The World Finals 2023 event will host a number of exciting activities:
The final of the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GT Cup always proves to be an exciting start to the World Finals weekend. This year’s online competition took place on Gran Turismo 7 over seven rounds. Now the world’s top 24 racers will gather in Barcelona for two Semi-finals and a 12-car Final. While the competitive field features many established Gran Turismo World Series racers, the TGR GT Cup always introduces some new talent into the fray. One thing that is certain is that there will be a new champion in 2023 since the 2022 winner, Brazilian Igor Fraga, will not participate this year.
With five Spanish drivers in the mix, there will be plenty for the home crowd to cheer for. The popular Coque López will be keen to make a winning start to the biggest weekend on the Gran Turismo calendar, but he’ll face stiff competition in this ultra-competitive series.
The Manufacturers Cup showcases a variety of stunning cars featured in Gran Turismo. A team competition, the top 12 carmakers from the Online Series, including official partners Toyota, Genesis, and Mazda, are represented by three drivers each. Reigning World Champion, Team Subaru, is currently in 2nd place, right behind Team Porsche after the World Series Showdown this past August in Amsterdam. It will be keen to seek revenge, while Team Porsche will be buoyed by the return of its ace, Chilean Angel Inostroza, who was forced to miss the Amsterdam event due to health issues. Team Lamborghini put in a highly impressive and entertaining run at the Showdown event to take the final podium spot, but it will be under pressure from 2022 podium finishers Team Toyota and Team AMG as they aim for the championship.
In the Nations Cup, the 12 top-ranked drivers from the Nations Cup Online Series 2023 will lead teams of three from their respective countries or territories. Team Spain is on a roll and will surely be the favorites to win on home soil in front of a partisan crowd. Coque López took the Nations Cup title for Spain in 2022, when the Nations Cup was an individual competition. Teamed with Jose Serrano and Pol Urra at the Amsterdam Showdown event in August, the trio were unstoppable, scoring an impressive victory in the season's first live event.
Team France, Team Brazil, Team Japan, Team Chile, and Team Italy all have what it takes to steal the title away from the Spaniards. But with the crowd on the Spanish team's side, their work is definitely cut out for them.
It has been 10 years since the innovative Vision Gran Turismo (VGT) project began. Embraced by the automotive industry, the VGT program features more than 30 VGT cars, which have been designed and released into the Gran Turismo game, in many cases giving us a glimpse into the future of the automotive industry.
As a celebration of Vision Gran Turismo, the story the various projects will be highlighted in a special public display at the World Finals venue, including full-scale models of a number of VGT cars.
Celebrating all things Gran Turismo, an interactive zone at the World Finals will allow visitors to show off their own Gran Turismo 7 skills as well as experience the game as never before with PlayStation®VR2.
The GT Café will also have snacks and drinks for sale and will be accessible to all ticket holders.
