First things first, to make this process easier, you should make sure that you unlock the Buenas Vistas house to unlock fast travel. Once you unlock that, it will make travelling around the map extremely easy. Now that you have unlocked fast travel, let’s talk about the next step.

Progress Through the Campaign

You must progress through the campaign to the point where you earn two Accolades and unlock the Rush PR Stunts chapter 1 with those points. After unlocking this chapter, complete the Canyon Expedition to unlock the Drift Zones. Keep in mind that this process can take a bit of time since you will have to win quite a lot of races to reach here. However, with enough effort and time, you’ll easily unlock the Drift Zones.

Your map will get quite cluttered after unlocking all the PR stunts so make sure that you filter the Drift Zones to find them easily. They are spread all across the map and feature various terrains so make sure to try them all.

How to Complete Drift Zones in Forza Horizon 5

Now that you have unlocked the Drift Zones, let’s see how you can complete them. As a side note, using a supported steering wheel will make it easier for you to complete them. Plus, if you want to unlock every car in the game, you should try out the infinite XP glitch on the Goliath race. This will allow you to have your favourite car while completing Drift Zones.

Completing Drift Zones can get quite challenging depending on the race. You start with 0 points and have to drift on curved roads to increase your points. If you hit something or start going straight for a prolonged period of time, your points will stop increasing and the multiplier will end. Make sure that you balance your car in both directions or you will spin out.

You can get up to three stars in these zones and depending on your score, you will receive Accolade points as well.


With that said, our guide about how to unlock Drift Zones in Forza Horizon 5 comes to the end. Hopefully, this guide make it easier to unlock these zones. If you want to enter the Hall of Fame in Forza Horizon 5, you will want to get a good score in the Drift Zones and other PR events.
