Free Road America track released today alongside new car pack.

As 'Forza 5' continues to evolve by slight degrees, Turn 10 has a shock in store for players, a free add-on track. Long enjoyed in previous 'Forza' titles, Road America was one of the tracks not to make the transition to the Xbox One. Not only is the track free for 'Forza 5' owners today, but it's even described as the "first track add-on," suggesting the possibility of a second. The new track is even integrated in the game's Career mode.

Also announced and released today is the Road America Booster Car Pack, which includes the 2006 #2 Audi Sport North America R8, 1995 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1, 1968 Ferrari 365 GTB/4, 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1, and the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series. The Road America Booster Car Pack is free for Car Pass owners and is in addition to the six car packs that have already been announced.

"Road America in Forza 5 will feature the main four-mile, 14-turn main circuit. For the first time in a Forza Motorsport, Road America will also feature four alternate ribbons that will test the limits of each player’s skill. In addition, the circuit has been integrated throughout the Career in Forza Motorsport 5. Players will be able to take part in races on the circuit in both the main Career events as well as Career bonus events which are available after a Mini-Career series is complete. In celebration of the track’s launch, players will also find new Road America-themed events in Rivals Mode and in the multiplayer lobbies."
