Top Gear’ Teams With ‘Forza Motorsport’ on Xbox

 Gamers and gearheads of the world, unite and take over: Top Gear and Forza Motorsport, the popular Xbox racing game, today announced that they are teaming up for a “long-term collaboration.” A marriage, shall we say. It all starts with Forza Motorsport 3 Ultimate Collection, which is coming out in the U.S. and Canada on October 26.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
