For some reason i cant start to make progess on the Series 11 Summer #Forzathon weekly challenge. I take a retro supercar out but it doesnt count towards any progress. Tried 6 different cars from 4 different manufacturers. Anyone else having this problem?

Try rebooting to see if that solves it. Also try triggering a save by completing a race event.

It would seem that people quitting the Trial no longer gives the AI team points. This is a MASSIVE change, but isn't noted anywhere that I've seen. Makes the Trial far easier.

Can confirm, having the same problem with final challenge (drive 15 miles). Neither rebooting, nor doing a race/event fixes it.

Please ADD more SOLO championships so we can reach 80% without having to play with idiots who are just out to grief. I don't care if the championships that are added are set to unbeatable, having to rely on other players is beyond frustrating. I just want to race and unlock cars, i don't want to have to get lucky or search forums just so i can complete a race which i could complete on my own in five minutes.

Daily challenges and seasonal stuff isn't showing up for me at all. Even restarting the game multiple times hasn't fixed it.

Try lowering your frame rate from performance 60 to quality 30.

I did all of the "adjustments" to my graphics quality and still had to do the hwy run close to 25 times at over 230 mph just to get 15 miles out of it. A lot of the PC players are having this issue. Bet bet is to grab the EB110 at swap the Veyron engine into it, run up and down the hwy at max speed and see if there was any progress each run.

Really easy Championships this time around.

Here are the cars and tunes that I used to win them on "Unbeatable" difficulty. All tunes are shared in my storefront.

C600 Trial: '77 Ford Escort RS1800 "Road & Dirt Speed" tune

B700 FWD Championship: My '07 Honda Civic and '83 VW Golf GTi "Road" tunes both work for all tracks.

A800 Retro Muscle Games: '10 Ford Crown Victoria "Rally Playground" Tune

S900 Italy Championship: '14 Lamborghini Huracan "Road Speed" tune. I imagine my "Grip" tune can beat it as well.

S900 Super GT Championship: '17 Ferrari GTC4Lusso "FAST Road Racer" tune. This car is a handling monster.

Drive a Retro Supercar for a total distance of 15 miles

Why would they include this type of challenge when so many players affected by the issue with 0.0 miles showing as being driven.

Had this issue last playlist, raised a support ticket, no response, no fix, no 100% completion (Due to this specific issue).

And yes, tried all the previous mentioned steps to try and work around, frame rate, reboot, bla bla bla

Is it just me or is the daily . take the lead bugged does not seem to be triggering.
Closely overtake while racing for 2 great pass skills in the festival playlist . Update worked in ranked team adventure.

It's not hard to win The Trial, but if anyone wants to try it with something particularly good, I found I was winning the last race by over 30 seconds, i.e. no AI or human was finishing before the timer expired. I used the '73 Ford Escort, my tune is shared as "AWD C600 Rd/Dirt". As it seemed particularly good for it, I used it to set a world record in the new rivals feature as well:

The whole Top Gear thing can literally go die in a fire. I wiped out every other thing on that list except for the Forzathon dailies and this story. If this thing messes up my chances of getting the Maserati MC12 FE because it skews the percentage points for season completion I will literally start playing with a cheap 3rd party controller so I won't feel bad when I smash it into a crater.

Rant over.

Top gear was a breeze, you have all month to complete it. Took about an hour.

Good catch! And that's definitely the case - I checked footage of my trial runs and in all 3 the picture is consistent - players leaving mid-race don't score points for drivatars!

For this weeks race events I liked the Trial the best. Used upgraded Volvo for that, tune shared. Our team got all the races. I got those 650 points in the first and the last race.

Did challenges on Pro.

I'm not big to S1+. Did Forza Italia with Lambo Spyder, which I felt was quite slippery and came second in first race. Installed racing tyres and won the rest.

For Full Throttle I used Ferrari California T I built for some past Trial. I should've used that in Forza Italia too, easy wins. Tune is shared.

2001 Acura Integra Type-R with race tyres which turned out to be surprisingly fun in FF Champ.

Used Porsche Carrera GT for #Weekly Forzathon speed trap challenge with some radical upgrading. Tried earlier with Bugatti EB110 SS which was no good.

Built 2000 Ford SVT Cobra R for Playground games which turned out to be pretty good. Don't recall if I shared the tune.

With Top Gear story introduced earlier this week I get that there weren't custom routes in this weeks playlist but I must say I missed them. Bit too many races on default routes or something. I had Alien Morph Suit, Maserati MC12 FE and Ferrari 360 CS already.

Trial was good but otherwise this was the most boring weekly playlist so far.
