Here’s Our First Look at Catalunya Circuit in Gran Turismo Sport

Gran Turismo Sport 334 October 20, 2018 by

Polyphony Digital’s hinted at it, confirmed it, and now, we’ve seen it in action. Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is coming to GT Sport, and it will be arriving at the end of this month.

Catalunya played host to the first and last races of today’s EMEA Nations Cup Finals. The 2.89-mile circuit should be a familiar one to F1 fans, as well as players of other racing sims. This is the first time the track has appeared in the Gran Turismo franchise however, and it looks like the team has recreated the Spanish circuit incredibly accurately.

The 16 corners will undoubtedly provide a challenge to all GT Sport players. They certainly did for the top drivers of the game, with a hard-fought battle taking place in the hyper-quick Red Bull X2014 today. You can catch the final race, and our first look at gameplay footage, below:

In addition to Catalunya, the contents of the next GT Sport update are slowly coming into view. Last month we saw the Subaru 22B at the Asia-Oceania finals. Today’s N500 race re-introduced the Maserati GranTurismo S, a car that first appeared in the series in GT5.

What other cars could be lurking in the next update? We’d keep an eye out for the next live event…
