Forza Motorsport 5 Debuts Xbox One Racing Team and Bathurst Track

From Xbox Wire

Xbox Australia with Triple Eight Race Engineering today announced that they are launching the Xbox One Racing Team in the 2013 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. To celebrate, Xbox Australia and Turn 10 Studios, the makers of the “Forza Motorsport” series, have also announced the Bathurst track, Mount Panorama, will be included in the highly-anticipated racing game, “Forza Motorsport 5” set to launch exclusively for Xbox One on Nov. 22, 2013. 


The Xbox One Racing car is the latest Holden VF Commodore and comes equipped with a 5.0 litre naturally aspirated V8 Holden, which has an estimated output of 640bhp and a top speed of almost 300kph. The car will be driven by international champion race car drivers Andy Priaulx (UK) and Mattias Ekström (Switzerland). The Xbox One Racing Team will be accompanied by the support of Xbox ambassador and Team mentor, Mark Skaife and Triple Eight Race Engineering Team Owner, Roland Dane. 


Developed by Turn 10 Studios, “Forza Motorsport 5” is a cinematic automotive journey designed exclusively for the Xbox One, and the team is excited to bring Bathurst to the title.



Dan Greenawalt, Creative Director at Turn 10 Studios said, “Few circuits have been requested more by the worldwide Forza fanbase than Bathurst, and for good reason. It holds a special place in motorsports history as one of the most demanding and challenging circuits in the world. In addition, the timing couldn’t be better to finally bring Bathurst to the Forza series; with ‘Forza Motorsport 5’, we’re able to bring the circuit to life in a way that nobody else can. “Through the use of cutting-edge technology like laser-scanning and our new materials-based graphics engine, we can now precisely reproduce the characteristics of every corner, straight and detail to sub-centimeter accuracy; from the narrow twists and turns of the Esses, to the thrilling rollercoaster sprint down the Conrod Straight. This is the Bathurst that racing fans have been asking for years and we’re proud to bring it to them in ‘Forza Motorsport 5.’”

On Oct. 10-13, fans will be able to catch a real-life glimpse of the newest circuit featured in “Forza Motorsport 5” before it launches exclusively on Xbox One in November.

Yep, it’s really real.
