Gran Turismo 7, we hope, is just around the corner and we can't wait to get playing.

However, there is one part of racing pedigree that we don't want to see lost by the wayside.

That is classic racing, and we're here to tell you why you should love it too!

Keeping history alive

Classic racing, for those who don't already know, is racing using classic cars... Yes, it really is that simple.

CLASSICS INBOUND: We know from the trailer that GT7 isn't shy of classic behemoths!

There isn't an exact definition for what age a car has to be to be classed as a classic, in fact, there's plenty of different opinions.

However, if you're wondering if you finely tuned 1966 Ford GT40 is a classic... Chances are it is!

No challenge too great

Modern racing is so wide and varied, that it's too easy to lose sight of where our passion was built.

CHARACTER: At all levels, classic racers have the same charm!

From the early pioneers who started Formula One as we know it in 1946, to the origins of DTM in 1984, racing has an immense pedigree (and some awesome tracks!)

To lose sight of all of this seems akin to sacrilege to us, so we're making a fight to keep it! Oh, and we just love classic cars as well, I guess that could have something to do with it...

Gran Turismo 7 to the rescue


Gran Turismo 7 is the leading driving game for PlayStation, or at least, we're 99.99% sure it will be.

AESTHETIC: It is also our humble opinion that classics look the best!

Unlike PC players, PlayStation players are unable to download mods of their favourite classics, or even classic tracks.

As such, GT7 plays a pivotal role in letting console owners experience classic racing without the need for a computer.

Gran Turismo has always done a great job of implementing many different ears of racing cars. We're sure Gran Turismo 7 will be no different, we're just making sure!

We've also got some high hopes for GT7's career mode...
