Formula GT (Locked)

The Formula GT event, initially appearing as a locked event box with a question mark.


The Formula GT Championship, in the Professional league of Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, is a championship designed to replicate the FIA Formula One World Championship. It consists of a series of races involving the Polyphony001 and Polyphony002 race cars (PAL Version)/F686/M, F687/S, F688/S, F094/H, F094/S and F090/S (NTSC Version).

Unlike the other events in this game, this race will initially appear as locked, with a white question mark icon on a plain red background. Once the S-License is obtained, the event will be unlocked. It is the final and most grueling championship in GT3, with each race taking 30-35 minutes to complete, and driving a distance of ~1,500 kilometres.

TriviaEdit

Several circuits in the championship replicate real-life Formula 1 races, such as:

  • Mid-Field Raceway (replicates the Japanese Grand Prix, held at Suzuka, but with almost half the number of laps (the Mid-Field GP is 30 laps long, while the real-life Japanese GP is 53 laps long))
  • Grand Valley Speedway (replicates European Grands Prix that were held at the Nürburgring Grand Prix Circuit, as both tracks are tight, technical and require high concentration)
  • Apricot Hill Raceway (replicates past French Grands Prix that were held at Dijon-Prenois circuit, which has a similar layout to Apricot Hill)
  • Cote d'Azur (exactly replicates the Monaco Grand Prix, as both the real-life Monaco GP and the Cote d'Azur GP are 78 laps long)

Some other locations replicate real-life IndyCar races, such as:

  • Seattle Circuit, Rome Circuit, Tokyo R246 (replicates the many street circuits used during an IndyCar championship)
  • Super Speedway (replicates previous IndyCar races held at the Twin Ring Motegi Speedway)
  • Test Course (replicates the Indianapolis 500, but much longer (almost 2.5x the length) and higher banking like a NASCAR oval)
  • Laguna Seca (replicates previous IndyCar races held at the Laguna Seca Raceway)
