GT Sport to demo at Goodwood Festival of Speed

1 Mins read

The latest in the legendary Gran Turismo series, GT Sport, will be featured at this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed with gamers able to get an early taste of the latest edition.

The four day festival will play host to the demo of the latest Gran Turismo racer, five months before it is released to the public in November.

Gamers will get to drive the latest in Volkswagen’s fleet around a perfectly rendered Brands Hatch, while drivers will be able to have their own fun in the Tag Heuer Drivers Club with custom-built Playstation gaming pods featuring the more exotic models available in GT Sport.

Lord March, founder of the Festival of Speed, said: “We are incredibly excited to welcome the Gran Turismo game back to Goodwood for the fourth consecutive year and equally delighted that the Festival of Speed has been chosen as a platform to showcase the very exciting new Gran Turismo Sport game.”

“I have always been a big admirer of the Festival of Speed,” commented Kazunori Yamauchi. “We share a common passion for innovation with so many car manufacturers and we felt Goodwood Festival of Speed provides a fitting location for the UK public to enjoy playing Gran Turismo Sport for the first time.”

GT Sport will be one of the first video games to be supported by the FIA, with virtual racers who reach a certain level in-game granted an FIA Gran Turismo Digital Licence – which hold the same value as a real licence by the MSA and other ASNs around the world.

As well as licences, the FIA will provide backing to two championships within GT Sport with the Nations Cup and Manufacturers Fan Cup open for fans to battle it out for the good of their nation and/or chosen manufacturer.

GT Sport is released on 18th November 2016, only on the Playstation 4.
