Having obtained the number one time on the "Wind Rider" community challenge on Xbox One, I was wondering when I will hear what prize I have won. Apologies if im being hasty but the challenge did finish on Tues and so far I haven't heard anything.

Who said that the first place wins anything? As far as I remember it always says "Compete in this challenge to win stuff" not "Be the first in this challenge to win stuff" :p

Simply because based on previous competitions I thought those who came first won a prize.

Thanks for your valuable input though!

It apparently takes time. Took a week or so? Before Joni got contacted for the Wisconsin Retrospective.

Yeah it took around week before was contacted & the price at wisconsin event was T3PA shifter.

Thanks for the replies as that is a relief to hear.

I have never won anything in my life, never even managed 3 numbers on the Lottery!

I was just joking (I tend to be silly at the end of the week) - congratulations for your win! :triumphant:

You only won because I couldn't be bothered 😜

Seriously, well done my friend.

I remember your previous words, so I'll say this. I won a mini PC from Codemasters for GRID Autosport, and I ended up forgetting the suite number on my address. I contacted them in just about every way and I never got answered. #thefeels

Still no word on a prize. I also sent Ian Bell a PM many days ago without reply. What also concerns me is I do not see the "Wind Rider" mentioned anywhere on the facebook events page.

I'm not sure you can message Ian Bell. His account is set up so that he doesn't receive private messages.

Dont think you will get any answer until next week. Atleast some of the staff is at Gamescom.

We are currently experiencing a bottleneck with prize allocation that we aim to have resolved today so please bear with us a little longer.

Not sure why the Facebook events aren't showing for some people, we'll take them down from Facebook until we can resolve the issue.

Still no news on prizes for this event. Starting to get a little impatient especially as you have updated the website with the Gamescom event winners. The Wind Rider event might not be as glamorous but its nearly 2 weeks since this event finished. Like I have said previously I put in alot of time and effort to get the No1 position on the Xbox One and I at least deserve to hear whether I have won a prize and what that exactly is.

Just another bug, there is no prize, like everything else about this game you have been suckerpunched!

Actually no, I take that back, your prize was the unceremonious dumping of your gamesave data because you dared to be faster than any of the fanboy teams, naughty boy!

I understand where you're coming from Ivor (and other no1 guys from previous events), but it's not worth getting impatient over. It's free stuff at the end of the day! Feel lucky! ;)

Andy already commented. Something has obviously gone wrong.

I won a free track day once from a sim competition run by a different company and it took them months before they sorted it. I just let it happen when it happened.

So almost a month and no sign of this being progressed?

Should be sorted out today said Andy on the 7th, three weeks later........

You haven't been forgotten. We still struggling to get them sourced, but Andy is on it.

I don't know who is at fault but I hope that the gains will be quickly given because GMDLondon and IVORBIGUN have spent time and deserves the prize. SMS are very professional and I'm sure they take their time to get everything in order ;)

Nearly a month has passed since I last heard from SMS. Still no new info which is disappointing. What I don't understand is why cannot I even be informed as to what prize I have won. Even more irritating to see the photo above.

I continue to wait patiently but my patience is wearing thin!

I'm pleased to say that with this mornings post we are now in possession of the prizes - Thrustmaster TH8RS Shifters - and we can now distribute them to the winners.

Apologies for it taking so long, as mentioned before there was an unforeseen logistical bottleneck that we have since rectified so this should not occur again.

Thanks very much, and be sure to share your photos and thoughts on the prizes when you receive them (usually takes about a week for delivery) :D

I find the TH8RS shifter is for PC and PS3, and TH8A is for PC, PS4, PS3 and Xbox1

07-09-2015, 21:13
That was what I thought, so is the winner of the XB one getting an 8A?

TrevorAustin
07-09-2015, 21:15
If anybody gets an RS that needs an A I'd be happy to swap, couldn't get an RS when I was looking for one so had to get the A. Works fine but the RS will be just as good.

Have You try on ps4 or only pc? And what if the winner lives in Japan and you in Brazil?

Yes I have just googled the shifter and it is only compatible for PS3/PC.

Whilst I am grateful to discover the prize I do have a problem. I do not own a wheel as I won the prize using the Xbox One controller, My PC is so old it couldn't run Manic Miner let alone PCars, My PS3 packed in a few days ago and is now in bits as a DVD was stuck inside.

no I only have PC, and pretty obviously that wouldn't work:) don't really get the point of your message, I was offering to do somebody a favour if they were interested, has zero effect on me at all. Have you won one then? Really don't get why you posted.

If you live in Rio de Janeiro and the winner in Germany do you know how much would cost to ship TH8RS to you and pay the shipping cost for the TH8A from Brazil to Germany? Plus the time , plus maybe some tax. Its very nice from you anyway.

Hello dear Community,
my N-Name is Ivan_platinum from Germany.
after a very long wait I have now decided to register me in the forum.
after I won the event Wind rider on PS4 I tried to take contact with Andy and slightlymadstudios.
but I could not get through and I was kind of in no fashion an award awarded.
Thanks to the networking and the composition of other competitors, I have learned that several players have received no awards.
according to the circumstances, I developed a defense against the team of project cars.
because I have invested a lot of time and patience. it was my favorite game to win my first event. after I stole wind rider, I was just disappointed. and have thus with the play of project cars stopped. Now I ended up going here for the truth by, but what I find here just sad. instead to eliminate this damage is aggravated. it does not mean for the players? It says rather for yourselves! This story deserves slowly popular attention to the diligent have been lied to.
One thing that I really care about. There are people like me who are excluded from Facebook! and at no price would I sign up for event information here.
I apologize for my spelling in advance
many greetings

And here we see the real reason to your thread, you need to change your name to IVORBIGHEAD ....

I don't think as many people enter these competitions like they used to.
I think some of the drivers from Forza or Forza 2 would have beat the top times here.
