If you need any more convincing that live racing esports is gaining momentum, here’s something for you: public tickets for Gran Turismo’s opening World Tour event of 2020 — the series’ first major event in Australia — have nearly sold out.
Tickets for the Manufacturers Series on Saturday are completely gone. Tickets for the Nations Cup on Sunday are still available, but supply is limited. This is impressive, considering the “Big Top” venue at Luna Park is one of the largest mid-sized, multi-purpose arenas in Sydney.
If you are in Australia and want to attend, don’t delay: admission is free and you can reserve your tickets here on Eventbrite.
As someone who has been fortunate to attend nearly all of the GT World Tour events, take it from me: if you are a Gran Turismo fan in the Sydney area (or just a racing fan in general), this is not something you want to miss. The atmosphere at World Tour events open to the public is always exciting, and there is nothing like meeting and chatting with other sim-racing enthusiasts in person.
If you are an attending GTPlanet member, leave a note here in our forums and be sure to say hello (I’ll be the guy in the GTPlanet shirt!).
If you can’t make it to the event, of course, not to worry. It will be live-streamed on Gran Turismo’s official YouTube channels on both Saturday and Sunday and we will have full coverage here on GTPlanet throughout.
