Game: Forza Motorsport 5

Platform: XBox One

Publisher: Microsoft Studios

Release Date: 22/11/2013

We've known for a while that the Top Gear licence will be heavily integrated into Forza Motorsport 5, but we've yet to actually see the TV show's fabled test track in the game…until now!

Turn 10 Studios claims that the improvised figure-of-eight test track at Dunsfold Aerodrome has been "meticulously recreated with unprecedented accuracy" in Forza Motorsport 5, and – judging by the initial batch of in-game screen shots that accompanied the press release – it's pretty hard to argue against the Forza developers.

The material also sheds some more light on what to expect in the game as a result of FM5 seemingly being the only racing game to possess the official TG licence – not only will the Test Track be available to race on in the game's career mode, but players will be awarded the "Some Say" achievement upon beating The Stig's lap time (as teased last week with this video).

This is on top of the TV show's three presenters providing their own narration for the ForzaVista car tours and career mode intros, with the clip embedded below featuring the vocals of one Jeremy Clarkson for – we assume – the build-up to a race involving some pretty high-end, high performance supercars…


No doubt our resident Top Gear fanatic Martin will be leaping with glee at this announcement, but do let us know what you make of Forza Motorsport 5 and the Top Gear content it'll feature in the comments section below, on our Facebook page or in our Forums.
