GT Academy 276 June 10, 2012 by

The final rounds of competition are now available in the GT Academy 2012 mini-game, including the all-important, final time trial challenge, which takes place at Polyphony Digital’s newly-remodeled Twin Ring Motegi circuit!

As most of you know, Twin Ring Motegi was not included in Gran Turismo 5, and has not been seen in a Gran Turismo title since Gran Turismo PSP was released in 2009. Hints at the presence of the track’s inclusion in the GT Academy 2012 mini-game popped up shortly after the competition went live last month and were closely followed by more high-resolution screenshots.

If you can’t get to your PlayStation, watch a full lap of the East Short Course below:

Here’s a closer look at the new time trial challenges, which are available to all players around the world:
