GT Sport FIA Championship Pre-Season Starts November 4

EsportsGran Turismo Sport 35 October 16, 2017 by

Players serious about esports will want to start practicing: the FIA Gran Turismo Sport championship will begin pre-season races next month.

Kazunori Yamauchi himself revealed the November 4 start date yesterday in Modena. Yamauchi-san is in the land of Ferrari as part of the GT Sport launch event. Not only did the series creator confirm the testing phase, but he also stated the first full season of the FIA championship will begin in April 2018.

The FIA GT Sport championship will feature two main cups: Nations and Manufacturer Fan. The former is straight-forward, while the latter will let players decide which of the 30-odd marques in the game they’ll represent.

We don’t yet know the details of how exactly the season will play out. What we do know is that FIA Championship races will take place on dedicated servers. Also, those that make it all the way to the end will attend the annual FIA awards event. There, they’ll receive the newly-minted GT FIA trophy, alongside professional race car drivers.

There’s plenty more info to come, so stay tuned. GTPlanet founder Jordan Greer is on the ground in Modena, so we’ll be reporting more from the launch event as it happens. In the mean time, you’ll probably want to keep an eye on the GTPlanet Instagram. And Twitter, too…
