Taking part in the 2020 ‘Cars 4 Kids’ Rally, YouTubers TheStradman and Burlacher have revealed what they believe to be the number one rule of Supercar Rally participation.

Supercar rallies are the ultimate adventure for exotic car owners. Bringing together the best supercars and hypercars from across the country, rallies are a great experience for drivers and passengers alike.

In his September 24 video, Burlacher and Stradman revealed some of their ‘key rules’ for a successful supercar rally. From basics like eating to not crashing your friends Ferrari, they had just about every base covered.

According to Burlacher, there are a number of ‘rules’ to ensure you have a great experience on a Supercar rally.

Be sure to fill up on snacks

With Stradman piloting the Ferrari 458, Burlacher takes his subscribers through the ‘rules’ of rallies. Starting off with the basics, he was quick to point out that fuel, snacks, and walkie-talkies are all necessities to ensure the trip goes as smoothly as possible.

For a passenger, taking in the view is “essential,” while if you find yourself stuck on a canyon road behind traffic, be sure not to pass until it’s legal. In typical Stradman style, however, that rule was very quickly broken: “We just broke rule number 9, I just talked about it… and we broke it. I’m sorry”

Burlacher’s ‘rule 12’ is an obvious one while driving, and that’s making sure the car has enough fuel. Not only does the car need to be fueled, but so does the driver; ‘rule 13’ takes care of that – fill up on snacks.

“You don’t even know where you’re going to end”

Explaining how rallies work, Burlacher says “you know where you start.. [but] you don’t even know where you’re going to end. You just follow cars!” His ‘rule 72’ is also extremely important: “If the driver of the rally asks you if you wanna drive… you’re forced to say yes.”

With Burlacher behind the wheel, the second-most-important rule of all comes into effect: “Don’t crash your friends Ferrari!”

So with millions of dollars worth of cars around, gorgeous scenery, and miles and miles of open tarmac, what is the most important rule? According to Burlacher, rule number one of any supercar rally is to “remember to go to the bathroom before you leave!”

Series 28 of Forza Horizon 4 saw a number of updates and changes implemented, with one of the biggest being the introduction of Horizon Backstage. We explain how to access this new area, and give a rundown of all the cars available. 

The Forza Backstage area was added to Forza Horizon 4 as part of the Series 28 update on October 13, 2020.

Allowing players access to exclusive, ultra-rare, and hard-to-find cars, the Backstage area is an exciting new addition to the game. Along with making it easier to find such rare cars, it also makes them far more accessible, as each featured vehicle only costs one ‘Backstage Pass’ rather than millions of credits.

Horizon Backstage LocationHorizon Backstage is located behind the main Horizon Festival stage.

How to access Horizon Backstage

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage can be accessed much the same as the ‘Autoshow’ in the game.

Players can either drive to the physical location found behind the main Horizon Festival Stage, or access via the ‘Autoshow’ menu.

You can also access the area via the pause menu, by selecting “Horizon Backstage” under the ‘Cars’ tab.

Horizon Backstage Car ListEach car costs 1 Backstage Pass, and is limited to one per player.

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage Passes

Each vehicle in the Backstage area is available for purchase by players. Instead of the usual method of obtaining cars via in-game credits or Forzathon points, each vehicle costs 1x Backstage Pass.

These passes are awarded to players once they reach certain milestones in Festival event playlists. Passes are not specific to particular cars, and can be used for any vehicles featured in the backstage area.

Players can also accumulate passes, as they do not have an expiry date. It is important to note, however, that each featured car is limited to only one per player.

Horizon Backstage car votingThe Forza Horizon 4 community has the opportunity to vote which cars make it to Backstage.

Horizon Backstage cars

The cars featured in Horizon Backstage are chosen via community vote. From what we can see, previous cars stick around after their initial period, and currently, players are able to access Backstage featured cars from the previous seven days.

Currently available Horizon Backstage cars:

  • 1999 Lotus Elise Series 1 Sport 190
  • 2012 Ferrari 599XX Evo
  • 1965 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Hoonicorn Mustang
  • 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang
  • 1970 Porsche 914/6
