DJ Mag, the world’s biggest dance music media brand, has teamed up with some of the world’s best DJs to stage races in Xbox Game Studios’ Forza Motorsport 7 video game, where drivers experience the beauty and danger of competitive racing at the limit.
Over three weeks you’ll have the chance to pit yourself against drum & bass legend Andy C, top ten DJ in the Top 100 DJs list, Timmy Trumpet, and big room Dutch house master Quintino. The DJs have been practicing hard ahead of posting their best times — and you have five days to beat it!

To play, all you need is an Xbox device (Xbox One, Series X or Series S) or a Windows 10 PC and a copy of Forza Motorsport 7. FM7 is available on Xbox Game Pass, so anyone with a subscription to that can play for free.
Anyone can take part, and you can race as many times as you like while the Bounty Hunter event is live (and as the DJs get knocked off the top of the leaderboard, they will have the opportunity to regain their crown).
