Reminders and Tips
For any case of the game not behaving as expected (such as an event not unlocking), do the following before posting:

  1. Double check to see if your car actually meets the event requirements both in car model and PI Class.
  2. Reboot your device to see if that clears the issue.
  3. Read the Known Issues list and other articles at Forza Support for possible explanation or solutions.
  4. If your issue is not listed or solved by anything on Forza Support, use the link at the bottom of any article to Submit a Ticket so the team can log and investigate your issue.

Really enjoyed the EventLab one, an unusual but nice change of pace from the norm.

I suspect the speed zone may cause a few problems this week, 82mph in a C class pickup is very harsh compared to what the seasonal PR stunts are normally like, I used the Scout with Rocklxd’s tune.

Edit: Trial went unbelievably smoothly, won 2-0 easily and no funny business from any teammates anywhere.

I used the Group A Escort but the older Escort looks the best choice, 1 guy in that walked to 1st place quickly at the start of both races and stayed there.

Your eyes may get a workout in the first race though.

Quite enjoyed the Eventlab tbh. Nice change and not really hard just some quirks.

Speed Zone wasn’t too bad. Used a tuned F150 with a slight upgrade. You can get a decent run up from afar and cut a few corners without failing the zone.

Still trying on the trial. 3 sessions and other players ramming off the track or just flying off at high speed. Will try again later.

Was being stupid on the treasure chest when I realised you needed the Bel Air to do the 25 air skills!

Not even sure what just happened on that ‘upgrade 2 exit’ event.

Jumped in a focus rs, finally found rocklxd when searching for a tune and used that (and added them to my followed list). Entered the challenge, there were no other vehicles on the starting grid drove a couple of turns, a message popped up saying take the jump when you have upgraded or something along them lines but I just carried on up up ramp and I placed 1st.

90’s Icon | Own and drive the 1992 Ford Escort RS Cosworth = bugged, did the 3 races and it still sign 0/3

Only sprint races and not circuit races. Try again and complete three sprint dirt races. For me no problem at all.

if it works they should have wrote in the description about that, in italian language just says about " do 3 offroad races "…

In English it says do 3 dirt trails.

so another problem about language translation as was in other series…

Is the Treasure Hunt still broken this week?? When I click on it, it just goes to the map and doesn’t say anything?

Edit: found post on this topic, going to try the air skills

Well, that Eventlab is a complete waste of our time. Tell you to pick up chests that don’t exist, then just jump through a target and that is it?? What was the point?

Tip: there’s a maze of walls and structures around the destination point. Follow the arrow signs.

Thought I’d point out the Bunny Hopping daily later in the week just says ‘Airfield UTV Cup’ in-game, even though I enjoyed the Tour in the VW I’m glad it isn’t that again, sounds like it will be an Event Lab creation.

I want back on it then found the three chests. They are hidden. In three different zones around the ramp. You have to go up a load of levels made out of wooden planks. One is at ground level hidden behind like a maze.
Took me a while but as there were no other players I still came 1st.

Take your '57 Bel Air to the runway/drag strip in the south. Do 25 air skills (there are heaps of ramps). The treasure chest itself is on top of a broken wing with two engines south of the runway proper and west of the barn find.

Ed: I did not post in this thread and I am totally unimpressed with whoever moved it without at least informing me.

I presume the idea of the event lab is that you take a stock Focus and need to find the treasure chests to “upgrade” to be able to reach the target. As it is, I think an A800 tuned Focus will do it without needing to collect the chests.

The stock Focus can manage to hit the target fine…it struggles getting up some of the ramps to get to the chests though…was doing 8mph at one stage!! It was an interesting diversion, albeit saying you need to get “upgrades” is a bit meh given you don’t get any upgrades!

Seems I can do no wrong today, played the Eliminator for the objective, got the Evo X almost straight away, evaded some annoying prat who was following me endlessly for at least 5 minutes straight before they hit a pile of rocks and I challenged a Levante, won and took that, got challenged by an MG 6R4 who I can only think was James May as they got lost in a sub 900m long race through a few trees from the airfield then won the whole thing with the Metro despite taking a poor choice of route up the mountain.

Not read the whole thread so sorry if I’ve missed it but I created a super 7 so you can take a picture of the peel in the correct area without having to claim it.

Code: 172 667 126

Hope it helps a little.

Edit: Just tested this on another account and it doesn’t seem to work. It did work on another. Can you guys please advise. If its not working I will delete.
