It looks like Gran Turismo 5 will play host to the famous Twin Ring Motegi track as part of the recent GT Academy competition.
First picked up by Playfront, it seems that a promotion image of the track appeared in amongst the existing GT5 tracks so far used.
Since then, a screen surfaced on SCEA’s press site, confirming the deal. GTPlanet then listed the tracks to be used at each stage of the competition:
Round 1: Autodromo Nazionale Monza
Round 1: High Speed Ring
Round 2: Rome
Round 2: Special Stage Route X
Round 3: Cape Ring
Round 3: Circuito de Madrid
Round 4: Eiger Nordwand Short Track
Round 4: Road Course – Indy
Round 5: Suzuka Circuit
Round 5: Tokyo R246
Round 6: Eiger Nordwand Short Track
Round 6: The Top Gear Test Track
Round 7: London
Round 7: Special Stage Route 5
Round 8: Circuit de la Sarthe 2009
Round 8: Twin Ring Motegi East Short Course
The names and round numbers were established from file names, but it’s hard to imagine there’s any errors in that list.
