Sony's Senior Product Marketing Manager Stephanie Yoshimoto has posted a video today on the PlayStation Blog showcasing the new 'Heading Into The Final Stretch' Gran Turismo PSP TV ad.

To quote: I'm back with more exciting news about Gran Turismo for PSP, which is launching this Thursday, October 1.

Back on September 17th, I revealed a teaser video. Some of you were quick to figure out that the Corvette ZR1 was set to race Tanner Foust playing Gran Turismo on the PSP riding shotgun.

And I'm excited to announce that our TV ad campaign for Gran Turismo kicks off today, which centers around the Corvette ZR1 vs. PSP racing against each other on Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA.

Look for this ad on your favorite TV programming starting today. You still can pre-order Gran Turismo to get one of the exclusive car colors, or get the free in-game add-on car if you buy via PlayStation Network before October 15.

And be sure to check out our newly re-designed Gran Turismo Web site that launched last week where you can find the latest news, trailers, and content. Watch out for more Gran Turismo news here in the coming days and weeks.
