2. The Fuji International Speedway, one of Japan's fastest tracks, makes its debut.
・Fuji International Speedway
Total Length, 2.84 miles; Elevation Change, 131ft; Number of corners, 16; Longest Straight, 0.9 miles
Arguably one of the most picturesque tracks in the world, the Fuji International Speedway is located close to Japan's most famous natural landmark, Mt. Fuji. Opened in 1961, Fuji quickly earned a reputation for being one of the fastest and most dangerous tracks in the world, home to many legendary battles.
The first half of the track is very fast, with a front straight that stretches 1.5km followed by a series of mid- to high-speed corners. The second half runs uphill and is more technical in nature. Because the characteristics of the track varies from the first half to the second, car setup is very important. Most races are run in the F configuration, but there is also a GT shortcut layout, which is included in the game.
3. The following three events will be added to GT League:
■ The Passion of Dr. Wankel (Beginner League)
This special event features popular cars powered by rotary engines, also known as the Wankel, named after its creator.
■ Real Circuit Tours (Amateur League)
This race race series features non-racecars with 394HP or less on existing real world circuits.
■ Group 1 Cup (Professional League)
The Group 1 Champion match is a high-speed battle with cars equipped with cutting edge technology and aerodynamics.
Also, new rounds have been added to the following events: Stars & Stripes (Beginner's League), J Sport Meeting (Amateur League), Mercedes AMG Grand Prix (Professional League), and the Gr.3 Endurance Series (Endurance League).
