4Forza Motorsport profiles courageous paralyzed racer

It's easy to look at racing video games as just a time waster or a hobby. In reality, though, they're often powerful tools for aspiring racers to learn tracks, race craft and how to set up a car in an easily accessible, risk-free environment.

I was excited for Forza Motorsport 5.

We're usually pretty enthused every time Turn 10 Studios unveils another of its monthly car packs for Forza Motorsport 5. It means we'll have an entirely new batch of vehicles to play with when the work day finally ends, whether that means we race, tune, style or simply crash them. This latest car pack, though, the Meguiar's Car Pack, is arguably one of the most interesting that we've seen.

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. Also missing? Road America.

The reviews for Forza Motorsport 5 have been just as keen as the few grudges held against it, those gripes chiefly being the paucity of cars and tracks compared to FM4 and the difficulty of purchasing the elite cars.
