We will begin by first looking at and solving the treasure clue for this challenge. The treasure clue this week states: ‘Driving close to traffic may be daunting, but on the highway this challenge is rewarding’. This clue is accompanied by a picture of a 1982 DeLorean DMC-12 driving very close to a blue Mazda Speed3 traffic car. Judging by the clue and the accompanying photo, we can easily say that the clue can be solved by getting on the highway and driving close to the traffic in order to get some Near Miss skills.

There is no vehicle requirement for this challenge but if you are feeling nostalgic, you can pick up any 80s vehicle of your choice and complete the challenge with it. Once you have acquired some Near Miss skills, you will get the notification that you have completed the challenge, and the treasure chest is now unlocked on the map. This week, the treasure chest is sitting near Sierra Verde Dam and Gran Puente. We have marked its exact location on the map below:
