The "FIA Gran Turismo Championships" 2020 Manufacturer Series - Stage 1 Begins April 25
04/23/2020

Stage 1 of the "FIA Gran Turismo Championships" 2020 Series will take place from April 25 to May 30. Ranking will be based on an effective points system, with the final score tallied from the three best rounds out 10 total.

[IMPORTANT]

Players who have already chosen their affiliated manufacturer for the 2020 Series will be given another chance to partner with a preferred manufacturer for Stage 1. Once that manufacturer is selected, you will not be able to change your affiliated manufacturer until the end of Stage 3.

Also, in accordance with the addition of the MAZDA RX-VISION GT3 CONCEPT, scheduled for release on Friday, May 22, players will be given yet another opportunity to change their affiliated manufacturer. However, please note that in this case, you will lose all your effective points when doing so.
