This Is How Virtual Race Tracks Are Born

Ever wonder how race tracks in modern racing games have such a realistic look and feel to them? If you’re as geeky about racing games as we are, you probably did and now thanks to the team at Turn 10, the people responsible for the Forza games for Xbox 360, will show you how its done.

In the video, the team at Turn 10 shows you how they take a real track like Hockenheim and turn it into a video game. They take centimeter accurate measurements and look out for details like elevation changes and cambers.

Forza Motorsports 4 comes out on October 11th of this year.
