The Forza Motorsport 7 Brickyard Bounty Hunter event with IndyCar has arrived for its second year running. Drivers will be putting their skills to the test in any 2019 IndyCar machine of their choice on the Brickyard Speedway against ten real-world IndyCar drivers and team owners who, in addition to preparing for the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 26th – the biggest event of the year on the IndyCar calendar, will also be setting their best lap times possible in Forza Motorsport 7 against the entire Forza community.
This is the final Bounty Hunter event that will be hosted by Turn 10 Studios in Forza Motorsport 7, so it’s no surprise that the prizes are bigger than ever. In addition to earning 500,000 CR for just participating in the event, alongside a 2017 Chevrolet #4 AJ Foyt Enterprises IndyCar for your in-game Car Collection, drivers will earn a further 100,000 CR and an additional bonus car for each bounty’s time they successfully beat. With 10 total bounties to take down, alongside those sweet participation rewards, that’s a grand total of 1,500,000 CR up for grabs alongside 11 bonus cars.
It’s undoubtedly the biggest and most rewarding Bounty Hunter event in the history of the Forza franchise, but which names from IndyCar will you be taking on? Some of them will certainly be recognizable to Forza fans, including Josef Newgarden, Conor Daly and James Hinchliffe. As for the rest, they can be found listed below, alongside their Xbox Live Gamertags and associated rewards if you successfully beat them in this challenge.
Be sure to add each of the above Gamertags to your Xbox Live friends list so you can race against their ghosts in the Rivals event and compare times. As for car choice, keep in mind these IndyCars are technically the same in terms of power and performance – the official team livery is the most notable difference between each, so choose the one which stands out to you the most. Additional details on these 2019-spec IndyCar racers can be found in our dedicated article for the Forza Motorsport 7 May 2019 Update.
Meanwhile, for some tips on how to improve your overall performance out on the track, be sure to download some leaderboard replays from both the IndyCar participants as well as some of the top drivers in Forza Motorsport 7. You can access these by navigating to the event leaderboard, filtering the list by ‘Top Scores,’ and then downloading the relevant replays. Watching replays from professional Forza drivers can not only improve your overall skill and knowledge of the car and track combo, but it can also help with your braking, steering and racing line – as well as figuring out the best assists to use for each Rivals event combination.
The Forza Motorsport 7 Brickyard Bounty Hunter event will be available through the month of May and is scheduled to end on Wednesday, June 5th, at midnight UTC time. Be sure to set your best time on the event before then by finding it listed under the Featured Rivals menu in Forza Motorsport 7. This is also where you’ll find this month’s Spotlight Rivals event starring the 1969 Brawner Hawk III on the Sonoma Grand Prix circuit. Plus, for even more IndyCar fun, Turn 10 has even enabled a new IndyCar Division Hopper starring the 2019 cars.
