The Gran Turismo Awards are back for an eighth year, ready to crown a new performance vehicle with the honor of getting digitally recreated in a future edition of the Gran Turismo franchise. The awards event will be held Wednesday evening, November 3rd at 9:00 pm at The Joint, located in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In addition to the awards ceremony, music acts Thirty Seconds to Mars along with DJ Diplo will play individual sets to help celebrate the evening in style.

The Gran Turismo Awards at SEMA recognizes the best vehicles in five different categories: Best Hot Rod, Best Asian Import, Best European Import, Best Domestic Automobile, and Best Truck/SUV. After the five category winners are judged, one winner from each category is selected on performance and style by leading automotive media. From there, it falls to Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi to select the overall GT Awards “Best in Show” winner. Walking the show floor, Kazunori-san views each of the category winners and selects a vehicle that best represents the Gran Turismo brand; one that will be immortalized as a fully playable part of the Gran Turismo franchise for millions of fans around the world.

  • All we care about is a GT5 release date. The awards might mean something if we knew when we were actually going to be able to buy/play the damn game…

    Speak no more about GT5 unless it’s a freaking release date. No more Red Bull cars, no awards, no nothing until you have a freaking release date!!!!!!!

  • We want a release date, Please i beg of thee.

  • LOL!! Did you mention “prior to launch” in that blog post? BWAHAHAHAAAAA *gasp* HAHAHAAAHAHAAAA yeah, GT5 getting a release date.. mmmhmmmm.. HAHAHAAA good one!!! Whew… ok. Wait, I feel it coming on again HAHAHAHAAAAA!!! Joke Blog Post.. move along!

  • Yea… until this finally comes out, I really don’t want to hear the words Gran Turismo again… That delay was just such a let down… :(

  • A release date would me much appreciated, I want to take some time off work and need to know what days to schedule.

    Can you make some calls/emails and get a date for us?

  • c’mon sony y’all should know better that the people want to know the release date and what not announcing something like this without a release date is a fail, sometimes i think that sony gets joy out of torturing their own consumers from this to cross game chat. To good playstation plus deals, i dunno if i’m rolling with sony next gen smh.

  • Lol an award show. Sony sure does know what consumers want!

  • Wow, how did Alex become manager of PR? :D

  • GT5 won’t see the light of day until 2011 at the earliest. Guaranteed! Keep taking that GT5 demo to car shows and parading around like you actually have a game to release, give hardly any info on the game except in haphazard bits & pieces getting people dreaming of the ultimate driving game and drag them along with hints of a possible future release date you won’t meet. (seriously, before the delay, 3 weeks before launch there was and is no complete car list, no complete track list, no complete feature list. NOTHING!) You aren’t dragging me along on this silly ride anymore. I’m done and over it.

  • Release the game already.

  • release date now!

  • lol@the comments.

    Well anyway, Happy Anniversary Gran Turismo! :D
    I’m not a giant fan or anything, but im definitely getting GT5 day one, and will be playing with my Playseat and racing wheel. >.>

  • ****
    Where is the Pre-Order Option on GameStop.com at for the Collector’s Edition for Gran Turismo 5 ??

    Is it due to the release date change??

    I already pre-ordered it. I just want to know if there no longer accepting Pre-orders for the Collector’s Edition or not throw GameStop?

  • :::OFF Topic:::

    can anyone tell me what kind of sunglasses hes wearing?

  • the dbag kind… lol

    I for one wont be buying gt5. Like 17 said “you aren’t dragging me along on this silly ride anymore” … “I’m done, i’m over it”

  • What is this doing on the PS Blog? I thought this was a site for GAMES. What is this Gran Turismo 5 again? is it a game? IF IT WAS A GAME I’D BE PLAYING IT. Oh, it WILL be a game? really? somehow I’m skeptical…What to do with a Racing wheel for X-mas…hmmm, Need For Speed Hot Pursuit is calling my wallet. I remember Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 back in the PS2 days. I had A LOT of FUN with that game, and it came out of nowhere, really. I didn’t have to wait, and wait and wait long years and promises of perfection. It was just a happy unexpected blessing. I wonder if Santa will come visit twice this year.

  • It’s getting too late for GT5.

  • What are the odds they deliver the award a little later than Wednesday evening, November 3rd at 9:00 pm?

  • @Skater_Ricky…pre-orders for the collector’s edition at Gamestop are all sold out. That’s why it was taken off the website.

  • Moderate my comment already – it’ll be number 10 – all I asked for was a release date – moderate and get over it already…

  • Awards are pointless if there isn’t a game. People are losing interest.

  • I wonder if they typed “in a future edition of the Gran Turismo franchise” with a straight face.

  • Who cares now? This is getting old and not worth news anymore. Lets move on please.

  • Celebrating the 8th annual delay of GT5?

  • If I lived in US, I would go and egg anyone from the PD team

  • Forget Gran Turismo 5!!!! There’s Forza Motorsport III On XBOX 360!!

  • I think they put this up just to piss people off.. Really guys? No one! Really, no one, gives a rats @$$ about some awards. We want the game. This post makes me more mad then the delays! Get to work on the game and stop with the stupid promos!

  • What’s taking Polyphony Digital so long to make GT5? It only takes half the time for Turn 10 to make a better racing sim.
    Forza 4 may be out before GT5.

  • Stop jerking around and 1) release the release date 2) release the damn game before mid december (of this year) !!!!!!!!

  • I really dont like hearing news about GT5 now. I took a week off of work for this game all for nothing.

  • Maybe there’s no such thing as GT5?

  • Its GT5 a racing team now? Or is it a game? I can’t remember?

  • Release Date Please!

  • It’s EVERYTHING BUT a game.

  • Agreed Sony.
    5 years in the making and still getting delayed.
    I swear there better not be one single bug/glitch in that game or else PD didn’t do their job.

  • Did anyone see the word “GAME” being mentioned anywhere in the Blog Post?

  • So GT5=2011?

  • SEMA IS THE REASON GT5 WAS DELAYED

  • I feel bad for Alex, you had to know the comments would be like this.

  • Every comment is about the release date. lol
