Have you ever dreamt of putting your skills in Forza Motorsport 7 up against one of the best real-world drivers in the world? Your chance begins next week, with the ForzaRC Tanner Foust Challenge, which launches in Forza Motorsport 7 starting on April 11.

You probably know Foust from any number of his amazing accomplishments as both a race competitor and stunt driver. During his career Foust has earned championships in multiple racing disciplines including rallycross, drifting, and as a four-times X Games gold medalist. As a stunt driver he’s worked in Hollywood films and has set world records, as he did in 2011 with Hot Wheels when he made a 332-foot- ramp-to-ramp leap in a truck at the Indianapolis 500. Outside of the car, Foust has a busy career as a television personality, notably hosting the American Top Gear series, as well as in his Life in the Foust Lane YouTube series.

With the ForzaRC Tanner Foust Challenge, it’s the Forza Community vs. Foust. The entire Forza community is challenged to beat Foust’s time on the event leaderboard. You’ll be driving Foust’s race car, the Volkswagen Beetle GRC, on the Dubai Mountain Circuit, and everyone who ends up beating Foust’s final time will win the exclusive 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am SD-455. In addition, come within two seconds of Foust’s final time and you’ll earn the Disco Driver Gear suit. Finally, we’ve got a great participation reward – the 1995 Volkswagen Corrado VR6 – that will go out to all players who set a time in the event.

To prepare for the Tanner Foust Challenge, be sure to add Tanner’s Gamertag -- SweetTFoust34 (corrected) – to your Xbox Live friends list, so you can follow his progress on the event leaderboard. We’ll have an update on the event in next week’s edition of the Week in Review!


See the video for Tanner's predictions on his own challenge compared to Joseph Newgarden's.

I tried to find the gamertag but it says that they couldn't find a match.

Having to follow them is moronic.
Just have an updated time perma posted with the challenge.

Of course you don't have to follow them at all, just do your best and see where it comes out.

I would like to add him. The gt doesn't seem to be correct. Any ideas? Cheers.

The WIR is probably missing a t as this account works, but ultimately confirmation needs to come from T10:

Thank you for these challenges! Really great rivals which helps to keep this game interesting, as there is always something to practice, something to look forward to.

Let`s have a good one!

Told you there would be repeats. ;)

Trans Am for everyone who missed out on Forzathon. But what I'm here for is the participation prize, the Corrado! :D

The Trans Am as the top prize is somewhat underwhelming, but people would rage if it was something else.

But the participation car is good. With that one, I am down to 13 locked cars I actually want.

Only 8 months after I bought the game. At this pace I'll have the cars I want within 2 and a half years!

Plot Twist: the '73 T/A comes with an exclusive Rutledge Wood livery (it's plaid).

already got the pontiac but the corrado and suit would be welcome.
Did some test runs already . Challenging but should be fun. I like this Dubai track but it is one I need to work on so this will be a good chance to do that . Especially the mountain section which I always find tricky . Harder when it in reverse

There’s a Tanner Foust Driver Gear in-game which I believe hasn’t been awarded to players yet.

You’d think this would have been the perfect place to hand that out but I guess Turn 10 have other plans for it...

Kinda surprised that they didn't make this a drift event given Tanner's propensity for going sideways with lots of tire smoke.

You're right - the WIR now has SweetTFoust34 as the account name.

I already got the Pontiac Firebird, don't care about the suit, so I'll be doing 1 lap on Noobai for the VW and that's it. Next challenge please.

People would riot. Decreasing your laptime with practice is one thing, trying to figure out exact angles, speeds, gears to stay in, when to use throttle vs. when to handbrake or clutch kick, how to stop spins......



Anyone have an idea on how fast he is normally? I'd think fairly fast because he is a professional after all, but the only game that comes up under that Gamertag is FM7, which he barely played. He did do the Forzathon for the Prowler though, so there's that.

One of "The 50"

While my first thought was YES a driftchallenge!! i can understand why its not a drift Challenge. explained very well by jonxmonx^
On the other hand (imo) FM must be the easiest game to learn how to drift With a Controller. lol

Apparently the only way to see Tanner's time on the new rivals event is to add him as a friend and check the leaderboards, so I did... and it doesn't work, because it's Forza 7 and of course it doesn't work :|

I'm unable to see his time, does anyone know what it is? I'd like to see if I beat him for the "additional reward" so I know if I can stop trying or not.

Thanks in advance.

The event only started today, has he actually set a time yet?

Probably hasnt set a time yet..most likely why you can't see it
When i did it an hour ago he hadnt set a time

Also the event doesn't end for a few weeks so until then he will be able to beat/improve his time until then too

Yeah makes sense, I guess I just figured he would have gone to Turn 10 sometime last month and set a time there on some fancy racing setup they have, like Romain Grosjean did on Spa with the E-23 for Rivals when Forza 6 first came out.

But I suppose it's totally possible he is just doing it from home any time during the rivals event. He's very competitive (maybe annoyingly so judging from Top Gear) so I suppose if he's doing it from home he's probably wearing out free play mode practicing for it.

Would have been nice if we had the lap time up there already though! Makes the difference whether I decide to put the time in to do 3 laps or 10+.

You can see he hasn't logged in on that account in the past 9 days, and the event only started today so he hadn't had a chance to set a laptime yet.
