Gran Turismo Sport welcomes TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, Toyota’s International race brand, as an official partner of the FIA (Fédération internationale de l'automobile) Certified Gran Turismo Championships. In 2019, we will host the "GR Supra GT Cup,” the first global one-make race championship featuring the new high-performance sports car.
The GR Supra RZ, which made its highly anticipated return after 17-year hiatus, will be the featured car in the one-make series that consists of 13 rounds. Qualifying will take place online between April and August 2019, with a final live race taking place at the Tokyo Motor Show in October, where the first inaugural champion will be crowned.
