Plus - win an all-expenses-paid trip to some hotshot driving school in Arizona

"Beginning at 12:01 a.m. PDT, Thursday, Sept. 4 through 11:59 p.m. PDT, Sunday, Sept. 7, Gold members in Xbox One markets can play the newest entry in the highest-rated racing franchise of the past decade, Forza Motorsport 5, in entirety and for free," reads the NewsWire post in question.

ID:	15568The Grand Tour of Prague - a "special multiclass endurance in-game race event" will be available for play throughout this weekend. If you complete it and drive at least 130 miles in the race, you'll get a new title and badge for your Forza Motorsport 5 profile.

US-based Xbox Golders who take advantage of the offer could also win "an all-expenses paid trip to the three-day Forza Motorsport Grand Prix Road Racing Class at the esteemed Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Arizona". Sounds seismic.

As for Forza Horizon 2 - a demo for Playground's second open world festival racer will release on 16th September.
