Featured vehicle: Gran Turismo Red Bull X2019 Competition

‘The fastest racing car on earth, free from any and all regulation: The fan car project of Red Bull Racing and Gran Turismo, has already produced two ultimate racing machines, the X2010 and X2014. But with the opening of the FIA Gran Turismo Championships, a need arose for a competition vehicle that both the driver and spectators could enjoy. This led to the birth of the X2019 Competition.

The X2019 Competition is based on the X2014 Standard. On the exterior, the front wing and the rear end of the body was altered to reduce downforce, in order to suppress the drastic change in aerodynamics that would occur in close battles with another car. The front and rear wheel covers have also been changed to allow fast tire changes.

In addition, the 2 litre turbo is replaced by a 3 litre naturally aspirated engine, and a more conventional throttle system has been introduced in order to give it a more attractive racing sound.

New track: Sardegna – road track

A new road course has been added featuring the island of Sardegna, one of a number of Italian resorts surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea. Using closed off sections of public roads, this is a high-speed technical street course that features both long full-throttle straights and tight corners.

In particular, the ups and downs of the latter half of the course and the diminishing road width allow for some real high stakes, up to the guard rail racing.

GT League

cant wait to get my hands on the new redbull car :)

I know it’s never been high on the list, but for the next gen, can you move the AI towards the top.

I setup a 5 lap race on goodwood but could never catch the rabbit that started in 1st, so decided I start at the front, 1st lap 6 seconds lead, 2nd lap 8 secs, 3rd lap the second place car was somehow 2 secs behind me! my laps times had impoved on each lap – maybe i didn’t use the boost button!.

Secondly, take a good look at driveclub, this month you’ve added an event for the x2019 but what about the other cars – why is there no race between the Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra TRD, what about the Sports 800 – what event can I use this car for and not drive round at the back with no chance of winning.

I know the updates are free, but theres very little content created – track experience a month later, new tracks added to existing events, why no new events featuring these cars and new track.
