Winter Daily Challenges
Photo Challenge and PR Stunts
The winter photo challenge is #buddyup. Take a photo with another player or drivatar to earn a super wheelspin.
The seasonal PR Stunts are the Mudkickers' Showjump danger sign, the Roman Mile speed trap and the Derwent Water speed zone. A tricky selection! Make sure you have rewinds enabled for the danger sign, as it can be pretty frustrating to get stuck in those concrete tubes otherwise.
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 extra super wheelspins.
AWD Spotlight wins you the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé, Ford Cup wins you the Ford Mustang S5, and Snowball Fighter wins you the mighty Ford Fiesta GRC.
Remember, for each of these rewards you need to top the points table after the three races against drivatars with the Highly Skilled difficulty at a minimum.
The winter Playground Games offers the Mexican Hat Dance car horn as its reward. To earn this prize you just have to take part.
There's a showcase remix: race the train in the Austin Taxi.
For the Trial, the prize is a Chevrolet ZR2.
