GTPlanet report that locals have spied Polyphony Digital engineers at both Silverstone and Stowe circuit. Silverstone (and Stowe, a small track contained entirely within Silverstone) has hosted GT Academy Race Camp since 2008 so if anything it’s surprising it’s taken so long for the circuit(s) to be included in Gran Turismo.
In other Gran Turismo news Update 2.08 (227mb) and three new cars as detailed earlier on RSC are now available.
The three new cars on offer are:
Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy ’12 ($.99)
Subaru BRZ S ’12 ($.99)
Honda weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11 ($.99)
A free downloadable update coming next week will add several new enhancements to GT5, as well as correcting some reported issues. A few examples of the update 2.08 include:
- Now possible to select “Disable collisions” in the [Event Settings] of online races.
- ID’s are now shown above cars when watching online races.
- Response of the clutch pedal when using the steering wheel controllers “G25 Racing Wheel”, “G27 Racing Wheel”, “T500RS” and “TH8RS” has been adjusted.
- Rate of tire wear in endurance races has been slowed (excluding formula cars).
- Amount of air resistance change when altering aerodynamic wing settings has been increased.
- Autopilot has been adjusted to prevent colliding with the wall when exiting the pit lane on the Tsukuba circuit.
- Adjusted the changes in control characteristic when altering vehicle height from standard height. (Vehicle height can be changed by adjusting ride height, either by installing a suspension kit or adjusting a full customizable suspension kit.)
