Gran Turismo 1.11 Update Available Now, Includes New NASCAR Event

August 31, 2011 Written by Paulmichael Contreras

Gran Turismo 5 released late last year, to positive reviews. Although the game has yet to see DLC in any traditional sense, it has seen numerous updates. Version 1.11 has gone live, featuring a new NASCAR seasonal event among other perks.

Available as an automatic update to Gran Turismo 5, patch 1.11 is 62 MB in size. Various glitches and bugs have been fixed and squashed, and no new features are arriving here. However, a new seasonal event in the NASCAR area of the game is attached to this update. Succeed at this event, and various in-game rewards will be yours, including Jeff Gordon’s racing suit and helmet and a gift car coupon which unlocks a car in the “Classic Muscle” category. The event runs until September 12th, so get to it! The online car dealership has also been updated with the following cars, listed below followed by price:
