“Gran Tursimo is a legendary franchise with gamers and car enthusiasts which makes it a perfect fit,” explains the legendary race car driver, Mario Andretti. “Racing has been my lifelong passion and gave me an incredible career. When we first started discussing the ‘GT6 First Love Campaign,’ it brought back memories of some of the most defining moments of my life and I’m so pleased to share them with GT fans. PlayStation gave me the opportunity to remember my ‘first love’ and to revisit what it felt like to be a young man taking that old Hudson around the track. I’m really happy fans are enjoying my story and sharing stories about their own first loves.
