An update coming to Gran Turismo 6 will allow players to relive the legacy of Brazilian racer Ayrton Senna, Sony and Polyphony Digital have announced. The content, which includes one of Senna’s first go-karts and the Lotus 97T Senna drove during his second Formula 1 season in 1985, will be available for free on May 27.
The update also includes two Senna Challenges, which test a player’s ability to best Senna’s times on the same courses he drove in ’85. Those that earn bronze or better in a Senna Challenge will earn the Lotus 97T for free, but those that would rather skip the whole “challenge” part can buy the car using in-game currency.
Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of the Gran Turismo series, called Senna a “personal hero” in the associated press release. “I am honored to be able to introduce him to the younger generation of racing fans through Gran Turismo,” he said. Earlier this month, Sony and Polyphony released an update to the Gran Turismo site honoring Senna and the Ayrton Senna Institute.
