Player unintentionally helps opponent win in Forza Horizon 5

The game is full of exciting races. The races can often run to the line and leave the player at the edge of their seat. However, one particular race has led the community to a fit of laughter. This is because the clip is quite bizarre. The physics of the game, while not the most realistic, is decent.

Cars and vehicles seem like they have their own weight and momentum. The suspension of disbelief is enough to leave the player believing that certain acts are possible.

The clip shows the user in the lead just before reaching the finish line. The player gains some airtime through a ramp and maintains his course. However, the person trailing the player does the same. Suddenly, the player trailing the user lands on the roof of the user’s vehicle. The user has no choice but to complete the race.

He maintains course and does so. The UI shows that the user is still in the first place. The tale at the finish line, however, is quite different. The user is congratulated for finishing the race in second place.

What appears to have happened is that, owing to the ramp, the second player trialing managed to land on the user’s vehicle. The user then literally ‘carried’ the 2nd place holder to victory. By doing so, the user unintentionally sacrificed his own first-place position.
