Special Stage Route X is an oval test track featured in Gran Turismo 5 (as DLC), Gran Turismo 6, and Gran Turismo Sport, where it was added as part of Update 1.32. The 30 km oval, designed for testing top speeds and acceleration, is similar in nature to the Test Course from previous Gran Turismo games, however, the Test Course runs counter-clockwise, this course runs clockwise. The track is comparable to a much bigger version of Daytona International Speedway oval, which hosts the infamous Daytona 500 and Talledega Superspeedway, the largest track on the NASCAR schedule.
The course itself consists of two ~11 km straights and two ~4 km banked turns, with banking varying from 0 degrees to what appears almost 60 degrees. At the end of the front straight, there is a 3 km hill, mostly used to test uphill acceleration and downhill top speed. There are two 2 km tunnels, one at the beginning of the front straight housing the massive pit area and lap line and one in the middle of the back straight at about the 6 km mark.
There is also an unused part of the track which is most prominently seen just before the hill, where the left hand side of the track (no access) breaks off into a high-speed 270 degree spiral turn, and then heads to the geographical center of the complex. The course apparently reunites at the back straight 5 km mark and separates again at the beginning of the front straight just before the front tunnel and pit area.

- This track is available in arcade mode as well as multiplayer lobbies, but Interestingly enough, this track is not included in the Circuit Experience in Gran Turismo Sport. The reason for this is that it has long straights and only 2 banked corners.
