Hello Forza fans, and welcome to my world.
My name is Andrew and I’m a Lead Track Artist here at Turn 10 Studios. I started with Turn 10 in 2008 after college and worked as an Environment Artist on Camino Viejo and Amalfi Coast. On Forza 4, I took over as Lead on the Bernese Alps. My duties involve, designing the track layout, establishing visual moments, and of course leading our crack team of Artists through production.
The Challenge for this week is the Club Circuit, which is my favorite Alps Ribbon. I designed this circuit to be about flow and carrying speed. Double apex turns, brave braking zones, and flat third gear corners, this track rewards a smooth driver with balls of steel.
Fun fact; Club Circuit was originally slated to be the first track in the game as well as the only track in the demo.
I’m the fastest driver on the track team and I guarantee I’ve driven more laps around the Bernese Alps than any of you. If you think you can beat me on my track, I’ll send you back to Sidewinder where you belong. This is my mountain!
In all seriousness, good luck and I hope you guys have as much fun racing our fictitious tracks as I do working on them. I'll be lapping more and more as the week goes on, so check back here for updated lap times.

The side challenge this week is about race tracks. What is the most important characteristic of a race track and why?
I’ll be reading your replies and giving my favorite poster a unicorn of their choice. After your answer be sure to include the unicorn you want if I pick you.
UPDATE: Hey everyone, so I didn’t read the rules template very well
and thought the contest went until 8pm not 8am. So I’m going to push the end
date to Friday the 17th at 8am. Fred is going to be mad at me, but I want to
give everyone a fair chance to beat my time.
Pick the Unicorn you want for besting my time
