Goodwood Hill Climb to Feature in Gran Turismo 6

The official UK Gran Turismo website has announced the Goodwood Hill Climb will be featured in Gran Turismo 6.

The 1.86km hill climb takes place at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed, a large celebration of all things automotive at the Earl of March’s British country estate.

This year’s Festival of Speed is happening this weekend, and a new GT6 demo will be on display for the public which will let them drive the new hill-climb circuit, and – as the announcement describes – attempt to beat “Nick Heidfeld’s 1999 41.6s course record set in a Formula 1 car,” which you can see below.

Polyphony Digital has also released a gallery of 27 new screenshots showing off the new course. Notably, this marks a return of point-to-point time trial stages to Gran Turismo games.

Stay tuned for more photos and videos from Goodwood throughout the weekend. Thanks to Gareth for the quick tip!

    Am I the only one who noticed the logos for Bentley and Skoda on the banners hanging in front of that building in that picture?

    Also, Bentley just unveiled their 2014 GT3 car at Goodwood this year.

    Is that just a coincidence? lol

  2. Jared93

    Hopefully this a glinpse into canyon running being acknowledged in the series. This hill climb alone could easily be used for some cat&mouse. Maybe some custom mountain pass layouts to get creative with?

  3. Tyger

    OK a lot of people obviously don’t really know what kind of track this is, so why not check out Youtube? Plenty of videos of it there. It’s a very fast mostly uphill sprint track, it doesn’t have much in the way of tight bends so not so great for drifting, but it does have a lot of brick walls with no arnco, the first time we’ve seen that since Citta di Aria (and to a lesser extent Costa di Amalfi) in GT4 pretty much. Think of a mini stretch of the Isle of Man TT course. It’ll be fun! And is only one of the new tracks, being revealed now to tie in with the Festival of Speed.

  4. HarVee

    Just like the TGTT in GT5, I have a strong feeling this track will be just filler content and won’t get much use outside of online mode.

    1. Nuuj

      I don’t know, I see possible License Test integration with this track maybe, but you’re right overall–past that and Online, I don’t see it being very useful in the main game unless the Circuit itself is in there..

    2. ScotteDawg

      Seasonal Events! As these are updated all the time, I can see that there might be Time Trials to do in PD specified cars. So one week it might be the Toyota 86, the next update might put us in a Ferrari F1, the next in a FF vehicle with 450PP or FR vehicle with 580PP or an LMP car – who knows what they will do?
      But rest assured, this track would not be in the game if PD did not know what they would do with it!
      Personally, I’ve never been one to worry about doing the Time Trials, but if PD implement Goodwood into them, I’ll be in with bells on!

  5. gripmaster345

    I can see people using this for touge competions but pd needs to implement that on this track it’ll be fun

  6. ROFFATI

    mhmm… a nice, but probably a useless feature on GT6. Let´s see what they(PD) make out of it.
    Anyway, cant wait for it.

    1. MeanElf

      It’s not just PD who are in control, it is also up to us to make something of it. There have been a few worthwhile suggestions so far.

    1. HarVee

      This isn’t the first time a hill climb race was featured in GT. It is however the first time since 1999.

  7. Tyger

    What I love about it, and what it will hopefully bring to the game, is that it seems to be a pretty level playing field, in that you see F1 cars, LMPs, rally cars, touring cars etc. all competing very closely for the best time.

  8. BigMoab

    Fantastic news! I love Goodwood and hopefully they will release Goodwood revival! Classic car racing, nothing can beat it.

  9. Tyger

    Why are so many people not commenting on the inclusion of Goodwood, and still bleating on about Pikes Peak, touge and whatever else they happen to want in the game? And there’s still every chance that they will be included also, just yet to be confirmed, so cool your boots and enjoy these reveals. Also it might be relatively short, but the Goodwood hill climb is still an exciting and challenging stage. Just give the “meh it’s alright but I want I want I want” comments a rest, the wishlist threads in the forums are for that. Sense of entitlement much?

    1. MeanElf

      Nice one Tyger – pretty much all news threads get a bunch using it as an excuse for wishlisting

  10. moxlox

    Brilliant news, I like this addition. Just hope gameplay wise they integrate it more than the Top Gear track in GT5 which was a missed opportunity.

    But stoked to have the Goodwood hill climb. Will be a great test track for time trialling new car purchases quickly.

    Roll on more good GT6 news!

  11. sibbystiggy

    Got an idea!
    What if the cars at the dealers were presented on goodwood (after selecting car types or certain makes) instead of the traditional white room with reflections and imaginary background scenes?
    That would make it realistic and interesting

  12. DistortedImage

    Awesome, hopfully this is also a taste of things to come, touge racing prehaps in the windy moutains of japan maybe? I hope so thats definantly something gt5 was lacking. Also I dont know if anyone else noticed that in the gt5 booklet that it noted that you could make a coarse or point to point, the later definatly not being an option so maybe we will have that option too? I guess we will find out soon enough, cant wait

  13. Rosemeyer78

    Great piece of Art, PD! Another piece of automotive history is added to the final game .. Although it’s a track a bit ‘short, you will definitely remarkable!
    To compensate a bit the ‘length, it would take maybe .. the Pikes Peak.. or the old Targa Florio.. ;-)

    1. PepeMickey

      Then get a real camera and go out and photograph real cars, if you play GT to take pictures you are clearly playing the wrong game.

    2. ScotteDawg

      ^ Look here troll boy, taking photos (Photo Mode) is a feature PD added to Gran Turismo so that people who don’t have access to certain cars and locations within the game CAN take photos of them or some of the odd things that happen while on the track!
      People DO NOT play GT to take photos but it is nice to have it included.

      If you come to GTPlanet to harass people and be a troll, you are clearly on the wrong website!

    3. Falango

      Pepe, I forgot you had the luxury of walking out and taking pictures at Goodwood, and then you’re only a short stroll away from Italy as well! Not bad having so many cars at your fingertips to take real pictures of too.

      Go away.

    4. ttfn

      @pepe, if you wanna see a load of cars and take loads of pictures, i got loads, come take some photos, but then, i only play GT5 for now, moron

    5. Flagmo-T

      GT is race game not a photo safari – that’s exactly what is wrong with this game, it misses all from the real worlds environments, like Life and Chaos and debri dirt . this is a driving simulator, that tries to look like the real world – but the real world isn’t sterile like this game is, AI means Artificial intelligence, looking forward to see that implanted when the realize it’s missing.. :P

      I’m sorry guys, but you’re too much in love with an business illusion which is this Car Show .- and a ½ Race game

  14. Streeto

    “Notably, this marks a return of point-to-point time trial stages to Gran Turismo games.”

    Holy mother of…

  15. KYD302

    Excited to see this one but i’d rather see Pikes Peak in all 4 forms from all dirt to small section paved to large section paved an finally the whole paved version. Pikes peak is as close as i’ll get to a real point to point race on GT please PD bring it fast.

    1. forzaturismo

      +1
      a dlc Pikes peak Pack including the track + Peugeot 208 T16″ Seb Loeb” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    1. Amac500

      2J is practically premium. For a standard car onboard cameras and working mirrors are great. I’d rather see the 2D, it needs it a lot.

  16. Blood*Specter

    Wow, GoodWood is part of GT6. No way they don’t include the rest of the layouts. Hey Kaz, can we get some Brands Hatch Watkins Glen, Road America action bro?

    1. ScotteDawg

      Circuit of the Americas, Virginia International Raceway, Calder Park, Adelaide (GP & V8 circuits), Phillip Island, Sandown and Gold Coast!

  17. sayba2th

    Upon thinking about this, now that we know the hillclimb is there they may have Goodwood as a venue on GT6 with Goodwood Circuit included as well. Speculation but Kaz has a good relationship with the event.

    1. Amac500

      Hey, I mean they had been doing GT Academy at Silverstone and that speculation came true with 3 layouts.

    2. sayba2th

      Nice call, I think that could strengthen the possibility. All will be revealed in time, lets go December!!!

  18. MattZR1

    Ok, wow. It has been a long time when GT made me do a double take, but a lit of these new screens look incredibly realistic. Especially a few of the ones with SLS GT3. On top of that, having Goodwood is an awesome little addition that makes me even more excited for the holiday season. Bring on GT6!

  19. 20B_4ME

    Looking at the two screenshots of the crazy Goodwood sculpture that has old racing cars stuck to it, can we assume we will be able to drive these old racing cars in GT6? Wouldn’t PD have to license them to even be allowed to be shown in the game? If they are going pay to show them in the scenery, might as well have them drivable!

    1. ScotteDawg

      As the cars are a part of the sculpture and are not true representations of the actual cars raced at Goodwood, no licence is required for those particular cars that are on the sculpture except the one required to have the Goodwood track and surroundings included in the game!

    2. MeanElf

      Scotte, you forgot… “Terms and conditions apply. Only available in participating countries” ;) Sorry, it sounded so much like a legal disclaimer :)

  20. 20B_4ME

    Does this mean that the McLaren F1 car that Nick Heidfield used to set the record will be in GT6? The more F1 cars the better, but I would really like to see (and drive) one of Ayrton Senna’s F1 cars in GT6!!!

    1. infamousphil

      3 happens to have 4 of his championship whips. I know what you meant by what you said, but it’s not a bad place to go.

  21. JaySamurai

    This is good to see, and it makes sense. For me the GT series isn’t just about racing flat out and winning races like other racing games. Providing they improve the engine sounds it would be a great track to save replays showcasing our favourite cars doing rev’s, burnouts/doughnuts, photo’s etc. I just hope they do not make it become a redundant track like they did with the Top Gear track. Forza took more advantage of Top Gear than GT so i hope PD really make an event and capture the spirit of Goodwood in the game.

    1. infamousphil

      Redundant, meaning PD doesn’t feature the circuit in a special event? That happens with most of events. But you can always go the online route with you and your friends.

    2. JaySamurai

      ^^They could have simply done more with the partnership of Top Gear and integrated more in the way of gampley. With the Goodwood track i hope they bring life to different event modes.

  22. Nuuj

    In order for them to compete with Heidfeld’s time in the Demo, I assume they’ll be giving players a F1 Car to use (since that’s what he used), I wonder if it’ll be one of the new GT6 Cars yet to be unveiled, a Ferrari (from GT5), or a Formula Gran Turismo (“former Standard” or Premium Update)?

    That alone has piqued my interest quite a bit..

  23. LR-MR-Cole

    Wow the stars are aligning guys and it all coming together. And if your bitching about this track then stop playing GT you ARE NOT A PETROL HEAD

  24. AERO_HDT

    Very niiiice! Well done PD! There’s definitely a certain “international” feel creeping into the Gran Turismo series, PD have given a fair bit of exposure to non-Japanese cars, tracks and events. I think it’s getting harder and harder for people to call Kazunori a one-eyed bigot. :)

  25. gtdrift

    Track/environment details looks beautiful – really adds to the atmosphere of #being there# – Heritage elements seem to be captured well too

  26. gtdrift

    Amazing news!! the feeling of speed going through those narraw walled sections will feel awesome, combined with the exhaust / engine noises bouncing off the surrounding walls and small undersections. great potential for touge like point to point races…cant wait!!!

    Goodwood Lexus LFA / Mclaren mp4 vids on youtube are great

  27. sayba2th

    This is fantastic news and is met with great anticipation. However once again this just seems to open up the same ol same old discussions of – while you’re at it PD I want this or you may as well just add this. Yes we all want more and or certain tracks and cars but this is preaching to the choir.

    1. Amac500

      I’m sorry xXMann07, I know your frustrated that PD is busy adding realistic venues steeped in motoring history rather then working on your beloved nitrous, but I think Need for Speed has that :D

    2. xXMann07

      I spend my money on GT5/6. I have every right to express my POV. This is America.
      /\_ _/\ no worries kids its all good.

    3. Tvensky

      dont hurt that american dude.. he must think that Daytona 24 h is fun..

      he has just born in the wrong place to understand us… and why are we happy with this new addition..

    4. xXMann07

      Actually I have been to two 24hr races so far. LeMans in 2009 and Daytona in 2008. Next is the 24hr at the Nurb. in the not do distant future.

    5. mistersafeway

      You said “I spend my money on GT5/6”: why are you going to buy GT6 if it’s so boring to you? To me it seems like you just want to get it to bitch about how bad it is.

    1. kekke2000

      Are you kidding? Goodwood Festival of Speed is like a sanctuary for car lovers. To get this track in the game along with the earlier announced integration with the event itself is very good for the franchise. I can’t wait for the next big news flash.

    2. drag lab 101

      No he’s not kidding.. PePe Le Pew trashes GT anytime he can muster the strength to comment. Doesn’t even matter if its a serious issue… With any chance he has he leaves a stain behind.

    3. PepeMickey

      Goodwood, sanctuary for car lovers? yes, I’ll give you that but that doesn’t bring anything gameplay wise to GT, it’s too short and it has nothing going on for it as a track plus we won’t get most of the cars that made that track legendary so for me it’s just a half assed effort, just like everything in GT.

    4. PepeMickey

      A track? lol, are you serious? man I thought DiRT’s rally stages were short but this is something else..

    5. sayba2th

      For starters lets leave the skunk outta this he is feckin awesome! Now with that out of the way. There are going to be 1200 cars plus in GT6. Are you telling me that you can’t create a Goodwood festival with some of the games iconic cars? Track length is irrelevant – have you seen any of the drivers get out after a run and go that was too short. With all the other tracks coming like Bathurst plus we already have the ring and Sarthe you have distance tracks covered. GT is far from half assed yes it has its short comings but it still trumps pretty much all other driving sims.

    6. PepeMickey

      Because this shows PD wasting time in a “track” like this instead of adding real tracks that people have been asking for ages. Why not Pikes Peak? rallying is supposed to be a big part of GT as a franchise, yet, we still don’t have it. They waste resources on tracks like the Top Gear TT, Stage Route X and now this. What’s next? Kaz’s street as a track?

    7. GTman1996

      Oh im sorry, is it a problem that PD cant cater to your individual needs? If youre going to hate so much on it, god buy forza god damn 5.

    8. sayba2th

      PepeMickey please, to you they are wasting time, a lot of people watch Top Gear and wish to try their hand at being “the stig” people had asked for this. Maybe not you but seriously cuz you need to not be so self absorbed. The full details have not been revealed for tracks on GT6 yet. Who said pikes peak won’t be in the game? There are a number of new locations and tracks so chill til all has been revealed. If Kaz’s street is on Mt Akina then yes!

    9. ScotteDawg

      Until GT7 comes out there will be a new track as DLC every month, so, MintyMouse, you should be catered for to some extent!
      If, for some reason, you’re still not happy with that, go #@&% yourself…

    10. Amac500

      Goodwood is steeped in motoring history for fans of any 4-wheeled motor vehicle that has ever roamed the Earth. If you haven’t notice, online rooms for chilling and car shows and parades and trades are very, very popular online. This venue fills a need for all of them. Plus they can use it for the demos in the car dealer. Not to mention that since they have made an alliance between themselves and the venue we will probably see the circuit added as well. You clearly don’t understand all the uses this venue will serve and if you still don’t see it then Gran Turismo isn’t a title for you.

    11. TokoTurismo

      Guys why are you wasting your time with PepeMickey. He’s the guy who told someone to go get cancer WHICH HE SHOULDN’T HAVE SAID! Seriously he did. Freakin jerk….

  28. Progress823

    Nice, but can we get Isle of Man and Targa Florio please….give us something to keep us occupied for many, many days.

  29. mr_pepps

    Personally I think this is the most exciting news of gt6 yet! I’ve been an regular at this event for 8 years – the hill climb is a brilliant new point-to-point feature!
    Maybe we’ll be treated to Pikes Peak again too but this is dynamite!

    1. Andyc709292

      Agreed for me too. Looking forward to this and no mistake. I live in fantasy land by wanting Prescott Hill Climb too. Taking a Veyron up the Bugatti owned hill climb would be epic. Maybe I’ll write to them!

  30. rjayco

    If they’re going to add this, then they might as well just add Pikes Peak while they’re at it.

  31. yewles1

    Speaking of which, Gran Turismo TV needs to have a segment on this year’s festival so that we can see who or what Kaz runs into this time…

  32. BanditRa101801

    I am happy to see Goodwood represented in Gran Turismo 6. They complement each other very well. Even though the hill climb track is the only layout confirmed thus far, I still hope to see the circuit included, and add depth to the Historic Cup event, which was a little lackluster in Gran Turismo 5. Cheers!

  33. infamousphil

    A return of point to point TTs FINALLY.

    Hopefully, we’ll get more than 2. Eiger is vast and beautiful. It would be nice for a point to point verision there as well.

  34. faburisu

    Gunsai touge & pike peak “13 for me please Kaz as sprint track … will paid the high price for this

    1. mef

      Gunsai Togue would be awesome, or any other tie-ins to Best Motoring. There is not much JDM culture in the game and it is a missed opportunity and a bit surprising given how many JDM fans must be working at PD!

    2. Amac500

      There are far more Japanesse cars in the game and there are more Japanese tracks then any other country, I think their focus should stay on Europe and America.

  35. p3bucky

    This track looks awesome and I can’t wait to drive on it! I just want SSR11 and Seattle now though D: The old Tahiti tracks would be cool too haha. I’m fine with whats been shown as new so far though :)

  36. 05XR8

    Touge anyone? I’m glad to see more of the SLS GT3. Erebus Motorsport GT will be racing their SLS GT3 at Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend!

    1. Tvensky

      ok I will take it as far as we can…

      mercedes-benz patent motorwagen 1886….. :)

      next one will be a horse….

      anyways.. I miss that piece of history in GT.. they have to put it back.. just for a respect for a first real car ever build!!

    2. kekke2000

      Not really the first car ever built. George B. Selden built a car in 1878, 8 years before Benz. But because he was in america, the paperwork and legal process of getting the patent through took 16 years and was granted in 1895. So Benz beat him in the patent race even though it was not the first car.

    3. Tvensky

      I didnt know that (and its true, just checked)… real world is cruel…

      you dont only need to know how to create it .. you also must know how to use it..

      sadly this happens all the time.. there is no real proof that someone creates something, unless there is a witness or a document..

      maybe history counts Mercedes benz as a first car because it released 25 models in that period of time.. and tha George_B._Selden didnt.. anyways.. respect for them, as they created all we see today! we can say, they started GT series :D

  37. sammo85

    I actually asked for this in a forum 6 months ago, this is quality, I live 10 minutes away from goodwood, and drove up the hill circuit 2 years ago. Not at the festival of speed though :-( .

    1. Amac500

      Congratulations on getting your home track added, ya lucky b*****d. Lol, I’m still praying for the new Belle Isle Park!

  38. z71L28

    Would like two see a layout of this track. Keep it up PD, nice work!. More REAL WORLD circuits please.

    1. kekke2000

      I tried to google that aswell, I got a few different track layouts, none was as detailed as I was hoping. Just a line as if it was drawn in paint…

    1. ScotteDawg

      Las Vegas was a good strip I’d like to have back!
      It would be hard to manage in an online room with 16 people, but I’m sure there’s a way it could be done…
      I’m thinking that a competition could be run where, for practice, everyone goes out on to the track but only two at a time and ONLY when all in the room have been on the track twice for tuning can the actual comp. begin!
      Similar with Goodwood, but only one car at a time and only one tuning run!

      If anyone else has an idea on how these races can be run in an online room, write it here…

    2. DYLAN777-is-not

      Heck yea they better have a real drag strip. And who ever said they wanted the las vegas drag strip is crazy because that was a terrible track.

    3. ScotteDawg

      Dylan, Las Vegas was only bad because there was no competing car and there was no “Christmas tree” – other than that, it was, IMO, an OK sort of track!

  39. j8mie

    I’m a bit surprised by this news. Nice to see PD are trying to increase their track list with GT6. The lack of tracks was a real issue for me with GT5.

  40. Foxiol

    It looks beautiful…hope it looks the same in the game…or at least like GT5 looked compared to the GT6 blurry demo.

  41. Boxout

    I don’t see what is to be excited here.
    Sure a new track is awesome, but is a track that you drive in less than a minute… I mean is nothing special here, it just makes the chances of seeing Apricot Hill, Seattle or even Bathrust smaller as in the day 1 release.

    God I hope SSR11 and Seattle make it to the game without being DLC, is not like I wouldn’t buy them, but I really wanna drive em on Day 1.

    1. Amac500

      It’s exciting because Goodwood is steeped with motoring history and tradition for race and street cars alike. There is a circuit, a hill climb course, and it should be what is used to demo cars in the dealer, so it makes the game that much more complete and deeper as a whole.

    2. ScotteDawg

      I like all the tracks you mentioned, particularly Bathurst, but if they don’t make the final cut then DLC it will be!
      IMO, the remodelled tracks from previous GT games should be FREE DLC, whereas the new Real World circuits we’d have as paid DLC!

    3. MeanElf

      Get used to the idea of the classic GT tracks being DLC – only seven new tracks were cited as being with the game on release – the classics aren’t new.

    4. ScotteDawg

      Sorry MeanElf, have to correct you on that one. 7 new LOCATIONS and 19 new LAYOUTS!!

      Now, something I forgot in my last comment was that some of the old tracks MAY make it into the finished product but will not be given the NEW LOCATION or NEW LAYOUT tag!

      We have been told that there will be 71 layouts in GT6! There’s ALREADY 95 in GT5, including Original, World, City and Snow & Dirt circuits AND Time/Weather change where applicable!

      My thought is that Kaz was being elusive about some of the track details so that WE get a surprise from some of the classic tracks being included!

  42. lalaurentide

    Wait, so not only do GT6 has a laughable amount of new tracks, but one of them is a 1.46km stretch of road where you can’t really race against others. It would only be nice to have that road in a world where GT6 doubled the track roster of GT5. Won’t be buying this at 60$, not in a 100 years.

    1. aronh17

      Yet the same people that say they wouldn’t spend $60 on a game, spend over that a month on cigarettes or other non-essentials. The price of games are really cheap when you compare them to other un-needed things in our lives. You can easily spend $60 at a bar in one night.

    2. TokoTurismo

      Your comment is laughable, seriously it is. @aronh17 is totally right and I agree. Just get over yourself, please just do it… -_-

    3. lalaurentide

      @Amac500
      And where does it say anything about a track other than the hill climb? I don’t know about you, but making claims based on assumptions and faith is dumb. I deal with facts.

      @aronh17
      I wouldn’t value electronic entertainment as high as you do. Video game have a very low value as services and even lower as goods.

    4. Amac500

      It doesn’t say anything about the circuit, I’m talking about the venue of Goodwood. If the hill climb is in the game we can only imagine that the circuit make it in at some point as they have formed an alliance with the venue. Goodwood is steeped with motoring history and if you don’t under stand what Goodwood means for fans of street and race cars a like the you probably aren’t somebody who should be playing Gran Turismo anyways.

  43. BaconDrift

    Awesome. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come as I would love to see tracks like Prescott, Gursten Down and Shelsey Walsh in Gran Turismo.

    1. Amac500

      I was going to do that as well and I probably will a bit. However, it’ll be a bit hard for me to evaluate how the car will do on a race course when the road is so narrow. I’m jut not sure about evaluating the cars turn in ability when there aren’t multiple line to use. Still, I think it will be good for a base time trial for a basic evaluation.

    1. Amac500

      Yeah? And I want the new Belle Isle Park course. If you don’t understand the value of Goodwood you have not have a place playing Gran Turismo. It’s history of motoring is unrivaled in the world of both race and street cars in a way that Oulton is not. Plus there is a circuit there they can add, and they can use it for at demos in the dealer. I like Oulton and would enjoy it in the game, but the history and versatility of the Goodwood facility opens alot of doors for PD.

  44. TheEnd35000vr

    I can’t help but think of Pikes Peak now, being the only other hill climb course I can recall ever being in GT.
    Surely its a possibility now….?? If that happened, along with this, my God…

    I don’t know what I’d do.

    1. ml_paladin888

      only if its in its 80’s mixed surface state. an all paved pike’s peak (as it currently is today) is rather “meh”

  45. Nomadpt1

    this is excellent but they could have shown some pictures with the ford gt40 race car premium ;)

    1. jpbonadio

      I must agree with you. The GT40 is in my top 10 standard cars to become premium list.

      Lets hope they left it for a trailer showing the track … in which also would be the Mclaren MP4/4, some classic F1 Lotus, Williams, Benettons, etc.

      Well, a man can dream.

  46. JAHHAJ

    I’m so hyped about this especially as Goodwood is in Chichester, West Sussex, where I was born and raised for some of my life.

  47. jpbonadio

    Amazing. Great job PD. That’s why I love PD.

    This track could be user as a photomode location and even as a exibition for cars, where you could see then racing fast, slow, with the public cheering, like if they where present in the festival. With the perfection that PD put on the replay cameras, this would be epic.

    1. Amac500

      Right with ya! Exactly what you just described should be the demo mode when you buy cars from the dealer

  48. At 1ness

    So happy Goodwood HC is going to be in GT6! :D (i remember wishing for it back in 2009, when i first signed up to GTP)

  49. JustDrivin

    What a lovely track things are looking good for GT6 cant wait but i see we still have the standard spectators going on lol

    1. TokoTurismo

      And cruising too. W00T! But I guess those things are still too short for King also, oh well. ;)

    1. MeanElf

      Very true – I’m surprised that I missed the rumours from last month – really very happy about this as it has the flavour of GT6 being quite different in more ways than purely physics.

  50. HuskyGT

    And it keeps getting better!!! I see myself testing all my cars in this track to see which one is the fastest.

    And we have yet to see the new customizing features, new tuning parts, the new premium cars and much more. Oh man, GT6 will be epic! And not to mention that all of this will be working around these new awesome physics we just tried out in GT Academy.

    1. ImmalovemaGTR

      Yeah!!! I thought to be the only one who is happy like a kid at its birthday party on GT6 (hope this was the correct grammar)

    2. Amac500

      Hey, put me in the same boat with you guys! Finally we’re getting those European GT race cars that are the heart of Gran Turismo symbolizes to me. Not to mention how good the time changes look and they’ll be available on a lot more tracks! I still can’t get over how realistic the terrain is when you stray off course. All we need is a livery maker or some way to customize those GT3 racers and I’m set!

  51. AnPrionsaBeag

    Happy enough but I can’t help but think of Pikes Peak. If that’s in, I’m pre-ordering GT6 this minute!

  52. Fisha695

    Hopefully they include the Circuit & Rally tracks from Goodwood too. Also who else things that the bonus thing unlocked at the end of the GT Academy is going to be taking the DeltaWing up the Hill?

    1. MeanElf

      They might change it but the event has already been done by a few GTP members who turned their PS3 clocks forward to the 29th – it was the GT-R 2013 at Silverstone.

    1. APIOQM

      I’ve been watching this show on YouTube and would absolutely love to see that track in the game!

  53. Amac500

    Awesome, awesome. Goodwood is a great location to include in the franchise with its deep motoring history. They should use Goodwood for the car demos too, like when you’re buying from the dealer. It would be perfect for that and would be one of those little deals that makes the game just that much more deep. I’m really hoping for a livery maker for those GT3 race cars too though, that’s the detail that could provide me the most realistic game experience of all!

    1. gtrx251

      Trees look too realistic, maybe it’s because the small course and the PS3 can do it, or rendered image.

    2. Umbra344

      I’m sure people will find something to moan about. The trees look great, I think. But in exchange for that, people are probably going to make fun of the pedestrians on the side of the track or maybe the clouds don’t look soft enough.

  54. TomBrady

    A couple weeks ago, someone made a thread on the forum saying he knows someone who works at Goodwood, and that he saw PD there. Some guy went the typical pessimistic “proof or it didn’t happen” route. I thought it was stupid. It didn’t seem like the kid was lying. I don’t understand why people need proof instead of just discussing the possibility of goodwood being in GT6.

    Now that it’s confirmed, I think it’s kind of funny that we were right.

    Very excited that it’s a hillclimb too. I’ve been wanting hillclimbs in GT6 for a long time.

    1. Renan_

      Nice, maybe we should espect the Circuit too? We’ll see :), always wanted Goodwood (the hill climb and the circuit) in GT.

  55. sixergixer

    Oh man PD, please tell me you are making those vintage Lotus Formula 1 cars available to drive, too!

    I have a feeling this course will become my newly-acquired-car benchmarker.

    1. Amac500

      It’s a much better benchmark then the Nurburgring, that’s for sure! Better then Le Mans too, track won’t be too long.

  56. Sasek

    Honestly, this track is very short. They could move their work to the more interesting tracks, imo.

    1. Amac500

      Agree with the other 2 guys, it’s steeped with motoring history for both street and race cars. Deffinently a worth while location and I think vintage racing could become a big thing online with the circuit.

    2. Roxa_p

      There’s also a race-track, rally-track, maybe whe get that after. It’s a good extra for the game.. Big surprise and who knows what come’s next, still more then 4 moths to go.

    3. z71L28

      Nothing wrong with short… Like the short one’s better than the long one’s. That’s what she said!. lol :).

  57. SavageEvil

    Question, attempt to beat the record done in an F1 car, and you will be driving what exactly the Audi Hill Climb Quattro? Or do they have an F1 car just for this demo build, if they have a newly added F1 car then AWESOME! Great to see point to point returning to GT, hope you can create your own in the course creator too. Each passing news bit makes me all warm and fuzzy about GT6, better physics, sweeter tire simulation, monster car selection(depending on your tastes or lack there of :D), visually cleaner output…all I need is a solid frame rate that is as close to 60 fps as possible even in the most hectic situations and I’ll be one happy camper. I’m lying, if the frame rate is like GT5’s minus the tearing I’ll play it.

    1. Quigz125

      I agreed with you 100%. The more I read about new features in the game the more I want it. Sounds like a lot more content than GT5 and some good returning features

  58. APIOQM

    If they’re going to go through the effort to model those old F1 cars for the map, I hope they throw them in the game. They probably look no worse than a standard model at least.

  59. Neilson248

    honestly at first glance, I thought those were photos… GT6 is looking ridiculously beautiful

    1. Quigz125

      I agreed with you 100%. The more I read about new features in the game the more I want it. Sounds like a lot more content than GT5 and some good returning features.

    2. Quigz125

      Damn smartphone. That last message was for someone else. But I agree with Neilson too. The game still looks great and I’m sure PD will fix the frame rate if it really bothers people.

  60. gtfanforlife

    I had a funny feeling when i saw that they were adding that Alfa because, Goodwood was the only place I had ever seen one. It was also easy to tell that they were going to because when ever they plan to go to an event there is a reason.

  61. Spongeinside

    I wonder what’ll happen if you reach the end of the track.. Can you turn around and drive back or do you ‘teleport’ back to the start or do you have to go through (time consuming) menu’s to start again or or or… And how will it work in multiplayer?

    1. lilmann73

      Probably the same as the drag strip in GT4: you cross the finish line, then the AI kicks in and stops the car.

  62. mcalva98

    I love the track but I don’t know how there can be only 7 tracks? There has to be more
    -silverstone
    -brands hatch
    -Matterhorn
    – Willow Springs
    -Seattle
    -Apricot Hill
    -Bathurst
    -Goodwood
    I am very confused by this?????????

    1. Joe_Ald

      Perhaps they wanted to keep some surprises or they didn’t want to promise something and not deliver.

    2. HarVee

      Every circuit except brands hatch has been practically confirmed, or at least hinted at appearing.

    3. MrWednesday

      I’d bet on some of those being DLC. I’d further guess that the legacy tracks are more likely to be DLC than the new locations.

  63. carfanatic45

    Hopefully the front entrance will be a photo location. But this is awesome, Iv’e always wanted to go to Goodwood, now I get to drive it!

  64. JacoJa

    Oh, PD… I will love you guys so much if you included those old F1 cars (on the statue) in the games’ car list.

  65. solracarreug

    Looks beautifull was not expecting, and we actually get public in this one, i hope they put public on silverstone too, it looks like a post apocliptyc circuit

    1. legacyMACHINE

      He’s gonna lose control, and I think he likes it.

      Anyway, this is good. But having it online in free run would be terrible.

  66. mavryk_gt

    Yes yes yes! Been a couple of times (and spotted Kaz there too!) was there last year so they’ve modelled the Lotus centre piece which is added bonus!

    Used to create my own hill climb stage on GT4 in Citta di Aria from start finish to the castle church building arch so glad we have a proper hill climb track now! Epic!

  67. witham

    Fantastic I love goodwood so this is great to have it in Gran Turismo 6, Hopefully them lotus’s on the arc will be playable, one can only dream

  68. Griffith500

    Definitely cool.

    Again: track or location? Now the numbers really don’t make sense.

    It bodes well for hosting hill climbs online, too, hopefully with an (even only mildly) improved course creator – or even just against AI with an event editor, should such a thing be included.

  69. Freezer445

    You’ve earned a trophy!
    “Goodwood Master”
    Beat Nick Heidfeld’s record of 41.6 seconds on the Goodwood Hillclimb.
    ——————
    Is anyone up for this trophy?

    1. kolio123

      +1 That is literally the first thing I thought of! If it is not I hope it is really open too, as in the pictures where it shows an opening off the track! This is partially because I cannot stand invisible walls, and it would be cool to drive around over there!
      I would honestly rather see a wall there that is not there in real life than have an invisibles wall.

  70. HMSMotorsport

    Really hope they include the motor circuit too. Doubt it but that would be absolutely brilliant. I could practice before trackdays & sprints!

  71. Conquerer

    This is pretty cool. I was thinking it was fairly likely with Kazunori’s usual attendance at the event, plus the GT booth this year, but great to hear it’s confirmed in the game. Will be quite fun to cruise on.

    I wonder if it counts as a track or “location” though…

    1. Rionmoon

      Yes they did. This is GT5.5 er….GT6 and its about time Bathurst is represented. We’ve waited 15 years

      Still, I like this track. Anyplace new to drive in GT is a good thing

    2. MeanElf

      They’re not announcing everything. Bathurst was scanned about the same time as Silverstone, so I think it’s in there, just not revealed yet. I hope we can see some gameplay from this new event demo.

  72. CJSpencer77

    So so cool, never expected the goodwood hill climb to be features in GT6 or any GT game, but i like the direction they are taking with soe of the tracks they are adding, Silverstone, Willow Springs, Goodwood Hill climb, i personall saw Brands Hatch mentioned on the back of the GT6 placholder in my local “GAME” store, that would be the icing for me.

  73. ZDUPH

    This is AWESOME! :D
    For something that PD seems to attend alot, this is no surprise to see this in the game.
