TOPEKA, Kan. – WC Vision, the management group of the Pirelli World Challenge Series, has announced its continued partnership with Microsoft and its video racing game Forza Motorsport.

The new Porsche Expansion Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 will include a Pirelli World Challenge race car.

The Porsche Expansion Pack includes 30 Porsches that players can add to their garages, race, collect, and customize as well as 20 new Porsche-themed career events.

The No. 66 AXA Racing 911 GT3 Cup car that Jon Groom Racing ran in World Challenge in 2005 and 2006, is included in the pack. The No. 66 car was piloted by Lawson Aschenbach in 2006 – Aschenbach won the GT Drivers’ Championship in the car that year.

Aschenbach currently pilots the No. 1 TruSpeed Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 Cup in Pirelli World Challenge and sits third overall in the GT Drivers’ Championship heading into the races this weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, formerly Mosport Int’l Raceway.

“We are thrilled to be continuing the licensing partnership with Microsoft for Forza Motorsports,” said Scott Bove, President and CEO, WC Vision. “There are a number of World Challenge cars in Forza Motorsports including one of my favorites, the No. 42 RealTime Racing Acura NSX SC that was driven by Peter Cunningham in the series in 2002.”
