Welcome to the "GR Supra GT Cup" 2020 Series: A One-Make Championship to Find the World's Best Supra Driver
The "GR Supra GT Cup" 2020 Series is back for a second season, and the first races will kick off in April. This exciting competition, which began last year as one of Toyota's e-Motorsports activities, will once again be brought to you by TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, an official partner of the FIA Gran Turismo Championships.
In its maiden season, the GR Supra Cup's popularity surpassed all expectations, as the Toyota GR Supra RZ used in last year's championship was purchased by 800,000 players since its inclusion in Gran Turismo Sport in March 2019, with approximately 30,000 players competing in the event. After gathering feedback from 120,000 users that included top drivers, Toyota used the data to help the development of the real-life production GR Supra.
Like last year, the "GR Supra GT Cup" will start with an online series comprised of seven rounds, beginning on April 26 at the Fuji Speedway. The top ranked players will partake in the final live event in November to determine the series champion.
Tire management strategies will play a key role in determining the winner, and if last season serves as any indication, we are in for another action-packed season. You can expect many of the top drivers from the FIA Gran Turismo Championships to participate, as they did last year; in fact, it was the 2019 Nations Cup Champion Mikail Hizal who grabbed the inaugural Supra GT Cup crown.
Be sure to watch all the drama in the "GR Supra GT Cup" 2020 Series, as the world's best driver go head-to-head in one of the hottest sports cars in the world.
