The Mount Panorama circuit in Bathurst, Australia is the latest track to be announced for Forza Motorsport 5.
“Few circuits have been requested more by the worldwide Forza fanbase than Bathurst, and for good reason,” said Turn 10 Studios Creative Director Dan Greenawalt. “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.’”
The reveal comes alongside the announcement that Xbox Australia and Triple Eight Race Engineering will be entering a real-life Xbox One Racing Team in the 2013 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. They'll be racing in the Holden VF Commodore seen below.
Forza Motorsport 5 is out on November 22nd, launching alongside the Xbox One. You can read our latest preview of the game here.
