Gran-Turismo 5 promo at El Capitan – Click above to watch the video after the jump

There are some truly fanatical Gran Turismo gamers out there. Case in point? GT Planet Gamer Yonis was searching the GT5 website when he unlocked the key to a treasure trove of unused track titles. Yonis reportedly stumbled upon the image directory in a GT5-specific part of the site, and none of the tracks are available on the game.

el capitanOur first thought when we saw the track logos was that the folks at Polyphony Digital could find it in their hearts to offer the tracks at a future update. GT Planet points out that El Capitan was already spotted at the Red Bull "Horse Power" trailer, so we know at least some of these tracks can be on the way to our PS3s. Another possibility is that Polyphony Digital could be saving the tracks for a later pay-for-play add-on to GT5 like the Need for Speed franchise did with the Ferrari Racing Pack for Shift.

Head over to GT Planet to check out all 24 track logos, and you can hit the jump to watch the GT5 trailer with El Capitan one more time.

      Update - they have found a 25th logo!

      Do they have bathurst (mt. panorama) yet? Or eastern creek raceway?

      Here's my few gripes with GT5:
      The menu layout is not very good
      1000 cars? you don't have access to all cars at one time, I don't want to have to trade online for a car I like just to get it.
      No rewind/forward feature in replays.
      Engine sounds could do with some improvement.
      As far as driving goes, it's hard to beat, the physics are great especially with my Logitech G27 wheel. Future DLC would be great, just look at Forza 3, new cars and tracks will always be welcome.

      I want my 5 mile Driving Park oval! :P

      Bringing back old tracks is great, but how about you fix the game first.
      -Constant screen tearing
      -Fuzzy shadows
      -Can't save in the middle of championships, a feature in GT4
      -The standard cars and tracks look terrible
      -Standing starts on the Top Gear track
      -No brake upgrades?!

        Oh yeah you nailed it. BTW they need to turn some of the standard models into premium. Seriously how is the Veyron a standard model but VW bus is premium?
        • 3 Years Ago
        -No brake upgrades?! really 0.0

      I think El Capitan was in prologue.
      • 3 Years Ago
      People still play GT5? ;)

      Yawn. You guys can still rationalize every stupid design decision that permeates this massive letdown. I'm too busy having fun with Shift 2 Unleashed to care.

      Oh, and Forza Motorsport 4 hits this October. Turn 10 looks to twist the knife in Polyphony Digital soon enough.

        Not from what was shown in the recent trailer that was taken down from MS. The cars still have that plastic look when racing , the cars look on par to GT5 premium cars in Forza studio mode where you can walk around, open doors etc. By why would i want to just look at the best models in studio mode? By the way Kaz from GT5 is working on turing the standard cars into premium cars as we speak. Those issues some one mentioned above have been corrected, somebody must not own a PS3 and is rehashing old news, time to get current. The only thing that stands to dat as a an issue if you really can call it that is the brakes upgrade.

        I don't care what people say, 50million plus copies of GT and its still selling strong , somebody knows what there doing , and many million of users still come back to the GT franchise religiously for quality, quantity and a great simulation racing experience. If Gt was a flop it was died many moons ago on the PS1.

      I thought Mid-Field was very nice.
