This is the second of what I will characterize as highly detailed, extensive interior routes. This one is designed for a single player versus an AI drivatar. It’s not a typical “race”. You do need to beat the other vehicle to the finish line, but there are additional objectives you must achieve along the way. Crossing the finish line without achieving the objectives will only earn you second place.
The full event trailer is here:

The four objectives are as follows:
First: Get to the museum’s loading dock. Do this in the most efficient manner you can. That is, take shortcuts. The loading dock is accessed from from a lower road.
Second: Find and enter the vault. This will be more challenging with the drive line off. Even more challenging if you turn the map off. It’s not a maze, but the route isn’t always obvious. There are not big glowing arrows to point you in the right direction. You will obviously lose time if you end up at dead ends.
Third: Grab loot from the vault by smashing treasure chests. Scoring is based on the number of chests “collected”. However, you must at least find (smash) the treasure chest with the secret file in order to win.
Fourth: Avoid all contact with the other vehicle and beat it to the rendezvous point (finish line).
The original intent was to have the player compete in a Mini to match the original movie. I decided later that it didn’t matter. You can also select your own car class. It turns out that most of the time the other driver is easily paralyzed by simple things and doesn’t pose much of a challenge. They are nearly useless in a D class car. But they do occasionally make it through the course. So don’t get too complacent.
Just one other word of advice. Don’t plow through all the loot at once. You won’t get credit for all the chests. That’s not my design. its just the way the game works.
Feel free to explore. Even spaces off the formal race route are thoughtfully detailed. And yes, there’s a way to get into the exhibit areas of the upper museum if you have a decent vehicle with good ground clearance. Besides displaying the usual Forza props, I even added my own art exhibit in one of the lower galleries.
Above all, have fun! This might be your only chance to race around inside a fancy museum in your car or truck. C’mon. You know you want to.
