    Still don't understand why this is called a world tour. So many countries are still not eligible

    The Germany, Austria, Spain, USA, Japan, Monaco, France, Australia Tour isn't quite as catchy.

    With my man Mik being out (Herzlichen Glückwunsch again @TRL LIGHTNING) I´ll bee rooting for Cody this year.

    He has matured a lot over the last year without losing his edge.

    Since when does "World Tour" mean every single country on planet earth anyway?

    8 Countries on 4 continents qualifies.

    I call it what it's called.

    As Sydney makes it eight countries on four continents and in both hemispheres, with drivers from 23 countries on five continents, "World Tour" seems appropriate. And of course we don't yet know what the 2020 plans for the remaining World Tour events are.

    Ummm cause it literally says 'World'? I mean why would you call something world when it clearly doesn't represent the entire world?

    Can I say I'm the fastest gamer in the world, and then be like, I'm the fastest gamer in the world except in so and so countries?

    I agree, but I'm just saying like if someone just sees these 'World Tours' without any knowledge of GT, they're probably going to assume that people from all over the world are eligible to enter. Which isn't the case. Then the obvious next question is, why is it called World tour then?
    Guess I'm just annoyed that I'm not eligible lol

    It's not representing the world, nor claiming to. It's touring the world. Which is what it absolutely, demonstrably is doing - and it definitely doesn't need to visit every single country to refer to itself as such.

    The championship is called the FIA-Certified Gran Turismo Online Championship, which doesn't mention the world in it.

    let it go. You’re being weird.

    the term “world tour” does not imply every country on earth and never has.

    It shouldn't be called the World Tour unless it has a representative from all countries (just under 200) plus all of the disputed territories and unrecognised states

    It most certainly does. But i will drop it now, since it's slightly off topic anyway.

    'the earth, together with all of its countries and peoples.' This is the definition. So if you're going to say you're touring the world, then it means you're touring all of it. Going around the world and touring the world are two completely different terms. I'm going to assume you're referring to the former in which case you are correct.

    That’s the definition of the word “World”. Not the term “world tour”.

    It's getting increasingly difficult to predict how a thread is going to go off topic.

    It does keep things interesting to be fair. At least it's not a wish list thread (yet) :tup:

    Why does MLB use the moniker World Series?

    For the same reason they call the Major League Baseball championship the World Series.

    Kaz tweeted it's the first time in the Southern Hemisphere. So, it must be a big deal.

    Is this event anything beyond an exhibition?

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: PD should really think about doing regional events instead of these World Tour things.

    I would think popularity would grow because you're giving a wider pool of drivers a chance to get to a live event. And it would probably be easier to get people in one region to a venue in that region. As opposed to sending drivers all over the world to one location. It'll never actually happen, but a man can dream.
