Forza Motorsport 7 Celebrates A Fresh Start In New Weekly Forzathon Events

With the June Content Update for Forza Motorsport 7, developer Turn 10 Studios introduced a new, overhauled Forzathon experience that’s built directly into the game. This new system is configured by the developer itself and is no longer constrained to Xbox Live services. Whilst this means you’ll no longer receive Achievements for beating these limited-time in-game events, players will benefit by more varied challenges with better prizes on a more frequent schedule.

Initially, Turn 10 will host three Forzathon events in Forza Motorsport 7 on a weekly basis. Each individual week will feature one 1-step, one 2-step, and one 3-step Forzathon event to beat. You can monitor your progress from within the game as you finish challenges and make your way through each of the different events available.

The first batch of these new-styled, revamped Forzathon events are now live in Forza Motorsport 7 and offer three unique rewards for players to unlock – the 2008 Ferrari California, the 1971 Chevrolet Vega GT, and the ‘Skullfulage’ Driver Gear outfit. Below, you can find a breakdown of the challenges with each event and their associated rewards.

A Fresh Start

  • Challenge: Start your day off right by completing a Race in any Ford.
  • Prize: ‘Skullfulage’ Driver Gear
  • Date: June 8th – June 15th

The event is the easiest of the trio. Simply head into Free Play and select the Ford vehicle of your liking. Complete any race event on any track you desire to beat this challenge and unlock the ‘Skullfulage’ Driver Gear suit. If you want to get this one done quickly, you can even set the race to be simply one-lap!

In The Lagoon

  • ‍Challenge 1: Win a Race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in a Forza GT division car.
  • Challenge 2: Complete 3 Laps at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
  • Prize: 1971 Chevrolet Vega GT
  • Date: June 8th – June 15th

The best way to beat this event is to head to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in any Forza GT division race car of your choosing for a quick, one-lap event. Ensure you win the race if Drivatar opponents are enabled. Then restart that same event and set it to three laps. After you’ve completed the second run, you’ll have beaten both challenges in subsequent order to unlock the classic 1971 Chevrolet Vega GT.

Celebrating Our Community

  • ‍Challenge 1: Win a Race at Bernese Alps Club Circuit in 2015 McLaren P1 GTR.
  • Challenge 2: Complete a Race at Road Atlanta Club Circuit in 2014 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4.
  • Challenge 3: Complete 4 Laps at Mugello Club Circuit in a Forza Touring Cars division car.
  • Prize: 2008 Ferrari California
  • Date: June 8th – June 15th

This Forzathon event is the last of the bunch this week and will obviously require the most time of the three – but that’s still not too much of a time commitment either! Simply head to the Bernese Alps Club Circuit in a 2015 McLaren P1 GTR hypercar and win a quick one-lap race before completing another race at Road Atlanta’s Club Circuit in a 2014 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4. 

Lastly, you’ll need to complete four laps of the Mugello Club Circuit in a Forza Touring Division Car. Once you’ve completed all three challenges in sequence order, the 2008 Ferrari California will be yours.

Forzathon Overhauled for Forza Motorsport 7

Once you start to progress through each of the individual Forzathon events available this week, you’ll most likely notice the new in-game notification that highlights whether you’ve progressed in an event or completed it. It’s a neat addition and updates immediately, showcasing whether you’ve made any contributions to an active Forzathon event after you finish a race event.

Because these revamped Forzathon events update immediately, there’s no need to worry about challenge progression going untracked or having to restart events or reload track locations to force the game to count your progress. It’s all instantly tracked and updated, and it means you can complete each of the different events at ease. Claiming your rewards from Forzathon after you’ve beaten a challenge is as easy as navigating to the Forzathon submenu within Forza Motorsport 7.

So, there you have it – the first batch of all-new, weekly Forzathon events in Forza Motorsport 7. A fresh start for these community engagement challenges. As usual, there’s plenty more in-game events that are currently live and well-worth checking out, including the ForzaRC John Hindhaugh Le Mans Challenge, as well as the current Leagues series and June Rivals events. Next week, fans can look forward to three new Forzathon events featuring the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT S, the 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster and the ‘Finish First’ Driver Gear outfit as rewards.
