Series 39 kicks off with Summer! As ever, we're bringing you all the news and events this week in the Great Britain of Forza Horizon 4.
Last series, series 38, was the start of the Forza Horizon Mixtape. Events now are reruns of old Forza favourites. This means there's no new cars, but opportunities to pick up some rarities. There is a new gift car: the VW Golf R in Horizon 5 livery, so check your inbox for that one. Let's take a look at the weekly events!
Summer Festival Playlist
The playlist rewards this week are the 2018 Honda Civic and the KTM X-Bow GT4. Earn these vehicles for 50% and 80% season completion respectively.
For the whole series, 50% earns you a backstage pass and 80% the Porsche 356 RSR. Don't miss the backstage pass, as the car list you can pick from is huge!
This week the Forzathon challenge is based around the 2005 TVR Sagaris. If you're just picking up a Sagaris, take a look at what you can buy with skill points on that car. There's a little surprise in there!
Earn 100 FP for completion, doubled if you own the Lake Lodge.

Photo Challenge and PR Stunts
This week the photo challenge is #prizedposession. Take a photo of the new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
The weekly PR stunts are the Great Ridge danger sign, the Bamburgh Dunes speed trap and the Oldweir speed zone.
Don't forget, if you own the two expansions there are two more seasonal PR stunts on Fortune Island and one in Lego Valley for extra super wheelspins!
This weeks seasonal championships offer up a few hard to find cars as prizes. These are German Engineering with the BMW E92 M3 GTS, Forest Monsters with the VW GRC Beetle, Boiling Point with the 1994 Honda Civic.
To take these rewards you'll need to beat drivatars with Highly Skilled difficulty.
The summer Playground Games has the Nissan Fairlady Z 1969 as its reward. You don't need to win to earn this car, just taking part earns the prize.
For the Trial, the prize is a 2005 Honda NSX-R.
