25 New Track Logos Discovered on Gran Turismo 5 Website [UPDATES]

While poking around the Remote Racing section of the official GT5 “My Home” website, GTPlanet user Yonis made an interesting discovery: the site has been loaded with 24 logos for tracks which aren’t currently playable in the game. Here’s how he did it (hint: the images are publicly available on Polyphony Digital’s web servers if you can decipher their file names), and here’s what he found:

  1. Super Speedway
  2. Driving Park (20r60r)
  3. Apricot Hill
  4. Citta di Aria
  5. Costa di Amalfi
  6. Grand Canyon
  7. Hong Kong
  8. Ice Arena
  9. Infineon Raceway
  10. Driving Park (Kashiwa)
  11. Las Vegas
  12. Midfield Raceway
  13. Twin Ring Motegi
  14. New York
  15. George V Paris
  16. Opera Paris (Tarmac)
  17. Seattle Circuit
  18. Seoul Circuit
  19. Swiss Alps South
  20. Tahiti Maze
  21. Valencia Circuit
  22. El Capitan
  23. Cathedral Rocks (Dirt)
  24. Cathedral Rocks (Dirt Mini)
  25. Cathedral Rocks (Dirt Short)

Yonis pointed out these images are accessible under a GT5-specific image directory on the gran-turismo.com website (…/gt5/remote_race/common/courselogo/) and sized appropriately for the GT5 remote racing site. It should also be noted the tracks above have never been seen together in any GT game – Valencia was not in GT4, while Hong Kong, Las Vegas, and George V Paris were absent from GT PSP.

It is impossible to know exactly what these images are doing on the GT5 web site, though it’s tempting to speculate… El Capitan has already been seen in Gran Turismo 5 via the accidentally-leaked Red Bull “Horse Power” trailer, so we know at least a few of these updated circuits must be floating around Polyphony Digital’s offices.

Whether or not they’ll be coming in future updates to GT5 – or if they’ll be saved for Gran Turismo 6 – remains to be seen. Regardless, kudos to Yonis for this discovery, and thanks to Dylans1o for the tip!

***UPDATES***

Yet another track logo for “Super Speedway” has been discovered on the site, bumping the total number to 25. This logo is particularly interesting as it represents a circuit not seen since Gran Turismo 3. GT4 and GT PSP instead used Twin Ring Motegi’s actual “Super Speedway” and represented the track with Motegi’s logo. Though the overall shape of the original course (it was in GT2 as well) and the Motegi course are the same, their surrounding backdrops were very different.

There have also been questions about when, exactly, these image files were uploaded to Polyphony Digital’s servers. As noted by user MitsuStigi in the comments, this information is revealed in the image’s HTTP response headers, many of which show a date of March 9, 2011 or January 28, 2011. The Remote Racing website was launched with GT5 v1.06 on February 18th.

    The longer they go without releasing anything, the less likely any release becomes at all.

    The majority of people they are relying on to buy any DLC would be casual players of the game; players whose interest in GT5 will have already dropped dramatically, probably to the point where they wouldn’t even buy any DLC if it was released because they have all moved onto whatever the latest craze is.

    Unfortunately the upload dates of these images give you hope, but I think they are more of a cock-tease than a realistic prospect, because the tracks that are listed above are probably more numerous and better than the tracks the game shipped with (which was in my opinion a pretty poor track list, all things considered)

    Why would you release your grade A material after people have generally lost interest in a game to the point where the DLC won’t generate much revenue?

    For me, the lack of tracks in this game is it’s biggest problem. It has many others but with more environments in which to race I can easily overlook them.

      All will be revealed in time….

      I agree with the comments that tracks may already be embedded on the Bluray disc. They did this with GT5P (Norscheife and Le Sarthe I think) which were unlocked by some code or something for the Le Mans 24hr display set-up they had at the event.

      I would imagine that there will be a spec 2 edition. Perhaps launched in time with Forza 4, or maybe to boost sales when the game eventually goes to platinum.

      Eitherway, i’d like to see the return of Midway, Twin Ring, Costa de Amalfi, Seattle, Driving Park and Infineon Raceway. A few new premium additions to the dealership, and some motorcycles to race (and probably knock over), then i’ll be pretty happy.

      Fingers crossed….

    Hopefully it does come because it’ll add more variety for racing online, because it gets kind of repetitive.

    Grand Canyon Track was used in the 2005 GT5 Trailer, where they talk about the new way they have used to create the tracks – Lazers and scanning the areas, and I do miss Grand Canyon for rally, actually I miss more rally like tracks for GT5, more narrow tracks like in Richard Burns rally and Dirt2-3, I do hope they will arrive one day, because it’s really not that exiting as it is now ( My opinion ) PaceNotes is of course the biggest miss, but that is just gonna hang on as a dream scenario I think :0) New York is also a great track, like Infinion Race track ( Road curse), which is a must have, when Nascar is in the packets, it’s a very tough track for Nascar drivers in real life, because of the None one turn Track hehe.. Anyways I Do love GT5, so please don’t see my input as complaining, I just want more Hehe..

    LOL, It took them until yesterday to give me my bonus digital content for competing in GT Academy, which I did back in January. But they’ve got a whole bunch of new tracks all created and ready to go? Uh-huh. Maybe GT6 will be out in time for this Christmas too.

    You guys can keep fantasizing about some logos found on a website – I’m a bit too busy actually racing on a fantastic selection of tracks – in other games.

    I think the number one thing we got going is a lot of those tracks are originals – maybe all of which could be completed right now but are just in limbo waiting for the completetion of the real world tracks to complete a pack for DLC.

    Very interesting, but I don’t wanna read too far into this just to be let down later on… :(

      Considering GT5 is packed full of unnecessary extras such as museum cards, B-spec, photomode etc and missing essentials such as a decent number of races, tracks and premium cars, core Gran Turismo players like myself and many others will remain dissatisfied with this “good yet small game” until PD refocus and deliver the goods. What GT5 misses, I find with S2U and I love it!

      I don’t know who this core of GT players you refer to is, but I’ve been playing since the first one, and the last thing I want is for GT to become more like shift 2. Yes, I own shift, and shift 2, but I haven’t played shift in a week because I ran out of cars i’m interested in, and the game keeps freezing.
      In fact, Many of my long time GT friends like b-spec and photomode, though I admit most could care less for museum cards and horn collections. Granted, we don’t speak for everyone, but most of us are not nearly has dissapointed has some would claim the “core” is, and would have been very happy with what we have now if it only had twice the a-spec career events.
      It oftens seems to me that the loudest complaints from the supposed “core” seemed to be voiced primarily by people who never played any GT older that GT4, fell head over heels for hype every long term player knew was just that, and allways seem to think GT5 should be more like some other arcade racer game. If that’s what the core of GT players has become Then the i’m proud to say I am not one of the core players anymore.

      Yes, matter of interpretation has it seems purposely written in such a way has to mislead or confuse. Checked my awnser with a scientific calculator has “48/2X(9+3)” and it gives me “288”, like I originally got with P.E.D.M.A.S. and my interpretation of where to apply the multiplyer.
      If I enter it into the same calculator exactly has “48/2(9+3)”, without adding a symbol for multiplication between “2” and “(9+3)”, I get “4”.
      And of course the “(9+3) + (9+3) = 24, 48/24 = 2” interpretation certainly arrives at “2” has the awnser.
      So unless the author of the original equation gets arround to clarifying how they ment to have it interpreted, there are at least three “right” awnsers right there.
      But, on the bright side, I now understand the point of posting it here in the first place, lol. Just to mess with us apparently…
      Irony is, I found this while taking a break from calculations I was doing for “Orbiter 2010” (google it), has I was tired of doing the math for a flyby of Jupiter, and now I am going back to orbiter just because I find the tedium of space navigation preferable to this realatively basic, but mischievious little equation.

      2*(9+3) and 2(9+3) are exactly the same except in a more complex string such as 48/2(9+3). In this case, the rule is 2(9+3) will always get the priority as the absence of a multiplication sign makes it a single entity. 48/2(9+3) = 48/(2*12) = 48/24 = 2. Sebblz is right.

      Report
    3. Pointless

      A simple google search shows they are both right, with almost (note the almost) every calculator, programing language, etc, favoring the 288 awnser has they are programed with the same P.E.D.M.A.S. rules Brad used. However, not everyone is taught the same way, and in this case that difference causes conflicting awnsers. Arguing which one is right or wrong is pointless, because neither is wrong by the method applied.
      On the same note, arguing that 2*(9+3) and 2(9+3) are exactly the same thing while technically true, doesn’t wash in the real world. I’ve tried it both ways with two home calculators and a couple online calculators. 3 of them gave me 4 using 2(9+3), like brad said, and the other gave me 288. All of them gave me 288 when using 2*(9+3). Obviously that’s an interpretation problem even umongst the calculators, and that interpretation issue has otherwise been agreed on allready humanwise. Humans make the calculators, so the interpretation issue would likely transfer to the machine has well.
      Fact is, people can argue about this untill they turn blue in the face but it won’t get them anywhere.

    I smell 5 DLC track packs of $5 each :p

    Add these 25 tracks, make all cars premium, and what do we have? probably GT6.
    I don’t expect allot from these logo’s, they don’t prove anything, especially since High Speed ring has been listed, its an old track that is practically the same as the Motegi track, so there wouldn’t be any use to making High Speed ring. This makes me think the logo’s aren’t important.

      Well, you’re jumping way ahead. I don’t think we’ll ever see 1,000 cars all premium.

      25 new tracks however is much more realistic and extremely exciting! Many of those tracks are PD originals which could be rendered already or even completed between release and now.

      Something tells me that ultimately this is PD’s chance to try DLC and we definitely won’t be disappointed in the future – but at the same time I have my reservations because with new systems and processes come new problems.

    This would be good if some of the tracks become available. Remember, in old trailers for GT5, there were tracks shown that aren’t in GT5, like that drag strip at the airport with the 787B racing with the airline in the background. I recall another shot where a rally car was racing at the Grand Canyon. And we already know about the accidental shot of El Capitan. Along with the tracks that were in GT PSP, I think we should expect a SERIOUS update in the near future.

    … now if only there were some clues about new cars (Audi RS4, RS5, TT-RS, VW Golf GTI, Golf R, Scirroco R, Ford Focus RS, RUF recent models, Koenigsegg, Lotus Exige, Hyundai Genesis Coup, Pagani Zonda F, Cadillac CTS V sedan and coup, Aston Martin One 77, Ford Mustang Boss 302, Super Snake, Nissan GT-R Z-tuned, KT X-Bow, Capparo T1, Ariel Atom, Mazda RX8 R3, juuuuuuuust to name a few).

      Yes, the tracks look fine when you’re racing around, but on some (Autumn Ring for example)the people in the grandstands look flat as cardboard cutouts. Its a pretty minor issue to me since any photo mode pics get taken with a slow shutter to blur the background just enough to not matter.

    If they release these tracks for DLC then they should call the pack “First strike”

    And also….they should come up with one generic interior that would suit all standard models, along with rim changing capabilities for them as well….

    Report
    1. SavageEvil

      Not sure about the interior, but allow a correct hood cam view for all cars. It shouldn’t be too hard as the camera can be moved to wherever they want since the game is on the fly polygonal design. Not sure why they haven’t included this from get go, but it would help with the issue of no in car view for standards.

      Report
    2. BWX

      They probably didn’t add a hood cam view because the hoods on the standards are low res textures and low poly and would look like crap close up.

      Actually, now that I think about it, that must be the answer to why no hood view. They would have to at least create high-res textures for the hoods of all standard cars that use a hood cam. They didn’t have the time to do it, or it wasn’t a priority for them.

    If a GT5 add-on or expansion-pack disc came out with all these tracks and a lot more a-spec events that doubled or tripled the current 127 race count in GT5’s a-spec, I’d pay up to $50 for it no problem. It would have to tie into current GT5 a-spec though, and extend XP levels and basically give us a lot more to do with all the cars and tracks in GT5 and really and truly expand GT5. If it was only these tracks for practice and multiplayer, with no a-spec expansion, I wouldn’t pay more than $25 for it.

    The oblem is this makes way to much sense though, and it seems to me if something makes sense, PD and Kaz do the opposite. Basically the chances of something cool like this happening to GT5 anytime soon are slim to none. That’s the reality of the situation. We can hope though, just like we hoped for damage in a-spec mode, really good AI, GT4 sized a-spec, save points in endurance races, more rally events in a-spec… weather and time change on more tracks, multiple setup save slots per track (or any at all)… Stuff like that.

      Nice set of courses, but Super Speedway has changed and it’s also part of Twin Ring Motegi and the one from GT2 is different. It has that canopy leading into the last corner which is no longer there. I agree with the Rome circuit from GT of old, was a much better course. The Spain course in GT5 is pretty lame and uninteresting, Rome Night would be a great remedy to this. I’m about to go play GT2 some more as I’ve got some nostalgia going right now. Tahiti Road here I come. PD needs to add that random race series generator like they had in GT2, that was pretty awesome and in included tuned up autos to race against too. Red Rock Valley was my favorite course to boot, looks just like a real high tech race course.

    I feel that GT was poorly produced, as much as I love the game, its quality is lower than gt4.

    These tracks should have been in the game from the offset, I mean 800 cars from gt4 but hardly any tracks?

    They wasted so much time showing off and not enough time to build it. I feel this will be free of plus members and £14.99 for everyone else.

    Sony and MS would never give you free stuff with a racing game, it makes no buisniess sense even to Yamuchi san.

    DLC with updated standard cars (the top 50 in OCD) and some of these tracks for free is cool with me, but for the love of god CHANGE THE EXP RATE.

      Yeah there is off-line physics, and then a completely different feeling on-line set of physics. On-line has less overall grip with same exact car/track/setup off-line. On-line physics tend to be much more “oversteery”. Some car/track combinations are greatly affected by these differences, some car/track combinations don’t seem a whole lot different from off-line to on-line. It’s a pretty glaring issue with GT5 that somewhat spoils on-line racing to a certain extent.

      Well, maybe Kaz and PD have realized the error of the a-spec ib GT5 and will fix it so there are more races in this new add-on or expansion pack.. GT5 spec II, GT5.5, c-spec, whatever they might call it. That is optimistic and wishful thinking though for sure. What is more likely is that we might see these in 4 more years in GT6, but a-spec in GT6 has even less races, like 50.. and it sucks like GT5 a-spec but shorter. GT4- 522 a-spec races, GT5- 127 a-spec races, GT6, 50 a-spec races. That would suck, but maybe they’ll kill A-Spec completely, who knows. I wouldn’t be surprise if they did.

      You do realize that Remote Races are actually run on your own PS3 like any other race, and that it uses the same resources as A-Spec. If they were going to bother adding these tracks at all, they would have to be downloaded to your ps3 in DLC or update form, and could then be used for any mode they wanted.

      I want these tracks. I hope that any DLC tracks come with full day and night/weather cycles.

      Doubt we’ll see infineon as the Infineon logos which are on the audi R8 race cars are blurred out in GT5 :(. Meaning there was licensing issues or something :(

    Ooer! I do hope they release a content update with more tracks and races!
    Apricot Hill, Midfield, Seattle.. Some nice favourites there.
    And Valencia

      I highly doubt this will be an update. My money is on that this is just an image database because all of these tracks have been in past games at one point or another. Until I see 16:9 HD gameplay of a premium car in cockpit view with 15 AI, I will not come to believe these are for GT5.

      They are just images, after all.

      24 tracks? That’s an entire game for some developers.
      I doubt very much we’ll see any of these tracks in GT5.
      It would take PD years to do-up all these tracks to GT5 standards.

      yes it would take years to do-up all. But they alread have been 6 years… so maybe there is some hope?

      Keep in mind this doesn’t “confirm” anything – these are still just images on a web server.

      I will believe it when I see it. Only then will I unretire my GT5 copy since late December. This game sorely needs tracks/events.

    Oh please dear god introduce some new events and not endurance. I really do hope we get some massive updates soon, including changes to the god awful xp system. Granted they get some slack due to whats happening back in Japan.
