Gran Turismo Sport today gets the latest of its regular updates, and it's a bit of a special one.
There's a new track in the form of Autopolis - a slightly leftfield inclusion, perhaps, the fairly modern Japanese track does at least provide a serious challenge in its two available configurations, and it provides the backdrop for two series dear to Gran Turismo's heart.
First there's the Super GTs that are well-represented in Gran Turismo Sport's current line-up, and then there are the Super Formula cars that we now know are coming later this spring. Given how the series has been a proving ground for F1 talent - Pierre Gasly graduated from the series while Red Bull hopeful Dan Tictum is earning his stripes there this season - as well as a showcase for established Japanese names such as Kamui Kobayashi and Kazuki Nakajima, it should be a popular addition.
Gran Turismo Sport has just been treated to another of its regular - and free! - updates, with Fuji Speedway heading the additions to Polyphony Digital's PlayStation 4 exclusive driving game.
Gran Turismo Sport's big July update - which brings Polyphony Digital's PlayStation 4 racer up to version 1.23 - has just dropped, bringing with it new cars, a new track and, for the first time with this particular iteration of Gran Turismo, microtransactions that allow players to buy existing cars within the game.
The headline addition is an all-new fictional track, Circuit de Sainte-Croixe, which comes in three different layouts (or six in total if you count the reverse versions). The ability to add decals to racing suits and helmets has also been added, and when it comes to new cars the star is doubtless the Mercedes AMG W08, which took Lewis Hamilton to last year's F1 title.
A potentially controversial addition is that of microtransactions, though while they're not live in Europe just yet - they hit 2nd August - they've rolled out in other territories. In Japan the prices go from 100 yen up to a peak of 300 yen - which is around £2 - for all cars that are under 2m in-game credits, with the more luxurious cars in Gran Turismo Sport still having to be earned.
The Circuit de la Sarthe, host of the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans race, is coming to Gran Turismo Sport as part of a free update that's dropping tomorrow on PlayStation 4.
Sony has found itself falling foul of the Advertising Standards Authority, with an ad for Gran Turismo Sport that aired on UK television deemed as misleading in regards to the game's reliance on an online connection and subscription to PlayStation Plus.
Version 1.13 of Gran Turismo Sport has just gone live, and it brings with it a bevvy of new cars as well as some online fixes and a selection of new track layouts. Perhaps more importantly, given the online focus of the PlayStation 4 exclusive, it introduces some amendments to how driver conduct is policed in multiplayer races.
Gran Turismo Sport is getting its first new track as part of a free update that's dropping on PlayStation 4 tomorrow.
Gran Turismo Sport is the UK's number one game, with almost three times as many physical launch week sales as racing game rival Forza 7 managed.
Lewis Hamilton, three-times Formula 1 world champion (and in all likelihood a four-times world champion, unless there's a miracle for Sebastien Vettel in the tail-end of this year's campaign), is to play a starring role in Gran Turismo Sport.
Well, this is all mighty exciting - we're just over a week away from Polyphony Digital's debut on PlayStation 4 with Gran Turismo Sport. It only took four years!

Gran Turismo Sport debuted last May, and didn't look too impressive upon its reveal. Great strides have been made since, with a closed beta showing how much progress has been made, and the fresh emphasis placed on online racing could well help give the series a refresh. Will it be enough to see off competition from Project Cars 2 and Forza Motorsport 7, both of which are also releasing later this year? Only time will tell.

Gran Turismo Sport's unveiling, it's fair to say, left much to be desired. Polyphony's long-awaited PlayStation 4 debut was accompanied by an underwhelming build of this stripped-back racer, and it looked far from the delights we've seen in the likes of fellow PS4 exclusive DriveClub.
Gran Turismo Sport, Polyphony Digital's PlayStation 4 debut that arrives this November, will see one of the key features of the series in recent years dropped, with dynamic weather and light conditions no longer playing a part.
