ForzaRC Pro-Am Invites Competitive Drivers To The Bounty Hunter Fun

Series 1 of the 2018 Forza Racing Championship wrapped up this past weekend at the Seattle Playoffs – with Noble’s newest recruit ‘b0x’ taking the lead and bringing home $15,000. It was a close finish between him and ForzaRC Season 3 Champion AMS RoadRunner, with the final race on Le Mans being one of the most tense, surprising and exciting in ForzaRC history.

However, the fun doesn’t end there as the latest Bounty Hunter event in Forza Motorsport 7 has gone live with the official ForzaRC Pro-Am.

For the first time in Forza Motorsport history, Turn 10 has invited ForzaRC drivers to the Bounty Hunter fun and these include the following names:

The ForzaRC Pro-Am will see drivers in the June Spotlight car added this month to Forza Motorsport 7, the 1982 Ford #6 Zakspeed Roush Mustang IMSA GT on Road America. The event began on Monday with a special livestream featuring the six participating ForzaRC drivers who set their first lap times in the game on behalf of their teams.

In another Bounty Hunter first, each ForzaRC driver will be teamed up with members of the Forza community as they drive their way towards winning a bunch of in-game rewards in Forza Motorsport 7.

Whilst this is still a Rivals event with the goal of each player being to set their fastest lap-time possible, with the usual slate of rewards based on where you finish on the leaderboard as an individual driver, things become more interesting with how Turn 10 is scoring the team competition. Each Forza RC driver will be captain of one team, and the community will be organized into these teams alphabetically, based on their Xbox Live Gamertag.

Teams were chosen by ForzaRC drivers on Monday’s livestream. These teams were pulled from a hat and the respective driver was then named as the captain of that team. They also chose their rewards for each team and set their initial lap times during the show. You can find the teams and their captains listed below:

  • Team 1 – A – C – Captain: G2 Laige
  • Team 2 – D – G – Captain: FH4 Venom
  • Team 3 – H – L – Captain: TX3 Wesley
  • Team 4 – M – Q – Captain: TX3 Lightning
  • Team 5 – R – S – Captain: Noble b0x
  • Team 6 – T- Z – Captain: TX3 Hard BR

All six teams will be competing with one another and scoring will be based on the average lap time of each team. Whilst those times aren’t viewable in-game, Turn 10 has promised to share regular team standing updates on the official Forza Motorsport Twitter handle to keep the community up-to-date with where their team stands.

Based on your leaderboard position – both as an individual driver, as part of a team, and the final position of your Team Leader, you will unlock a selection of in-game rewards for Forza Motorsport 7. There will be up to 16 rewards available to players, and ForzaRC drivers selected the prizes they want associated with their teams. You’ll have multiple ways to earn these rewards, and the first is based on how your associated team finishes on the event leaderboard:

  • Team 1 ForzaRC Team Reward – 2014 Ford FPV Limited Edition Pursuit Ute Forza Edition
  • Team 2 ForzaRC Team Reward – 2013 Dodge Dart GT
  • Team 3 ForzaRC Team Reward – Unnatural Pairings Driver Gear
  • Team 4 ForzaRC Team Reward – 50,000 Credits
  • Team 5 ForzaRC Team Reward – 1972 Chevrolet VH Valiant Charger R/T E49
  • Team 6 ForzaRC Team Reward – 1998 Subaru Impreza 22B STi Forza Edition

Turn 10 says that rewards also cumulative, with members of the #1 Team on the leaderboards winning Reward #1, as well as Rewards #2-6.

Rewards based on the final finishing positions of each ForzaRC Team Captain will also be rewarded, and these include the following:

  • Team 1 ForzaRC Captain Reward – Motion Capture Driver Gear
  • Team 2 ForzaRC Captain Reward – 2016 W Motors Lykan Hypersport
  • Team 3 ForzaRC Captain Reward – 2016 Mazda MX-5 Forza Edition
  • Team 4 ForzaRC Captain Reward – 2014 Chevrolet Super Sport Forza Edition
  • Team 5 ForzaRC Captain Reward – 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8
  • Team 6 ForzaRC Captain Reward – 50,000 Credits

Turn 10 will also reward drivers based on their individual placement on the leaderboard, and the breakdown for this is as follows:

  • Top 10 Percentile – 25,000 Credits
  • Top 25 Percentile – 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series
  • Top 75 Percentile – 2012 Ferrari F12berlinetta

As always, these rewards will be cumulative as well. Finally, everyone who sets a time in the ForzaRC Pro-Am Rivals event will win the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG Forza Edition just for taking part. No matter your skill level, there’s plenty of prizes to be had from this one-of-a-kind Bounty Hunter event, so be sure to set a lap time on it before it concludes in July.

Whether you’re looking to dominate the leaderboard as an individual driver or you want to cheer your ForzaRC team captain on in the hopes of unlocking a bunch of exclusive cars and rewards in Forza Motorsport 7, the ForzaRC Pro-Am Bounty Hunter event is not to be missed.

You can set a time today on the ForzaRC Pro-Am Bounty Hunter event under the official ForzaRC Rivals channel in Forza Motorsport 7. For even more, be sure to check out the official ForzaRC Pro-Am Bounty Hunter livestream, available on-demand on the official Forza Motorsport Mixer channel, and if that isn’t enough for you, the ForzaRC John Hindhaugh Le Mans Challenge also has a host of exclusive rewards to be unlocked this month as well.
