New Tournament modes for PGR4

Free-to-download PGR4 content coming

The latest download content delivery has arrived on Xbox Live Marketplace for Project Gotham Racing 4, adding a bunch of online tournaments for those who fancy themselves as a bit handy behind the wheel.

The free update adds four new races including Daily Tournaments, Super Saturday, Simulation Sundays, and the Global Cup. To qualify for the tournaments (which happen either daily or bi-monthly depending) you've got to set a decent lap time on a Solo Hot Lap race and check the leaderboards to see if you're in.

Those who qualified will have a spot reserved for them, while no-shows for the actual tournament races will be disqualified.
