I cannot think of any real world tracks with full alternate layouts so taking a guess its a new fictional track.

I wouldnt get your hopes up either way, the menus are littered with cars and options that don't exist or have been removed it's just a way of saying 'this is the game you could have had'

There's a new chicane just before the chicane so I'd guess that that's where the normal and alternate comes from (one with, one without). There's also a cut-through at the end of the second main straight which was blanked off in previous Forzas, so if that can be used both ways then it would explain the West and East.

I bought the 5 cars, was only 4 quid, and I really wanted the Daytona, the rest are a bit meh.

Road America is great to have back...though I thought it would look...prettier this time around.

First up, this is in danger of being the best implementation of a DLC track in Forza to date. Not only is it available to everyone courtesy of being free, and therefore is likely to be used, but there's even tales of it being implemented in single player parts of the game too.

Which makes it more of a shame that it appears to have been rushed I'm not fussed in the slightest about the graphics being no better than FM4 standard as I didn't think that was bad at all, and far better to put the effort into more important aspects. But the certification is a mess - at one point I was over 4 car widths off track and the game still counted it as clean! The new chicane also seems extremely rough too - far rougher than I would expect on a track, although it may be the case that the local council surfaced it in real life as well as in game.

There's also the ever-present drivatar issue too. I only ran one 4-lap free-play race, and turned off collisions to avoid getting too annoyed with the game. And these were the results:

Click the image to open in full size.

Doesn't look so bad does it?, but if I were to tell you that at the time of racing the #1 time was 1:50.xxx and the #2 time 1:54.xxx then those 6 times in the 1:40's hint that T10 have implemented some serious rubber-banding into the game

True, but this is some of the most obvious I've come across (even further off track than you can go at Eau Rouge)
