As one of Playstation's oldest and most popular racing series, GT7 has us all excited.
There's still a lot that's unknown about GT7, including which circuits will be available to race around.
Gran Turismo 7's announcement trailer showcased a few laps of racing around Trial Mountain. Trial Mountain is a fictional GT circuit, one of many original tracks in the series.
According to Sarah, (your guide in the GT World) Trial Mountain has been "renovated recently" so it will be different to what we're used to in previous GT instalments.
ALPINE ROUTE: The trailer treated us to racing action around Trial Mountain
If you look very closely, the Blue Moon Bay Speedway also shows up before Sarah blocks the logo.
We only saw some North American circuits in this reveal, but there will also be tracks in Europe and Japan.
GT Sport's tracks
Presuming that GT7 will maintain the list of circuits from Gran Turismo Sport while adding new circuits, these are what we can expect to see:
CONTINUING THE LEGEND: GT Sport had some stunning venues, GT7 won't change that
- Brands Hatch
- Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya
- Circuit de la Sarthe
- Mount Panorama (Bathurst)
- Red Bull Ring
- Laguna Seca
As well as the following original circuits:
- Lago Maggiore
- Broad Bean
- Circuit de Sainte-Croix
- Dragon Trail
- Kyoto Driving Park
- Special Stage Route X
Additionally, there are multiple variations to some of the above tracks.
We can dig a little deeper into the realms of speculation from the reveal trailer. There are nine red dots on the map of the USA in the video, meaning that we can guess which tracks these are.
CUTTING EDGE: Where else could we be heading in GT7?
Two are obviously Trial Mountain and Daytona, as these are selected in the trailer, while Northern Isle, Willow Springs and Blue Moon Bay make up three more.
Of course, there are original tracks which could be almost anywhere in the US, so we'll have to wait a little longer to know for sure. This also won't be an exhaustive list, there will probably be more than nine US tracks in GT7.
Further to the GT Sport list, it'd be great to have some of the following circuits in GT7:
- Algarve International Circuit
- Circuit Gilles Villenueve
- Circuit of the Americas
Some of the above have been in previous GT titles, so Polyphony know them well. With more processing power avaialable than ever before with the PS5, we'd like to see the biggest and most comprehensive GT ever for GT7.
Of course, you should also be able to design your own circuits, just like in previous GT games, making the list of circuits available effectively endless.
