Sony engineers are currently on the Isle of Man scouting out the British landmass’ famous Mountain Course for the PlayStation 4’s first iteration of Gran Turismo. The track – which plays host to the Isle of Man TT event every year – provided the inspiration for Polyphony Digital’s motorcycle spin-off Tourist Trophy, hinting that bikes may make an appearance in the next-gen release.

According to Bike Sport News, the platform holder is currently trying to strike a deal with the local tourist board in order to include the 37 mile route in the impending release. Should the circuit make its way into the game, it would be the Japanese developer’s biggest undertaking yet, with the Nürburgring one spot behind. Series overlord Kazunori Yamauchi admitted recently that the next iteration in its uber-popular racing series is in production now.
