Win the DeLorean this week

For the season, 26 points earns you the DeLorean DMC-12 and 46 points the Aston Martin DBS SL. This is out of 64 points available, so both are very achievable.

The PR Stunts are the Runway Danger Sign, the Cordillera Speed Zone and the Hillshide Drift Zone. Each of these earn you 2 playlist points and a wheelspin. Check the playlist for the car restrictions as you now need to hit each target in a particular range of cars.

The photo challenge is #newdigs. Photograph any vehicle outside of the Casa Bella house for a Link phrase and 2 playlist points.

If you can reach 140 mph in Horizon Open Racing, there are 25,000 credits and 2 playlist points for that. Finish in the top 30 of the Eliminator for 2 playlist points and another Forza Link phrase. Lastly, smash 100 cacti for 3 playlist points and the phrase "Gotta smash em all!" which wouldn't be a great phrase to use on the Trial.
