I'll save some of my actual speculation about GT6 for later but an announcement at Silverstone this close to GTA, when last years winners are sidelined, makes me think new real life opportunities. Does PD have the clout to start a new RL series of thier own, with Nissan of course?

It has been known for quite some time that PD had scanned Silverstone. But I will be gobsmacked if they release it as DLC. With GT6 only a few months off (holidays 2013?), what would PD have to gain?

 

The box art track was Bahrain (as shown on another forum from the original McClaren promo shots)... You aren't ever going to see palm trees growing on the Northants highlands!

 

I expect this announcement will be details about GT Academy, and maybe some more solid info about GT6.

 

Prove me wrong, PD... release Silverstone early! Give us the National and the 80's-90's layout as well as the current GP layout, I've got $10 sitting ready in the PSN account! I'd be happy to pay it even six months or so before it will be included for free in the GT6 track selection... double dip me!


If I had to bet money on spectulation, I'd bet on Destinkeys' speculation that Silverstone will be the same as Twin Ring was last year with GT Academy.  It is that time of year for another GT Academy and they do show a person racing a GT Academy type car in the video.

 

My speculation is the announcement of this years GT Academy with the final round being on Silverstone race track as a teaser.  Maybe they also unlock the Corvette C7 car so we can finally tune it.  I'm not betting on anything beyond that.

The covered car matches up well with the new Viper, but I'm more interested in what this vehicle is, from 21 seconds in the video.

I'm going to guess some new GT-R concept car.  It's got dual tail lights where the reverse lights are in the center just like the regular gt-r's.

 

I've been searching the internet for an hour or more and I can't locate pictures of what that car might be.

as for the shrouded car, yea it's hard to tell whether it's a vette or viper, since both cars have similar profiles... long hood, and female curves... ooohhh

 

as for the car shown in that screenshot, I agree that it definitely looks Japanese, so either Nissan or Lexus, given the super car look to it.  Rounded lights do make it weigh more heavily on the Nissan side.

On the day, I will open a public lobby, so that we can do a bit of casual (but clean) racing and get to chat in real-time about the announcements.

Yeah, get the old classic Batmobile to drive around, that would be cool.
