For those of us who aren't able make this weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed, now there's a reason to be even more jealous of those in attendance. Polyphony Digital has announced that starting today, Goodwood attendees will be able to experience an exclusive demo of Gran Turismo 6 on the very track they are visiting. The rest of us will be able to enjoy the 1.86-kilometer hill climb when the driving simulator goes on sale later this year.

Using cars such as the Zagato TZ3 Stradale, Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 and Ford GT, players will be challenged to virtually beat the record-setting, 41.6-second course run of Nick Heidfeld in a Formula One car, which still stands from 1999. Those with fast times will also be able to vie for a "wildcard" spot in this year's GT Academy. Be sure to check out some of the game play screenshots from Goodwood in the gallery above.

      They are challenged to beat Nick Heidfeld's F1 time in a GT car? Do the people at Polyphony Digital know anything about cars/racing at all?

      GT6 needs more new tracks, I'm sick of some/many of the tracks that have been in GT for ages...
        • 2 Years Ago
        Silverstone and Bathurst both confirmed, and they've announced 1 new track each month for DLC. I'd say we're covered.

      Does all of the additions really warrant a new game? Isn't this just GT5 with what should be more downloadable content?
      • 2 Years Ago
      With games like "Drive Club" "Project Cars" etc..... I really wonder how Gram turismo plans on being taken seriously. GT5 was a big disappointment to me. I'm a car guy so I obviously played the crap out of it. It could have been much better. Especially since most of the cars were ported over from previous versions of the game. This fact was quite apparent considering that the side glass and window moldings on some of the cars looked as though they were grabbed from an old 16bit Sega Genesis game! KAZ, what do you have up your sleeve?

      Woot, the christmas break of 2022 will be awesome now.

      Sweet! Goodwood!... is it me? or do the graphics really not look that great? The cars models look good, but everything else looks pretty bland. The only part of the scenery that looks nice in my opinion is the sculpture w/ the open wheel cars on it.

        Yeah, because you know the most important thing to look at when you're racing is the scenery... right?
