Ford to Feature GT6 in Goodwood Festival of Speed Events

Gran Turismo 6 58 June 23, 2014 by

Ford has announced the 2015 Focus ST will be revealed in a special presentation at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 27, and GT6 will be prominently featured in the company’s booth – along with former Top Gear Stig, Ben Collins:

Global Reveal for New Ford Focus ST at Goodwood Festival of Spee

“Ford also is teaming up with Sony Computer Entertainment to stage the first-ever “virtual versus real” race on the hill. On its first run each day, the new Focus ST will compete in real time against the Focus ST featured in the Gran Turismo®6 game for PlayStation®3.

“A designated gamer at the Ford stand will match skills against Ben Collins – formerly The Stig of Top Gear – with the action displayed on big screens throughout the festival. Visitors to the Ford stand also have the chance to record their own times on the Gran Turismo 6 simulators.”

Ford’s announcement adds to an already packed roster of Gran Turismo-related events at Goodwood, including an in-game course update, an Aston Martin ride-along, Vision Gran Turismo concept car displays, a GT Academy wildcard competition which will be attended by Jann Mardenborough himself, and numerous “GT6 gaming experiences” hosted by Nissan, Alfa Romeo, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen. Kazunori Yamauchi will also be in attendance.

GTPlanet will be at Goodwood to provide coverage of all the show’s announcements. Stay tuned!

NOTE: The original version of this post implied the 2015 Focus ST would be in GT6. However, after reaching out to Polyphony Digital for confirmation, “there is no info about the new Focus ST coming to GT6 as of now,” and Ford’s announcement should not be taken as confirmation that the new car will be in the game.
