Forza is famous for its long lineup of cars and Forza Motorsport 7 won’t be any different. The game, due for release on on September 29th for Ultimate Edition, and October 3rd for Standard and Deluxe Editions, will feature more than 700 cars to race with. Probably the most relevant for Australian racing fans is the latest build from the Supercars Championship.

This year James Courtney’s car, the #22 Walkinshaw Performance VF Holden Commodore has been diligently captured and represented in the game. For those who are fans of other Holden’s (like Red Bull Racing), there’ll of course be liveries available from the community that’ll scratch that itch. In terms of other manufacturers, the news isn’t so good, with the most recent Ford Falcon Supercar, being last year’s 2016 Ford #55 Supercheap Falcon FG X and the 2014 Volvo #13 Volvo Polestar Racing S60 STCC and 2015 Mercedes-Benz #9 Erebus Motorsport E63 AMG V8 Supercar. Sadly there’s no love for Nissan’s Supercars in the game.

The V8 Supercars Championship in Australia is the premier road racing series Down Under. While many Aussie racing fans hoped Forza 7 would finally be the title to deliver a second Australian track, unfortunately the legendary Bathurst track at Mount Panorama, will remain as the only Aussie circuit. Looks like we’ll have to pin our hopes on Forza 8 now, or look elsewhere like Assetto Corsa that has community mods for basically every VASC track on the calendar.
