Gran Turismo 6 is right around the corner, and more details about the game are surfacing, including information about the game’s new tracks. In addition to featuring the infamous training ground of GT Academy, Silverstone Circuit, the game will also include the Bathurst Circuit in Australia.
Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit, Bathurst, to give it its full name, is the home of motorsport in Australia. Located in New South Wales, it has a rich motorsport history – the first race held there was the 1938 Australian Grand Prix and it now hosts the Bathurst 12 Hour and the Bathurst 1000 races amongst others. The challenging circuit is 6.213km (4 miles) long with surprisingly steep inclines, a twisty, narrow section across the top of the mountain which proves difficult to master even for the very best racing drivers, and very little run off area to allow for mistakes.
The game will be releasing on the PS3 on December 6th 2013.
