    I came here to post the screenshot, but I was 7 minutes late.
    :rip::lol:

    Anyway, I think we will get the track with September's update.
    This will be a great opportunity to showcase it and test it with the top drivers, then release it after one week or so.
    With the addition of Fuji I'm expecting more Endurance GT League events there.

    Fuji Speedway is one of my two most favorite Japanese circuits, the other being Suzuka.
    There's something magical about the surrounding Fuji area, and its landscape is breathtakingly beautiful.
    I wonder how majestic the mountain will look as a backdrop this time.

    My dream track here would be a Circuit de la Sarthe / Nordschleife hybrid, a very long stretch of road combining
    Fuji Speedway, Mount Fuji and Aokigahara Forest, as seen in the map below.

    As much as I was expecting Spa, I'm good with Fuji (& was also expecting that course to show up eventually.)

    Any guesses what new cars might be released also?

    Considering it has one of the longest straights in motorsports — more Kei cars, obviously. :p

    My guess would be the same as it's been for a while now: mostly GT6 revisits, with a new car or two thrown in. I kid about the Keis, but I'd really like to see the Cappuccino back...

    Another excellent free update. Hopefully we don't see endless "SPA!" complainers. Don't get me wrong, I want Spa too, but I can't knock Polyphony for their steady stream of free updates. Really makes Gran Turismo a lot of fun when we constantly get new content!

    I knew this track would show up sooner or later, but not looking forward to it. Always thought this was one of the most boring tracks ever in a GT game. I've literally fallen asleep during races here.

    It was scanned a couple of months ago for the next GT.

    Actually, we also offer GTO before
    He's not sure but thinks it was the twin turbo.

    I always hated this track, never got good at this one.

    I'm more interested in the cars that'll probably come with this, like the LFA that is the best car ever put into this franchise.

    The final turns are decreasing radius corners, so trail braking and late apexes is the key there.

    That’s all the advice I can offer :p

    Oh I know, but I just hate that track so much, I just don't like it.

    For me, this is a better addition than Spa. Can't wait to see if we get cars with it too for some real classic GT nostalgia.

    Hopefully more race cars and not as many vintage cars
