Kamui Kobayashi takes on Gran Turismo Sport

The long-running driving simulator Gran Turismo returns this week, with Gran Turismo Sport, giving gamers the chance to get behind the wheel of a whole range of Toyotas.

Included in the game’s 162 cars are 11 Toyotas, including the current TS050 Hybrid that is competing in this season’s World Endurance Championship.


It’s the same car that smashed the Le Mans 24 Hour lap record back in June with a time of 3:04:791. The driver who set that stunning lap, Kamui Kobayashi, has been helping developers Polyphony Digital to perfect the handling settings of the simulated TS050.


Kobayashi, driving the simulated TS050 on the Nürburgring Grand Prix track in the film above, also had time to film some advice for those preparing to tackle one of the game’s most infamous circuits.


If you’ve got a copy of the game, we’d love to see if you can beat Kamui’s time of 1:40:186 on the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit. Send us a screenshot via Twitter or Facebook.
