Forza Horizon Car Meet
Owners of classic, custom, and exotic cars are invited to join the car meet on the museum parking deck, featuring hot rides from Forza fans and Los Angeles car clubs from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. PDT. Finalist cars will be identified during the meet that will be showcased during the Forza Horizon 3 LA launch later in the afternoon. Ken Block will choose his favorite cars, and the owner of the winning vehicle will receive a custom Xbox One S console and a copy of Forza Horizon 3. In addition, fans will be able to get up close with the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor race truck from Ford Performance.
Meet Ken Block
Ken Block, race car driver and star of the Gymkhana series – whose Gymkhana NINE was inspired by showcase events in Forza Horizon 3 – will be meeting with fans and taking questions on the live stream.
Fans will have the opportunity to take photos with Ken’s “daily driver,” a 2017 Ford Focus RS.

The Petersen Automotive Museum
Recognized as the “world’s greatest car museum” by Top Gear magazine, the Petersen was dramatically transformed this year by a $90M renovation that included the addition of the Forza Motorsport Racing Experience, allowing visitors to race cars from the museum’s collection on the world’s most legendary tracks.
This is the third major Forza event this year hosted by the Petersen, following the North American debut of the Forza Horizon 3 cover car and the Michelin 24 Hours Forza Challenge.
The Petersen is a charitable organization supported exclusively by member donations and memberships. Several levels of memberships are available, including the Forza Motorsport Pass which includes exclusive benefits and privileges including after-hours Forza competitive gaming events.
