Hidden Gran Turismo 5 Track Logos Raise Questions

April 17, 2011Written by Heath Hindman

Gran Turismo 5 for PS3 has been on the market and delighting racing fans for some time now, but just recently a discovery was made of some 25 track logos… that aren’t in the game… yet.

Casually checking out the official Gran Turismo website looking for track logos, a user noticed something interesting. After cracking the code behind the intentionally obscured names of the images, he found what it seems like he wasn’t supposed to find, namely these 25 track logos:

Those are are a little small, but their names are:

Super Speedway
Driving Park (20r60r)
Apricot Hill
Citta di Aria
Costa di Amalfi
Grand Canyon
Hong Kong
Ice Arena
Infineon Raceway
Driving Park (Kashiwa)
Las Vegas
Midfield Raceway
Twin Ring Motegi
New York
George V Paris
Opera Paris (Tarmac)
Seattle Circuit
Seoul Circuit
Swiss Alps South
Tahiti Maze
Valencia Circuit
El Capitan
Cathedral Rocks (Dirt)
Cathedral Rocks (Dirt Mini)
Cathedral Rocks (Dirt Short)

What these mean exactly cannot yet be said. Are they for future DLC? Parts of Gran Turismo 6? Could they simply be leftovers of unused, unfinished ideas that didn’t make it into the game and never will? Lord knows I’ve uploaded my fair share of redundant and/or accidental stuff onto webspace, so the developers could have easily done the same thing here. Humans make mistakes.

Whatever this does or doesn’t mean, we’ll be waiting to make a report if something comes of it.
