A demo version of Gran Turismo 6 has just been launched and allows players to drive at the Silverstone circuit, but when the final version arrives at the end of the year players will also be able to select one other famous British driving course: the hill climb on the grounds of Goodwood House.

Yes, Polyphony Digital, the makers of the Gran Turismo line of racing sims, has announced that Goodwood’s famous 1.16-mile hill climb will feature on the latest installment.

The announcement was made just prior to the start of the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and is currently underway in the U.K.  

Visitors to the event will be able to test the demo version of GT6 and the virtual version of the hill climb. The demo also includes a range of stunningly recreated cars including historic models from Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Alfa Romeo.

The final version of GT6, designed for the Sony PlayStation 3, will hit store shelves at the end of the year, prior to the start of the holiday season.
