As with previous #Forzathon events, most of these can be completed in Free Play mode and setting the number of Drivatars to 0 to guarantee a win. Unless otherwise specified, set the race to a Timed Race for 30 seconds and let the timer run out to complete/win the race.

Slipping Into the Holidays

For the first challenge, head over to a Drift Event, set the timer to 8 minutes or so to get a good couple laps in, set the track to Bernese Alps, and drift your way to a score of 10,000. Once you’ve done so, you’ll snag 45,000 Credits.

Tis the Season

Next, set it back to a Timed Race, 30 seconds, and set the circuit to Maple Valley. Let the timer run out and you’re ready to proceed.

Once that’s done, hop into a higher tier speed car and select a night track (we’ll update once we’ve found the best one). Set it to one lap, make sure you hit 220 mph (354 km/h) to finish this one up.

Once you’ve completed these tasks, you’ll be able to suit up in your new Gingerbread Man Driver Gear.

A Red Nose

A fairly easy set here. Sticking with the Timed Race, hop into a Ferrari and let the timer run out.

Next, hop into a 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans AM GTA (rent or buy it if you don’t have it already) and let the timer run out again.

As mentioned in previous posts, I prefer the Dubai Mountain Circuit for drifts. Set the race type to Drift, set the timer to 8 minutes or so to get in a couple laps, and hop in a Lancia. Get a score of 7,000 and you’ll be ready to move on to the next set of challenges.

Once you’ve fulfilled these three tasks, you’ll be able to drive away in a 1957 Ferrari 250 California.

Spinning All the Tires

Oh look, another Drift Event! If you’ve just completed the previous challenge, re-do the race in an AWD car and get a score of 9,000. Once you’re done, you’ll get some spiffy new Crash Dummy Driver Gear.

A New Year

This pair of challenges will probably take the longest of the set. Start out with another Timed Race, hop in a ForzaGT car, set the circuit to Hockenheimring, and let the timer run out.

Next, set the race type to Circuit, 5 laps, and choose the Circuit of the Americas West. Race around the track 5 times in a Sport GT Icons division car to complete this challenge set.

Once completed, you’ll be awarded 60,000 Credits.

Driving Through the Years

This final set of challenges is easy enough and can all be done with Timed Races. First, hop in a car from 1974 and let the timer run out. Next, head over to Mugello Autodromo Interazionale, hop in a car from 1990, and let the timer run out. Finally, hop in a car from 2015 and, once again, let the timer run out.

Once you’ve finished up this set of three challenges you’ll be rewarded with a 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR.

Combining Challenges

Finally, you’ll be able to complete some of the challenges this go around. Depending on what cars you choose, you should be able to double up on some of the Drift Events as well as the specific year cars. When doing the other challenges, be sure to keep an eye out for cars from 1974, 1990, and 2015 to double up there (be sure that you do them in order as well).

This #Forzathon, it should take you around 60 minutes to complete the challenges and snag your bonuses for the next two weeks.
