Forza Motorsport 7 Welcomes June With New Rivals Events

June will be an unmissable month of new announcements and content for Forza fans. Not only do we have the debut of an all-new ‘Forza Monthly’ live-show on Monday, June 4th to detail the new features being introduced in the June Content Update for Forza Motorsport 7 launching the following day, but there’s also the Xbox E3 Media Briefing on Sunday, June 10th, during which the debut of an all-new Forza experience is inevitable.

That’s not to mention the 2018 ForzaRC Series 1 Playoffs live from Seattle on the weekend of June 16th, as well as the upcoming ForzaRC John Hindhaugh Le Mans Challenge. However, before we get to all of that throughout the month of June, a series of new Rivals events have been added to Forza Motorsport 7 for players to set their best lap times on. These include new Featured Events and VIP Rivals challenges, so let’s have a look at each of them.

The ‘Navigate Steady Apex Release’ VIP Rivals event will see you at the Brands Hatch GP circuit in daytime conditions to hot-lap the 2005 Honda NSX-R. There’s no PI limit or class restrictions for this one, so you can upgrade and tune the NSX to perfectly match your style on the track. I’d recommend grabbing one made by the community with S800 being the perfect balance between performance and usability based on my own experience.

The ‘ForzaRC June Competitive Training’ Rivals event has also arrived into Forza Motorsport 7. For this one, you’ll be driving the 2016 Ford Shelby GT350R stock on the Indianapolis GP circuit in Day conditions with the official assists and restrictions from the 2018 season of the Forza Racing Championship. That means there's no braking line with friction assist, traction and stability control disabled.

The two new Featured Rivals events come in the form of ‘Electric Race Venue’ and ‘500 of Its Kind.’ The former of these is a Formula E event on the full Long Beach circuit. You can choose any of the Formula E race cars available in Forza Motorsport 7 for this event, but it must be stock with Friction Assist disabled. The latter sees you in the 1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 stock with Friction Assist turned off at the Catalunya National circuit.

Finally, the Community Choice Rivals events continues in June. These fan-voted events are chosen by the Forza Motorsport community in polls shared once a week onto Twitter. This week’s event sees players at Watkins Glen – the Short Alt circuit, to be precise, in a stock 2013 Audi RS 7 Sportback with Friction Assist disabled. These community-voted events complement the current roster of Rivals challenges in Forza Motorsport 7, which will soon be expanded by the upcoming ‘Time Attack’ mode. This will see Rivals leaderboards enabled for all the different car class and track combinations available in the game.
