If there’s one redeeming factor that has made this long arduous wait for Gran Turismo 5 a little more bearable, it’s that the game’s developers are continuously adding new features to the game.

The latest feature added to GT5’s supposed across-the-board racing experience is the inclusion of three different track configurations for the Nurburgring Nordschleife. That’s the Green Hell in three different lay-outs - the classic Nordschleife circuit, the 24 Hours of Nurbugring layout, and the Grand Prix course - giving us more than enough configurations to test our wares on one of the world’s most famous - and hardest - racing circuits. Sounds tasty.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I’m pretty sure he’s comfortable with the R35 regardless of whatever track he’s on. He came within a second or so of the times the engineers recorded on Nissan’s track. Up until that point he had not actually driven the car. That’s impressive.

193 on a four-lane stretch of the Autobahn. That’s just insane. All it needs is a grandma stuck between two trucks pulling into the passing lane, and the guy is history.

Nurburgring is really the longest track in the world, and most new car company test their machine in here.
