GT TV plans to offer users the latest news from the world of motoring and is due for launch in 2008. In this new deal there will be 40 episodes of Top Gear available for download.

“We at Polyphony are great fans of the world’s best motoring programme, Top Gear, so we’re delighted to be collaborating with BBC Worldwide to deliver Top Gear content via Gran Turismo,” said Kazunori Yamauchi, President, Polyphony Digital, “We’re sure that players will be as thrilled as we are when they get the chance to put their own driving skills to the test on the Top Gear Test Track in GT5, as well as enjoying classic episodes of Top Gear via GT TV.”

Simon Danker, Director, Digital Media, BBC Worldwide commented,“BBC Top Gear is the world’s number one motoring media brand and we’re thrilled to make it accessible to Gran Turismo gamers. We continue to explore different avenues to share our content with an expanding audience, and are delighted to participate with Polyphony Digital in the launch of this exciting new opportunity.”

Each week on Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson tests the latest cars on the Top Gear test track. In conjunction with the episodes these tracks will then be able to be downloaded and played on Gran Turismo 5

Huh ? Top Gear is doing less and less car tests, they're always on the same track, and hasn't Bitttorrent made the re-runs (along with the hacked up BBC America versions) redundant ?

They should make every new car they test available for GT5... that would be cool.

Having the test track is cool, being able to download the episodes I'd be pretty indifferent on since I can do that already and watch them anywhere.

GT5 is one of the few reasons I want a PS3.

Thankfully it's still a few months away, and hopefully I can get one for cheaper.

Nothing on it right now that interests me anyways.

well, jeremy tests them on the test track and then the stig lays down a lap time. I can tell you who the main stig is though, if you're wondering.
