Australians probably.

 

UK/Japan/New Zealand/Australia are where GTS charted highest. In December 2018, it was announced that it had 7.5 million players online worldwide, and in the UK, it tripled the sales of Forza Motorsport 7 at launch.

 

It's doing well and has a big community, definitely outside the US, more proof that we on the board don't matter at all in terms of sales. :p

I only mentioned Australia because my friend was big into GT4 and he showed me the Australian servers and how they race all serious. They say, "Respect the track mate." and if you bump someone's car they will boot you from the race. :p
