October 25, 2007 A collaboration between the BBC and the creators of Gran Turismo will see the Top Gear Test Track featured in the 5th edition of the popular racing game as well as providing downloads of the award-winning motoring program through Gran Turismo TV.

Set to launch worldwide on the PLAYSTATION®Network in 2008, Gran Turismo TV (GT TV) is a dedicated online channel devoted to all things motoring. The new deal will provide a boost for the content with BBC Worldwide making forty episodes of Top Gear available for download.

The agreement between Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., Polyphony Digital, Inc. and the BBC will also see the Top Gear Test Track replicated in Gran Turismo 5 (GT5) on PS3, giving gamers the opportunity to test their skills on the track and maybe even challenge “The Stig’s” best times.

GT5 Prologue will be available in 2008 and will include online capabilities for access to Gran Turismo TV™.
