Turn 10 Studios continues the track reveal video series for the upcoming Forza Motorsport title introducing Lime Rock Park and the fictional Hakone Circuit.
Lime Rock Park is a motorsport road racing venue located in Lakeville, Connecticut, United States, a hamlet in the town of Salisbury, in the state’s northwest corner. The circuit was built in 1956, and is, therefore, the nation’s third oldest continuously operating road racing venue, behind Road America (1955) and Willow Springs International Motorsports Park(1953).
Lime Rock is 1.50 miles of uphill and down dale, a track that looks deceivingly simple but is immensely challenging to drive quickly. Lime Rock’s history is inextricably entwined with that of sports car racing. Almost all of the sport’s greats have raced here, from that industry-changing Formula Libre race through the SCCA hay days of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s in Can-Am, F5000, Trans-Am, and Atlantic as well as the Camel GTP and ALMS championships. From the mid-1990s onward, Lime Rock has seen everything from ground-pounding NASCAR stockers and modifieds to the technological tour de force IMSA prototypes.
The Hakone Circuit is a fictional track located in Japan and is inspired by the Hakone region, which is known for its beautiful scenery and hot springs. The circuit is a high-speed Grand Prix circuit, with a variety of elevation changes and challenging corners, including a hairpin turn and a long, sweeping S-curve.
Currently, there are 18 tracks confirmed for the new Forza Motorsport:

Key track features:
- Dynamic weather system – The weather in Forza Motorsport will be fully dynamic, and it will change in real-time. This will affect the track conditions, making it more challenging to race in wet or snowy weather.
- Rubbering in – As cars race around the track, they will deposit rubber on the track surface. This will make the track grippier, but it will also make it more difficult to overtake.
- Track temperature – The track temperature will also affect the grip of the cars. In colder weather, the track will be grippier, while in hotter weather, the track will be more slippery.
- Living crowds – The crowds at the tracks will be fully animated and will react to the race in real-time. They will cheer for their favorite drivers and boo the ones they don’t like.
- Multiple layouts – Many of the tracks in Forza Motorsport will have multiple layouts. This will give players more variety and challenge.
Forza Motorsport will include a mix of over 500 classic and modern cars and 20 real-world, and fictional tracks to race them on. The game features a new career mode called Builders Cup, where players can build their own team and compete against other teams in a variety of events. There will also be a multiplayer mode that supports up to 20 players.
The new Forza Motorsport title features a new dynamic weather system that changes the track conditions in real-time, as well as a new damage system that shows realistic wear and tear on cars. The physics engine has also been overhauled, and the game is said to be the most realistic game in the series to date.
The Forza Motorsport racing game is scheduled to be released on October 10, 2023, for the PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. However, you can Pre-order the Forza Motorsport Premium Edition or the Forza Motorsport Premium Add-Ons Bundle to play five days early on October 5th.
