Gran Turismo Sport – March’s Second Free Content Update Adds Japanese Super Formula and More

One cannot have enough free content, right? Polyphony Digital thought so too and threw in another free content update – the second one this month – adding Japanese Super Formula cars and more!

Experience the Creme de la Creme of Japanese Single-seater Racing

In case you haven’t heard of the Super Formula series before, it’s Japan’s top single-seater racing series, and as opposed to F1, no hybrid engines are involved. For reference:

Polyphony has included two of the 2019-spec Super Formula models, Honda’s and Toyota’s. Furthermore, three classic cars also made the cut, making the list of new cars read as follows:

  • Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta passo corto CN.2521 ’61 (N300)
  • Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary ’88 (N500)
  • Lancia Stratos ’73 (N200)
  • Dallara SF19 Super Formula / Honda ’19 (Gr.X)
  • Dallara SF19 Super Formula / Toyota ’19 (Gr.X)

To provide an excuse for taking out the Super Formula (and of course other) cars, corresponding events have been added to the GT League.

■ Super Formula Championships (Amateur League)
A one-make race event with the Dallara SF19 from the Super Formula category, one of the top tiers in Japanese racing.

■ Beginner League
2 new rounds added to the ‘FF Challenge’.
2 new rounds added to the ‘MINI Challenge’.

■ Amateur League
2 new rounds added to the ‘Nostalgic Car Festival’.

■ Professional League

2 new rounds added to the ‘La Festa Cavallino’.
2 new rounds added to the ‘Lamborghini Cup’.

■ Endurance League

1 new round added to the ‘Gr.1 Prototype Endurance Series’.

And finally, “Cherry Blossoms – Heralds of Spring” has been added to Scapes, the Super Formula series received a section in the “Museum” and Autopolis, which you might remember from the beginning of the month, got a Circuit Experience of its own.
