We've heard rumors that Australia's epic Mount Panorama Circuit (a.k.a. Bathurst) was getting scanned for Gran Turismo 6, and now there's evidence of the scanning crew in action.

This picture, taken by the sister-in-law of a reader on GTPlanet, shows what GT6's track scanning process actually looks like. Another reader recorded this video of one of the crew saying specifically that they were working on Gran Turismo 6.

This is fantastic news for car nuts as Bathurst is one of the world's great tracks, right up there with Monza and Spa. If you want to get a sense of the 3.8-mile circuit with 570 feet of elevation gain, watch this onboard lap of Jenson Button's F1 car tearing up and down The Mountain.
