17Forza 5 gets Road America as free DLC, becomes fastest-selling racing game in Xbox history [w/video]

One of the primary knocks against Forza Motorsport 5 has been its rather weak roster of tracks. Not having the Nürburgring was bad enough, but FM5 was missing out on a lot of real-life tracks that featured in previous installments - Mugello, Infineon, Tsukuba and Suzuka, to name a few.

15Viper GTS-R earns first ALMS victory in modern era

The last time a factory-backed Viper won a race in the American Le Mans Series was 2000, a season that the then-dominant Viper would've swept entirely had it not lost two of those ten races to the Corvette team.

Some motorsports fans take issue with the fact that the vast majority of NASCAR tracks are little more than a series of left turns. This is for you, roundy-round jokers. The official sport of the South is mixing in some right turns and working the brakes a bit more in 2010 with a pair of road courses.
