The American Le Mans Series has teamed up the Forza Motorsport franchise in a two-year partnership that will see tracks and cars from the sports car racing series appear in-game and a host of community activities launch prior to the release of Forza 4 on 11th October, 2011.

Turn 10 Studios, creators of the Forza Motorsport video game franchise, and the ALMS will partner across a range of events and content, including:

* Community activities and events hosted by the America Le Mans Series and Forza Motorsport 4
* Racing circuits and cars from the ALMS, including Sebring, Road Atlanta, Road America, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, and 26 ALMS cars
* Catch the racing action live by tuning in to all of the American Le Mans Series race broadcasts via ESPN3 on Xbox LIVE

Additionally, fans will have the opportunity to test drive “Forza Motorsport 4” at select race events before it launches in October.

“Our partnership with ALMS signifies the joining of two great automotive forces,” said Alan Hartman, Studio Manager of Turn 10 Studios. “We're pushing the limits in Forza Motorsport 4 and taking peoples' love of cars to a new level. Xbox and Forza Motorsport 4 will without a doubt be the best place to enjoy the iconic American Le Mans Series if you aren't at the track racing yourself.”

Interesting announcement, but I personally am not that bothered - would prefer to play through the proper Le Mans - presumably that's there (I'd be amazed if it wasn't) in which case I have thought that the cars would be available anyway. Plus I know Forza 3 had the tracks mentioned, so like I said … meh!

Not that I claim to be a huge racing fan, but I'd never even heard of an American Le Mans Series - what's wrong with the real one - not enough commercial breaks? :rolleyes:
Nice to see this partnership.
