Turn 10 has released two new direct feed gameplay videos of Forza Motorsport 5, showing off two of the game's open-wheeled cars at Silverstone and Indianapolis.
Originally an RAF airfield used in World War II, Silverstone was home to bomber groups that utilized its long runways to get airborne with heavy munition loads. Thankfully, after the war was over and car enthusiasts abounded, the airfield was leased to the Royal Automobile Club. Ever since the first crude race course was established, cars have been flying around its tarmac. While the Bridge section and Luffield complex have made the track more technical and improved safety, Silverstone is still a home for high speed. Recent changes including an expansive paddock building and track configuration make Silverstone more epic than ever before. You can see these for the first time in Forza Motorsport 5. What better way to appreciate its historic surface than in a British-built track car whose acceleration and overall speed rival purpose built race cars of the highest order.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway
For more than a century Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been America's crown jewel of racing. Nicknamed "The Brickyard" since it was – until 1961 – a bone-jarring all-brick circuit. Now, just the start-finish line remains bricked in remembrance of racing days gone by. Indy's two-and-a-half-mile rectangular oval is made up of four quarter-mile turns, two 5/8 mile straightaways and two eighth-mile "short chutes." Complementing the historic oval since 2000 is the infield course, which incorporates the southwest oval turn to make up its 2.6-mile circuit.
Forza 5 will be released alongside Xbox One on November 22.
