Yes it's winter again in the Great Britain of Forza Horizon 4. Brave the snow and there are some great prizes up for grabs! Let's take a look at what's on offer this season.
Remember, series 38 was the first of the Forza Horizon Mixtape: events from previous seasons are being repeated with some fresh chances to win some rare cars. Speaking of rare cars, have you seen the Forza Horizon 5 car list update?
Winter Festival Playlist
This week the seasonal playlist rewards are the 1993 Ford Mustang and the 2017 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Fiesta ST. Win these cars for 50% and 80% season completion respectively.
For the series, the 50% reward is a Backstage Pass and 80% the stunning 1960 Porsche 356 RSR.
This week's Forzathon challenges are based around the Hypercar type. Earn 100 FP for completion, doubled if you own the Lake Lodge.
|Lush||Own and drive any Hypercar|
|Ultra-Exotic||Put on a show of force with your Hypercar by earning 10 Pass Skills while racing it|
|Pinnacle Performance||Prove the word "supercar" isn't enough to describe the performance of your Hypercar by earning a total of 9 stars from Speed Zones with it|
|Automotive Elite||Bask in the glory of winning a Road Racing Series event at Lakehurst Forest Sprint with your Hypercar|
Weekly Challenge "Top of the Class"
The daily challenges come from the winter of series 17. Here they are:
|#1||Bob's Your Uncle||Earn 2 Awesome Skill Chains|
|#2||Belgian Tourniquet||Combine Drafting and Pass Skills to earn 3 Slingshot Skills|

Daily Challenges this winter
Earn 10 FP per daily challenge and 60 FP bonus for completing all the whole week. This is also doubled if you own the Lake Lodge, so make sure to invest in that!
Photo Challenge and PR Stunts
This winter the photo challenge is #diggingit. Take a photo of a Rally Monster type car at the quarry.
The seasonal PR stunts are the Aerodrome speed trap, the Northbound danger sign and the Lakeshore speed zone. The latter stunt is a tricky speed zone in winter. I'd recommend using the Hoonigan Ford RS200 Evolution.
As ever, if you own the DLC remember to also tackle the two additional PR stunts on Fortune Island and one in Lego Valley for the extra super wheelspins.
Bugging Out cross country championship earns you the Ski Hat. White Knuckle Ride has the rare 1970 AMC Rebel "The Machine" as its prize. Renault Championship wins the 2016 Renault Clio R.S. 16 Concept.
For each of these prizes you need to place first overall after the three races against Highly Skilled drivatars. Racing on a lower difficulty just earns a small cash prize.
Winter Seasonal Events
The Trial "Snow Showdown" earns the 1961 Maserati Tipo 61 Birdcage. Meanwhile the Playground Games prize is the 1984 Honda Civic CRX Mugen. You don't need to win the Playground Games to earn this great piece of '80s Japanese engineering, just taking part earns the reward.
