The 'Gran Turismo World Series' 2023 Nations Cup got underway on the 13th of May.

In Round 1, which took place at Spa-Francorchamps, the unstoppable CalenJRoach made an instant impression. Their huge score of 441 points seemed to bode well for the rounds that were to follow.

Round 3 was a high-speed race that took place on the Deep Forest Raceway. CalenJRoach emerged victorious, with a score of 414 points.

CalenJRoach continued their rich vein of form in Round 4, which took place on Autodrome Lago Maggiore - Full Course, scoring another 426 points to add to their total.

The U.S.'s Dstinct_Darkrai won Round 5, moving up the leaderboard in the process.

In Round 6, CalenJRoach secured a decisive victory, setting the tone for the latter stages of the series and securing their place at the top of the leaderboard.

Round 7, the final round of the Online Series, was won by the U.S.'s AMS_Windfire1010. Unfortunately, however, they were unable to add to their points total.

All seven rounds in the Online Series had been sprint races, and the event was won by CalenJRoach, who absolutely dominated throughout. In fact, they were the only driver in the North America region who managed to score over 400 points in all their scoring rounds. They seem destined for great things!
