Top Gear USA & Forza Motorsport Display the Lexus LFA at Infineon Raceway

“Forza Motorsport 4,” the biggest racing game of the year exclusively on Xbox 360, collides with the critically acclaimed series, Top Gear on HISTORY in this week’s episode, airing in the U.S. on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 10 p.m./9 p.m. CDT.

Top Gear is a show for automotive enthusiasts.  It originated in the United Kingdom with now famous host Jeremy Clarkson reviewing some of the most exotic cars on the planet.  The crew are regularly taking vehicles to their limits and having a blast while doing so.  The show has recently gained popularity in the United States and there are now seasons of Top Gear USA being made.  During this episode, show hosts Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara travel to Infineon Raceway in Northern California to experience the Lexus LFA, both in real life and in “Forza Motorsport 4.” While Foust tackles the famed course in a real LFA, Wood and Ferrara take to the virtual version of Infineon in “Forza Motorsport 4,” each piloting their own LFA to prove, once and for all, who rules Infineon.

Unveiling the Infineon Raceway
If you’re unfamiliar with Infineon, check out the brand new “Forza Motorsport 4” track tour video of Infineon Raceway. The video is designed to introduce you to Infineon’s myriad elevation changes and challenging turns, all of which combine to make it one of North America’s most famous tracks, and a proud addition to the “Forza Motorsport 4” roster of race circuits.

Born out of the ideas hatched in a Mexican restaurant in Northern California in the late 1960s, Infineon Raceway has grown from a quaint regional track to one of the largest and most respected motorsports destinations in North America. From the white-knuckle Turn 1, to the blind crest of Turn 3a, to the highly technical chicane at Turn 9a, it’s a course that challenges even the most experienced drivers.
