CAR BUILD 
Cars must be built to the specified build. You can tune your car.

* CAR SELECTION *

Teams Must consist of  2 or 3 drivers

Teams of 2 drivers, both must have the same GT prefix, must be in the same community team.
examples
eg DOR Steve911 & DOR YelloCactus can form a team.
eg DOR steve911 & PTG Sean would not be allowed, both drivers would run as privateers. 

 teams of 3 can contain drivers of different community prefix. A team will be announced as a community team if 2 out of the 3 drives carry the Same prefix.
Community teams entering more than one team must choose different models of cars.

eg DOR Alpha chooses the Ferrari then DOR Beta must choose a different car and cant choose the Ferrari

A team will be announced as a community team if 2 out of the 3 drives carry the Same prefix. 

This rule is in to promote a mix of cars on track. We ask that all drivers and teams entering the retros respect this and don't look for ways around it (of which there are many) 
The Retros has the largest selection of cars known to any Forza Event there are more than enough choices.
