Looks like our friends at Team Sahlen are moving to RX-8s for the Rolex series next year. I like the fact that the artist rendering is from Forza2.

Well, come to the season kickoff at Daytona. They'll be there. We'll be there, too.

This so cool to see them getting into a new car , it is allways exciting to see new cars from a old team .

Alas no it does not. It does have the 914 though, which makes for a nice D class car. But, don't get FM2. Wait until next month when FM3 comes out. I am liking the look of their RX-8.

I know it's hard to see on this image, but notice the logo below the number? Yep, it's us.

Will the cars be built by Speedsource/Sylvain Tremblay? From what I understand, they currently build every RX-8 raced in the Grand Am series.

Yep, looks like it's a SpeedSource/Riley car. I believe all of the Rolex RX-8s except like one were built by SpeedSource.

There is a 944 turbo in Forza 2.

I'd go ahead and pick up FM2 if you don't have it, as the platinum edition is everywhere now for only 20 bucks with the release of FM3 around the corner.

Hope they do better then the Vette effort - it seemed they struggled with the cars.
