Deep Forest Raceway is one of the available tracks in the Gran Turismo Series. It first appeared in the original Gran Turismo, and features in every main game since, with the exception of Gran Turismo Sport. It returns in Gran Turismo 7, and has been redesigned.

Overview[]

Deep Forest Raceway's back straight.

Deep Forest Raceway is an original track that debuted with the release of Gran Turismo. It is set in a thickly wooded forest in Switzerland, with the back straight on a cliff edge. Like many Original circuits, Deep Forest Raceway incorporates several tunnels. Due to the high speed nature of this track, sports cars, such as grand tourers or supercars focused on raw power, are best suited for this course. Featuring undulating corners, tight banked corners, and long sweeping turns, it is a medium-high speed course featured in several events in every game it appears in. It is a favorite among Gran Turismo fans, not just for its beautiful scenery, but for its deceptive difficulty to drive quickly.

In Gran Turismo 7, the track was given an extreme redesign, with more barriers being added around the race track within the forested road. The most significant change is the addition of a much longer straight from the tunnel section, leading into a sharp, downhill hairpin turn.

Easter Eggs[]

One of the goats seen at turn 10.

  • At turn 10 in Gran Turismo 7, a herd of goats (presumably Saanen goats) can be found on a rock pile behind the outside wall. More goats can be seen on the left side of the riverbed before the first tunnel, and three more can be seen on the left side in between the two tunnels on the backstretch. (Note: The goats can only be seen on Time Trials and Drift Trials)

Trivia[]

  • Deep Forest Raceway is Kazunori Yamauchi's personal favorite GT track.
  • All B license tests held on this track are set on the main straight through to the first uphill section after turn 1 (A wide hairpin turn).
  • In Gran Turismo 1, license tests held on this track feature a morning skybox as opposed to a sunset one; the morning skybox is also used in High Speed Ring, derived from the one used in that track in the Test Drive demo disc.
  • In Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, Deep Forest Raceway II (Deep Forest in reverse) is raced at sunset, resembling the Gran Turismo 2 and Gran Turismo 1 version of Deep forest, as opposed to the new broad daylight version.
  • Although the track was omitted in Gran Turismo Sport, it was revealed that the track was being given a complete redesign, along with Grand Valley and Trial Mountain. The new version of the track was later pushed back to Gran Turismo 7.
    • An Easter Egg that revealed Deep Forest Raceway was shown in "The Starting Line" trailer, likely indicating the track's upcoming return in Gran Turismo 7. This Easter Egg did not reveal the redesigned layout, however.
