GT Sport update introduces Spa-Francorchamps and new cars
Gran Turismo Sport’s 1.47 update is now live, bringing with it a new track and four new vehicles.
Following the update, players are now able to race around the legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. This circuit is located 40km Southeast of Liège, Belgium and has played host to numerous racing events over the years.
“This is a high speed technical circuit that has hosted everything from F1 to endurance races over the years, and the 7+km long track utilizes the mountainous environment of its location for its many ups and downs,” Polyphony Digital President Kazunori Yamauchi added in a PlayStation Blog post. “For this reason the track is the very definition of dynamic, including many famous turns such as the high speed uphill corner ‘Eau Rouge’, the ultra-high speed left hand ‘Blanchimont’, and the ‘Bus Stop’ chicane has been the scene of many famous battles.”
Also available now are the following four new vehicles:
- Porsche Taycan Turbo S ’19
- Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce ’15
- Mazda Demio XD Touring ’15
- Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.8 AMG ’71
Finally, new rounds have been added to the GT League, including two for the Group 4 Cup, two for Real Circuit Tours, two for the Nostalgic 1979, and one for the X2019 Competition Endurance Series.
