In case you missed it, #Forzathon has changed pretty dramatically in the latest iteration of the game. Check out our Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon primer to make sense of the new #Forzathon format if you’re not already familiar with it.
At any rate, here we are with a week that showcases the Ford Capri MkI! The Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon November 1-8th event gives you a chance to earn an extra 100 #Forzathon Points. This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started today at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on November 8th. In addition to the four new #Forzathon events, there are also a number of new August Season races and PR stunts!
A True Professional #Forzathon
Check out the complete Challenge list below:
- Pony Club: Own and drive the highly coveted 1973 Ford Capri RS3100, the car you always promised yourself!
- For the Road Ahead: Take some time to appreciate the Ford Capri MkI by taking it out for a 10-mile drive.
- Fastback Coupé: Use the brawn of the Ford Capri MkI to earn a total of 9 stars from Speed Zones.
- Bold Moves: Break the mold with the Ford Capri MkI and earn 8 Great Skill Chains.
NOTE: These challenges must be done in the order they appear in the list above. Also, the 1973 Ford Capri RS3100 is the same as t he Ford Capri MkI listed in the other challenges.
Simple start, simply purchase (if you don’t already own one) the rare 1973 Ford Capri RS3100 for 55,000 CR. Once purchased, hop into it and you’ll complete the Pony Club challenge. You’ll also probably want to upgrade it to at least the top of A class (59,150 CR) for some of the other challenges. You could do S1 class as well but the auto-upgrade only gets you an S1 803 for 59,900 CR so you’re better off with an A 800 if you plan on racing it as well. Of course, there are S1 900 tunes you can download and install for extra credits as well if you’re having issues with the Speed Zones further done the road.
For the Road Ahead
For this challenge, you’ll just need to drive around for 10 miles (16.1 km). Of course, anywhere on the map is game…
Once you’ve driven your obligatory 10 miles, head to the map, filter out by Speed Zones, and either get 3 stars on three of them or a total of 9 stars from various ones. If you find an easy one for you, simply redo it a few times to get the required stars.
Finally, head to the airstrip or the dunes on the east side of the map and chain together some skills. Once you’ve earned 8 Great Skill Chains, the weekly 100 #Forzathon Points will be yours (200 if you own the VIP house as mentioned in our primer linked above). NOTE: an Ultimate Skill Chain counts as 3 Great Skill Chains so chain three of those together and you’ll be done in a snap! h/t Kronos Z for that tip.
The August #Forzathon Shop has also been updated. This week, you can snag the 1969 Chevrolet Nova Super Sport 396 Forza Edition for 250 #Forzathon Points and the common 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker for 175 #FP. Also up for grabs are a pair of DotD tees for 75 #FP a piece. As usual, you can pick up Wheelspins for 40 #FP or Super Wheelspins for 150 #FP each.
