Presenting John’s media race in Gran Turismo Sport from the show floor of E3 2017. Sony held a handful of “media races” during E3 on Tuesday, and John was able to take part in one of the sessions in front of the crowd at the Sony booth.
Besides the excitement of racing in front of a crowd, the stakes were raised by the fact that Tom Brooks was doing play-by-play, giving the whole event an even bigger feel.
As you’ll see, the energy can get you pretty worked up.
As for the racing, the format was a qualifying race from Brands Hatch in the GT3 cars – with the order of that race being random – and the main race being held at the Sardegna rally circuit (yes, it’s more rallycross than rally but that’s what they call it).
For the GT3 race, John went with the Acura NSX GT3 because he had some experience with it from the day before, and for the rally, the Mustang rally car of course. Gotta test out that BOP! It seemed to work…
And stick around for after the races were John shares some final thoughts on the handling of GT Sport as we leave E3 2017.
