Gran Turismo Sport March Update is Live with New Cars and More

It looks like a pattern has officially developed for Gran Turismo Sport. Monthly updates are a thing, and they will bring more than just a handful of cars. This one has two and a half handfuls that feature thirteen new rides and a familiar circuit. Joining the March update will be the Tsukuba Circuit. Located in Shimotsuma City in the Ibaraki perfecture, the Tsukuba Circuit is the closes racing facility to Tokyo. The track is small and compact with a back straight. This will be the perfect track to take one of the many Nissan Skyline models or the newly added 1990 Mazda RX-7 model to.

Speaking of the newly added cars, this update brings some legendary automobiles to the forefront. The Ford GT40 Mark I ’66 is possibly the most iconic American Car of all time. It will also join an Eckerts Rod & Custom Mach Forty, which is based on a 1970 Ford Mustang. Other not so classic classics include the 1989 BMW M3 Sport Evolution and another Nissan Skyline, the 1997 GT-R V spec R33. Group that with the 2017 GT-R Nismo and you have all the Nissans. The biggest addition is the famous X2014 Standard and Junior. These are both Group X cars and were made famous in Gran Turismo 6. There are a few other cars too and you can check these out in our gallery below.

Three events have been added to the GT League: Nissan GT-R Cup (Beginner League), Red Bull X-Junior Series (Amateur League) and All-Japan GT Car Championships (Professional League). While all of these are excellent additions, the most important addition may be the VR Time Trial.

Players can now nail lap times in a 3D view/360-degree environment rather than just running a few laps with a random AI opponent on the track. Rather than being something more along the lines of a gimmick, the time trials will be a way to do VR competitively until some sort of versus mode gets added.
