How Turn 10′s Game Director likes to roll!
Turn 10 Studios is a place chalk full of automotive enthusiasts, so when the opportunity presented itself to work with Anthony Marino, founder and editor of Audizine.com we were more than happy to oblige. It’s no secret that Forza Motorsport 3 is a game built, and designed for automotive enthusiasts and gamers alike, and our goal with the Forza franchise is to bring new faces to the Forza community to share their passion for cars.
After a record-setting sophomore season in the GRAND-AM KONI Sports Car Challenge Street Tuner (ST) class, APR Motorsport announced today it will compete both ST and the Grand Sport class in 2010.
The team will campaign the sixth generation Volkswagen GTI again in ST, while debuting in the GS class with the new Audi S4. The team launched its contenders during a barbecue held Saturday at APR’s Performance Campus in front of a crowd consisting of international press, sponsors and enthusiasts.
While we had to cancel our trip to APR’s annual BBQ, our bud Josh is there to brings us some great news out of the APR Motorsport camp. APR picks up after STaSIS dropped its SPEED WC program at the end of 2007. This will also bring Ian Bass and Audi back together. Along with APR entering the GS class, Farnbacher Loles Racing will be entering with some BMW M3 GT4′s.
QuattroWorld.com also announced that it will be a premier sponsor of APR Motorsport’s Audi program and will function as an official media partner throughout the season.
Here’s to a short winter!
Building off of an amazing 2009 season with their 2009 VW GTIs, APR continues their momentum by stepping into the GS class. They will campaign the S4s alongside a pair of 2010 Mk6 GTIs which will continue where they left off in the Koni Challenge ST class.
Head over to QuattroWorld for more pics and complete news.
Inside Line put a nice comparison test together and really sounded unbiased throughout which makes it that much sweeter in the end.
Josh over at quattroworld.com jumped in a new 2010 Audi S4 and left it with high marks even in the “DSG” category. Personally, we do not know why the DSG is disliked so much, even when its been proven to work in the 24hr Nurburgring race. Even his 4yr old daughter went as far as to ask why it was faster than his car! Josh drives a 420HP Stage 3 2000 S4, so that hurt.
