How to win the Buggy and the Beast Showcase in Forza Horizon 5

Tale as old as time, true as it can be.

There are many exciting things to do in Forza Horizon 5, and one of those is the Buggy and the Beast Showcase event. To be able to play it, you need to complete the Horizon Baja expedition. When you unlock this event, be prepared for buggy and monster truck adventures (hence the name of the event, as the beast refers to the trucks). If you're ready, head to the La Gran Caldera to participate.

  • Don't come too close to the monster trucks.
  • Let them lead most of the race, and keep a distance so they can't hit you.
  • Drive carefully and don't try to take over the race until the very end.
  • Be aggressive near the finish line and position the buggy between them.
  • If your timing is right, you'll have just enough time to pass the finish line before they hit you.

After you finish the race, you'll have a chance to drive that same monster truck that gave you so many problems. That's the second part of The Buggy and the Beast Showcase, where you'll have three minutes to complete Optional Accolades.
