Gran Turismo World Series Montreal Tickets Are Now On Sale

With the Gran Turismo World Series online qualifiers drawing to a close soon, tickets for the first live event of the year, in Montreal on July 6, have gone on sale.

The first of at least two brand-new locations for the GTWS this year (with the location for the final still, officially at least, under wraps), the Montreal event marks the very first time that the series has visited Canada.

Perhaps a little unusually, it’s going to be a one-day event that encompasses both the Nations Cup and Manufacturers Cup. Each championship has a 90-minute slot beginning at 5pm local time, with an hour’s interval between the two; good luck to any driver double-dipping!

The venue for the final itself is the Usine C event space within the city’s redeveloped Village area. In fact the name “Usine” translates directly to “factory”, recalling the building’s former life as a part of a jam factory under the Alphonse Raymond umbrella.

There’s several event spaces within the repurposed facility, which now acts as a center for the arts, with the GTWS likely to use the largest: an auditorium with a large stage area and theater-style seating for almost 500 people.

That should provide plenty of space for the 12 driving rigs, which we’re expecting to use the new Gran Turismo DD Extreme wheel from series partner Fanatec — replacing the Gran Turismo DD Pro wheel used in 2023’s live events — as well as a large audience.

As we’ve seen in previous live events, there’s two types of tickets available. You can purchase a “Gold Ticket” from today, which is priced at C$40 ($29/€27) and gives access to the entire day’s racing along with a special Gran Turismo event t-shirt.

Alternatively there’s General Admission tickets at C$15 ($11/€10) that allow you to watch either the Manufacturers Cup or the Nations Cup — making your selection when you buy them. These will become available from next Thursday, May 30.

You can purchase either type of ticket through the event’s special page on the Gran Turismo website.
