The FIA Gran Turismo Championships 2020 Series kicks off in Sydney next month

Stream or attend the FIA Gran Turismo Championships to see the world’s best GT Sport drivers compete live

The FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships arrive in Sydney on Saturday, 15th and Sunday, 16th February. The Gran Turismo World Tour Sydney event is the first of the 2020 season and will take place at the Big Top in Luna Park in front of a live audience and the TV cameras that will broadcast the spectacular racing around the world.

Fifty of the world’s fastest Gran Turismo racers will fly in from Europe, the Americas, Asia and New Zealand to join some home-grown talent in two competitions – the Manufacturer Series, that pits 12 teams of three representing different manufacturers against each other, and the Nations Cup, an individual competition with 24 players representing their respective countries.

Australian hopes will ride high with regular front-runner Cody Nikola Latkovski having finished second in both the Nations Cup and Manufacturer Series at the 2019 World Finals in Monaco in November. Latkovski will be joined at the Sydney event by former GT Academy winner Matt Simmons and World Tour-regular Adam Wilk.

The event will be streamed around the world but you can also watch the race live in person at the Big Top in Luna Park Sydney, Australia.

I think that my free time is more valuable than watching other people play a videogame that i can already play.

And yeah, i dont’t watch sports as well.

To be honest, that’s what makes “esports” kind of completely pointless, and probably why it’s gone nowhere in forever.

Most people can’t race a car around a circuit, so they watch other people do it. But playing a game is something almost everyone can do.

Do the right thing. Have a proper Gran Turismo 7 ready by the end of year for launch on PS5. Or even by 2025 please.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
