The future of Gran Turismo with Yamauchi-san, Super GT and World Series drivers | Traxion.GG Podcast S5 E14

We speak to Gran Turismo 7 and series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, plus Super GT, Igor Fraga and more about the future of Gran Turismo plus what makes the World Series so special.

On this episode of the Traxion.GG Podcast, we’re at the World Finals of the Gran Turismo World Series from Monaco. This is the title-deciding esports event for the world’s quickest Gran Turismo drivers. 

The weekend incorporated the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GT Cup Grand Final, the Manufacturers Cup final and the Nations Cup final – the one that effectively determines the overall world champion driver. 

It also included the launch of a brand new Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo car, an opportunity to speak to the game’s producer Kazunori Yamauchi and meet the Gran Turismo community.

We discuss PSVR 2, the Vision Gran Turismo projects, the current state of Gran Turismo 7 online, the drivers’ performances, the FIA relationship and what makes them want to compete in the World Series.

Joining us on this episode are:

  • Kazunori Yamauchi, alongside Translator-san
  • Flavio Manzoni, Ferrari Design Director
  • Steve Alvarez Brown aka Super GT
  • Kylian Drumont, Manufacturers Cup Champion 2022
