Wave goodbye to GT Sport, ‘Road to GT7’ series its last official event

Wave goodbye to GT Sport, 'Road to GT7' Series its last official event

Nearly 10 million players, at the last time of counting, 96 articles on Traxion.GG and a pioneering ranked online racing mode – it’s been a good innings for Gran Turismo Sport, but it’s all about the end.

Not in a negative sense, of course, but because Gran Turismo 7 is just around the corner, launching on 4th March.

To celebrate, say goodbye and remember the good times, a special online championship within GT Sport will be held soon.

Road to GT7 GT Sport series

The ‘Road to GT7’ series will run within the Sport Mode section of the venerable title between the 5th and 26th February – completing just six days before the new game.

This will be the final official tournament using GT Sport, following the likes of the FIA Gran Turismo Manufacturer Series, FIA Gran Turismo Nations Cup and Toyota GAZOO Racing GT Cup. It also confirms, rather obviously, that should any high-level Gran Turismo esports events take place in 2022 and beyond, they will switch from GT Sport to GT7.

There will be four rounds in total, details below, each being held on a Saturday and with five time slots available: 14:00, 15:20, 16:40, 18:00, 19:20 UTC.

Matchmaking will be split into five regions with points from each player – this is open to anyone with GT Sport and PlayStation Plus – counting towards a total score. The best two round results will be taken into consideration.

The car and track combination details are below and there will be in-game ‘Victory Bonuses’ which are to be determined.

With all FIA events complete, for now, and the weekly Daily Race schedule becoming a bit repetitive of late, this sounds like a good excuse for one final flurry within GT Sport. We’ll see you on track.
