When Polyphony Digital released the schedule for the FIA GT Championship EMEA Regional Finals, we suspected a new track would be revealed at the event — just as the Austrian World Tour introduced Fuji Speedway.
The competitors got a sneak preview of the new track at the event last night and it has now leaked: it’s Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, a real-world track that will be entirely new to the GT series.
The 4.655 km (2.892 mi), Grade-1 FIA circuit is one of the most famous in Spain and has hosted the Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix since it was constructed in 1991. It is particularly well-known among the F1 community as a testing and development track, so it is frequently a place we see new cars during the off-season.
Here’s Lewis Hamilton’s pole-worthy qualification lap from the Spanish Grand Prix this year:
This will be the 12th real-world circuit to arrive in GT Sport, and we can confirm it will be arriving in the game’s next update.
We will get our first look at the track on the FIA GT Championship EMEA Regional Finals live stream broadcast on Saturday, so be sure to tune in for the first gameplay footage.
