Life Imitates Art

A new track for Gran Turismo 4, the addition of Tokyo Route 246 was an instant hit for many racing fans. However, only recently did I discover that Route 246 is a real road!

Even at a bird's eye view, it's just vicious. The last turn before the straight is even trickier than turn 11 at Laguna Seca and if you're neck to neck on the straight, you better be on your A game for that braking point coming up at turn 1.

What's more, the track comes full circle as we get to show the Stig having a weekend drive in a Caterham around Route 246 in real life! We've featured Remi Schouten's work in the past (Ebisu keeps it real) and we're a fan of his playful, artistic, yet straightforward style. Thanks Remi, keep it up!
