It’s now winter during the Horizon Wilds Takeover series. The Forzathon Weekly Challenge during this series is the Gymkhana Ten, which has you taking a 2016 Ford Hoonigan Focus RS out around Guanajuato complete a variety of tasks in order to win the overall challenge. One of the missions in the challenge is to find and ‘Smash a Donkey Piñata’ that’s located somewhere in the urban sprawl of Guanajuato in Forza Horizon 5. Here’s how to track down the little cardboard fellow.

Forza Horizon 5 — Steps to complete the Smash a Donkey Piñata in Guanajuato challenge

This particular mission is the third out of the four missions needed to complete the entire challenge. Thus, before you even get here, you’ll first need to acquire the 2016 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Focus RS RX. If you don’t already have one, then it can only be obtained normally via a random Wheelspin. Otherwise, you’ll have to pony up for one at the Auction House. It had cost me nearly 2 million credits to buy it, so you can expect a similar price.

Once you have the car and drive it (which the first mission), the second mission will involve you completing the Tunnel Run race (Street Scene) located in the western part of Guanajuato. After you’ve won, you’ll finally be able to track down the Donkey Piñata.

Not too far from the Tunnel Race is another race, the Panoràmica Sprint (Road Race). Make your way to that race, which you’ll notice is at an intersection; this intersection is also between the two rectangular shaped series of roads at the very center of the city. Enter that middle street, which also has the yellow-colored Hotel Horizon facing out towards the intersection.

Slowly make your way up the street, and when you get to about its middle you’ll notice two buildings: one peach and one green. Right in between these two buildings is a small, unmarked side street that may not necessarily look accessible; but there are no barriers.

Turning to face the side street, you’ll spot the little Donkey Piñata. It’ll be resting on a table that’s next to an orange-colored building that’s to the left of the side street.

Press the gas a bit to ram into the donkey Piñata, and smash it to complete the and completing the Guanajuato challenge in Forza Horizon 5.

After this mission is completed, you’ll only have one more mission to then win the entire Weekly Challenge, and that mission involves you pulling off an Ultimate Drift skill within the streets of Guanajuato. Once completed, you’ll nab two rewards: 160FP to add to your Forzathon Shop balance, and five points that will be added to to the Season Progress.
