In 2018, a new form of motorsport was born where players from around the world competed using skills developed on Gran Turismo. Called the Gran Turismo Championship, the series enters its fifth year with a new name to celebrate the release of Gran Turismo 7. Allow us to introduce the Gran Turismo World Series (GTWS).
Like before, this championship is open to players around the world in the "Sport" mode of Gran Turismo 7. Players compete under official series regulations, allowing them to test their skills against each other in a competitive and fair setting. Players who show great speed and high levels of sportsmanship are invited to compete in World Series events where players vie to advance to the World Finals, which is the season finale where the world champion is crowned.
The Gran Turismo World Series consists of two different championships categories: the Nations Cup where players compete for their country or territory, and the Manufacturers Cup where they represent an automobile manufacturer of their choice.
