Changes are coming to the Suzuka Circuit in the next Gran Turismo 6 update, according to the latest post on Polyphony’s PitStop website.
- New replay angles
- Newly resurfaced West course
- Relocation of crashpads and guardrails to match the 2009 renovation
- Addition of circuit objects “Racing Theater” “Traffic Education Center”
- Revision of the final chicane
The circuit will now also support time-of-day changes, and the guardrail inside the famous Spoon Curve has been removed, making the inside of the corner accessible to drivers.
According to the blog post, local officials at Suzuka were eager to work with Polyphony Digital to bring the circuit up to current specifications. “The people of the Suzuka Circuit themselves listed up the differences of the track, from when we first data captured the track years ago for inclusion in Gran Turismo, and what has been changed now. They were incredibly helpful in our data capture session,” said the Gran Turismo landscape design team.
