Two Bounty Hunter events have went live in Forza Motorsport 7. The bounty is Turn 10's Alan Hartman whose gamertag is The man who ran. The first event:

Bounty Hunter Event 1: Valentine's With a Hart(man):

Track: Daytona 24 Hour
Car to use: 2017 Ford GT

Alan's final time: 1:48.077

Previous best times:
1. 1:53.635
2. 1:51.868
3. 1:50.101
4. 1:49.565
5. 1:48.927
6. 1:48.587

Participation car: 2016 Porsche GT3 RS
Winner car: 1993 Ford SVT Cobra R Forza Edition

The second event:

Bounty Hunter Event 2: The Pacemaker With Alan Hartman:

https://i.imgur.com/h8YSuWs.jpg

Track: Le Mans Classic
Car to use: 1966 Ford #2 GT40 Mk II Le Mans

Alan's final time: 4:02.635

Previous best times:
1. 4:08.807
2. 4:06.498
3. 4:05.876
4. 4.03.536

Participation car: 1958 MG MGA
Winner car: 1993 Jaguar XJ220 Forza Edition


Both events offer a car for participation in the event as well as a car for beating Alan's final time for a total of 4 cars up for grabs. For both events, the car players drive are rentals. Feel free to share your tips and advice for setting a fast lap for both events as well as your times for both events.

The reward cars for participation and for a winning time for both events have been announced as per this link: https://www.forzamotorsport.net/en-us/news/wir_2_16_18

According to https://www.forzamotorsport.net/en-us/news/wir_3_2_18, these events will close on March 7 at midnight Pacific and Alan will finalize his times this weekend so players will have some time to beat his final lap times.

Edit: The times that are in bold are the fastest times Alan has achieved for each event. He'll no longer run laps in either event given that his deadline for setting his final laps was the night of March 4 Pacific time.

Update: As of typing this, Turn 10 has taken down both of these events as they are no longer listed in-game. Give them some time for them to go through the leaderboards to determine which cars each participant will receive and to send the gift messages out.

Nice car/track combinations.

However, double the exclusive cars means double the complaining I'm afraid...

I added him as a friend when it was announced he'd be the bounty, so have been seeing his times on leaderboards since then. It's hard to tell as you never know how much effort someone has put in to any particular car/track combo, but I've got the impression he's in between John and Phil, but closer to John than Phil. But I may have that completely wrong!

Ford GT40 is gonna be difficult. If any of you have raced Old Mulsanne in a vintage car before, you should know there's that small corner after the second chicane is supposed to be where the tarmac is very bumpy and you can be thrown off the road very easily. I did it in a 250 LM which is slower than the GT40.

It's never enough to remind everyone that the runoffs on each side of the straight are NOT part of the track.

The Daytona event is probably gonna be difficult because of Alan being able to perform better there.
May the forced induction be with you.

Ford GT at Daytona drives terribly. So much understeer. Even SIM steering doesn't totally fix it. I don't remember this car being that bad in FM6. Still pulled out a decent run. May try again for 44s since that's my all time favorite track.

Based off achievements it doesn't look like Alan has played a lot of FM7 on is primary account (no telling if he played a lot on dummy accounts/pre-FM7 launch builds). I'd venture that he isn't as quick as other bounties.

Just made both Events,

Well Alan´s Times are not Challenging at the Moment, Beated both on my second Lap within 5-6 seconds, Looks like he only made the Standing startlap.

Anyway, I don´t think I will try again because Rental Cars are not my Cup of Tea, it´s horrible how the Standard GT40 Lifts his front-inner Tyre when accelerating out of a Corner, or even at Higher Speeds.
Feels like he wants do perform a Wheelie... Very Challenging also in the right-kink near the End of Mulsanne-Straight, nearly a Take-off!! ...not Interesting when I cannot even adjust my Suspension.

Why not Using Owned Cars within Homologation restrictions?

To ensure everyone is on the same playing field. It's highly probable the upcoming esport season will do the same. On the esport side it has shown so far who needs tunes to go fast and who are just fast. The oddity is some who do good but not great in leaderboards where tuning is allowed rise towards the top when it's stock cars. The shocking part is seeing some who are always near the top being a good bit off pace. It's pretty interesting seeing how skill is such a tough thing to judge beyond the top 30 in the world.

Glad I'm not the only one that feels this way. I have no prior experience with this car, other than FM6 intro race, but I have loads of track time on Daytona. It is also one of my favorite tracks. My biggest gripe with the Ford GT is consistency. I lay down a good lap and do what I think is basically the same thing more or less during the next lap and find myself off the track. It seems almost a better option to slightly overshoot the bigger sweeping corners and then square the car and launch it out from the inside of the turn.

As someone whose health is in a really bad way, I'm not expecting to get anything out of these events. I'll set a time for the sake of the "taking part" car, but whether I not I can put in any competitive times later on remains to be seen.

I don't expect much from Daytona, not a fan of the track. Le Mans is a tough one though, I actually do like the track, but as has been said. One mistake and there's way too much time to get around to the next lap. I actually wish these rivals events only used 1 lap wonders from a standing or rolling start.

I've done both with no real change in lap time. It's turn 1 and the chicane at the end that really determines if the lap is good.

I remember running some event in FM6 and this car drove ok. I definitely don't remember the front lift that happens and corner off understeer.

I had one instance where the car wanted to do a wheelie on exit of turn 1.

Ahem..... then we all should Play "Outrun" (SEGA, 1986) with the Stock Testarossa ;-)

I mean this make the whole thing very Arcadic
Such an Event should be a Pic of the Player as a Racer at all. Racing is not only how to drive, Racing is the whole Package of Driving, Upgrade and Tuning your car with your own Setup (bought Setups should not be allowed for such an Event).
That shows how competitive (borrowed this word from my Countryman Niki Lauda ;-)) you are at all.

In my point of view that´s the whole Playfield you mentioned. Learning driving, learn how your car responds, learn how to adjust your Setup to go quicker and why.
You say it would be unfair to those who are not good in Tuning, I´d say it is unfair to those who are not the fastest Drivers but maybe they know their Car better.

And after all again, this is not an Arcade Game,

Maybe that is the way you like to play, but a lot of people drive the cars to participate only and do not know how to tune. A lot of people play to create liveries only, and are not skilled drivers.

This game is for everyone to enjoy as best they can, not to exclude those folks who don't have the time because of families or jobs to get accomplished at tuning, plus be a skilled driver.

If you look back at the last Bounty Hunter with Johniwanna, a lot of the people who participated LEARNED a lot about their skills and IMPROVED as the event went on. That is all good.
