Forza Motorsport Featured Events Sees The Ultimate German Showdown

Forza Motorsport 2022 Porsche Cayman GT4 RS

The latest round of Forza Motorsport's Featured Events is now available, and February brings a range of new cars and races to enjoy.

Let's take a look at what the second half of February has to offer in the 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.

Enter the Nordschleife

Update 5 has landed in Forza Motorsport, and with it comes the arrival of the iconic Nordschleife. The North Loop at the Nurburgring has been missing since the game launched last year but has finally joined the long list of circuits available to race on.

To celebrate the Nordschleife joining the grid, Forza Motorsport has gone all German for the second half of February. The ultimate German showdown is showcased in the Featured Tour, with the four giants of German motorsport all taking a turn.

Not only that, a full roster of Featured Multiplayer and Featured Rivals events create a stacked second half of the month. There's certainly a lot for racers to get stuck into!

The second half of February sees the ultimate German motorsport showdown. The BMW M Showdown kicks things off, putting players behind the wheel of the 2023 BMW M2.

Audi then takes over for the second week, with racers competing in the 2013 Audi RS 7 Sportback. The German theme then continues, with the Mercedes-AMG Showdown pitting you in the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
