Turn 10 Studios has revealed the ForzaRC Tanner Foust Challenge – debuting in Forza Motorsport 7 on Wednesday, April 11th. As revealed in the latest Forza Motorsport Week in Review, this event follows the recent ForzaRC Bounty Hunter Ladder Challenge and will see players putting their skills to the test against one of the best drivers in the real-world, Tanner Foust.

You’ll likely know Tanner Foust for his accomplishments as both a race competitor and stunt driver. Over the course of his career, Foust has earned championship victories in multiple racing disciples, including rallycross, drifting, and as a four-times X Games gold medallist. He’s also appeared as a stunt driver in a few Hollywood blockbusters and has set world records.

In 2011, he teamed up with Hot Wheels to make a 332-foot ramp-to-ramp leap in a truck at the Indianapolis 500. Foust has also appeared in a number of television shows, including the American Top Gear series, as well as his ‘Life in the Foust Lane’ series on YouTube.

With the ForzaRC Tanner Foust Challenge, the Forza community will be taking on this leading driver as the entire Forza Motorsport 7 fanbase is challenged to beat his time on the event leaderboard – like other Bounty Hunter events. Players will be taking Foust’s race car, the Volkswagen Beetle GRC, to the Dubai Mountain Circuit for this Rivals event once it opens on April 11th.

Everyone who beats Foust’s final time will win the exclusive 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am SD-455. Come within two seconds of his final time and you’ll unlock the Disco Driver Gear suit. As usual, there’s also a participation prize for simply competing in the event, and this time it’s the 1995 Volkswagen Corrado VR6, which will be sent out to all players who set a time in the event.

You can add Tanner’s Gamertag on Xbox Live today so you’re prepared for the challenge come next week. His Gamertag is ‘SweeTFoust34,’ so throw him a friend request and follow his progress on the event leaderboard. Look out for an update on the ForzaRC Tanner Foust Challenge in next week’s edition of the Forza Motorsport Week in Review.

 

Be sure to check out the above video from Tanner Foust in which he briefly discusses the event and reveals why it’ll be better than the Bounty Hunter challenge featuring IndyCar driver Josef Newgarden from last year. Perhaps it’s time we also had another event featuring Newgarden in Forza Motorsport 7?
