The 24-Hour Gran Turismo Race

Toyota's stand at this year's Australian International Motor Show in Sydney will be playing host to a 24-hour race of Gran Turismo 5, beginning at 3pm next Tuesday, October 19, and running until 3pm the following day.

Sadly, while the race will be taking place on GT5's rendition of Germany's famous Nürburgring Nordschleife, that's about where the toughness ends, as only two teams will be competing in the race, and each team will consist of 24 members.

So, yeah, each driver will only be racing for an hour. Pussies!

Still, it'll be quite something to see a single GT5 race go down for such a protracted amount of time, so if you're at the show (I went a few years back and it's great) you may as well check it out.

And when it's done? Gran Turismo 5 will be one whole day closer to release.
