Today Sony Interactive Entertainment and Polyphony Digital announced a brand new update for their racing game Gran Turismo Sport.
The update will come tomorrow bringing a welcome Christmas gift to the game’s playerbase.
First of all, we get seven new cars including three safety cars.
- Ford GT ’17 (N700)
- Porsche 911 Carrera RS Club Sport (993) ’95 (N300)
- Toyota Crown Athlete G ’13 (N300)
- Volkswagen Golf I GTI ’83 (N100)
- Toyota Crown Athlete G Safety Car (N300)
- Renault Sport Mégane R.S. Trophy Safety Car (N300)
- Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Safety Car (N700)
On top of that we’re getting the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and its hellish “Corkscrew” corner.
“Total Length: 3,602m, Elevation Change: 55m, Number of corners: 11, Longest Straight: 453.00m
WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca is a race circuit situated 100 kilometres south of San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley in Northern California, United States. A technical circuit made up of mid-low speed corners, it is encircled by desert so grip can be an issue as the surrounding sand often blows onto the track.
Therefore, drivers need to be able to maintain precise control over their speed at all times as any errors in estimation will result in them going off track or crashing.
Its dynamic elevation changes are shaped by the landscape and are a signature of the circuit, with the famed 15-meter downhill-plunging ‘Corkscrew’ its highlight. Laguna Seca is a circuit that offers thrilling racing not seen elsewhere.”
Speaking of the Corkscrew, it also appears in new Scapes, and the update comes with the inevitable new GT League single-player rounds.
- Beginner League
2 new rounds added to the ‘Z Heritage’.
- Amateur League
2 new rounds added to the ‘Super Formula Championships’.
- Professional League
2 new rounds added to the ‘Midship Challenge’.
- Endurance League
1 new round added to the ‘Gr.1 Prototype Endurance Series’.
