Prague Challenge reopening next week, plus new Endurance Hopper

From today's Week in Review:
We’ve got more good news ahead: First of all the Grand Tour of Prague will return and, if all goes to plan, it will happen next week. Just as with our first go-around, the goal will be to complete the race in the Grand Tour of Prague lobby and drive at least 130 miles in the event. Do so and you’ll earn a new Badge & Title in Forza 5.

Finally, the Grand Tour of Prague will also kick off our new Endurance Racing hopper. This is something you guys have been asking for for a long time in Forza 5 and we are happy to have it nearly ready for primetime.

For more information about the Challenge and multiplayer hopper for the Grand Tour of Prague, see the following:

Prague Challenge news and new Endurance Hoppers
As we promised last week, the new Endurance Hoppers are now live in Forza 5. You can find the new Endurance channel by going to Multiplayer from the main menu and then clicking the RB button to “Endurance Racing.” There are three lobbies to choose from – ranging from A-Class to X-Class, and all feature longer races, averaging in length between 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!

As of the publishing time of this edition of the Week in Review, we do not have an update for our Grand Tour of Prague. We are still working on re-introducing that hopper (and its associated challenge) in the game. Once we have news to report, I will be sure and let you know, so stay tuned!

Forza Rewards - score display and redeeming via Forzamotorsport.net
  • The Forza Rewards menu at Forzamotorsport.net has now been updated to display your Forza Rewards score for Fast & Furious (500pts; Xbox One version only). The new maximum score for Tier 7 is 12,000 across all included games. April's Rewards will be available in two days and can be redeemed either via the website or the Forza Hub.
  • Turn 10 is addressing some issues with Forza Rewards and the website:

As for the scoring being inconsistent, I've had a look and do see a problem with the detail records where we read from for the website for some players. It does look like your overall score is correct though. We'll have a look at this and get it sorted out.

Forza Rewards issues progress
August 24, posted in the Forza Rewards FAQ:

FH1 and FM4 credits are now flowing at good rate. There were a couple of issues clogging up the system that slowed our credit sender to a crawl for those titles. These should be fully caught up by this weekend, including all credits for folks who haven't seen them all summer. As long as you've been redeeming, we have those credits and will get them sent.

DLC and Achievement fixes are being worked on and should get deployed soon(tm). These are a bit different from the other game stats, which is why I keep talking about them separately.

Other stats being stuck is a bit of a separate issue that is being looked at as well. We should start to see all titles updating again shortly.
