Today, we’re thrilled to announce that the first ever Gran Turismo World Tour event will be held at next week’s “24 Hours Nürburgring” in Germany.

The team here at Polyphony has invited 30 of Europe’s top GT players to compete in a series of exciting races from 10-13 May in both a Nation’s Cup and a Manufacturer’s Fan Cup.

European Countries will be represented by the following in the GT World Tour event:

  • Belgium: Nick Aerts
  • Finland: Markus Kononen & Kimmo Kaisla
  • France: Fabien Gaillard, Loris Garnier, Anthony Duval & Pierre Lenoir
  • Germany: Michael Kasseckert, Patrick Weking, Kevin Richly & Tarek Buschmann
  • Great Britain: Matthew Thomas, Martin Grady, Tom McPherson & Lewis Bentley (Reserve Driver: Edward Williams)
  • Hungray: Patrik Blazan & Benjamin Bader
  • Italy: Matteo Paolini, Cristian Nicotra & Vincenzo Mangano
  • Luxemburg: Philippe Nicolay
  • The Netherlands: Angelo Schut, Sander Derksen & Joost de Haas
  • Poland: Kamil Karsky
  • Portugal: Bruno De Sousa Ferreira
  • Slovenia: Uros Rasic
  • Spain: Francisco Jimenez, Adrian Mayor & Manuel Rodriguez Rincon

This brand new World Tour format is one we hope you all enjoy, as any Live Events which form part of the upcoming FIA-certified Gran Turismo Championships will adopt a similar set-up. We hope to have more exciting news on that to announce in the coming weeks.

For GT fans who are also attending the 24 Hours Nürburgring, you’ll be able to watch the pros compete at the venue in a specially designed arena, as well as have a go yourself in friendly exhibition races divided into Junior, Adult and Senior classes.

With more thrilling GT World Tour events on the way, now’s the perfect time to join millions of other drivers out on the track.

As always, stay tuned to PlayStation Blog for the first word on upcoming GT content.

Urrgh boring “Esports” arrive once again.

How about all the companies obsessing over this junk spend the time and money on making their games better??

Soooo, did they finally fix the 80% real to 50% ingame pedal position mapping? Last time I checked in Feb they did not. Haven’t touched the game since. It’s impossible for me to adapt, considering all the other sims do it 1:1. I don’t want to be forced to use TC (ABS I was already using in GT6).

Ohhhh….maybe the event is dualshock-only.

Once the tournament is over could you please spend some time adding more vr content to gt sport (especially after selling so many “gt sport vr bundles” which must have left a lot of customers particularly disappointed when they discovered that the bundled vr game was just a tacked on vr experience).
