Gran Turismo 7 gets version 1.13 update with three cars and a new track layout

Gran Turismo 7 will receive an update on April 25, 2022.

Below is a list of the content included in the 1.13 update:

1. Three new cars including the 2021 Super GT Championship winner will be added.

Subaru BRZ GT300 2021

2nd Spa-Francorchamps 24h layout will be added.

Total length: 7,004 m Elevation difference: 104 m Number of corners: 21 Longest straight: 751.84 m

Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium is one of the most famous international circuits in Europe. This update brings the 24-hour layout in addition to the existing Enforcement layout. The biggest difference between the two layouts is the location of the pit infrastructure. The pits are at full track before the first turn, and there’s a long drive to the entrance. On exiting the pits, the driver passes the side of the S-curve before entering the main track on the Kemmel Straight. The path to the pits is narrow and winding, requiring riders to watch out for the white line during races where penalties apply.

3. The locations “Gassho-style houses in Ainokura” and “Cherry Blossoms at Night” will be added to the Scapes section.

We appreciate your support and hope you continue to enjoy Gran Turismo 7.
