Since the launch of Forza Motorsport 7, we’ve had a number of great people volunteer to be the “Bounty” in our ongoing Bounty Hunter Rivals series. 2017 IndyCar champion Josef Newgarden kicked things off in October, and Forza creative director Dan Greenawalt gave the community a great challenge in November. Here we are in December, and we have a brand-new racer ready to take on the world. We’re extremely pleased to announce that Xbox’s own Phil Spencer (Gamertag: P3) will be the player to beat in our December Bounty Hunter event, which begins today, on Monday, December 11.
Not only are we over the moon to have Phil as our Bounty target this month, we have a fantastic car and track combination this time in the 2017 Porsche #92 Porsche GT Team 911 RSR on Hockenheim National Circuit. That’s 500+ horsepower worth of rear-wheel-drive racing madness tackling one of Germany‘s most famous circuits.
As we did in November, we’ll be posting a poll on the Forza Motorsport Twitter account where voters can choose which car they’d like to see as the reward car for those who beat Phil on the track. One thing I can tell you is that everyone who sets a time for this event will be sent the 2017 Porsche #92 Porsche GT Team 911 RSR when the event closes on Jan. 3, 2018. Look for Phil to set his initial time after the event opens on Monday and good luck to everyone who participates.
