From PSM3 UK:
Codemasters are readying GRID (known as Race Driver: GRID in Europe) for summer '08 release - but the next iteration of the TOCA series has already steered into controversy. Hardcore fans are upset at the series' new street racing elements, but - don't worry - the realistic handling that TOCA is synonymous with remains.
The trackside gatherings we've seen so far in GT5 have been anemic compared to GRID's packed environments. We've yet to see if they'll be animated, but the sheer number of folk makes for an atmospheric setting.
