GT Sport Introduces Sardegna Racetrack, 5 New Cars

Polyphony Digital has announced that its next content update for Gran Turismo Sport will arrive on Thursday, June 27th. This first Summer Update for the PS4-exclusive racing simulator introduces five new cars to collect, race and customize, as well as brand-new track to drive them all on – Sardegna Road Course.

From American muscle cars to the new Red Bull X-Series model, discover the five new automobiles coming to Gran Turismo Sport in the June 2019 Update:

  • Chevrolet Camaro Z28 '69 (N300)
  • Toyota Tundra TRD Pro '19 (N400)
  • Toyota Sports 800 '65 (N100)
  • Renault Sport Clio V6 24V '00 (N200)
  • Gran Turismo Red Bull X2019 Competition (Gr.X)

Meanwhile, the Sardegna Road Course features three unique layouts and will see drivers battling it out on an exotic island located in an Italian resort on the Mediterranean Sea. Using closed-off sections of public roads, this high-speed technical street course is characterized by long, fast straights and tight corners. In particular, the elevation changes through the latter half of the course and the narrow roadway make for what the developer calls “a very harrowing drive.”

New events have also been added to the GT League campaign mode, headlined by the X2019 Competition Endurance Series – an endurance race for the competition-tuned Red Bull X2019 Competition. Other new additions to GT League include:

  • Beginner League – Two new rounds to the “Light Weight K Cup.”
  • Amateur League – Two new rounds to the “Gr. B Rallycross.”
  • Professional League – Two new rounds to the “Group 1 Cup.”
  • Endurance League – One new round to the “Gr.1 Prototype Endurance Series.”

Polyphony Digital has also added a new “Low-Angle ‒ Ground Up” special featured section into the Scapes photography mode, as well as the Goodwood Motor Circuit into the Circuit Experience. The historic British racing circuit arrived into Gran Turismo Sport last month for free with the May 2019 Update.

Lookout for more features, content and improvements in the continued evolution of Gran Turismo Sport, which we’ll continue to cover here on FullThrottle Media. With the addition of racing in the rain, as well as new cars and tracks all due to arrive in the future, there’s plenty for racing fans to look forward to in Polyphony Digital’s racing simulator.

Gran Turismo Sport has been available on PlayStation 4 since October 2017, with new vehicles, features and tracks added on a near monthly basis since then.
