The motorsports season is set to begin this weekend with the annual running of Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway. To no surprise then, Forza Motorsports is preparing for this as well. Starting Thursday January 28, Forza fans will have a chance to get their own taste of the Rolex 24 endurance event by downloading the Alphinestars Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 6.
In their latest video uploaded to the Xbox Youtube Channel, Microsoft highlights the cars that could be downloaded from the pack. Right as the video begins, all seven of the cars which are part of the pack are seen sitting on the backstretch of the historic Daytona International Speedway. In typical Forza style, the video then continues on to highlight the intimate details and other parts of the cars.
The lead and most famous car of the pack is last year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona winner, the 2015 Ford #02 Chip Ganassi Racing Riley Mk XXVI Daytona Prototype. This very car will be in the field for this weekend’s race which can be seen at 2 p.m. EST on Saturday, Jan. 30 on Fox Sports 1 in the U.S.
Two cars with Daytona history are also included in the pack: The 1990 Mercury #15 Whistler, and the 2005 Pontiac Aztek. Other cars not associated with Daytona in the pack include the 1967 Sunbeam Tiger, the Subaru SVX, the Toyota Corolla SR5, and the Afla Romero Milano Quadrifoglio Verde.
