Rumours that the Laguna Seca track could be making its return to Gran Turismo are currently circulating.
A post on Reddit (via GT Planet) seemingly depicts the “Race 2” schedule of the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport World Tour Final (held in Monaco this weekend) which includes the “WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca” track.
See for yourself below.
The photo revealing the Laguna Seca track was supposedly leaked by a Gran Turismo Sport World Tour Final participant. To add more fuel to the fire, the upcoming World Tour Final event schedule also had races marked “TBA” which has previously led to new track reveals.
Whatever the case, we will find out the truth at this weekend’s World Tour Final. For now, it’s best to prepare for the worst but hope for the best.
Laguna Seca made its debut in Gran Turismo 2 back in 1999. The track was built in 1957 and is located in California, USA. Although only 2.238 miles long and consisting of just eleven turns, the track has a whopping 55 metres of elevation change. This is mainly thanks to the infamous downhill “corkscrew” section consisting of turns 8 and 8a.
Spanish for “dry lagoon”, the Laguna Seca track is actually situated on the site of an extinct lake and was built around the dry lake bed, pretty cool huh.
