    Hmm, VIP exclusive #Forzathon events towards the end of the month. Those will probably be the first #Forzathon events I miss as I don't plan on paying for VIP just to get some Achievements.

    I want that 911 GT3 RSR! Other than that, the events don't really interest me.

    Now let's see if they'll actually give us the Flying Lizard RSR this time...

    Looks like a good series of Forzathons for August.

    I can snag another Lola to sell on the auction house. The 911 RSR is being put up again, and hopefully for real this time. I can also finally get the Sesto Elemento sinced I missed it in the past.

    Interesting too that there's an VIP exclusive Forzathon.

    Is the one day event a reference to something or is it just a random date with a generic title? :odd:

    It is on a Tuesday though so it could be related to perhaps the final FM7 car list reveal.

    Last day of summer is Sept. 22, which is coincidentally PC2's release date. :lol:

    I don't think the rewards will be anything exclusive, probably just repetitions of past Forzathon cars, if any even at all.

    On the other hand, it wouldn't be the first time Turn 10 does something silly and unexpected. I still have daily nightmares from that retarded Wrath hot lap around Brands Hatch GP to get the 1977 Aston unicorn in FM6. That was even far sillier than putting an exclusive car behind VIP.
    And let's face it, VIP these days is quite underwhelming anyway so maybe they want to spice it up a little bit, hoping to sell more VIP in FM7 if they now show the community that you can get exclusive cars if you buy VIP. Isn't that the case already yet anyway with those driver outfits in FM7? Some being exclusive for VIP? The next step to exlusive cars really isn't that big.

    Anyway no interest in FM7 whatsoever but I still enjoy FH3 from time to time and hope we get an interesting final car pack for Aug.

    Gamescom starts on August 22nd, so they might have something special (and potentially exclusive) in store for VIP players during that week. Maybe the long rumoured Hoonigan cars?

    *shrug* who knows. Maybe together with that other rumored/confirmed/missing thing, the Polaris Slingshot. :)

    Hoping there's no last minute changes again and we do get the 911 RSR this time. Curious about the VIP events since I've got the Ultimate edition though it may come to nothing.

    Hmm today's update added the following cars to Horizon Promo :

    2011 Porsche #45 FLying Lizard 911 GT3 RSR
    1993 Porsche 928 GTS
    1970 Porsche 914/6
    723 Quartz Regalia

    The latter is sent via in-game message, the first is the Forzathon reward we get in August instead of July. Could the other 2 Porsches be the exclusive Forzathon rewards for VIPs? Would be interesting since the 928 GTS is new to Forza (at least on XBox One, don't know about the earlier games). The 914/6 was already in FH2 and FM6.

    Anyway, no DLC pack again this month... sigh.

    Looking at these, it should theoretically be possible for non-VIP users to get the VIP Challenges by using a shared car in co-op.

    I'll need a bit of help with those as I don't have VIP :)

    No clue how it works but I can always help you out to get the car that way. :) So it's just doing the challenges together in coop?

    Sounds like it. I only do #Forzathon for the Achievements anyway; I've got 132,000,000 CR sitting in the bank so I'm not after the cars or anything :lol:

    Damn, I only have about 60,000,000 CR in the bank (and ALL the cars in the garage). :)

    But I know you want to keep your achievements as complete as possible so I can help you out doing them in coop. I want to do them for the Porsches anyway.

    Great to see the the 914/6 and 928 GTS, but of course the latter is locked behind Gold subscription. Always so calculated. :ouch:

    Non-VIP players won't even be able to get the 928 and 914 in the auction house, will they?

    I'm going to be online from about 3pm Pacific time this afternoon if anyone wants to do a co-op race together.

    What do you have to do to open up the Splash Down danger sign? Guessing I need to max out the Yarra Valley festival.
