How to unlock the Brickyard Legend challenge

  • 7 1 11
    This is a "2h 20m" Race. You need to get at least 150 Laps. To be sure drive 152 Laps (380 Miles). As at the Long Beach Event I did 126 Miles, where 125 Miles was needful and stopped at/in the Pit-Lane (so kept in race), but it said I did 98% after the Event.

    At this Indy 500 Event we had a person who messed up for others in the first 10-15m (and then quit) of the Race, all other Drivers got way enough Miles for the Challenge. I got 201,5 Laps (503,75 Miles).

    -------------- Update: -------------

    When searching for Tunes, put by search always at Environment/Track: "Indianapolis Oval". Off-course search for X-Class. Below some tunes that can be good. Self used the #9 Honda Tune that is standing below.

    #1 Chevy: "Bob Dixon 76", title: "VM Indy" & "ThatGuysAverage", title: "Indy Oval #1".
    #12 Chevy: look if someone in Top 16 of the Rivals Leaderboard have shared their Tune.
    #9 Honda: "ThatGuysAverage", title: "Indy Oval #1".
    #15 Honda: If he has shared for this car the Tune from "Bob Dixon 76". Otherwise there is no great #15 tune.

    AckisI tried doing this and after about 20 minutes I was lapped by everyone about 5 times... not sure why I was so slow. =/

    ezhnoYour speed would be slower primarily because of your driving style but also because of the tuning set-ups that other people use. Either way there is enough time that anyone should be able to get enough miles. I finished this particular challenge with ~35 minutes left.

    AckisI was doing the math in my head and after about 20 minutes I was only at 50 miles, which means I'd be pushing it really close for the event.

    Make sure you don't have assisted braking on or you might lose a lot of speed in the corners. I'd also recommend driving in manual and just staying in 6th gear for the entire race, that will keep you from downshifting and losing speed. I can't really imagine not being able to get the miles done in an Indy Car on the Oval track unless you spin/flip your car a bunch of times. I had almost an hour left in the Long Beach Challenge but kept driving anyway because I wanted the XP.

    SatNiteEduardoThis lobby is stock only. Tunes do not stay on the car even though it does not say that.

    PlatinumPengwinI actually completed the full 500 miles. Crossed the finish line just before time ran out.
