A First Look at Spa-Francorchamps in GT Sport (UPDATE)

UPDATE: The official Gran Turismo channel has released a video of Spa, with NYC GT Championship Manufacturer Series champ Cody Latkovski taking players on the tour:

The cat is very firmly out of the bag now. Fan-favorite and most requested track Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is on its way to GT Sport.

Most of us will have to wait until this afternoon’s grand final at the Nations Cup to get a first look at the circuit. However the public areas at the PlayStation Theater on Broadway happen to have a little treat for anyone wandering by: two driving rigs for general use, one running the Spa-Francorchamps track.

As GTPlanet happens to be on the ground in New York, we figured it’d be rude not to have a quick play. Site owner Jordan Greer braved the queues to put in a lap time, using the Super Formula Dallara SF19:

Although not yet confirmed Spa looks set to come to GT Sport with next week’s update, along with the first appearance of a wet weather circuit, and five new cars, all of which are from Japanese brands.

Meanwhile in New York there’s still half of the event to go. Yesterday’s Manufacturer Series resulted in a fourth different winner from four events, with Mercedes-Benz making a step up from its runner-up spot at the Nurburgring to take the title.

We still have the Nations Cup to look forward to, with a prize of an automatic berth in the World Final in Monaco in November. The final race there? Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, in the Red Bull X2019 Competition — which should be flat through Eau Rouge.
