24 New Track Logos Discovered on Gran Turismo 5 Website

  1. 25 New Track Logos Discovered on Gran Turismo 5 Website


    While poking around the Remote Racing section of the official GT5 “My Home” website, GTPlanet user Yonis made an interesting discovery: the site has been loaded with 24 25 logos for tracks which aren’t currently playable in the game.
    The images are publicly available on Polyphony Digital’s web servers if you can decipher their file names), and here’s what he found:

    **Super Speedway**
    Driving Park (20r60r)
    Apricot Hill
    Citta di Aria
    Costa di Amalfi
    Grand Canyon
    Hong Kong
    Ice Arena
    Infineon Raceway
    Driving Park (Kashiwa)
    Las Vegas
    Midfield Raceway
    Twin Ring Motegi
    New York
    George V Paris
    Opera Paris (Tarmac)
    Seattle Circuit
    Seoul Circuit
    Swiss Alps South
    Tahiti Maze
    Valencia Circuit
    El Capitan
    Cathedral Rocks (Dirt)
    Cathedral Rocks (Dirt Mini)
    Cathedral Rocks (Dirt Short)

    These images are accessible under a GT5-specific image directory on the gran-turismo.com website (…/gt5/remote_race/common/courselogo/) and sized appropriately for the GT5 remote racing site. It should also be noted the tracks above have never been seen together in any GT game – Valencia was not in GT4, while Hong Kong, Las Vegas, and George V Paris were absent from GT PSP.

    It is impossible to know exactly what these images are doing on the GT5 web site, though it’s tempting to speculate… El Capitan has already been seen in Gran Turismo 5 via the accidentally-leaked Red Bull “Horse Power” trailer, so we know at least a few of these updated circuits must be floating around Polyphony Digital’s offices.


    Yet another track logo for “Super Speedway” has been discovered on the site, bumping the total number to 25. This logo is particularly interesting as it represents a circuit not seen since Gran Turismo 3. GT4 and GT PSP instead used Twin Ring Motegi’s actual “Super Speedway” and represented the track with Motegi’s logo. Though the overall shape of the original course and the Motegi course are the same, their surrounding backdrops were very different.

    There have also been questions about when, exactly, these image files were uploaded to Polyphony Digital’s servers. This information is revealed in the image’s HTTP response headers, many of which show a date of March 9, 2011 or January 28, 2011. The Remote Racing website was launched with GT5 v1.06 on February 18th.

    I personally don't think this is anything to get excited about. A bunch of files on a web server aren't proof of anything. They could easily be redundant images of tracks that were abandoned to save time, along with the other things that were expected but never made it. Better to just wait until PD officially announce that they're actually making a DLC before bothering to speculate on what might be in it.
  4. Bah-humbug Rosscrooge! More tracks are good tracks!
  5. Bah - don't let the truth get in the way of a good story. Sheesh.

    I didn't say I don't want more tracks... read the post.
  7. Updated with new info on a 25th Logo.

    I agree that it's nothing to get too excited about atm though.
  8. Nothing to get excited about but something to talk about. Possible updates or DLC for the future, they would be more than welcome.
  9. I hope to release soon
  10. Hopefully an imminent release :). Infineon and Seattle would be two interesting circuits to recreate from gt4.
