MANUFACTURER SERIES
[Breaking News] Manufacturer Fan Cup Finals
FIA Gran Turismo Championships Pre-Season Test
05/19/2016

The finals of the Manufacturer Fan Cup took place on the Nurburgring Nordschleife course using cars from the group 3 category. For this race the players had to form pairs and were required to switch drivers to their teammate on either the 2nd or 3rd lap of the race.

As the race started there was a large crash and the virtual safety car was brought out with a full course caution being put into effect. The speed of all cars was restricted while the caution active and all cars started off again at full acceleration after the caution was lifted. This event unfolding like it did really made the race feel similar to the first lap of the real Nurburgring 24-hour race.
After this initial setback however Yusuke Tomibayashi/Carlos Martinez split away from the pack in their ‘Renault Sport R.S.01 GT3’ to take the win for the Manufacturer Fan Cup and bring glory to their manufacturer.

The remaining podium positions were taken by Yuji Taneichi/JT Lauro in their BMW (Z4 GT3) for 2nd place and Oscar Ruiz/Pedro Martin in their Toyota (FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo Gr.3) for 3rd.
