We’re still not over the fact that Sony has decided to once again delay the release of Gran Turismo 5, but there’s nothing we can really do about it.

Given that rather unfortunate turn of events, this video may seem like a cruel way to make us even more impatient for the game’s release, but really, outside of praying for some divine intervention, we’re going to have to take this latest delay to the chin, move on, and wait for the holiday season.

So to make our wait more worthwhile – or painful, depending on who you ask – we’ll show you a teaser video of a new feature in the Gran Turismo franchise: How to customize your own race track.

We stayed away from using the word ‘build’ because, technically, you won’t be building a track straight out of your imagination. Instead, you’ll get a chance to customize a certain track and use whatever alternative routes it may have, configure it to your own liking, and choose other variables like weather and the time of race.

It may not be as fun as, say, building your own personal race track, but with the freedom to choose the layout of an existing track, it’s about as close as it can get to making your own.

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

Yes, extremely cool! Customizing your own race track would be the coolest feature
I’ve ever known! I think this game is far better than Need for Speed Hot pursuit!
