INFORMATION
Challenge an F1 Driver with the 'Red Bull Beat The Pro' Online Event in Gran Turismo Sport!
13/10/2020

On 11 October, Red Bull announced the 'Red Bull Beat The Pro' online event in Gran Turismo Sport. Players will be able to challenge FIA Formula One World Championship drivers Max Verstappen and Alex Albon from the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing team, and special guest star Red Bull Junior driver Yuki Tsunoda from the FIA Formula 2 Championship!

This event has been created in response to the decision of cancelling this year's F1 Japan GP, an event that had been hosted since 1987 without interruptions, and to provide an opportunity for Japanese motorsport and racing fans around the world to enjoy racing under the banner #RaceTogether.

GT Sport players will be able to participate in the event from Wednesday, 14 October to Sunday, 1 November, and try to beat these professional drivers' best times!
