  If you are based 
    in North America, you get Saleen #11 Graham Nash Motorsport S7R R2 
    for reaching Level 45.  If you are based in Europe or Asia, you will 
    have to buy a car.  You have a choice of several Corvettes or 
    Saleens, all at 325,000 cr.  The Saleens have the edge. 
    
    Reg 10: Pan-European R1.  The Ferrari #12 Risi Competizione F333 SP 
    1998 is the best R1 car you win.  The BMW Motorsport #15 V12 LMR 
    1999 and Bentley #7 Team Bentley Speed 8 2003 are about equal next 
    best.  You win these R1 cars:
    Ferrari #12 Risi Competizione F333 SP 1998 from Pro 9: Class R2 
    World BMW Motorsport #15 V12 LMR 1999 from Pro 10: Class R1 World

    Peugeot #3 Peugeot Talbot Sport 905 EVO 1 C 1993 from End 10: 
    Sebring
    
    
    ***FACTORY-SPEC*** 
    
    Only very specific models can be raced in Factory Spec events and 
    they cannot be upgraded in any way for those events.  If you wan to 
    run the same car in another event where it will need upgrades, race 
    it in the Factory Spec event before you upgrade it.  Otherwise, you 
    will have to remove the upgrades before you can do the Factory Spec 
    event and that does not always work.  You win two cars that are 
    required for Factory Spec events(the Porsche 914/6 for the Fac 1 
    event and the Mazdaspeed Roadster 2001 for the Fac 3 event).  Cars 
    must be purchased for the eight other events.
    
    Fac 1: Porsche 914/6.  Must be Porsche 914/6.  You win this in PG 3: 
    European Open. You will need to add air to the front tires to reduce 
    the squirreliness.
    
    Fac 2:  Ford Focus.   Must be Ford Focus SVT 2003 9,500 cr. You will 
    have to buy this car but it can be the one you start the game with 
    if you are based in North America.
    
    Fac 3: Mazdaspeed. Must be Mazdaspeed Roadster 2001.  You win this 
    car in PG 4. FWD. You will need to add air to the front tires.
    
    Fac 4: Lotus Sport Exige. Must be Lotus Exige 69,000 cr. You will 
    have to buy this car.  You will need to add air to the front tires.
    
    Fac 5: Honda NSX-R. Must be Honda NSX-R 2005 B 637 94,000 cr. You 
    will have to buy this car. Several Honda NSX Rs are available.  Be 
    sure to buy the correct one.  This is one of the best handling RWD 
    cars you will find in this game but you will still need to add air 
    to the front tires.
    
    Fac 6: TVR Tuscan S. Must be TVR Tuscan S 172,000 cr. You will have 
    to buy this car but you can also use it in Reg 5:  British Sports 
    Car. This car also handles pretty well for a RWD car but you will 
    still need to add air to the front tires.
    
    Fac 7: Shelby Cobra. Must be Shelby Cobra 180,000 cr. You will have 
    to buy this car.  This car is squirrely even after you add air to 
    the tires. Keeping this car going straight is a real challenge.
    
    Fac 8: Porsche 911 GT2. Must be Porsche 911 GT2, 203,500 cr. You 
    will have to buy this car.  Add air to the front tires.
    
    Fac 9: Ferrari F430. Must be Ferrari F430 174,000 cr. You will have 
    to buy this car. Add air to the front tires.
    
    Fac 10: McLaren F1. Must be McLaren F1 GT 250,000 cr. You will have 
    to buy this car. Add air to the front tires.
    
    
    ***PROFESSIONAL and ENDURANCE RACES***
    
    Most of the Professional and Endurance events are limited by class 
    of vehicle but are open to cars from all regions. There are only two 
    Professional and Endurance events that are limited more strictly 
    than to just class participation, Pro 8: GT Legends and End 7: 
    Nurburging Porsche 911 GT3.  Therefore, this section will be devoted 
    primarily to a run down of vehicles by class that will pertain to 
    both sets of events.  But first, the two non-class events.
    
    Pro 8: GT Legends.  This event is limited to Ford GT40s and Ferrari 
    330 P4s only.  You win the Ferrari in the Mfg 8: Ferrari event and 
    you don't win a GT40 anywhere.  Issue settled.  I ran the Ferrari 
    both times.
    
    End 7: Nurburging Porsche 911 GT3.  You win two cars that are 
    eligible for this event.  Porsche #82 Red Bull 911 GT3 Cup 2006 R4 
    from Mfg 6: Porsche Club is just a little better than Porsche #55 
    Applied Materials 911 GT3 Cup 2005 R4 from Fac 1: Porsche 914/6
     
    PROFESSIONAL EVENTS
    Pro 1: Class D World

    End 7: Nurburgring 911 GT3
    End 8: Suzuka R3
    End 9: Sunset Peninsula R2
    End 10: Sebring R1
    
    
    ***D  S Class Cars***
    
    Cars that you win in D, C, B, A, and S classes are listed below.  
    These lists are ranked by performance index but that hardly matters 
    if you are willing to upgrade.  Any car in a lower class can be 
    upgraded to be competitive in a higher class.  This usually will 
    work for the next two higher classes.  If you really like your D 
    Class starter car and have it set up to handle well, you can upgrade 
    it to run in C and B classes, as well as adding the horsepower to 
    compete in a couple of SP events.  
    
    ***D Class.  I recommend the Honda Wings West Civic Si 2004 384 from 
    PG 6: AWD for Pro 1 and End 1.  I used it for both events the first 
    time through the game.  The second time I made more challenge for 
    myself by upgrading the Porsche 914/6 to run in both events.
    Other available D class cars, in PI order, are:
    Chevrolet Camaro Z28 1969 383 from PG 1: North American 
    Mazda Mazdaspeed Roadster 2001 296 from PG 4: FWD 
    Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex 1985 245 from PG Asian Open 
    Porsche 914/6 1970 196 from PG 3: European Open 
    
    ***C Class.  Any of the cars listed below will do the job, although 
    some will need a few upgrades.  The top competitor in Pro 2 is C-537 
    and in End 2 is C-549.  I ran the Acura VIS Racing Integra Type-R 
    2000 from Am 1: Inline 4 in both Pro 2 and End 2 events the first 
    time because I had it early in the game.  I added more upgrades to 
    the Porsche 914/6 the second time just so I could do more events 
    with my favorite car.  C class cars you win are listed below in PI 
    order.  You can also upgrade a D class car as I did.
    Toyota APR Performance Celica GTS 2003 525 from Riv 2: Sport Compact 
    Honda Mugen Civic Type-R 2004 514 from Riv 1: Young Guns 
    Acura VIS Racing Integra Type-R 2000 507 from Am 1: Inline 4  
    Honda Mugen Integra Type-R 2002 506 from Mfg 2: Integra 
    Toyota Border MR2 Turbo T-bar 1995 497 from PG 8: Mid-engine 
    Lancia Delta Integrale EVO 1992 460 from PG 6: RWD 
    Volkswagen Golf R32 2003 455 from Mfg 1: VW Club 
    Toyota VIS  MR2 GT Turbo T-bar 1995 448 from Mfg 3: MR2 
    Renault Sport Clio V6 RS 2003 439 from PG 7: Hot Hatch 
    Porsche 911 Carrera RS 1973 429 from Am 4: Sports Car Classic
    
    ***B Class.  I recommend the Nissan Tommy Kaira Skyline GT-R R34 
    2002 from Am 3: 6 Cylinder for Pro 3 and End 3.  I used it the first 
    time.  It handles better than the Lotus or Supra.  I upgraded the C 
    class Acura VIS Racing Integra Type R 2000 from Am 1: Inline 4 the 
    second time.  B class cars you win are listed below in PI order.  
    You can also upgrade a D or C class car.
    Lotus Exige Cup 240 2006 700 from Fac 4: Lotus Sport Exige
    Nissan Tommy Kaira Skyline GT-R R34 2002 665 from Am 3: 6 Cylinder 
    Toyota Do-Luck Supra 1992 644 from Am 2: Boosted 
    Subaru Tommy Kaira Impreza M20b 1998 642 from SP 1: Under 150 HP 
    Shelby GT500 2007 642 from PG 10 Heavy Weight
    Peugeot 207 Super 2000 2007 629 from SP 4: 300HP 
    Mazda AB Flug RX-7 1995 613 from SP 3: 250HP 
    Honda Do-Luck NSX 1994 604 from PG 9: Fly Weight <2055 lb
    Lexus Foose Design IS430 2003 602 from Riv 3: Tuner Face-off 
    Mazda INGS RX-7 1995 586 from Riv 6: Super Tuner 
    Honda Mugen S2000 2003 554 from Am 5. Free Breathing
    
    ***A Class.  I recommend the Mitsubishi Sparco Lancer Evolution VIII 
    2003 from SP 2: Sparco 200HP or the Audi AWE Tuning SilveBullet S4 
    2000 832 from Mfg 4: Quattro Club.  I ran the Lancer in both Pro 4 
    and End 4 both times.  It has fantastic handling.  A class cars you 
    win are listed below in PI order.  You can also upgrade a C or B 
    class car.
    Mazda RE-Amemiya RX-7 1995 846 from Fac 3: Mazdaspeed 
    Audi AWE Tuning SilveBullet S4 2000 832 from Mfg 4: Quattro Club 
    Mitsubishi Sparco Lancer Evo VIII 2003 797 from SP 2: Sparco 200HP
    Chevrolet Corvette Guldstrand 2003 790 from Am 5: American Iron 
    Shelby Series 1 1999 737 from Fac 7: Shelby Cobra 
    Ford FocusSport SVT Focus 2003 736 from Fac 2:  Ford Focus 
    Mitsubishi Mine's CP9A Lancer 1999 727 from Riv 5 Impreza vs Lancer 
    
    ***S Class.  My choice for both Pro 5 and End 5 the first time I did 
    these events was the 2006 Mitsubishi HKS Time Attack Evolution S-967 
    from Pro 4: Class A World.  It may seem like an odd choice to race 
    against the likes of Ferrari, Maserati, McLaren, and Koenigsegg but 
    the 4WD is the clincher.  Upgrade the turbocharger and you will be 
    at the very top of the S class plus have excellent handling.  By the 
    second time I did these events, I had the Murcielago LP 640 that I 
    bought for the Mfg 10 event, so I used it.  It fits in with the 
    crowd much better visually.  Other eligible cars that you win are:
    SEAT Cupra GT Prototype 2005 975 from Reg 10:  Pan-European 45 R1
    Mitsubishi HKS Time Attack Evo 2006 967 from Pro 4: Class A World 
    Toyota Top Secret Supra 1998 960 from Pro 3:  World Class B Trophy 
    Maserati MC12 2004 954 from Reg 7:  Italian Masters 
    Dodge Hennessey Viper 800TT 2000 953 from Mfg 9: Viper Performance 
    Toyota VeilSide Supra 99 1998 916 from Am 10: 20th Century Supercar 
    Chevrolet Lingenfelter 427 Vette 2002 911 from Am 7: Big Block V-8s 
    Toyota VeilSide Supra Fortune 03 1998 901 from Reg 3:  Jap Class B 
    Toyota AB Flug S 900 Supra Turbo 1998 899 from Pro 1: D-Class World 
    Nissan MINE'S R32 Skyline GT-R 1993 883 from End 3: Maple Valley 
    Nissan R390 1998 872 from SP 5: Nissan 350HP
    Jaguar XJ220 1993 870 from Reg 5: British Sports Car Championship 
    Nissan MINE'S R34 Skyline GT-R 2002 869 from Reg 1 Asian Class D 
    Lamborghini Diablo GTR 1999 869 from Mfg 10: Furioso
    Ferrari 330 P4 1967 868 from Mfg 8: Club della Suceria Ferrari
    Nissan Top Secret D1-Spec S15 2000 864 Mfg 5: Nissan Club 
    
    
    ***R Class Cars***
    
    ***R class cars do not have PI ratings but that is deceptive.  The 
    cars within each R class are not all equal.  If you add up the 
    speed, acceleration, handling, and braking ratings for each car, you 
    will find that some of them total higher than others and that the 
    difference in scores is reflected in on-track performance, in the 
    relative position of the cars on the car selection screen, and on 
    starting grids.  The higher performing cars are always farther to 
    the right on the car selection screen and closer to the front of the 
    starting grid.  Keep that in mind when you have a choice of more 
    than one R class car.  This is especially important for R classes 
    because these cars cannot be upgraded.  You have to race them as 
    they come.  If you find yourself starting well back in the grid, it 
    is a sign that you probably should go get a different car.
    
    ***R4 Cars. You win ten R4 cars and only have to be at levels 15 and 
    20 to get the best.  Your fastest car for Pro 6 and End 6 is the 
    Porsche #82 Red Bull 911 GT3 Cup 2006 from Mfg 6: Porsche Club.  
    However, I ran one or the other of Vipers #22 and #23 both times for 
    both events because their handling was more stable than the Porsche.  
    R4 class cars you win are listed below in performance order.  
    Porsche #82 Red Bull 911 GT3 Cup 2006 from Mfg 6: Porsche Club 
    Dodge #22 3R-Racing Viper Comp Coupe 2004 from Am 8: Five by Five 
    Dodge #23 Magellan Financial Viper Comp. Coupe 2003 from SP 6: 400HP

    Ford #10 Tiger Racing Mustang 2004 from Riv 4: Great American 
    Cadillac #16 Team Cadillac CTS-V 2004 from Reg 4: Stars & Stripes B 
    
    ***R3 Cars. You win fifteen R3 cars. There is quite a range in their 
    performance though.  Wait for one of the better ones before you race 
    in this class. You can get some good cars by the time you reach 
    level 25.  Best car is the Ferrari #62 Risi Competizione F430GT 2006 
    but you have to buy a stock Ferrari F430 to run in Fac 9: Ferrari 
    F430 event in order to win #62.  You need to drop down the list to 
    another car if you want to do this race before buying your second 
    car.  R3 class cars you win are listed below in performance order.  
    Ferrari #62 Risi Competizione F430GT 2006 from Fac 9: Ferrari F430

    Opel #5 OPC TEAM PHOENIX ASTRA V8 2003 from Reg 2: Deutsch C-Class
    
    ***R2 cars.  You win six R2 cars.  The McLaren and the three 
    Maseratis are all equal and slightly better than the Pagani or 
    Porsche.  The first of the better cars that you can obtain is the 
    Maserati #15 at End 5.  R2 class cars you win are listed below in 
    performance order.
    McLaren #43 Team BMW Motorsport McLaren F1 GTR 1997 from Fac 10:

    Porsche #26 Porsche AG 911 GT1-98 1998 from Fac 8: Porsche 911 GT2 
    
    ***R1 cars.  You win eight R1 cars but most of them come very late 
    in the game.  The earliest you can win an R1 car is the #7 Bentley 
    Speed 8 from the End 4 Silverstone A Class event.  Fortunately, it 
    is a very good car.  You don't win a better one until the Pro 9: R2 
    and Pro 10: R1 events and you have to be up at levels 45 and 50 to 
    enter those events.  R1 class cars you win are listed below in 
    performance order.

    *****CARS YOU MUST BUY*****
    
    You are limited to a specific car for relatively few events and 
    sometimes you are able to win the cars you need to compete even when 
    the eligible models are very limited.  You will have to buy cars for 
    only the following events:
    
    PG 10: Heavy Weight.  The car must weigh at least 3850 pounds. There 
    are only 9 cars over 3850 pounds in the game but you are not really 
    limited to them because you can start with something a little 
    lighter and add bigger wheels and body pieces to bring up the 
    weight.  The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 2005, 158,000 cr., is the 
    fastest car that starts out above the weight minimum and you will 
    have to race against one so you had better not have anything slower.  
    I raced the Scaglietti the first time I played. On the other hand, 
    the second time I played through the game, I chose the Mistsubishi 
    GTO. 24,000 cr.   Even with a lot of upgrades it came out much 
    cheaper than the Scaglietti and, because of the Forza 2 programmers 
    prejudice against having RWD cars handle well, I had superior 
    handling in the AWD GTO.  
    
    Mfg 1: Volkswagen.  This can be your game starting car if you are 
    based in Europe, as it was mine the first time I played.
    
    Mfg 10: Club del Toro Furioso.  You can run any Lamborghini but you 
    will have to buy it.  The Diablo GTR, 236,000 cr., is the fastest 
    but I prefer a Murcielago for its all wheel drive.  I chose the 
    basic Murcielago, 214,500 cr. The first time.  By the second time I 
    played the game, I had Forza Platinum, the version with more cars 
    available from the expansion packs.  The extra cars included the 
    faster Murcielago LP 640 for 229,500 cr., so I used it instead.  
    Both Murcielagos handle really well.
    
    Riv. 2: Sport Compact.  Toyota Celica vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse.  The 
    Toyota APR Performance Celica GTS 2003 is the fastest and best 
    handling eligible car and you will have to race against one but, at 
    103,500 cr., it also cost much more than the alternatives.  You can 
    buy a Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2006 for 13,500 cr. and upgrade it to 
    beat the Toyota APR. That is what I did both times.
    
    Reg 5: British Sports.  The event is limited to class A British 
    sports cars.  You have to buy the TVR Tuscan for 172,000 cr. for the 
    Fac 6 event and that is your car for here also.
    
    Reg 9: North American R2.  This race is for North American R2 cars.  
    If you are based in North America, you get Saleen #11 Graham Nash 
    Motorsport S7RS R2 for reaching Level 45.  If you are based in 
    Europe or Asia, you will have to buy a car.  You have a choice of 
    several Corvettes or Saleens, all at 325,000 cr.  The Saleens have 
    the edge. 
    
    Fac 2: Ford Focus - Ford Focus SVT 2003 D 263 9,500 cr.  This can be 
    your game starting car if you are based in North America.
    
    Fac 4: Lotus Sport Exige - Lotus Exige 69,000 cr.
    
    Fac 5: Honda NSX-R - Honda NSX-R 2005 B 637 94,000 cr.  Several 
    Honda NSX Rs are available.  Be sure to buy the correct one.
    
    Fac 6: TVR Tuscan S - TVR Tuscan S 172,000 cr.
    
    Fac 7: Shelby Cobra - Shelby Cobra 180,000 cr.
    
    Fac 8: Porsche 911 GT2 - Porsche 911 GT2, 203,500 cr.
    
    Fac 9: Ferrari F430 - Ferrari F430 174,000 cr.
    
    Fac 10: McLaren F1 - McLaren F1 GT 250,000 cr.
