It’s a new world, both on and off the track.” The 2006 debut of the Ferrari 430GT has served the Risi Competizione race team well thus far, with third place finishes at the 12 Hours of Sebring and the Lone Star Grand Prix.

Taking our partnership with Risi to the next level will enable us to engage the drivers as well as a world class support team to push Forza Motorsport 2 on the Xbox 360 to a whole new level of realism. Plus, the Ferrari 430GT is HOT!” stated Alan Hartman, Turn 10 Studio Manager.
