SEASON EVENT DETAILS

Toggle the menu to show the rewards and restrictions for each event - if you complete the event in a car outside the restrictions or fail to meet the target, you won’t get the reward and points from completion. You must have unlocked the Hall of Fame with Accolade points to enter the Trial. Access to Rally Adventure events require defeating the three team champions. Access to Hot Wheels events requires the Hot Wheels Expansion DLC; users without the DLC will still be able to gold the season and unlock the “Min, Meet Max” Achievement without these event points.

Glad we made the right tunes for this week lol. I still say they should of done b class… This week has been rough for trial goers…but I have a feeling the carnage will be great this week in a class cross country. Hoping I can get way out ahead and avoid the pile ups on the first few t urns.

Some information about my quick test for the Trial:

I’m surprised Watsonero77 isn’t promoting his tune more. I thought it was really good.

I got a 73 and a defender tune that in my opinion might just be better :). I will have to put them up tomorrow. The 15 is so consistent though. I can run it bad…and at the least I hit a 1:55 every time or lower lol.

Now that we have definite details of car restrictions I’ll be taking my top 4 out for a further run before the Spring Playlist goes live. If you share your other tunes I’ll be happy to try them.

@SpirantCrayon22 based on historical patterns, do you reckon Viper AE will be eligible for weekly Forzathon?

oof . . . good question

I think it has qualified for events in general and I don’t remember noticing that it was not eligible

can’t be sure, of course, but I reckon it’s an okay one

if it isn’t then it’s not my fault, as Han or Lando might say

Anyone have a modern supercar recommendation that no one usually uses, but is a decent car to tune for present and future use? I consistently use lambos or the viper and want to expand a bit. Tired of using the same old meta.

Interesting reward car this week.
The existing F-Type is one of the worst cars relative to PI in Forza (Horizon and Motorsport). I can’t imagine this new one to be even worse. But we’ll see.

Good point. Was sitting here going over my choices for the playlist…and just want to keep using different stuff. I feel like I am in a rut using the same old cars every week. Great choice that I didn’t even think of. Thank you.

Thanks for the support!! Still can’t believe that tune is approaching 10,000 downloads.

More a product of timing than anything else but still super happy.

I tuned the Viper for dirt just because I could

@geistwriter - just pipped past you in the 73 Rover. It was a mighty effort to do by the way.

That last bend is the key, if i do that absolutely perfect (which i reckon i nearly done on occasion), then a 1:50 is possible for me.

To be honest though, i think i was at the limit of the tune i ran with for the 73, but i am nonetheless a happy fella :upside_down_face::blush:
