Turn 10 Studios has revealed the full list of talent
featured in the Forza Driver’s Cup as the Voices of Motorsport in Forza
With a total of 16 automotive
personalities, the list includes popular names such as Ken Block and Magnus
Walker, and these voices will be heard throughout the Career Mode and more
particularly in Showcase Events. These events include Top Gear Limo Bowling, as
well as Gymkhana Focus – which is a one-on-one against professional Hoonigan
driver Ken Block.
The other Voices of Motorsport featured in
Forza Motorsport 7 can be found listed below, alongside where their automotive
roots originate from:
Disappointingly, the list has no names from
The Grand Tour. That means no Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, or James May.
Those cinematics from Forza Motorsport 5 will go down as the franchises best
ever in my opinion. There’s also no names from Top Gear Season 24. It would
have been cool to feature Rory Reid and Chris Harris, and even Eddie Jordan,
Sabine Schmitz ‘The Queen of the Ring,’ and host Matt LeBlanc.
The long-running Top Gear Partnership does
continue in Forza Motorsport 7, however, with the return of Top Gear-branded
events and the Test Track, and of course Charlie Turner, editor-in-chief at Top
Gear magazine, being present in the Voices of Motorsport. It doesn’t extend as
far as it did in Forza Motorsport 5 or Forza Motorsport 6. You may remember the
Top Gear Car Packs, and the trailer for Forza Motorsport 6 narrated by Season
23 host Chris Evans. We didn’t have one of those for Forza Horizon 3, which
shows the partnership is being slowly phased out.
Overall, it’s a good list, Shannon McIntosh
is a fantastic addition, as is Ken Block and Magnus Walker. One can hope that
none of the voices as are quiet as those from Forza Motorsport 6’s Porsche
Expansion, in which you could oftentimes barely hear them.
