Niall chose the S 614 Ferrari F40 at Road Atlanta:
"I have an S700 version of this I absolutley love to drive, but the stock version is pretty damn nice too. Old school, no frills racer, but fast with lots of grip. Plus, it looks great and the in-car view is hot.

As far as the the track goes I'd narrowed it down to a few I thought suited the car but chose this as there's lots of places for overtakes, a nice straight to open her up, and one or two places for a bit of madness to happen."

Nik chose the F 157 Aston Martin Cygnet at Camino Viejo's Extreme Layout, in sunset conditions:
"I chose the Aston Cygnet for a few reasons. I like the low-powered front-wheel cars because you can really chuck them around and you can put the power down early. They're not that difficult to drive so can be real levellers and encourage clever racecraft. The Cygnet (apart from being plain awesome as it's an Aston) however is a little bit unpredictable at the rear, so it needs that bit of care.

I chose Camino Viejo Extreme because I find that long circuits are most fun with low-powered cars. The Nordschelife is perfect for this, but perhaps too narrow for a full field of cars. We've just done Le Mans and it has four long straights. So Camino Viejo with its technical portions and only one long straight fit the bill perfectly. It has a few corners where being clever with braking v lifting and choosing your line can help improve lap time."

Pete chose the R1 978 Ferrari F333 SP at Silverstone International:
"If you have functioning ears, you will understand the car choice. Aside from the massive noise, it has massive grip and massive acceleration, making it one of the most fun to drive cars in Forza 4. It also looks the dog's bollocks from any angle, including the cockpit.

Silverstone's International layout has made for great racing in the past and the Ferrari just eats it up. Almost enough track for it to stretch its legs fully, but not quite. This might not be the cleanest race of the season, but when the car is this good to drive, its hard to be too concerned..."
