Gran Turismo 6 adds Goodwood Hill Climb to course list

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Driving enthusiasts will be able to take Gran Turismo 6's fleet of painstakingly simulated cars for a spin through the Goodwood Hill Climb, the latest course confirmed for the PlayStation 3 racing sim.

The course, described as a centerpiece of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England by the official Gran Turismo web site, has served as a venue for drivers of both historic and modern day cars during the past 20 years.

"I love the incredible range of cars on display — from the priceless, rare and exotic, to the latest family hatchback and full on racing cars," said Polyphony Digital president and Gran Turismo creator, Kazunori Yamauchi. "I love the challenge of the Hill Climb and the rally stage. Goodwood represents every type of motoring and motor sport which very much mirrors what we aim to achieve with Gran Turismo and so it is very special that we have forged this partnership."

A special demo of Gran Turismo 6 — featuring the Hill Climb — will be available at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, which runs July 11 to 14. Yamauchi himself will also be in attendance, driving a number of cars up the hill at Goodwood.

More details about the course, as well as new images of Gran Turismo 6's recreation of the Goodwood Hill Climb, are available at the official Gran Turismo website.

Gran Turismo 6 will be released for PlayStation 3 later this year.
