To quote: If you saw our Web site
this morning, then you already know about the news
If you're a true racing fan, you know that Nürburgring
is a world-renowned racing complex in Nürburg, Germany.
It's known for being extremely challenging, a grueling testing ground for even the most seasoned race drivers and the most highly tuned performance cars.
It's home of various world-famous races including the Nürburgring 24 Hours race
, and used as a testing ground for bleeding-edge performance cars by companies like GM, Dodge, Nissan, Lexus, and Ferrari.
In the words of Mr. GT, Kazunori Yamauchi
himself, "For a car enthusiast, the Nürburgring is the equivalent to what places like the "Eiger Nordwand" or "Mount Everest" means to a mountaineer. There is that special allure about it that you just can't explain in words."
Nürburgring is definitely a favorite among GT fans, and I'm excited to share with you that Gran Turismo 5 will feature its three courses: the Grand Prix course, the Nordschleife, and the Nürburgring 24 Hours course. As you can see from these screenshots, these courses have been beautifully recreated. Check out the other five brand new screenshots here
And if you happen to be in Germany this weekend for the Nürburgring 24 Hours endurance race, you'll be able to check them out on a brand new GT5 demo we have on display there to commemorate this world-famous race event.
We're getting close to E3
