Forza Motorsport Featured Events January 2024: Multiplayer, Rivals, Tour


Forza Motorsport 2022 Pagani Huayra R

The first round of Forza Motorsport's Featured Multiplayer Events for 2024 is now available, and this week is a real mixed bag. From McLarens in Britain to Mercedes at Hockenheim, let's take a look at January's Featured Multiplayer and Rival Events in Forza Motorsport.

Forza Motorsport's Featured Events are split into two main categories. Featured Multiplayer Events contain both Open and Spec Series, while Featured Rivals include Rival Events in dedicated cars around specified tracks.

Open Series allows players to bring their own wheels to the track, with upgrades and tuning encouraged. Spec Series, on the other hand, levels the playing field by putting all racers in the same car. These have all been tuned by the Forza team to provide the best racing possible.

Let's see what Forza Motorsport has in store this month.

Contemporary racing

January's first Career Series is the continuation of the Contemporary Tour. Taking place across four series, each with their own individual Spotlight Cars, players have until 31 January to complete all four series.

Completing the Contemporary Tour will unlock a special car for players. Powered by an intimidating 6-litre V12 engine, and hand-built using a carbon fibre construction, the 2022 Pagani Huayra R is an absolute beast of a machine.

So after dominating the track in a mix of fantastic racing cars, you can then rule the circuits in one of the best hypercars ever built.
