This month brings big changes to the Forza Motorsport 7 #Forzathon format. In case you missed the news, not only has Turn 10 Studios brought them in-house, but they’ve also changed it to a (hopefully) standard weekly three challenges. The first will have one task, the second two, and the third three.
In addition, because they brought it in-house, the #Forzathon challenges are no longer tied to Xbox Achievements meaning you won’t get your 0 Gamerscore achievement for these anymore. That being said, last week’s #Forzathon was the third on the new system and it still seems to run a lot smoother with tasks popping as soon as you completed them without having to finish another event or reload the game after each one.
At any rate, here we are with the Forza Motorsport 7 #Forzathon June 29 – July 5th event in which you can snag yourself three vehicles from Abarth, Holden, and Tamo. This #Forzathon event started today at 10:00 a.m. PT and closes at 11:59 p.m. PT on July 5th. Check out the complete challenge list and rewards below for the newly added challenges.

New Car Smell
Looks like another easy week of tasks. Start off by heading over to Single Player > Free Play mode. Set up a 30-second timed race at your favourite track, set Drivatars to 0, hop into a 2018 model year vehicle and win 3 races by letting the timer run out and repeating the race twice more. Once complete, you’ll get the 2013 Abarth Punto Supersport.
Keep It Together
Once you’ve completed the New Car Smell Challenge, change the track to Sonoma Raceway Full Circuit, select Drift as the race mode, one lap, and drift back and forth making sure you get at least 5,000 drift points. You’ll want to keep it a clean lap as well to ensure it registers. Change the track to Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and switch the weather up to Rain. Get 4,000 drift points in a single lap here and you’ll snag that 1977 Holden Torana A9X Forza Edition.
Don’t Skip It
For the last set of Challenges, change the track to Lime Rock, again with a timed race set to 30 seconds and let the timer run out to win the race. Select the same track, this time switching up the car division to NASCAR. Select a NASCAR vehicle and, again, let the timer run out. The last challenge is the longest of this weeks tasks. Set up Lime Rock once again, choose the Full Circuit Alt track, set the race to 3 laps, change the car division to Sport Touring Icons, hop in one and finish your three laps. Once completed, the 2018 Tamo Racemo is yours!
If you want to speed things up a bit, make sure you choose a 2018 car for the Keep It Together and Don’t Skip It challenges where possible. At the least, you should get two of the three races needed to complete New Car Smell done (three if the Drift Events count as race wins but that’s doubtful).
All said and done, it really shouldn’t take you more than 15-20 minutes from start to finish… personally, I’d like to see more challenge in these “challenges.” What about you?
