Is the Centenario an Auto Show car? Not sure I've acquired that one yet; have to check when I get to the XB1X later.

Do you mean autoshow? Yes, I believe it is, for something like 2.5million CR.

Before the screaming starts:

I found that the Lambo Centenario is ideal for this trial, I've shared my tune called 'Lamborghini Cup' which was already tuned previously for winter racing.

You need as a team to win the first two races as the Marathon is a killer, the drivatars have no concept of driving on icy roads in this one!

Slow down into corners and throttle about 75% to avoid skidding out of corners.. the one important thing though, don't ram your team mates..! The icy conditions and snow makes recovery near impossible and your result in an overall team loss!

Drive accordingly, and keep to your own limits, there are 2 corners in which drivatars do skid out on all 3 races, which makes catching up to them easy, as long as you drive as said according to conditions, remember though they recover a lot quicker than you can!

Top speed is not recommended for this trial, concentration and team play is.

The Aventador FE is a wheelspin car that I already have, and have sold a couple dupes at auction. Though I think the perk tree might have a cash perk in it, if I remember right, but aside from that, no real reason to get busted up doing S2 class street races in the snow.

I think I'll just bag the 50% prize and call it a week.

The Trial is easy in the Centenario, if I could just find team mates who weren't useless. It's a shame an achievement is tied to the randomness of team mates.

My tips... if you find that you are useless, leave so you don't prevent your team from winning. That's the number one tip.

I'd jump up and down about winning these cars just to flip them for some extra CR but I made it to 999,999,999 on Sunday. So now I guess my goal is to reach my 10th star...
Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track.

Just did it the hard way by winning the 3rd race... I was a long way ahead of the drivatars.

  • I don't think the figure of 195 mph is correct - probably 95 mph (152.9 kmh).

    Can someone tell me what is up with team mates just purposely making you crash?


    Do people really not know what the word TEAM means?

    Thanks, I eventually got it to work and that was the first thing I tried. When that didn't work I tried restarting the game, then I restarted the Xbox, and then I did a hard restart. They all failed and then I signed up here to post the question.

    Finally out of frustration I did a second hard restart of the Xbox and it acknowledged it.

    Just an awful choice for trial, snow in the dark in S2 with buildings sticking out into the road. Yea awesome. Done but I was useless. Last week was S2 as well. Enough.

    Bizarrely, despite knowing most tracks off by heart, I have absolutely no recollection of the Holyrood street race in the trial! Managed to take a wrong turn halfway through on my first attempt!

    Decent trial I thought. I used the Sesto (slowbakedpanda’s tune) but note it’s set up for snow. That’s probably not needed for races 1 and 2, neither of which have snow on the road, so race tyres probably work. Did enable me to win the Marathon by over 30 seconds both attempts though. Will try again with other options - doubt the Sesto is quickest but thought I’d try something I rarely drive.

    S2 STREET RACES SHOULD BE BANNED!

    No fun at all for the average player as it's just a ram-fest between team mates in the early stages, which then leads to any slight chance of winning being instantly wiped out completely.

    How come the entire drivatar team always start up front? Should the field not be staggered for fairness?

    How come there is always the odd AI traffic coming in the opposite direction right on the driving line mid-bend?

    .........and don't even mention the impossible physics the Drivatars can conjure up and the way they can avoid a pile-up with AI traffic when humans cannot!

    Over 10 attempts now!

    The best position I've personally achieved overall is 4th (1st of my team) and I've not been on a single team where any of my team have come 1st.

    There is something very wrong with this weeks trial!

    I have never been so stressed and swore at the TV in months! Seriously, do the developers love messing with people's stress levels/mental well-being?

    What really gets me about having a street race as part of the seasonal events is, in the fiction of the game, street races are supposed to be this unsanctioned underground side scene that's not part of the festival, and that Kira pretends not to know about. But whenever they put them up as a seasonal, it's Kira giving the voice over. Isn't she supposed to be turning a blind eye to these?

    I believe they skip the voice over for the Trial anyway, but where it's also supposed to be a sanctioned Horizon championship, (again, within the fiction of the game) why does it include street races at all?

    I know I'm overthinking this, but I'm bored at work between cases, and since we're talking about it anyway...

    Thank you buddy!


    I'll be doing the trial when I get home but Holyrood is one of the trickiest of all the street races. Going up through the mountains is where your memory will be tested lol

    This ^^^^^^

    Got extremely lucky with trial, everyone just left after the first race, after that it was just walk in the park and ended up winning both remaining races.
