Gran Turismo Sport is set to get a new mode on Thursday, November 28 which will introduce lap time challenges which see you go up against the 6-time F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton.
The single-player paid DLC also includes replays and video tutorials by Hamilton to help you squeeze every last drop out of your driving.
Those that manage to clear the events will earn several “special cars” and an unlock for the in-game credits limit. The DLC will be available this Thursday on the PlayStation Store, so far no pricing details have been announced.

Replays and Ghosts of Lewis
In all of these challenges, it will be possible to watch replays and display Lewis’ ghost car. You can check driving data such as braking points and throttle operations whenever and as many times as you like. And even if his ghost car leaves you behind, you can set the game to reset the Ghost position back near the player’s location at every sector, and even set an offset time (in seconds) with the Ghost to drive these Time Trials as though you were racing against Lewis in person!
Some tracks come with a video tutorial where Lewis himself gives advice on how to tackle them. Learn a World Champion’s techniques!
Lewis will comment on your performance with voice messages. Even if you are a beginner, it will give you motivation to keep trying!
‘Friend Rankings’ and the ‘Top 10 Stars’ rankings will be available for each of the 10 challenges. You can compete not only against Lewis Hamilton, but also against players from all over the world!
Saved replays of your challenges can be shared online. It’s also possible to watch replays shared by other users.
Setting lap times with Bronze or better results will award you in-game Credits. Clearing all challenges will also award you further bonus Credits!
Unlocking the Credit Limit Cap
Good news for players who are at the in-game Credits limit: achieving Gold or better results in all challenges will upgrade this limit from the original 20 million to 100 million!
Cars will be awarded as special rewards for each challenge achievement level. Users who succeed in clearing even harder conditions will receive a special prize with a design supervised by Lewis Hamilton’s very own ‘Project 44’ team!
