The difference between Forza Horizon 3 Speed Zones and FH 3 Speed Traps is that for the first type of PR Stunts, you have to maintain a cumulative speed which has to be higher than the one required by the said stunt.

Simplified, this means that for a Speed Zone Stunt, the score is determined by your overall speed while driving on a specific segment of a road.

These PR Stunts are more difficult than the Speed Traps but easier than the Danger Signs and the Drift Zones available in the game.

In order to get three stars on such a stunt, you will have to beat the required speed, and below we will share several tips that might help you while working on achieving 3 Stars on all Forza Horizon 3 Speed Zones.

Additionally, we also created a video guide which shows how we managed to get 3 Stars on these specific stunts, along with the cars and the upgrades we have used.

Forza Horizon 3 for PC and Xbox One features 21 Speed Zones, which are marked on your map by icons showing two road safety cameras, similar to those in the image above.

When you scroll on one of these icons you will notice a marked section which represents the zone where you have to drive as fast as possible.

Along with these segments you will also see the overall speed you have to maintain on that section in order to get one, two or three stars.

Your performance on these Forza Horizon 3 Stunts is affected by multiple factors and the most important one is the car you decide to use. This factor works in correlation with the second one, which is the terrain.

While in the video guide below we use various models, we suggest you to try the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 for Speed Zones on difficult terrains (mud, sand and dirt) and the 2015 Koenigsegg One: 1 for Speed Zones placed on asphalt.

The second car is quite expensive, but you can use our method to get fast credits in Forza Horizon 3, if you don’t have enough funds. Alternatively, you can get more CR from the free Wheelspins awarded when you level up.

To level up faster you can start smashing XP Boards or simply use our Fast XP method.

Obviously, the car you decide to drive must be upgraded accordingly; therefore, you should maximize your car’s speed, acceleration and launch.

The launch is important because some of the Speed Zones feature multiple turns, thus you will be forced to hit the brakes often.

When you play a Speed Zone Stunt you have to remember that you are allowed to leave the road but you are not allowed to get too far from it. This means that you are also allowed to cut corners as long as you don’t go too far.

This trick will help you conserve your speed so remember it whenever you see a corner on the road.

Another important factor that will determine your overall speed is your starting point. It is a good idea to pick a starting point located in a straight line and as far as possible, because if you enter a Speed Zone at high speed, you won’t have to worry about the speed you might lose when hitting the brakes.

Remember these five tips if you wish to get 3 Stars on all Forza Horizon 3 Speed Zones:

  • Always check the leaderboards to see what cars have been used by other players.
  • Cut the corners if possible but stay close to the marked route.
  • Avoid all obstacles you might encounter.
  • Upgrade your cars accordingly.
  • Enter each zone as fast as possible.

Last but not least, be patient and watch our video guide below to see our starting points, as well as the cars and the upgrades that helped us achieve 3 Stars on all 21 Forza Horizon 3 Speed Zones.
