Gran Turismo Sport Adds Five Cars And Autopolis Track


For their March 2019 update, Gran Turismo Sport has added five new cars – the 1989 Mazda Eunos Roadster [NA Special Package], the 1995 McLaren F1 GTR-BMW [Kokusai Kaihatsu UK Racing], the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, the 2013 Pagani Huayra and the much-ballyhooed 2019 Toyota/BMW GR Supra RZ – and the “AUTOPOLIS” race track in western Japan.

From the official Gran Turismo website, a description of AUTOPOLIS:

“The AUTOPOLIS International Racing Course [Total Length, 4,674m. Elevation Change, 52m. Number of corners, 18. Longest Straight, 902m] is located in the middle of a mountain range in the Oita Prefecture in Kyushu, Japan, AUTOPOLIS has played host to many international racing series including Formula 1. It is known for its challenging layout, and while the high-speed Sector 1 is relatively straightforward and quite simple in nature, Sectors 2 and 3 are much more complex, with consecutive corners of all speed ranges. The track travels uphill at a maximum slope angle of 7.2 percent and goes downhill at a 10-percent slope angle, meaning that plenty of elevation changes await the driver. Getting through without making a single mistake takes a lot of concentration. In addition to the International Racing Course layout, a Short-Cut Course that makes Turn 10 the final corner has also been included.”
