    Inexplicably not using Tsukuba, considering it’s in Ibaraki prefecture

    Great that there is a 6-17 age bracket, since there are talented drivers waiting in the wings, literally. No reason why they can't compete in game but up till now with GT Academy and the FIA championships it has all been 18+.
     
    Novalee and ProjectF like this.

    I understand the FIA competitions being+18,but a Junior competition would be really cool but i don't know if GTS fanbase is big enough in the teenager demographic.

    Iracing is able to support a junior esports contest so if pd cannot then it says alot .

    No it doesn't. It says absolutely nothing

    iRacing doesn't have to go through Sony

    I am talking about the player base . Which was what was talked about above my post.

    Reading what is written helps to not look fanboyish .

    And i stand by my opinion.

    If iracing can support a junior esports compation with way less users than gts then it says something.

    Gts was also marketed as 7 to 77. So there is that also .


    More junior compations is a good thing also . Becauae at the end of the day it is what will bring more attention to racing esports in general as the trend for most the racing games is to have some form of esports . From f1 to nascar and everything in between is they way forward


    i hope the junior people have a fun time and take more interest

    GTS literally got into e-sports a year ago. If anything, they're developping pretty fast in that area.
