Gran Turismo 6 to feature the Goodwood Hill Climb
The Hill Climb has always been the star event of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed. It happens on the colossal Goodwood Estate in West Sussex. Now, the Goodwood Hill Climb course will feature in the sixth generation of the real driving simulator, Gran Turismo 6.
The Goodwood website describes the course as, "this challenging white-knuckled 1.16 mile course starts as a tree-lined run through the southern corner of the Goodwood Estate which then turns to sweep past the front of Goodwood House before climbing a steep and narrow Estate road bordered by flint walls and dense woodland groves towards Goodwood's equine racecourse on top of the magnificent South Downs."
This course, owned by Lord March, was recreated by Kazunori Yamauchi and the Gran Turismo team. "Goodwood represents every type of motoring and motorsport which very much mirrors what we aim to achieve with Gran Turismo and so it is very special that we have forged this partnership," said Yamauchi.
The GT6 demo which included the Hill Climb was revealed at the festival this past weekend. Enthusiasts could also undertake a virtually-simulated Hill Climb in 'race pods'. "I feel proud and honoured that the Festival of Speed has been chosen to showcase Gran Turismo 6 globally, as I cannot think of a more fitting gaming partner for this celebration of motor sport and car culture," said Lord March.
