Gran Turismo 6 to Feature Mt Panorama

by

As an Aussie, there isn’t much of a better news story to come home after a hard day’s work and write than the news that Australia’s most famous race track, Mount Panorama (commonly known as Bathurst) will be making it’s debut in the racing simulator series in Gran Turismo 6.

Confirmed by both Sony Computer Entertainment Australia and Polyphony Digital this is clearly a big deal for Australian racing.

“We are very pleased to be able to include Bathurst in our expanded selection of race tracks available in Gran Turismo 6,” said GT creator and Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi. “Since its inception 15 years ago, Gran Turismo has listened to fan feedback and added extra features so that we now offer 1200 cars and 33 circuits from all across the world. It seems only right that the legendary Mount Panorama circuit is included as fans will now have a chance to drive one of the toughest tracks out there. Described by some as Australia’s very own Nürburgring, this is a formidable track that will provide an exciting new challenge for PlayStation gamers.”

Gran Turismo 6 is scheduled to be released in December this year.

Are you as excited about this as I am? I would love to know what car you plan to take around the fabled track first.
