It's important to know why, our tournament is important so here is a little information for you.

November 30, 2013 was a day that will be remembered as the passing of Paul Walker, an American actor. Walker began his career guest-starring in several television shows. In 2001, Walker gained international fame for his portrayal of Brian O'Conner in the street racing action film The Fast and the Furious, and would reprise the role in five of the next six installments. In Fast & Furious 6 (2013) he won the 2014 MTV Movie Award as best on-screen duo, with Vin Diesel.

Outside of acting, starred in the National Geographic Channel series, Expedition Great White, latter changed to Shark Men. He also founded the charity "Reach Out Worldwide" (ROWW), an organization providing relief efforts for areas affected by natural disasters.

In March 2010, Walker went to Constitución, Chile to offer his help and support to the people injured in the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that struck on February 27. He flew with his humanitarian aid team, Reach Out Worldwide, to Haiti to lend a helping hand to the 2010 Haiti earthquake victims.

He was also an avid car enthusiast, who competed in the Redline Time Attack racing series in which he raced an M3 E92 and was on the AE Performance Team. His car was sponsored by Etnies, Brembo Brakes, Ohlins, Volk, OS Giken, Hankook, Gintani, and Reach Out Worldwide.

"I've always wanted to race cars, ever since I was a young boy, as I think a lot of guys have." Paul Walker

Roger Rodas became Walker's financial adviser in 2007 and helped to establish Reach Out Worldwide. Rodas, was also a pro-am racer who worked as Walker's financial adviser, was the CEO of Always Evolving, a Valencia high-end vehicle performance shop owned by Walker.

"I'm a crazy car guy. I've got an airplane hangar full of cars" Paul Walker

Walker was close friends with his 2 Fast 2 Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson. Vin Diesel considered Walker to be like a brother, both on and off screen, and affectionately called him "Pablo". Walker's mother referred to her son as Diesel's "other half".

Paul Walker tragically died alongside friend Roger Rodas in a single-vehicle collision on November 30, 2013, at approximately 3:30 p.m. PST. Walker and Roger Rodas, had just left an event for Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide for victims of Typhoon Haiyan in Rodas's red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. The car crashed into a concrete lamppost and two trees on Hercules Street, in a 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) speed zone. Authorities determined that Rodas was driving the car, while Walker was the passenger. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department declared both victims dead at the scene.

The curve where Walker and Rodas were killed is a popular spot for drifting cars. The coroner's report stated that the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT was traveling at a speed possibly as high as 100 miles per hour (160 km/h) and that the speed of the car was the main reason for the crash. The coroner's report further stated that no alcohol or other drugs were found in the systems of either man. Furthermore, it states that there were no hints of technical problems with the car and neither a damaged surface of the street nor parts on the street played a role in the accident. Police investigated as to whether drag racing played a role, but were unable to find evidence of a second car's involvement.[1]

Walker was halfway through the filming of “Furious 7,” now a box office hit in cinemas world wide when he was in that tragic car accident. His unfinished scenes were left in the hanging, with the directors left with the decision to wither scrap the movie or to continue with changes to the original plot. However, with the help of Walkers’ brothers, Cody and Caleb, and computer-generated imagery (CGI), the film was completed and dedicated to the deceased actor.[2] The song "See You Again" by Wiz Khalifa, which appeared on the Furious 7 soundtrack, is a tribute to Walker.

In honor of the reason for the event, why not utilize the Forza Horizon 2 presents Fast & Furious? They have multiplayer, and are sort of based on the films...

*EDIT* And weren't they free are one point?
Sign me up, I have several Forza games, but I'd prefer to play on Forza 5 because that's the one I own on X1 (except the Fast & Furious one, which might be more appropriate)
