    Yesssss!!! When the A90 was revealed, I'd hoped it would be packaged with Fuji. Now that we know Fuji is coming, I've felt we're due for one or two Toyotas. AE86 and camouflage Supra road car. Anyone? Anyone?

    That’s not the original! Or is your point you’d rather that one??

    Nismo Festival also coming up.
    Ken-Meri and hakosuka Skylines could be in.
    I'm really glad we have another wide circuit. It's so good for Sport Mode.

    1984 HPX (Honda Pinninfarina eXperimental)
    Later prototypes were then named NSX (New Sports eXperimental) wonder what that car became

    Great to hear that news, i hope they will be some old Super GT cars with it like the HSV, NSX, Skyline and the Supra. :bowdown:

    N300 as seen in the picture sure gives hope. All the 276hp Japanese cars would fit right in

    I don't know if they changed anything in the last years, but I hated racing in this track in GT6.

    The 80's/90's layouts featured in GT4 were alright, though. But we probably won't get them...

    When Fuji opened in 1963, it hosted F1 in Japan for the first time from 1963-79.
    Since we got F1 cars from the 2010s and 1980s, we might get a F1 car from the 1960s but specifically Japanese to fit the Fuji theme.

    I expect the addition of the Benz motor carriage, complete with a 10-lap weekly race :D

    On a more serious note, I'd really like to see the old layouts being added, too.

    I'm probably in the minority when I say I like the modern Tilke Fuji over the older ones.

    Fuji OK, i prefer the 80´s or 90´s version, the new one is boring in some sectors, but is free.
    Waiting for the free cars, maybe some Super GT (GR.2) this time because of the track.

    I didn't know Tilke was behind modern Fuji. Easily his best work then.

    I am more than happy to see Fuji Speedway return to GT. It is an enjoyable circuit but Spa, Silverstone and Motegi would be my preferred additions.

    With Toyota owning Fuji Speedway perhaps we could finally see the rumoured TS020 GT-one being bundled with it. We really are due an LMP2 car at this stage too.

    Fuji, hmm average track. All I remember is the beautiful backdrop and easy races there.

    This means of course that PD is spending extra time to make the original 15km layout of Spa!

    Fuji is OK... If i had to bet I'd say that we will get cars like the Mazda RX8,Nissan 350/370 Z,Toyota AE86 in this update

    I'd love to see Spa but Fuji is great and for sure a better track for wheel to wheel racing. IMO it's one of the best tracks to overtake and defend from being overtaken with its width, long straights and long corners.

    On the other hand, another possible T1 nightmare in Sport Mode dailies. :D

    Just read some reviews in the Supra thread. I feel it in my bones, the A90 is next.

    PD has been working pretty fast in recent months, leaving hope that most of the PS3 tracks and premium cars will come back reworked for PS4.

    Ascari
    Daytona
    Indianapolis
    Laguna Seca
    Motegi
    Silverstone
    Spa Francorchamps

    Not to forget the older original tracks, but at this rate GT Sport can come far if support continues into 2019.

    Not a bad track to race on, but track limits could be a big issue.

    Can't say Fuji is anywhere near the top of the list of tracks I'd like to see return, but something's better than nothing.

    I thought the same thing. Wide exits, like RBR, I suppose.
