According to Bike Sport News Magazine, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s staff are currently scouting the legendary Isle of Man TT track for a possible inclusion in Gran Turismo 7.

Officially known as the Snaefell Mountain Course, the 61 kilometer track is home of the legendary Isle of Man Tourist Trophy motor bike race. The track layout consists of over 200 corners, the start/finish area is located in the town of Douglas, the capital of the Isle of Man.

While the inclusion of the popular bike track would surely generate a lot of attention for the PR-driven franchise, it strictly speaking isn’t a very realistic fit for Gran Turismo considering that the Snaefell Mountain Course is exclusively used for bike races, not car events.

Being more than 60 kilometers in length, the track would be the longest circuit ever to be included in a commercial video game, being almost three-times as long as the iconic Nürburgring Nordschleife and only slightly shorter than the Targa Florio that is available as a community-made track for various simulations.

Speaking of community-made tracks, the Isle of Man TT Circuit is also being worked on for Grand Prix Legends as you can see here.
