Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon August 1-8th

This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started August 1st at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on August 8th.

Sorry for the delay on this one folks, I was out vacationing and taking in the great outdoors! At any rate, another week and here we are with the Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon August 1-8th event. This week you can earn an extra 100 (or 200 with the VIP house) #Forzathon Points — this time in 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport! This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started August 1st at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on August 8th.

UPDATED (08/04/2019 10:30 p.m. PT): Corrected the Festival Playlist and added Summer Racing Championship events. Not sure why but my PC was showing outdated events instead of the current one!

ORIGINAL ARTICLE:

Before we get into the #Forzathon event though, Series 12 brings a couple of new Showcase Remixes as well as the instructions for the LEGO Speed Champions Barn Find and a number of fixes. As for the Showcase Remixes, you can take on Assault on the Control Room (the UNSC Fleetcom training exercise) in winter as well as take on the Delta-Wing Showcase in Spring. As for the Barn Find, Playground Games did spoil it but we’re not going to so get out there, get racing, and find a pretty sweet LEGO Barn Find!

If you haven’t purchased the game yet, you can do so from the button below or play it through the Xbox Game Pass. Speaking of, if you haven’t upgraded to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate yet, there’s still time to upgrade your entire current Xbox Live Gold and/or Game Pass (up to 36 months) for only $1.
