Gran Turismo Sport June Update Adds New Cars and the Sardegna Road Track

By Rebecca Smith,
Gran Turismo Sport's June content update has been released this week. Update 1.40 adds five new cars and the Sardegna - Road Track to the game, as well as a new GT League event and several other improvements.

The five new vehicles range from "American muscle cars to the new Red Bull X-Series model". The most noteworthy of those is this month's featured vehicle, the Gran Turismo Red Bull X2019 Competition, which is currently the fastest racing car on earth. The other four vehicles are the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 ’69 (N300), the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro ‘19 (N400), the Toyota Sports 800 ‘65 (N100), and the Renault Sport Clio V6 24V ‘00 (N200).

Unsurprisingly, the Sardegna - Road Track is a new road track that runs through the Italian holiday resort of Sardegna. Its 5.1km length offers high-speed technical racing along the closed off streets that feature tight corners, narrowing roads, and varying gradients. The A option is the longest of the three tracks, but there are 3.9km B and 2.7km C options too.

In addition to the new cars and track, the update has also added a new GT League endurance race event tied to the Gran Turismo Red Bull X2019 Competition, the X2019 Competition Endurance Series. There are also seven new rounds for exisitng events. The Beginner League gets two new rounds in the Light Weight K Cup, the Amateur League gets two new rounds in the Gr. B Rallycross, the Professional League gets two new rounds in the Group 1 Cup, and the Endurance League gets a new round in the Gr.1 Prototype Endurance Series.

In Scapes, "Low-Angle - Ground Up" has been added into the special featured section, so players can now get screenshots from angles beneath the cars. Meanwhile the Goodwood Motor Circuit has been added to the Circuit Experience. Finally, there are "various other features, improvements and fixes" that have been made in the update, although the details on these are not available.

Patch 1.40 is available now.
