Just downloaded the update and noticed a new set of 15 bucket lists events are now ready to go - challenges that apparently are based on scores achieved by the development team. Subsequently, Turn 10 has published an article which you can find here.

To access these events, you need to go to the 'Progress' tab, select the 'Bucket List' tile and be sure to activate the third set of events, at which point you will be able to locate on the map.

Also noted is that several of the cars used are DLC - but you don't need to own the DLC to run the challenges. I guess if all the car data is there from the updates anyway, may as well put it to use!

That's definitely a smart way to tease DLC. =) Always liked how TDU2 did that back in the day.

Anyone noticed that #11 says "Speed through Nice at 100 Mph in a G-Shock 370Z ´10"?

As a notorious "must have all extra and promo dlc cars" type of guy, I´m still curious where we can get that car.

@nyx You don't need to own the cars to take the challenges.

I know, but I´d love to add it to my garage nonetheless.

It's a great move to let people try out the DLC before making up a mind to buy them. Very good idea. They appear to be thinking about this very carefully. Well done Playground/Turn 10/Microsoft!
Now, let's see how much trouble i have doing these ones after the first lot cost me a good chunk of sanity on occasion!

True. But it seems that it won't be applicable for future DLC; so, I suppose this may be some sort of trial run.

That G-Shock one was a pain, knocked the rest out. Ready for the next 15 :)

I didn't actually find too many overly difficult, either I'm very skilled (Unlikely) or I got lucky :P

The M4 one took me the most attempts, AIs kept getting in the way

G_shock and 200 mph in a Hyuara are impossible...Traffic and turns make the challenge too hard...I gave up

In the Hyuara you just need to work out how to carry as much speed through the left hander as you are getting closer to the trap. Start wide, brake slighlty and turn keeping it as smooth as possible. When you are no longer at risk of running wide get back on the gas and stay there.

Haven't been on today. How bad are these new ones? Should I just order a new controller now? Lol

I've tried the first 4 so far, the hardest one by far is that Mustang at the docks. I haven't beaten it yet, any tips?

Yep. Look they are doable but most people seem to be finding one or two a little tough, at least as tough as the Lancia but for me the main issue was traffic rather than trees but I still have a few to do.

Just like the Atom one, there is an open area to the west.. towards the row of round tanks. You can drift like crazy there, and there are cones that count as "wreckage"

The Huayra was just short of impossible. Finally got it at try #30 something. Maybe #40 something. You can't make ANY mistakes, and like SatNiteEduardo said, brake minimally. I'd really like to see a PG member do that. See if they really did hit 200mph in it, and if they did, what route. I got over 200mph in the McLaren P1 there, but I didn't take that route.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to pick up a prescription of blood pressure pills I didn't need before I attempted this challenge.

Drift between the jumps, that way you keep up the skill chain. Also get the perk that allows a skill multiplier of 6.

I don't think the Huarya challenge was as hard as some are making it.. you pretty much just go fast and take one turn correctly:

EDIT: I can't help but wonder if those having trouble are using automatic transmission. There would be a shift right before the finish line if you do.
