Xbox has released the all-new “Forza Motorsport 5” video documentary, presenting a behind-the-scenes look at how the passion for teamwork and technology is shared between the makers of “Forza Motorsport 5” and Audi’s reigning FIA World Endurance Championship racing team.

Developers for “Forza Motorsport 5” visited the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans race at the Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans, France, together with Audi Sport Team Joest, the most successful team in modern endurance racing, as they prepared to defend their 2012 title in the preeminent endurance race. Commonly known as the Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency, 24 Hour of Le Mans race teams and vehicles have to balance speed, technology, and perseverance in a race that is widely regarded as one of the toughest in all of motorsports.

The video features interviews with racing drivers from Audi Sport Team Joest, including Tom Kristensen, 9 time winner, 24 hours of Le Mans, and fellow Audi Sport Team Joest R18 e-tron quattro drivers Lucas Di Grassi, Andre Lotterer, and Benoît Tréluyer along with the Audi Sport’s head of the Le Mans Prototype project, Christopher Reinke and “Forza Motorsport 5” Creative Director Dan Greenawalt.
