About e-motorsports

Gran Turismo Sport for PlayStation®*4 (PS4®) is a game that provides players with an easy way to enjoy the real-world movements of cars and the excitement of motorsports; it is played by approximately seven million users who compete day and night.

Daily Races

Daily Races are online races that take place every day, and that are updated on a regular basis. Beginners can first refine their skills here. Players do not compete for points; however, completing in a race has an effect on a player’s ratings (the “Driver Rating,” which indicates a player’s speed, and the “Sportsmanship Rating,” which indicates the standard of a player’s manners on track) and, by increasing their ratings, players become eligible to compete against high-level drivers.
