Located in the wonderful landscape of Styria in Austria, the Red Bull Ring is an intense high-speed circuit that combines tight turns and long flat straights.

Other than these additions, new Gran Turismo League Events are also being offered by the developers. Three challenges are introduced in the latest update. First one is a Beginners League called Beetle & Samba Bus Party, while the Amateur and Professional Leagues are named Group 3 Cup and Nostalgia 1979, respectively.
