Hidden Gran Turismo 5 Track Logos Raise Questions

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.
