The 'Gran Turismo World Series'

In 2018, a new form of motorsport was born where players from around the world would compete using the skills developed in Gran Turismo - a global, official Gran Turismo championship. In 2022, the Series entered its fifth year with the ‘Gran Turismo World Series’ (GTWS), a new championship to celebrate the release of Gran Turismo 7.

The Gran Turismo World Series is a championship open to players around the world through the ‘Sport' mode of Gran Turismo 7. Players compete in races under the official Series regulations, testing their skills against each other. Players who show great speed and sportsmanship in these races are then invited to compete in ‘World Series’ live events to determine who will make it to the ‘World Finals' to identify the world’s very best drivers.

The Gran Turismo World Series contains two championships, a Nations Cup where players compete for their country or territory, and a Manufacturers Cup where they represent their favourite automobile manufacturers.
