Today, we’re thrilled to reveal that after months of testing and fine-tuning, the 2018 FIA-certified Gran Turismo Championships are underway and live for racers worldwide.

Anyone is welcome to participate in the thrilling online season from June-September, concluding with the Regional and World finals in October and November, where the Nations and Manufacturers trophies await GT’s top-ranking players.

Gran Turismo Sport

These final exciting match-ups between Gran Turismo’s best drivers will be hosted in stunning locations around the world and streamed online for everyone to enjoy, just like our first ever Live Event exhibition at the legendary Nürburgring – which you can catch up with right here.


For more details on how you can get involved in the FIA GT Championships, plus info on upcoming Live Events and fixtures, check out our comprehensive guide over at gran-turismo.com.

Star Players

To recognize players leading the championship standings, we’ve introduced a brand-new Star Player system. Only qualifying players* in the top 200 season point rankings (or the top 10 for their country or chosen manufacturer) will be able to register for this prestigious title.

Drivers who’ve registered as Star Players will be given the opportunity to enter the Top 24 Superstar Races where bonus points can be earned. Plus, their in-game Driver Rating will be displayed as “S”, for the entire GT community to see.

The best racer in the world. The support is incredible. It’s truly awesome what Polyphony Digital is doing with the FIA. Gamers can gain racing recognition, hardware, and fame by performing well in Gran Turismo Sport.

What will happen of someone WINS but his country is NOT in the available countries?
Great irony right?
I am 101% sure you will see this comment.
I really pray for a reply.
I’ve been practicing for half a year now, only to find out that Greece is not available in the EMEA countries.
Ok, thanks.
