【Notice】

Please note that it will not be possible to change your manufacturer affiliation (Driver Contract) with a manufacturer from the preseason to the end of the main season in the Manufacturer series (Stage 2).

* Driver contracts established in the 2019 Exhibition series will be terminated upon appearance of the preseason event.

In addition, Star Player Registration certification and the selection for participation to the World Tours will be made based on the results at the end of each stage. The selection for participation in the ‘World Tour 3 in New York’ to be held on August 24 and 25 will be made from the results of the Manufacturer Series Preseason.

Furthermore, we plan to distribute a Victory Commemoration Bonus at the end of the seasons (or stages), in the same manner as in previous championships.
