Tour Gran Turismo 5's Top Gear Test Track

We've known you'll be able to drive the Top Gear Test Track in Gran Turismo 5, but this GT5 video indicates it'll be more like a destruction derby because they're keeping the cross-over part of the track intact. Awesome.

When The Stig tests out a car on the Top Gear test track he's alone. The reason for this is that the track is a figure 8 and crosses itself in the middle. If you race more than one car on it, there's the risk that cars will t-bone as they go in each direction. Rather than work around this with a bridge, the designers decided to leave this feature in as an added complication.

Clearly, this will be the best way to determine how good that damage modeling really is.
