Gran Turismo for PSP - click above image to watch the video

In terms of tracks, we'd guess that while the Nürburgring gets the most press, Laguna Seca is number two. And with good reason, as Mazda's Raceway is fast, technical, beautiful and challenging. Plus, because the famed track's in Caramel, California, you get gorgeous, picture postcard weather for ten months of the year. If not more. Then, of course, there's the famous Corkscrew, and all of the hijinks that it ensures.

So large is Laguna's legend that Sony is now using to the track to sell its newly PSP ported version of Gran Turismo, the ever popular racing game. And as far as commercials go, this is one of the few we wish were a few minutes longer. The 'vert takes place on track at Laguna Seca where a Corvette ZR1 is chasing down a Ford GT and Nissan GT-R. And is that Tanner Foust? We think it is. Also, bonus points for whoever can identify the car the Blue Devil passes at the very beginning. Okay, we've stalled long enough. Make the jump to watch the video.

      First of All, Laguna Seca is an amazing track. I've had the pleasure to drive on it multiple times, and it's awesome! Glad to see it's getting this publicity!

      Secondly, the track isn't in Caramel (it's spelled Carmel by the way.....) it's in unincorporated Monterey County, Salinas if you wanna be specific.

      I also have to agree that I think it's a BMW.

      @fmwso: Can't wait till the PS3 version comes out either!

      looks like they pass a silver E60 M5 in the game but they couldn't get one in real life so used someones dark gray/purple E36 M3 instead

      E39 M5 between 2001-2003 you can tell because the tail lights look "Crystalized" as opposed to the opaque e39 m5 tail lights of 1999-2000.
