Gran Turismo gets Australian road named in its honor

Streets in Australia and Spain named after driving simulation game and series creator.

Sony Computer Entertainment Australia and The City of Bathurst revealed Gran Turismo Drive, a street named after driving simulation game series Gran Turismo. The road is located at the Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit in Bathurst, Australia.

Earlier this year developer Polyphony Digital Inc announced the inclusion of the Mount Panorama Racing Circuit in Gran Turismo 6. The in-game track will mirror its real-life counterpart, spanning 4 miles (6.213 kilometres). Fans will be able to visit the real-life location in Bathurst and walk the internal road during special events.

Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has also had a street named after him. GTPlanet reports the street was unveiled during the Gran Turismo 6 launch event in Ronda, Spain. Named "Paseo de Kazunori Yamauchi", it runs around the Parador de Ronda hotel.

Gran Turismo 6 will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 worldwide on December 6. Sony currently has no plans to port the game to the PlayStation Vita, although it is considering a version for the PlayStation 4. Earlier today, Sony confirmed the pricing for in-game microtransactions.
