The latest free update is now available for Gran Turismo Sport. And once again, Polyphony is hiding a few gems amongst the usual bug fixes, one of which will prove very much a crowd pleaser.
Despite its initial line-up and post launch additions, there was one track that was notably missing. However, that has now been rectified in Patch 1.28 as the studio adds the Fuji Speedway track along with nine new cars and three new events.
The selection of cars are rather generous, featuring two Porsches and a meaty Dodge. The full list reads as follows:
- Alfa Romeo GIULIA TZ2 carrozzata da ZAGATO CN.AR750106 ’65
- BMW M3 GT (BMW Motorsport) ’11
- Mazda RX500 ’70
- Plymouth XNR Ghia Roadster ’60
- Honda NSX Type R ’92
- Nissan Fairlady Z 300ZX TwinTurbo 2seater (Z32) ’89
- Porsche 911 GT3 (996) ’01
- Porsche 911 GT3 (997) ’08
- Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe ’06
Then we have the track itself. The infamous circuit is sited near the foot of Mt Fuji and has welcomed competitors since 1961. But don’t be fooled by its 1.5km straight; there are enough technical corners to test your braking bias. Not to mention the gradient in the latter half. To keep you busy, the Fuji Speedway GT layout is included alongside the more traditional Fuji Speedway F layout, with both being playable in reverse.
Finally, three new events have been added to the GT League and aim to cater for all levels of drivers. These are:
- The Passion of Dr. Wankel – Beginner League
- Real Circuit Tours – Amateur League
- Group 1 Cup – Professional League
We think you’ll agree that that lot should keep you revving for a while. But are there any tracks or cars you’d like to see added to Gran Turismo Sport in the future? Park a comment in the box below.
