Famous Pikes Peak Rally Course Headed To GT5?
Might one of the most popular and recognizable Rally circuits return to Gran Turismo?
Pikes Peak hasn't been in a GT installment since GT2 and it certainly isn't in the recently released GT5. And yet, according to an official post at the Red Bull Blog, Rally racer Rhys Millen talks about the best way to tackle the legendary course in Gran Turismo 5. ...what? This could be a huge error or it could be an unofficial unveiling and you know, we might be leaning towards the latter: as noted by members in the GTPlanet forums, replies to the editorial asking for clarification were quickly deleted. Now, the Red Bull Blog also published an exclusive GT5 video last year, which unveiled the bad-ass X2010, the Lexus LF-A, and the El Capitan track. That track didn't make it into the game, either, so maybe an update including both El Capitan and Pikes Peak is in the works. GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi has spoken at length about continued support for GT5 so perhaps we're getting a glimpse of future updates... Cross your fingers!
We'll have to wait until Yamauchi and/or Sony speaks up on the matter but for now, they're remaining mute on the subject.
