The FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships 2020 Series is gearing up again and drivers will take to their wheels on Saturday, 25th April, when the first of three Stages goes live.
The Gran Turismo™ Championships are certified by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile. Beginning in 2018 the Championships have seen success in the last few years working to shift gears and perceptions of online racing, encouraging supporters, manufacturers, real world racers, media and FIA experts to consider them as a turning point in the future of motorsport.
- Eligible players who wish to join the competition must complete the GT Sport Mode registration form which is available via the ‘Sport Mode’ within the game;
- After selecting to race in either the ‘Nations Cup’ or ‘Manufacturer Series’ Championship, or both, they will need to register for and compete in online races which take place on given dates and times
- Scores are tallied at the end of each Stage by totalling the points earned in their best races from all previous Rounds which will determine their position in the overall ranking.
So, how does the current new season look?
- The FIA Gran Turismo Championships are split into three Stages each consisting of 10 Rounds.
- The Championships are also split into five Regions across the globe: EMEA; Asia; North America; Central & South America; and Oceania.
- During each Stage, the top ranked players will be invited to compete against each other in their own Top 16 Superstars races.
All of the Top 16 Superstars races will be broadcast on the official Gran Turismo YouTube channel with the first broadcast of each of the Regions set to take place as follows:
- EMEA and Asia Regions Sunday, 3 May 2020
- North America and Central & South America Regions 4 May 2020
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, there are currently no live events planned so keep up to date with the tension on the tracks of these Top 16 Superstars races on the live streams!
