Reminder tips to ensure Achievements and gifts are unlocked:

1) Go to your Settings menu for HUD and make sure Notifications are turned On. If you have 550 cars in your garage, auction/remove one or two.
2) If you are playing on PC: make sure you have not disabled Connected User Experiences and Telemetry setting, and turn off antivirus programs (see Known Issues thread in the Support forum)
3) Reboot now - hold the power button on your console until it shuts off. Also reboot any Win10 computers connected to the same router.
4) Use the dashboard Achievement tracker to see if you are progressing through # requirements, or use a Bucket List with skills requirement.
5) Reboot again if you see an Achievement but no gift.
6) Make sure you are reading the requirements correctly, and ask the community for tips on proper execution. (If a "Race" doesn't work in online, try solo mode)
7)

If you are asking for help or explanation for why you're not receiving Achievements/awards, include the following in your post:
-Which platform you're playing on
-Confirmation that you have tried all of the above troubleshooting
-If the Forzathon menu shows the challenge as complete or not
-% of completion for the challenge as shown in the console dashboard Achievements section
-If you've had trouble with Forzathon before or if this is a new issue.

Why bother with the Caterham when you can be boring and jump in your mercury coupe for a drag race and trounce everyone by 10 seconds including the Caterham.

I'd prefer people thinking I'm boring to me having to enter the race a 4th time against people who are doing that anyway.

But a c class AMC Pacer is pretty fun too ;)

Threading the needle is a near miss on both sides.

Using the AMC Rebel Machine is a very wide car and gets closer to both sides of the road, threading the needle skills came up extremely easy due to being nearer to both cars every time. Only found this out due to lazyness and not changing cars after the race, my regular car I was practicing in for the last week was narrow and the skills came up much less often.

Any wide car would be good if you have one.

Just drive the middle of the esplanade at the gold coast where there is tons of traffic.

All I had to do was 3 drag races in a drag build AMC Rebel and to drive on the highway for a bit, and boom, forzathon completed.

Anyone else feel like there were a lot more cars driving down the middle of the highway than normal? I do that drive a few times a month with the Lamborghini for XP and I normally drive down the middle without issue, this time I got clobbered every minute or two.

Completed this Forzathon in a single car, the AMC AMX auto-tuned to C-Class.

Finished second in three drag races to earn the Dodge Dart SS HE which completed two events.
The Barn Find was easily discovered with a drone to unlock the AMC Pacer..
Threaded the Needle on the crowded super highway.

It's fun to finish a Forzathon using only one vehicle.

Confirm Pacer X was an AMC by Forzathon. Good job Turn10.
I just got the barn find message after finishing a race with it.
Then I went on to collect my barn find Pacer X with my bid find Pacer X. LOL
It's now being fixed, just forgot to tell Warren not to rip off any parts from my Pacer X to fix it.

They probably just sent out the message late because their clock was wrong

Latest week in review does not comment at all about new events.

So they might have the expansion now ready and loaded.

I still like to see the "April overview" :(

I just got the Pacer X in AH, then did a head to head race. Want to see if it works for the event.

If I were a new player and know nothing about this special barn find,
I will be quite disappointed to discover the same car after buying it from AH

As would I, but it looks like we're going to have to wait a few days.

If there's an Expansion releasing on Tuesday we should see this month's #Forzathon Challenges added to the Achievements list.

If there's no Expansion releasing then we should know about next week's #Forzathon around Wednesday/Thursday as it'll need to be added to the game, and #Forzathon is advertised in various places (like the Xbox Dashboard) as being a weekly thing.

Didn't they announce Blizzard weeks in advance? There's also a huge Spring sale starting tomorrow on Xbox.

You can colour me very surprised with various pencils if we get a CU tomorrow.

I have a feeling they are not announcing the Forzathon for this week yet because it coincides with the next expansion... and a certain manufacturer we don't have yet.

Yes, apparently the last update added this. Previously if you were driving against oncoming traffic the game would send cars down the center to hit you head on. Now if you are driving against oncoming traffic not only will cars be coming toward you in the center lane but cars from the opposite side of the highway will jump over into oncoming traffic and drive in the center lane in front of you. It's pretty funny when it happens.
