    Well, what more else could it be than Laguna Seca?

    Why couldn't the NY event get a NY track?

    It could be any reasonably well-known racetrack on the planet.

    Laguna Seca is an American track that has been included in many previous GT games, and the event is in the USA.

    But then again there was no obvious reason why Autopolis would be included in the game earlier this year, yet it dropped just before the Paris World Tour event.

    I won't be disappointed with whatever track they include in any case.

    While Laguna Seca is a good track, I've been thinking of another track like Daytona since it's also from the USA, too.

    Maybe I'm over-complicating this, but going off of Jordan's comment, if I'm interpreting it right, it's a track never before seen in a GT game.
    The current list of real life tracks that have been featured in a previous installment are:
    Ascari
    Daytona
    Indianapolis
    Laguna Seca
    Pikes Peak
    Silverstone
    Sonoma
    Spa
    Twin Ring Motegi.

    Same reason why the Monaco event didn’t give us Monaco

    They're probably saving most of these tracks for GT7.

    What was the reason?

    The point is there is no rhyme or reason to it! A New York event doesn't necessarily mean a New York track... Monaco is an example of why that is the case. That's not to say it's impossible however...

    Exactly. My point was WHY COULD IT NOT? IF the reason for Monaco was whatever and we DID NOT get a NY track DURING the event, so be it. I'm not crying about it. There is nothing saying it COULD NOT happen.

    We all know PD do what they do. They do the unexpected. That's what we expect from them.

    That should be PD’s motto: Always expect the unexpected

    oooh @Jordan with the track tease!

    Is it COTA? Never driven this track and it's apparently great fun!

    No, I think that's understated.

    I think 50/50 it's either a USA or Japanese track because half the time it seems like the answer is a Japanese track (what's the daily races? whats the next FIA race? if I throw a wet tissue at the track screen what will it hit?).

    Sebring has never featured in Gran Turismo. It is the circuit I want the most as I have never tried it in a game and it looks a decent challenge. I won't get my hopes though.

    Sebring is good if you’re a masochist. Those bumps on Forza 7 are absolute hell on Earth, and god can only imagine the chaos that gran turismo sport’s Realistic Suspension Model can cause when a bunch of DR Ds pile into the final corner

    I think I'm gonna go to this on Saturday. I'm off and it's a quick train ride into the city. Just park my car at the station and buy a round trip ticket for the day. I'll probably be wearing my white Senna cap.

    That did cross my mind! I'd love to try it though. GT would probably have a smooth version as Polyphony like to reduce bumps.

    Great! Hope it attracts the public's attention.

    Wish I could attend, but Iceland is too far away :D

    I am super lost on some of the people who keep thinking its a track from previous games while it was said clearly "New (Real World) Track". Pretty sure if it was a returning one, it would have been specified.

    Only new track given the location I could see making sense is Watkins Glen. Its never been in a previous title, has two configurations and there is the Microscopic chance (Same odds as my world finals hopes) that "Partnership" might be IMSA

    Could be new to the game...
    Everytime before an update people ask if are we getting new cars/tracks.
    That new doesn't specify anything.

    I realise Jordan typed it, but if he got that info from PD, PD like to use "new" as, "For the first time ever, in Gran Turismo Sport!".
