The FIA Gran Turismo Championships, established in 2018, is a new motorsport event presented by Gran Turismo and the FIA (Fédération internationale de l'automobile).
Competitors from around the globe test their driving skills through the "Sport" mode of Gran Turismo Sport, and the best drivers will be given the opportunities to participate in world class events such as the World Tours and World Finals. The competitors who are crowned champions of the World Finals will go on to participate in the FIA Prize-Giving Gala ceremony at the end of the year, and be awarded alongside other real world motorsport champions of the same season.
The FIA Gran Turismo Championships consist of two championships: the Nations Cup, which is contested between countries and territories, and the Manufacturer Series, which is fought between automobile manufacturers.
The number of Regions in the championships will be increased from last year, from 3 to 5. With the new regional divisions of Europe/Middle East/Africa, North America, Central & South America, Asia, and Oceania, competitors can race against others closer to their home.
These special events limited to "Star Players" will be changed to "Top 16 Superstars". With stricter matchmatching, you can expect to see races with even greater skills on display and many hard-fought battles on the track!
The World Tours and World Finals will be broadcast live around the world. The number and content of broadcast events will be further enriched, allowing you to better enjoy the battles between the best of the best from the comfort of your home.
