From May 1 to June 1, Gran Turismo will host the Pre-Season of the "FIA Gran Turismo Championships" 2019 Manufacturer Series. The ranking will be based on an effective points system, with the final score tallied from the best three rounds out of the total 10.

The race schedule for each round and the "Top 16 Superstars" is below.

 ■ Race Schedule
  ・Starting time for each race, every day: 16:00, 18:00, 20:00 UTC (three races in total.)

 ■ "Top 16 Superstars" Schedule
   ・Round 8 (Race Time: 18:00 UTC)
   ・Selection Criteria: Acquired points
   ・Entry Restriction: Up to two players from the same manufacturer in the North America Region.

The standard race will begin 10 minutes after the start of the "Top 16 Superstars" race.

[IMPORTANT]

Please note that from the start of the Manufacturer Series' Pre-Season to the end of Stage 2, it will not be possible to change your manufacturer affiliation contract. The contract signed for the 2019 Exhibition Series will terminate at the beginning of the Pre-Season.

At the end of the Pre-Season, players will be selected for "Star Player" registration and considered for World Tour participation.

Also, as in previous championships, "Victory Bonuses" are planned to be distributed in-game according to the results of each Series or Stage.
