With the release of Gran Turismo 7 rumored to be in the next few months, we’ve compiled a list of all the tracks that have been confirmed as part of the upcoming Gran Turismo game. 

Gran Turismo 7 is one of the most highly-anticipated games for the upcoming PlayStation 5. Racers everywhere have been waiting with bated breath for a confirmed release date, but with no official news yet, the hottest rumor is that it will be a ‘release’ title for the PS5.

In preparation for the hopefully upcoming release, we’ve put together a list of all the tracks that have been confirmed for Gran Turismo 7. These are tracks that have been seen either in gameplay trailers, or quick glimpses in the in-game maps we’ve seen on the official trailers.

Gran Turismo 7 confirmed tracks list

During the trailers for Gran Turismo 7, a number of tracks can be seen. It appears that the tracks will be split into three categories based on their geographical location: Asia/Oceania, The Americas and Europe.

The Globe seen in the trailer also appears to confirm a few real-world locations based upon their geography alone.

Below is a full list of all the confirmed tracks in the upcoming release.

Trial Mountain Circuit

A firm fan-favorite, the return of Trial Mountain to Gran Turismo 7 will be a welcome sight. Long-time fans of the game were disappointed at its omission in GTSport, so even with a few revisions (such as a longer back straight) it will be a sure-fire early favorite circuit.

Willow Springs

Ideal for those that prefer tight, technical courses over all-out power and long straights, Willow Springs has been confirmed as part of Gran Turismo 7. We only catch a quick glimpse of it during the trailer, but it is definitely there.

Goodwood Circuit

The iconic Goodwood circuit will be making an appearance in Gran Turismo 7. While neither this or Brand Hatch are shown in their entirety, based upon the globe shown in the trailer, the geographic location of the two southern England tracks correspond to the real-world locations of these circuits.

This legendary English circuit blends sweeping, fast corners with all-out straightaways to keep drivers ‘on their toes’.

Daytona

Omitted from GT Sport, the return of the legendary Daytona Speedway will make many fans of the Gran Turismo series very happy indeed. With a variety of layouts available, Daytona should prove to be a versatile track for a variety of different race classes.

Full confirmed track list so far:

  • Blue Moon Speedway
  • Daytona
  • Dragons Tail
  • Northern Isle Speedway
  • Trial Mountain Circuit
  • Willow Springs

Gran Turismo 7 Non-confirmed tracks:

  • Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace (Interlagos Circuit)
  • Autodromo Nazionale di Monza
  • Brands Hatch
  • Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya
  • Circuit de la Sarthe
  • Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps
  • Goodwood Motor Circuit

The Rock gets literally stuck in a Porsche during filming disaster

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is certainly not a small man. Thanks to his intensive training routine and dedication to fitness, The Rock is one of the largest, most muscular actors in Hollywood. Unfortunately, that can be a disadvantage, as he discovered the hard way.

Filming for the upcoming blockbuster film Red Notice, Dwayne Johnson ran into a spot of bother while filming a car chase scene.

Part of the scene required ‘The Rock’ to fit into an all-new Porsche Taycan EV. Unfortunately, things didn’t quite go according to plan for the big-name actor, requiring the whole scene to be redesigned.

Dwayne Johnson Red Notice filming disaster

According to DJ’s Instagram post, it isn’t the first time he’s got stuck in a high-performance car. “Guess who’s too big to fit in yet another sports car” is the first line of the post, suggesting he’s no stranger to this unusual situation.

Unfortunately, this time it’s more than simply a case of swapping cars. According to The Rock, him not being able to fit in the Taycan meant the entire filming sequence for the scene in question needed to be changed.

It could also prove to be a costly mistake. In the post, he mentions that the Taycan needed to be shipped “over to the States” suggesting it likely came straight from Porsche in Germany. Not only that, but this process would’ve taken a long time, and in Hollywood, time is money.

Thankfully, it wasn’t a total disaster. While he likened getting stuck in the Porsche to a “brown marshmallow getting shoved into a coin slot” the crew was able to think on their feet and get the shot they needed.

The crew also apparently found the humor in the situation, as after the “uncomfortable silence” while he tried to fit, they all burst into laughter according to Dwayne.

While it is not clear what the scene in the film is about, using a high-tech, all-electric Porsche Taycan is an unusual choice for a ‘star car.’ Clearly, the producers for Red Alert want to consider the environment too, without sacrificing speed or style.
