Time for a month-long “Spectacular Journey”

Posted on

After a bit of a mess last month with the Forza Motorsport 7 #Forzathon events, Turn 10 is back with a month-long, six challenge series. The FM7 #Forzathon March event lasts from March 1st through the 30th and has five vehicle rewards and one driver gear reward up for grabs.

In addition, Turn 10 and Hyundai have a Rivals competition going on right now as well. The contest is only open to residents of the U.S., but everyone who participates in the Rivals event can snag the Hyundai Driver Gear.

This #Forzathon event started today, March 1st at 10:00 a.m. PT and closes at (presumably) 10:00 am PT on March 30th. Check out the complete task list and rewards below for the newly added challenges. Of course, we’ll update this as we complete/find out what the remaining tasks for each challenge are as we progress through them.

NOTE: There have been some issues in the past with challenges that don’t pop all the time and some users have found that quitting the game and restarting it popped the previous challenges. Complete a lap on a Free Play race after completing a Forzathon challenge also may cause it to pop. We’re not sure if this issue has been fixed yet so if you have issues with challenges registering you can always try restarting the game or alternating tasks to get the previously completed task to pop. It does seem that this issue is mostly fixed, although last month I still personally experienced the odd issue with tasks not updating properly.

As always, you can finish these tasks in Free Play mode. For starters, hop into an Exotic GT Division car, create a 3 lap race at a Monza track, and you should be able to finish up three tasks at once: complete 3 laps at Monza, complete a race at Monza, and win a race. If Monza has a night option, you can finish that one up as well at the same time, assuming you win the race of course.

Once you’ve done that, hop in a Vintage Sport Coupe Division car and start a new race with 5 laps, I like to pick the short tracks at Rio de Janeiro for quick finishes. Finally, hop into the 1973 Ford XB Falcon GT, reduce the number of laps to 3 and you’ll be finished the first set of tasks.

As mentioned above, stay tuned as we’ll be fleshing out the rest of the list shortly!
