Tips on Beating The Goliath

The Goliath is purely a test of endurance. It is one of the longest races in the game, taking you all over the map. The key thing to focus on is clean driving. You need to stay on track, so simply trying to go as fast as possible won't help here. You get a decent amount of time to clear it, so make sure to break early into turns, and avoid pulling off any wild drifts. If you do lose some time, don't worry too much. Just get back on track and keep going. It's a long race, so you can still mess up a few times and hit the target time.

That's how to unlock The Goliath in Forza Horizon 5. For more on the game, be sure to check out our full breakdown of the Soundtrack. Once you're done there, visit our page on Graphics vs Performance Mode.
