Gran Turismo’s Updated Seattle Circuit, Apricot Hill, & Ginza District Revealed in Video

January 15th, 2013 by Jordan

Much like the 2014 Corvette Stingray’s trailer introduced Willow Springs Raceway, so too has the new Acura NSX Concept trailer made some exciting revelations for Gran Turismo fans.

In addition to what appears to be several never-before-seen locations, two of the most popular original tracks to the GT series which were absent from GT5 can be seen in apparently updated form: Seattle Circuit and Apricot Hill Raceway.

Before continuing, it is important to remember that just because these new tracks and locations have been shown does not imply or suggest they will be released as downloadable content in Gran Turismo 5. Curiously, the NSX video as posted on the official Gran Turismo YouTube channel makes no mention of GT5 in its title, unlike the Corvette Stingray clip posted just one day before.

Seattle Circuit

Apricot Hill Raceway

For comparison of the track in GT4, see here.

Tokyo’s Ginza District

For a comparison photo of the real C’BON Cosmetics store sign, see here. Also note the buildings displayed in the reflections on the bumper.

Unknown Tunnel

Shown during a collection of shots taken at Special Stage Route X, this tunnel appears to be some kind of spillway.

Unknown Mountaintop

This location has yet to be identified. If you recognize it as a real-world vista, please share your comments below or in our forums.

    I wonder if PD will have some togues (mountain passes) on GT6. Also, it would be nice if Ferrari is willing to license out their Fiorano Circuit to PD so it can be scanned for GT6.

      the touge will be cool and I have been wanting that for a while now, but I doubt that Fiorano will ever be licensed because Ferrari wouldn’t want their lap times beaten on their own trace track :D

    Apricot Hill is one of my all time favorites as far as the original circuits go. I was so disappointed when it wasnt in 5. I hope we are getting it in 5 and dont have to wait for 6 to get it back. If it is for GT6 though I would be happy if we are getting all the missing tracks back

      We should also be getting Willow Springs and Bathurst!

      It was reported some time ago that Bathurst will be in GT6 as some reader of GTPlanet met and spoke with the guys who were mapping it! They told him GT6!!

      I’d like cars too, but not the same we got with GT5. Not too many exact copies, and absolutely no standard cars. I’m more worried about competitive AI and a lasting offline career mode.

      Tracks, definately need MORE tracks!

    Interesting.. I did [url=http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=262430]this poll[/url] some time ago and these news made me check it again with some interesting discoveries:

    Seatle Circuit is #1 with 53 Votes
    2nd place is a tie between El Capitan and Trial Mountain but the last is already in GT5 and uninteresting in this case
    3rd place is… Apricot Hill! (although tied with Midfield)

    So can this hint that PD is actively looking on GTPlanet? We know some with connections to PD are but this just seems too weird/strange to me.

    Now, how long might it be until we see El Capitan and Midfield in a teaser?? [sarcasm]Place your bets[/sarcasm]

    • Jan. 16, 12:35pm
      swynder

      I always liked to drive around Midfield, it´s one classic track of the GT series, and in my opinion, i´d rather see it than Apricot Hill, only thing i wonder is that why isn´t SSR11 in the top tree….

    • Jan. 19, 11:54am
      ScotteDawg

      swynder, go to the top of the page, scroll down just a little and you will find, on the right hand side of the page, a box in which you can type something. Next to that is another box that says “search site”.

      Type in SSR11 and click on the specified box. Your question may just be answered!

    I REALLY hope we get Seattle – it’d be so cool to virtually race my favorite super cars around my home city. And it’d be even cooler if PD released an HD up-scale of the classic track (with the king dome, which has been gone for several years now), and a newer version with current scenery… It’s a bit to ask, but man, I’d love that!

    And considering that we’re seeing a good three or four unreleased GT5 tracks show up in these videos, I could now actually believe people claiming that some sort of “Spec III” update could be coming. I hope there is, and that it addresses more pressing issues than just a few cars and tracks, minor physics tweaks, and updated features. I’d like to see an addition to A-Spec, no more separate online and offline physics, and at least a SLIGHT upgrade in the AI algorithming. That or seem way to balance AI cars, like allowing them to have upgrades or certain tunes. Maybe even AI cars could show up in rare paints and aero kits…

    Ok, enough dreaming for me…

    • Jan. 16, 1:58am
      Since80three

      As much as I love GT5, I couldn’t agree more with your statement. The the fact that there are constant complaints is because of the way PD handles things like this. They know what we want, they show that they have it, but choose to implement it in the most retarded way.

    I feel like none of this content is coming to GT5
    No Seattle, Apricot Hill, Ginza, Willow Springs (from the corvette video), and the tunnel thingy (If that’s even meant to be a track)
    At most we’ll get the NSX for free as a final update, and maybe 1 more car pack with a paintable/tuneable C7, another GT-R and some other cars that aren’t that much of a big deal

    Imo they are holding these tracks for GT6.

      On a side note, I’m not trying to hate on PD saying they don’t care for GT5.

    Hey PD… looks like your patronage is about 75/25 for new (or old) tracks as opposed to Honda’s new hybrid? Get the picture? Thank you in advance for the new (or rehashed) venues. Now how about a 2013 Viper cruising through the Complex String, then taking some turns in anger at Red Rock, drifting through the underpass at R11 and finishing out with a tank slapping screeching halt at Costa di Amalfi or Citta di Aria? Fade to reality…..

For those of you not in the know, that has always been the 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, and 24 Hours of Le Mans. The last driver to win it was Mike Rockenfeller in 2010.

    Well PD, great job to you. It looks like they really know how to respond to their critiques, because I simply don’t believe they would dangle 4-6 tracks infringing of us as we’ll as the NSX without intending to add to the game. Don’t hold back on us PD, give us something to tie us over for a while. Maybe make an event out of it, give us like 1 track a week for a while on Tuesdays for $1.99 or buy them all in advance for a price. As far as car DLCs, you can pretty much just lay that on us, or do like 1 DLC’s worth per week, 4-6-ish, but make them $1 a pop so we can choose which cars we want like with the last group of car releases. That way, if ya spread it over the weeks like an event, you won’t get people starting to whin again after about about 5 weeks.

    I know I speak for us all when I say, WE REALLY APPRICIATE YOU KEEPING OUR CURRENT GRAN TURISMO GAMES ALIVE, EVEN AS YOU LOOK FORWARD TO FUTURE GAMES. THANKS PD!”

    I have noticed yesterday what Jordan stressed in this post. There’s no mension of GT5 on the video. The video is aimed at promoting the car more than the game.
    If GT6 is really for PS4 (unfortunately) and uses the same engine as GT5, it’s natural that the graphics are similar. I’m not saying the video is from GT6 but it doesn’t mean it’s from GT5 also.

    What am I doing today?

    Getting hyped…

    I loved Seattle! Don’t remember Apricot Hill, though. That first corner in Seattle was a killer as was the little dip left onto the final straight. Creamed at speed many times there. You could catch good air by times too in the city uphill run.

      I think Apricot Hill would be the only fictional GT5 circuit without an unrealistic tunnel, if that helps ring a bell. I just looked the track up on YouTube

    I remember a long time ago, when I was only a few years old (I’m actually only 13, and no, I do NOT like dubstep), I was playing Gran Turismo 2 and racing on Seattle Circuit in a silver Renault Clio V6. I remember taking that first smaller one and going, “Whoa, cool!” Then, I hit that bigger one, and I felt like I was really flying. Ah, the good old days when everything was so fun…
    Anyway, it looks like this is going to be a HUGE year for the Gran Turismo series.

    • Jan. 15, 3:52pm

      That first smaller JUMP. Not sure why I didn’t clarify that. I also just thought that it would be awesome to have Midfield back, too

    Too much stuff. Makes me think it’s GT6.
    I hope all this is for GT6. That makes more sense.
    GT5 is way too bland to have this new content, alone.

    • Jan. 15, 3:53pm

      Whatever dude!! If new content is available then I want it ASAP!! I don’t see them jumping ship on the game at least not at this time, but late in the year I suppose!

    It smells like GT6 coming to ps3.. damn i wished it to be launchgame for PS4.. KY told earlier big news coming, it surely seems so! But anyway whatever will happend this all new information reminds me of oktober 2010.. just can’t wait to hear more!!! :)

    • Jan. 15, 3:34pm
      TomBrady

      I suppose GT6 being on PS4 would be good for Sony but it may actually hurt PD. I don’t think the sales will be as good if everyone has to get a new console to play it.

      Frankly, I’d be happy if it was on PS3 because I don’t want to spend 700 on a console, and GT6 is enough to make me do it. I’m hoping it’s on PS3, and it ends up being everything GT5 could be. They should hurry up though, if it takes 4 years for GT7 to come out after the release of PS4, they’ll be hurting themselves even more. The word disappointment is often mention in GT5 reviews, and it’s almost entirely because of development time. The longer the development, the more people expect and no game will meet all expectations. Making people wait leads to disappointing thme

      GT6 will not meet the expectations of everybody – there are too many groups who feel that the game should represent what they want it to be instead and it’s impossible to satisfy such a broad spectrum completely.

      Only for those people who have played more than one GT game, will it meet expectations.

    I think with Spec 3.0 and these new tracks, I will be taking time off work for the first time to play GT5, good times to be had by all. Cheers PD and GTPlanet. I still have to buy the GTPedia, and may I suggest some GTplanet Tees (with Nurburgring track) at your store?

      Now that you mention it, I can see it pretty well. I think it’s great, the One-77 is one of the most beautiful cars ever made.

    I think the mountain vista looks like it could be Colorado. Probably could be a lot of places though.

    In the video, if you’re quick, you can catch a glimpse of a semi-truck driving down SSR7. Can’t wait to drag race a tractor trailer; after all, I am a big mother trucker.

    It’s good that this news report has been posted. Too many people talking about this being a new DLC pack. We’ve seen some old tracks before and they were never released.

    the most we could get out of this is probably the NSX, but I’m doubtful about it.

    It’s good to keep your hopes high people. This has certainly sparked my interest in GT5 again, but remember this is PD we are talking about. we can’ expect much from them when it comes to extra content.

      Seattle is nice, but I’ve never liked the “jumps”, too unrealistic.

    • Jan. 15, 2:27pm
      SavageEvil

      Seattle in GT5 or 6 will be rolling hills and unlike those angular jumps from GT 2-4. This should be a great track and will definitely show how well physics are realized because you’d have to line your car up and be careful of how you use throttle to be sure you don’t cause over rotation causing the front end to tip too soon. This track will wreak havoc with those balls to the walls drivers, I say bring it on. Would be awesome if Red Rock Valley and Mid-Field Raceway were also completely updated just like these other courses, PD’s fantasy courses have always been very intriguing to drive on…fingers crossed that PD also recreated Complex String for GT6.

    • Jan. 15, 2:36pm
      FormulaKimball

      Seattle > all other city courses indeed! Also, R1600Turbo, go to google maps and look at James St between 2nd Ave and 5th Ave, those jumps really are there… Though maybe GT exaggerated them a bit :)
