    Am I reading the chart correctly? Is there really a week-long Forzathon (12 Jun 2017 - 19 Jun 2017)???

    I was just about to say the same thing. Plus you'll easily gain back the 10 skill points you spent to unlock this perk. Remember bank your skill points at 30,000 x10 since you can only bank 3 skill points at a time.

    More Porsches to get then. Should bring the tally up to about 20 then. Need to get rid of some cars. Pity we can't remove those inaccessible Preorder cars that appeared a while back (i only have the C Class Mercedes. Some of the VIP liveries may have to go as they are not really that useful.

    So this is the first time I can recall there being a #Forzathon that lasts an entire week.

    Microsoft's E3 briefing is on June 11, when the next Forza title is expected to be formally announced.

    One can read a lot into the "celebrating the Forza community" title of that week's #Forzathon but I wouldn't be surprised if something is planned.

    Another 918? Guess I could put it up for auction. And I need another Chevelle since the previous one I sold didn't go for much.

    Do you have to do the street races in an SUV only? Do they work if you do online freeroam? I only have one street race open in single player.

    I did my street races in the 240SX. Not sure about online freeroam as I did all mine in single player. If you just have the one street race open, you could just repeat it 3 times to get the Macan.

    You unlock more Street Races by winning Head-to-Head races.

    After multiple Street Eace wins you then unlock Midnight Battles.

    Midnight Battles are 1-on-1 races where you can earn exclusive cars.

    I'm gonna try and do a one for all three for the week long forzathon. I'll just do a championship in a A class classic car to get all in one shot.

    This game seems to have trouble on deciding what's considered a J-turn and what isn't.

    Anyway, got my Cayman GTS and spent my 200,000+ Cr on a Lancia 037.

    I'll do the Co-op event later.

    That moment when you try and bid on a 200,000cr XJ220 HE so you can auction it later to get all your money back but the bid doesn't go through, but you get the achievement and wheelspins anyway... that makes things easier for me, I'm not gonna complain.

    EDIT - Tip for anyone struggling with the Co-op challenge: all you need to do is matchmake for a Co-op session, and then once you're in, drive past a speed camera. As it turns out I guess the game counts PR stunts as events, because I just got it accidentally - it wasn't even three stars.

    J-turn detection appears to be strict about the 180 degrees of rotation and the car must not go too wide in the process, so speed is also a factor.

    The J-turns were more annoying than I expected.

    Yeah, I made the mistake of trying to do my J-turns in front of the Outback site, and of course it was full of AI cars getting in my way. It took longer than I expected, but I finally got it.

    Planning ahead, I bought a Tamo Racemo for 300,000 CR, as I suspect demand for that will be quite high during its #Forzathon day.

    I can also confirm that Speed Traps work for the Co-Op event.

    There's one coming up in a couple weeks where you have to win a game of king.

    Ugh. I think I've only won three games of King in FH3, ever. At least it's not the challenge to win the Porsche.

    Damn

    Was hoping 3 Head to Heads would win me the Porsche.

    No such luck ¬.¬

    Using the TVR atm.
