Click to read.The famous Twin Ring Motegi is the first downloadable track for Turn 10's race sim Forza Motorsport 2. It might be a while until the next downloadable track pack comes out as Turn 10 has stated that each pack takes about 3-5 months, a great deal longer than it takes them to do car packs, but they stated, in the "Weekly Pit Pass" that there's more DLC on the way. Very good news for Forza 2 fans.

Today's pack consists of four variants, or "ribbons" of Motegi. The first is the longest, the "Road Course," which has numerous long straights and sharp turns. It's actually one of the longer courses in Forza 2, and might prove tough tune for, as I've heard.

The second is "West Course," which is the shortest of the four ribbons. From the official site, "The West course is the shortest ribbon out of the Motegi circuit, and features two long straightaways along with two slow-speed sections."

The "East Course" is the more complex of the shorter circuits. It combines a number of sweeps, elbows, and a chicane right after a couple long straights. Get ready to perfect your braking...

Finally, the Motegi Speedway is going to give top-speed nuts their due. This track features long straights and sweeping turns, but one or two more difficult turns than in the Nissan Speedway. So braking might actually be important here to some degree.



Anyway, it's out for 400 Microsoft Points, or $5.

Have a great weekend!
