A special competition is going to be held for Gran Turismo 5 players in Japan, as part of the larger “Red Bull 5G” gaming championship. The GT5 element kicks off with a Seasonal Event in the game on October 2, using a modified version of the Red Bull X2010.
Known as the “X2010 5G”, the new car includes larger aerodynamic wings, and its downforce-generating turbofan is disabled. It is not yet clear if the 5G will be available to players outside of the game’s Seasonal Event or Japan.
Visit the official competition website for more details and registration information.
The finals will be held at WOMB in Shibuya, Tokyo on December 9.
