“Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium is one of the most famous international circuits in Europe,” explained Polyphony. “This update adds the “24h layout” in addition to the already existing full track layout. The biggest difference between these two layouts is the location of the pit.
“The pit is ahead of the first corner the whole track, and there is a long pit road. Leaving the pit, the driver will drive along the famous S-curve before rejoining the track from the straight This pit road is narrow and curved, forcing drivers to be wary of crossing the white line in races where penalties are allowed.
Additionally, Polyphony has confirmed that “Gassho-style Houses in Ainokura” and “Cherry Blossoms at Night” locations will be added to the featured section of Scapes – which are hyper-realistic images that can be used in the game’s photo mode.
