Pretty much self-explanatory. I'm playing through the career on Forza Motorsports 3, and am now starting at positions from 1 - 3. When I started the game, I was starting at position 8. (Both of these are assuming an 8-car grid.)
I'm fairly certain this has to do with driver level, but I'm not sure what the progression rate is. It doesn't seem consistent, as depending on the race and the vehicle I choose, I may be anywhere from pole to 3 now, and didn't really pay attention (d-oh) while going through the career.
