Portugal Gets Its Own GT Sport Release Event

Gran Turismo Sport 6 September 27, 2017 by

Although hard to believe, GT Sport is nearly upon us. Release is due next month and as such the marketing for the game is expected to ramp up to 11 in the coming weeks. In line with this, an exclusive GT Sport event has been revealed for Portugal.

The announcement comes via a press release distributed by the country’s PlayStation branch. Taking place on October 2 at the Estoril Circuit, Portuguese racing drivers will take centre stage at the event. Veterans Pedro Couceiro, Pedro Lamy, Pedro Chaves and WEC competitor Filipe Albuquerque will show off their GT skills. Lucky attendees at the event will also be taken for a drive of the circuit by one of the drivers.

It’s currently unclear how the guest list will be compiled but we expect this to be an invitation-only affair. That being said, two lucky PlayStation Plus owners will get the chance to secure an invite. PlayStation Portugal will run a promotion on its Facebook page before the event, so keep your eyes peeled.

It’s worth stressing that this is not the official launch party for GT Sport. This event is specifically targeted at the Portuguese demographic, hence the location and selection of drivers attending. The official launch party hasn’t been confirmed yet but given the shindig thrown to celebrate GT6, we’re hopeful Sony will throw something similar for GT Sport.
