One of the UK’s most renowned race tracks is reportedly coming to Gran Turismo Sport at some point.

According to a tweet by the 2018 Gran Turismo Championships racer Jonathan Wong, the West Sussex-located venue can be spotted when searching for replays in the PS4-exclusive racing game – suggesting the track will soon be featured in Gran Turismo Sport.

If the Goodwood Motor Circuit is on the way, it’s unclear when the venue will appear in the game. A July release could be likely, however, as a tie-in with the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed event that Gran Turismo has been sponsoring since 2013.

While the Goodwood Motor Circuit is seemingly set to make its official racing game debut in Gran Turismo Sport in the near future, it isn’t the first time a Goodwood venue has been featured in a Gran Turismo title. In Gran Turismo 6, players could take part in a series of Goodwood Hill Climb events, with the final run allowing users set an unofficial record up the 1.16-mile course in the fictional Red Bull X2014 prototype racing car.

Constructed in 1948 using the perimeter road of the RAF Westhampnett airfield, the Goodwood Motor Circuit was once one of Britain’s premier racing venues; hosting numerous non-championship Formula One races and the renowned Tourist Trophy sports car events until its original closure in 1966. Nowadays, the track is best known for hosting the Goodwood Revival historic motorsports festival and annual Members Meeting race weekends.
