The Xbox booth at this years E3 was completely packed with new games for the Xbox One.  Taking up a majority of the space at the booth was Forza Motorsports.  They had the latest version of Forza Horizon 2 setup for all to try out.  It was a single player mission with 3 cars to choose from.  They also had the recently released version of Nurburgring there on a triple screen rig.  This rig was equipped with the new Mad Catz pro wheel that we were also able to try out for the first time.

Lol on the layout fail.  Nice pickup Alan.  Well I think they got the track surface correct but may have missed the actual layout. 

And Jason,  I did not ask about that.  I wonder if it is as simple as 3 xboxes, and 3 copies of the game like t was on the 360 versions.  I will try to find out an answer to that question though.

Please do find out what you can Shaun, I'd appreciate that!! I have triple screen using my PC......playing Forza in triple screen would  be amazing!!! I was told that the xbox one does not have system link capability....hence wondering how they did it!!! But I can't see any other way in my opinion!! And no.....I can no way afford another 2 xbox ones....so if that is the case......I'll stick with triple screen on PC!!!!!

Heheheh, did anyone else notice that the Nurburgring version that FM5 now has isn't exactly spot on 100% accurate? They have the track in a supposed 24h layout. However it's incorrect. The 24h layout does not run the GP turns 2, 3, and 4 Omega. It uses the old Castrol-chicane still. So no, not 100% accurate to any current race layout. Fail.

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.
