The March Bounty Hunter challenge has arrived into Forza Motorsport 7, but this one is a little different than before. Last week, Turn 10’s Community Manager Brian Ekberg teased that the March Bounty Hunter event would be “more competitive,” offering “more rewards than any Bounty Hunter event in Forza history.”

Fast forward to today, and the latest Bounty Hunter event is now live in Forza Motorsport 7 with everything Ekberg promised it would be. As detailed in the latest Forza Motorsport Week in Review, this one is in honour of the upcoming return of the Forza Racing Championship, and it has been named the ‘#ForzaRC Ladder Challenge,’ but instead of one target on the leaderboard to beat – there’s five.

Five Turn 10 employees have volunteered to the Bounty Hunter this month in Forza Motorsport 7, including Jon Knoles (GT: JONK1969) and Elliott Lyons (GT: RBW Triton) from the Turn 10 design team, Jennifer Lane (GT: ShmooGnu) and Garrett Huxtable (GT: Gr1malian) from the Engagement team, and finally, Community Manager Brian Ekberg (GT: Mechberg). You’ll be hot-lapping the full Sebring circuit in daytime conditions in the #3 Chevy C7.R race car.

With five Bounty Targets to hunt down, there’s even more rewards to unlock from this event. However, as always, fans can unlock a car by simply participating – the long-awaited 2016 Koenigsegg Regera will be available to everyone who sets a time on the March Bounty Hunter event.

Don’t miss out, and have a look at all the other prizes on offer below:

  • ‍Participation Reward – 2016 Koenigsegg Regera
  • Beat JONK1969 – Punk Rocker Driver Gear
  • Beat Mechberg – 1963 VW Type 2 De Luxe
  • Beat Gr1malian – 1981 VW Scirocco S
  • Beat ShmooGnu – 2012 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series Forza Edition
  • Beat RBW Triton – MotoRacer Driver Gear

The #ForzaRC Ladder Challenge is currently live in Forza Motorsport 7 and can be found in the all-new ForzaRC channel within Rivals. All five Bounty Targets will be setting their initial times on the leaderboard during today’s Forza Friday livestream on Mixer, so be sure to tune in when the show begins at 3pm PDT (6pm EST, 10pm GMT) later today.

Each of the five Bounty Hunter targets will be on the livestream, offering their predictions on how they’ll match up against the community as they set their initial lap times. It’s sure to be a lot of fun, so make sure you don’t miss it.

The Forza Racing Championship 2018 will kick off with the Pre-Seasonal Invitational on March 24th in Seattle, Washington – the home of Forza Motorsport developer Turn 10 Studios. Microsoft and Gfinity have invited 19 drivers to compete at the event – and you can find the car and track combos that fans will be voting on here. FullThrottle will also be joining them in Seattle and we’ll have all our coverage here on the website, as well as behind-the-scenes posts on our Twitter and Instagram accounts. Be sure to follow so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!
