There’s some heated beef between Forza fans and Gran Turismo fans. Both camps claim that the other is the inferior racing simulator. By this stage in the game, though, it’s safe to say that both Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport are the top of the crop when it comes to realistic racing, and both offer their own set of intuitive features and mechanics that no true racing fan could deny.

In the newest developer documentary from Turn 10 Studios, gamers get a very detailed glimpse into just how much work goes into re-calculating, re-constructing and re-engineering a real-life track in the digital world of interactive entertainment. And I’ll be the first to say that it looks like the process would give most normal people a throbbing headache, especially when they start whipping out the GPS tools.

As you can see, there’s no short-cuts or truncating going on in the Turn 10 camp. GT fans may not like the Xbox 360 exclusive but you at least have to give the developers props for going over and beyond to bring gamers one of the most detailed racing simulators yet.

You can look for Forza Motorsport 4 to launch for the Xbox 360 when October arrives, or you can learn more about the design and development process for this gorgeously gigantic racer over at the Official Forza Motorsport Website.
