GT5 Update Fixes Top Gear Track, New Seasonal Event

Gran Turismo 5 155 September 22, 2011 by

Following up from the announcement last week, the leader boards for the Mercedes Live Race Seasonal Event have now been reset, and a few minor changes have been made to the Top Gear Test Track via the latest Gran Turismo 5 update.

There is a bit of confusion about what, exactly, to call this latest version of the game. You’ll be prompted to download update “1.13”, though Polyphony Digital’s formal announcement describes it as version “1.12.572”. Regardless, it weighs in at only 1.1MB.

More interesting is the new Seasonal Event, “Supercar Revival”, featuring classic cars with no more than 550PP in the following races:

  • Rome Circuit (5 laps, 419,000 Cr.)
  • Special Stage Route 5 (5 laps, 480,000 Cr.)
  • Suzuka Circuit (5 laps, 519,600 Cr.)
  • Nurburgring Nordschleife (1 lap, 559,500 Cr.)
  • Mt. Aso 109A (7 laps, 500,400 Cr.)

There’s a corresponding update to the game’s Online Car Dealership, along with new time trials at Tokyo R246 and Cote d’Azur, and new drift trials at Special Stage Route 5 and Circuit de la Sarthe 2009. As always, head on over to our GT5 Seasonal Events forum for more analysis and discussion.
