This is it: the final 10 fastest GT Sport drivers in the Americas are about to face off for the regional championship.
30 drivers arrived in Las Vegas earlier this week after qualifying through multiple online seasons. After the usual battery of three Gr.3 block races and two repechage races — in the unexpectedly entertaining F-150 Raptor at Willow Springs — these drivers from Chile, Brazil, Canada, and the USA remain.
Even with the headcount dropping from 30 to 10 today, this is a diverse field.

From real-world race car drivers, multiple GT Academy finalists, and young guns from the most elite sim racing teams in the world, tonight is anybody’s night.
A large portion of the drivers are also part of the GTPlanet community. You can read more about these drivers right here.

Like the Asia-Oceania and EMEA Finals before it, tonight’s championship is a three-race affair.
The drivers will start on the technical Blue Moon Speedway Infield circuit. In a BOP’d N500 field, tire wear will play a crucial role here.
The second race will be a comfortable setup for the drivers. Back in Gr.3 cars, the field will tame the challenging Mount Panorama circuit.
Things speed up for the final race. Worth twice the points, the drivers will strap into the Polyphony-designed Red Bull X2014 for a tour around Brazil’s Interlagos circuit. There’s no new tracks here, like Fuji or Catalunya, but the familiar circuit should provide even faster, closer racing.
That’s the English-language stream just above. As usual, Polyphony is offering live streams in five other languages as well:
Best of luck to all the competitors!
