DTM Cars at Spa

Indy Cars at Indianapolis GP and Nurburgring GP


Our recurring series this season will be inspired by the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, or DTM. This is a German racing series that famously pitted the BMW E30 M3 against the Mercedes 190E 2.6 16V Evo, amongst a field of cars from other manufacturers. Unfortunately, FM5 doesn't have some of the cars that ran in DTM that were in FM4 such as the Alfa 155 and that cool Volvo wagon, but we have these to choose from:

Non-DLC Cars
1991 BMW M3
1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16
1992 Ford Escort RS Cosworth
1993 Ford SVT Cobra R
1984 Volkswagen Golf GTI

DLC Cars
1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6
1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth
1981 Volkswagen Scirocco S

Restrictions
Once you pick a car, you are locked in to that car for the season, like the Group B spec we ran this past season.
B600
No Race Tires, No Drag Tires
No FWD (Volkswagens must Drivetrain Swap to either RWD or AWD)
All other mods free

If you're interested please add your SA username and gamertag to the spreadsheet and I'll add you on live for invites to the lobby.

Online Matchmaking - A new system is being implemented that is supposed to give higher quality racing lobbies.

Forzavista - An expanded version of FM4's Autovista that is to be available for every car in the game.

Drivatars - A new way to power the AI cars, using the driving characteristics of your friends to make the AI drive more realistically.

A load of graphical/audio and Xbox Live related changes due to moving on to the Xbone.

What's gone?
No Porsches, only RUF have been confirmed for the game at this time.

No Unicorn Cars

Racing Wheels
At this time, it has been confirmed through interviews with Turn10 staff that current Xbox 360 wheels and peripherals will not be compatible with the Xbone. New wheels are being developed currently by MadCatz and Thrustmaster that will be compatible with the Xbone and FM5.

I wanna race now!
There are still a lot of us playing FM4 on the 360, pop into the Forza Motorsport 4 thread and find someone to race with.

Updates
FM5 is unreleased and is for an unreleased system. This post will be updated as more details about the game are released. If you have any info you think should be included, feel free to PM me or post it in the thread. I'll note in this section any time major updates are added to this post.

Looking forward to this, but not as much as I had the previous games. Barely have time to play any games with school and full-time work. But I'll find the time somehow. This is actually the only game coming out for either console that I want to play. I bought my 360 for Forza 2 and I certainly got my money's worth in the long run so I'm sure I will with the Xbox One. Preordered at Best Buy because I had a bunch of gift certificates and rewards.

Same here.
I'm starting to save up for a Thrustmaster TX wheel now. If I'm lucky and they're available, I'll have one sometime in February or so (I need a stand, too). To be honest, the Mad Catz wheel looks like a serious effort as well, though I never thought I'd see myself saying such a thing about one of their products. I have always thought their reputation was bargain basement and deservedly so. I'm willing to be open-minded.

As proof of that, I have an XBone and a FM5 LE on pre-order (fingers crossed I don't get screwed out of either) and I've learned one lesson from FM3 and 4: I already buy all the DLC, so I will be buying the Car Pass to save some money.

Any other early-adopters (haha, we're suckers), if you don't know me my GT is Captain Howdy 0. That's a Zero. I like to host races on the weekends. I work 2nd shift so I'm up all night and often start racing late, EST. I end up racing with the opposite side of the world a lot.

Assuming GTCC adopts FM5, that's the goon club I'll be in.

See you guys on the ground floor (retail Gods willing.)

I know there's nothing really ground-breaking about this iteration of FM, unless you count open-wheeled cars (as I am sure some of you do); but that Ariel Atom is jaw-dropping and I can't wait to lap the Tog Gear Test Track in it (assuming it's still in, I haven't been keeping up too closely) and Prague looks cool as hell.

I don't know yet why people love Spa or Bathurst so much, or why people say Abby Dabby sucks (except for the name Tilke, of course) but I, for one, cannot wait to find out... in 1080p @ 60fps.

Honk honk!

Should also note that the limited edition of the game is an $80 optional extra with the Paddock Pack. That's right kids, a special edition of the game that doesn't contain, y'know, the game.

I can sorta understand the reasoning (people pre-ordering elsewhere) and that it's not new (Dead Space 3 did something similar), but it's still a dumb idea worthy of mockery.

F5 will have sticky grass 100% around the tracks to prevent cheating.

Not to mention there will be pay-for consumables like race tires that will run out of grip and motors that will eventually stop putting out power.

Also, I'm unsure of whether they will still have the same Car Club setup as FM4 or whatever, but I'll add something to keep track of GamerTags and Clubs or whatever to the OP when the game comes out.

They said they have a new system to do community events and have a new rewards system, so they felt they didn't need to do Unicorn cars any more, if I remember right.

Also off twitter. Le Mans has the current La Sarthe circuit, Old Mulsanne and they re-added the Bugatti circuit layout as well.

If the FM4 LE is anything to go by (and with the price of a console attached, it may well not be) I'd like to buy two. One for me and one to sell once they're all gone.

We haven't had an official track list yet.

But so Gentleman Of Leisure can put it in the OP. So far we have

Prague Street Circuit
Bernesse Alps
Spa-Francorchamps
Bathurst
Yas Marina
Laguna Seca
Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Circuit De La Sarthe
Top Gear Test Track

Consider me shocked if the usual suspects on the ALMS (Or TUDOR or whatever they call it now) like Sebring, Road America, Road Atlanta and Infineon don't show up since Microsoft's got heavy ALMS sponsorship going.

Also the current rumored slate of new tracks also include Long Beach, Monza, Pacific Raceways and Lime Rock Park. So stay tuned, I guess.

They seem to be saving all the new cars till the end and most are returning. Makes sense since they only revealed the Atom lately.

Speaking of which. They are releasing new videos at a fairly good clip now. Here's a lap around a returning Sebring (That looks monumentally better than the FM3 and 4 versions) with the KTM X-Bow.

The audio better be looked at before the game ships; every time the Atom shifts it sounds like some cheap 8-bit punching sound and the bumper strips are ridiculously overdone this time around. The engine and tire sounds appear spectacular so far though.

I love the location they chose for Rally Di Positano, but I think the actual track layout itself was pretty bad and not very fun to drive around, even though the differing road surfaces were cool. I'd really like to see it redesigned to be a more fun track, because having an exotic location like that makes a nice change from the aforementioned flat race tracks.

I wonder if they'll ever add Monaco to Forza? Most games get around the licensing issues by it being a road course and choosing an alternate name, and since Forza has now introduced open wheel cars I think it would make a pretty fun addition to the series.
