Turn 10 is closing down the project and playing lots and lots of Forza 2. Turn 10 officially kicked off their automated (but controlled) tournament system for the game on a closed circuit network (available only to Microsoft devs and the press), giving them a small taste of how tourneys may play out over Xbox Live. Here's a quick recap of how the online tournament feature works in the game. Each week, Turn 10 will be setting up tournaments on Xbox Live in each of the classes (D-R1). Qualifying for these tourneys is as easy as logging a hotlap session and posting your fastest time -- after which you'll be seeded in the tournament, ranked on how well your did in your qualifying time. If you qualified high, you'll find yourself scheduled to race in a heat on the bracket with 3 or less other contestants. If you didn't do so well qualifying, you end up in a heat with 7 other players. The idea here is that those who qualified high get an automatic pass to move past the initial round because to move to the next round, you'll need to place 4th place or higher in a race. Qualifying for each tournament is typically open for 2 days, after which you can browse the brackets and see which heat you've been assigned. Turn 10 have much more detail on the tournament system in an upcoming Weekly Pitpass Report, including a weekly schedule.
