Rivals are a unique game mode where players compete against the best driver on a specific track available in Forza Motorsport. The best driver can be your friends or a random player within their region or globally online, where they’ll be competing for the best lap time, which could be added to the Featured Leaderboards.

Depending on the type of Rivals event, players can bring their car with car performance upgrades installed and tuned for the best possible performance on the race track. Additionally, certain Rival events will have specific requirements like Car Class entry, in which players can only bring cars within that class to compete.

In terms of frequency, there is at least a new Rivals event occurring in-game weekly, which has a Spotlight Car and its featured race track. Rivals has three event types, Open Time Attack, Featured, and VIP, each featuring multiple playlists with their events to participate in.

VIP Rivals events are only available to VIP Membership players, with the Premium Edition and Premium Add-On Bundle for Forza Motorsport. Open Time Attack allows players to bring their car with the upgrades and custom tuning to compete in head-to-head track action with a Rival car.

With Update 3.0 now available, the new race track Hockenheim Circuit will be available for the Time Attack events, and future race tracks will also receive the same treatment. Lastly, the Featured Rivals are limited-time events that could be Car Class or manufacturer-restricted and have a featured race track.
