Turn 10 Studios officially revealed and named the fictional oval track coming to Forza Motorsport later this year. The track is Eaglerock Speedway and it’s been teased since the Xbox Games Showcase in June.
While the oval track was showcased and those paying attention could see it would be called such a name, the Forza social accounts made it official on Tuesday (8th August) with a short track reveal video.
Eaglerock joins 13 other announced venues of the 20 that are expected at release. Most recently, Road America was revealed over the past weekend as the IMSA WeatherTech Series took on the course, one of the cars competing being one of the cover cars for Forza Motorsport, the Cadillac GTP.
There are no details on the new track, like how big it is or how high the banking is. It’s definitely a fictional venue, but if I had to say what it might be based on, it seems to me about the size and banking (perhaps a bit more sharp in turn radius) to a track like New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Maybe it’s like a cross between New Hampshire and Martinsville Speedway, although the outline speaks Dover Motor Speedway without the banking. Either way, it is pill oval shaped as opposed to D-oval like many of the larger cookie cutters on something like a NASCAR schedule.
The track reveal on the ‘X’ app (formerly Twitter) also revealed that there is a new car to add to the confirmed cars list. Forza Motorsport will include the 2020 Audi RS 3 Sedan, a car that is “New to Motorsport” but currently exists as content in the Forza Horizon franchise.
While this is the older generation of the RS 3 being from 2020, we assume since the car is modeled and licensed in Horizon already that it is an easier transfer than doing a whole new car at launch. Maybe we get the Typ 8Y of the Audi RS 3 at some point, but for now, it’s a guarantee to see the third gen Typ 8V model.
Just a few more months now until we can dive in! The new Forza Motorsport is set to release on 10th October 2023 for Xbox Series X|S and PC via the Steam and Xbox Apps.
