Turn 10 Studios has teased what fans can expect from Forza
Motorsport 7 in March in terms of new Forzathon and Rivals events.
In the latest Forza Motorsport Week
in Review, Turn 10 Community Manager Brian Ekberg revealed that beginning
next week, the team is switching the focus of its weekly Monday polls from fan-voted
Specialty Dealer cars to Rivals events. Those who follow @ForzaMotorsport on Twitter will be available to
vote on a new ‘Community Choice Rivals’ event each week in March.
For those curious to how this will work, Turn 10 will reveal
either the car or track and ask them to choose between a selection of cars or
tracks they would like to set times on for the event. For example, one week Turn
10 might reveal a track and ask players to choose from a selection of vehicles;
whilst another week will see players vote on tracks with a specific car in
In addition, Turn 10 will enable the winning event on the
same day the poll closes. Keep an eye for the poll on Monday, which we’ll be
sure to share on the official FullThrottle
Twitter account as well.
Don’t forget, the February Valentine’s Bounty Hunter events
featuring Turn 10 Studio Head Alan Hartman remain active in Forza Motorsport 7
this week, and offer the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS and 1958 MG MGA for simply
participating, with the 1993 Ford SVT Cobra R Forza Edition and Jaguar XJ220
Forza Edition available for beating his times in the 2017 Ford GT and the
classic 1966 Ford GT40 on Daytona and Le Mans Classic, respectively.
As for Forzathon events, Turn 10 has re-enabled the latest
batch of events after they unintentionally
expired from Forza Motorsport 7. All three are now available to all
players, and the rewards include the 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale, the 1932
Ford De Luxe Five-Window Coupe, and the Motion Capture Driver Gear.
This set of Forzathon events will close at the end of the
month as a new set goes lives on Thursday, March 1st. You can have an early
glimpse at the upcoming events from the Forzathon menu in Forza Motorsport 7,
but you can also have a look at the prizes here as well. The full list of challenges
has yet to be revealed, but if they’re anything like before, they should be
simple and straightforward for players to complete.
There will be a total of six new events, including a variety
of rewards like the 2013 Audi R8 Coupé V10 Plus 5.2 FSI Quattro, the 1977
Pontiac Firebird Trans Am SD-455, the 2000 Plymouth Prowler, the 1972 Chrysler
VH Valiant Charger R/T E49, the 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed, and the ‘Surely
You Joust’ Driver Gear suit.
Turn 10 has also revealed the events and prizes fans can
expect from Season 4 of Forza Racing
Leagues in Forza Motorsport 7. Across the four weeks of racing on offer in
the next season called ‘Marching Motors,’ fans can look forward to the 2012

Series 1 of this fourth season will see players racing in
the following events; Ghosted Rebirth of Muscle, Simulation Rise of the
