Special GT5 NASCAR Seasonal Event Coming August 29th

Gran Turismo 5 112 August 23, 2011 by

Polyphony Digital has, curiously, announced a special “NASCAR-themed online racing event” to be held in GT5‘s Seasonal Events next Monday, August 29th at approximately 8:00PM PST. Though specifics remain sparse, they have confirmed a unique prize for the event will be available in the form of Jeff Gordon’s 2010 driving suit and helmet. Kazunori Yamauchi has also commented on the event via Twitter.

This is the first time a GT5 Seasonal Event has been announced in advance, so it will be interesting to see if anything makes it particularly notable other than the unique prize. The starting time of the event also roughly coincides with a period of scheduled maintenance for GT5‘s online services.

Thanks to Blake for the tip!
