“Dream Car Championship” GT5 Seasonal Event Now Live

Gran Turismo 5 64 July 3, 2013 by

While some of you may no doubt be attached to the recently released 2013 GT Academy demo powered by Gran Turismo 6, it’s worth noting that GT5 is still running strong with weekly updates to keep you interested, and this week is no different.

This week’s challenges are all about the “Dream Race Cars” of GT and it’s all about speed; five expert level challenges touring such locations as Tokyo R246, Circuit de la Sarthe, and Cape Ring are what await, and the rewards are just as high as they’ve come to be in these challenges.
