After officially revealing the next addition to their flagship simulation racing series earlier last month, Sony has taken to their PlayStation Blog
to outline just what the upcoming Gran Turismo 6 demo has to offer for racing fans next week.
Coming to PlayStation 3, the demo is "structured as a GT Academy-style driver training concept" where you will progressively learn how to drive these very expensive cars, and hopefully not scratch them.
The demo will take place in Silverstone, the spiritual home of GT Academy and apparently one of the brand new confirmed areas for Gran Turismo 6. For those lucky enough to live in the European regions, you'll also have a chance to go in the draw to race for real with Nissan, however sadly Australia isn't included in that category.
While we may not be in one of the eligible GT regions, the PlayStation Blog does outline that everyone will have the chance to unlock special bonus content once you have proved your skills and made the grade through the initial rounds.
For those looking for the demo, you'll find it going live next Tuesday, July 2nd, at 6PM AEST and will continue on until 31st August so you'll have plenty of time to race around the tracks breaking in the cars.

The physics [read: driving model] are somewhat improved, but for the most part are relatively characterless from what I've driven thus far (I've not been 'Colin McRae/Richard Burns/Ken Block'-ing it yet, but that'll flesh out its limitations in the near future) but it is improved over the previous installment.
I'm not sure where Polyphony got their idea for the menu rendering a good 10-15 seconds before it's usable from, but whoever came up with it needs to die in a fire.
I'd prefer the bloody screen to stay black until the game is good-to-go instead of sitting there like an r'tard mashing the d-pad trying to move the cursor waiting for the game 'to be ready'.
