'GT Sport' (PS4) Championships Start Today

by Rainier on June 18, 2018 @ 8:05 a.m. PDT

GT Sport forges a new standard for the racing genre and empowers gamers to develop their virtual careers on the track with advanced online competition.

With multiple class divisions, gamers of all skill levels will compete for a chance to become legends in the world’s first and only online championships certified by the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile).

Welcome to the future of motorsports.

After months of testing and fine-tuning, the 2018 FIA-certified Gran Turismo Championships are underway and live for racers worldwide.

Anyone is welcome to participate in the thrilling online season from June-September, concluding with the Regional and World finals in October and November, where the Nations and Manufacturers trophies await GT’s top-ranking players.

These final exciting match-ups between Gran Turismo’s best drivers will be hosted in stunning locations around the world and streamed online for everyone to enjoy, just like our first ever Live Event exhibition at the legendary Nürburgring – which you can catch up with right here.

For more details on how you can get involved in the FIA GT Championships, plus info on upcoming Live Events and fixtures, check out our comprehensive guide over at the official website.

Star Players

To recognize players leading the championship standings, we’ve introduced a brand-new Star Player system. Only qualifying players* in the top 200 season point rankings (or the top 10 for their country or chosen manufacturer) will be able to register for this prestigious title.

Drivers who’ve registered as Star Players will be given the opportunity to enter the Top 24 Superstar Races where bonus points can be earned. Plus, their in-game Driver Rating will be displayed as “S”, for the entire GT community to see.

The GT Sport App

As the perfect way to keep track of your favorite drivers on their road to the World Finals of the FIA GT Championships, don’t forget to download the free Gran Turismo Sport Companion app to your Android or iOS device. Just log in with your PSN ID and you can join millions of players sharing photos of race highlights, liveries, stats and stunning decals.

As always, stay tuned to PlayStation.Blog for the first word on more upcoming GT content. And until next time, drivers, we’ll see you on that championship starting grid.
