As the official racing simulator for the whole racing season, Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios today announced the sponsorship of Risi Competizione‘s Ferrari 430GT for the American Le Mans Series (ALMS). The car’s paint scheme will display Forza Motorsport 2 and Xbox 360 on the hood of the car.
Risi Competizione as a racing team has been one of the most consistent race teams on the circuit. To date, the team has won two championships, achieved 29 podium finishes and has a race completion ratio of 84% along with a podium place ratio of 64%. Ferrari’s 430GT has served the team well this far, with third place finishes at the 12 Hours of Sebring and the Lone Star Grand Prix.
Forza Motorsport 2, scheduled for release this Holiday season, is a sequel to the fully-customizable driving simulator. It will feature authentic simulation physics, “bone-jarring” damage and “photo-realistic” graphics as well as licensed tuning and customization options.
