The Test Course is an extremely large oval circuit that appears in all Gran Turismo games up to and including Gran Turismo 4. In Gran Turismo 5 and Gran Turismo 6 it is replaced by the Special Stage Route X. The course is extremely long, with 2 long straights and 2 extremely wide turns. Many players use this course to find out the top speed and acceleration of their cars.

Sector 1

You start off near the pit lanes and a couple of stands. As soon as the race begins, you'll want to get to top speed as fast as possible. The 400m mark ends the first sector.

Sector 2

Keep going full throttle until you reach the 1000m mark.

Sector 3

After passing the 1000m mark, should you reach the first turn, keep holding the gas and don't let go, mainly because the turn is very wide. The tunnel entrance concludes this section.

Sector 4

Continue holding the gas until the entrance to the second and last corner.

Sector 5

Continue going full throttle on the second and last turn and the start/finish line.
