Forza Motorsport introduces a new career mode for fans to work through which offers an old-school, structured format comparable to the classic entries. Here’s everything you need to know about the Builders Cup in Forza Motorsport.

In its early days, the Forza Motorsport games took inspiration from the then-dominant Gran Turismo series. Sony’s signature racing game franchise had become renowned for its lengthy yet structured career modes and vast car list.

As time went on Forza Motorsport strayed further and further from this format looking to develop its own identity. Now a reboot has arrived though it’s the perfect time to return to its roots and there’s no better way to do that than with the Builders Cup.

What is the Builders Cup in Forza Motorsport?

The Builders Cup is Forza Motorsport’s single-player career mode. It consists of five Tours with their own unique restrictions and entry requirements. Each tour is made up of 4 main events and an additional Showcase Event where you can try out your new prize car.

This new format encourages players to work through the career in a linear order as later Tours aren’t unlocked until you complete previous ones. Finishing every event in a Tour unlocks a unique prize car which cannot be acquired elsewhere.
