In a new twist, the challenge that starts on this coming Sunday is the first in the new Austin Series.

Winning this prize-car Austin will grant access to a special weekend challenge immediately after that awards a Carbon Fiber Pack.

This series will then continue over an extended period of time, with each subsequent challenge requiring one more Austin prize car. Collect 5 Austins over the whole series you can qualify for the final challenge that will award the Porsche Moby Dick!

    That sounds really exciting, I wonder what kind of op garage will be needed though, either way can't wait to see which direction this goes!

    I hope the events leading up to the final are rq45 (entry rq), otherwise the rq140+ brackets will be very crowded and competitive....I can already see myself not making it

    Yeah, you would think that you get one austin car for each challenge, so you will end up with 5, but the chance any of those 5 austins are good enough, is probably very slim.

    If the Austin cars are good or not is really beyond the point. The fact that you need to get 5 of them to even qualify for the Porsche finals is what got me....this ain’t gonna be easy

    It’s replaces the normal weekly challenge. Not multiplayer.

    Sounds Awesome. I think it will be lots of fun

    Can someone explain... so this whole challange is a single player event where the final price is the Porsche?

    You face off in the challenge like normal, but you have to collect each of the 5 Austin’s to advance. Once you have 5 Austin’s you get the chance to play for the Porsche. That’s my best educated guess

    Oh...I didn’t understand it like that at all. Your explanation does make sense 🙃

    basically we are limiting the casual players to enter the finals. Sounds scary

    Nice twist

    Sounds like an interesting change. I was wondering when the super smurfs would come up for grabs!

    So if i understand correctly, we get one austin every two months, finals will require 5x austin.. Which means no Moby dick for another year.

    Comparing the Austins:
    Austin Ambassador: Best All-rounder
    Austin-Healey 3000: Best drag car
    Austin 1100 vs Allegro vs Maxi: 1100 is more handling-focused, Maxi is more drag-focused and Allegro is in the middle of the two.
    Allegro has the lowest top speed tho
    Austin-Healey Sprite: Best smurfer
    This week is probably gonna award the sprite

    Correct! It’s a long-term challenge.

    If I get all 7 prize cars, that will more than quadruple my prize car amount :D

    Where did you get that info from? Sounds like a long drawn out process of its over the space of a year

    For a year? LOL

    it will be interesting to see how hutch will create challenges that are tough enough so not everybody gets a Moby Dick and at the same time are not too difficult so players with less developed garages don't get the feeling of having no chance at al.

    I can't imagine anybody would miss the firework on the next anniversary.
