The latest racer to exit the Microsoft camp, Forza 3, has reached Gone Gold status and will now be hitting the production and distribution channels for its release later next month, or October 23rd if you wish mark it on the calender or book time off work.

The exclusive to Xbox 360 racer will also be accelerating onto our beloved console a little earlier, thanks to the announced playable demo, which will be hitting the Xbox LIVE marketplace on 24th September.

The new demo lets you get behind the wheel of five of the world’s most amazing cars on the full circuit of the game’s Camino Viejo track. Five playable vehicles will also be included in the demo:

• 2007 Porsche #80 Flying Lizard 911 GT3-RSR
• 2010 Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro
• 2009 Ferrari California
• 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR
• 2009 Mini John Cooper Works

You will be able to drive all of the cars in the demo in full cock-pit view as well as experience damage, rollover and try out the game’s new rewind feature as you take turns on a beautiful Spanish mountain course inspired by the Montserrat region just outside of Barcelona, Spain. When logged into Xbox LIVE, the demo will also support official leaderboards for lap times, giving you a further taste of what players will experience in the full game.

With today’s Gone Gold announcement and the recent announcements around the fan-designed R8 V10 5.2 FSI quattro and the exclusive Limited Collector’s Edition (which includes 10 exclusive bonus cars, VIP community status, and more), there has never been a better time to pre-order Forza Motorsport 3.
