TOYOTA GAZOO Racing announces the outline of TGR GT Cup 2024, an e-Motorsports competition gathering real motorsports partners beyond the boundaries of manufacturers

2024.04.10 (Wednesday)

TOYOTA GAZOO Racing (TGR) has announced details on the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GT CUP (TGR GT Cup) 2024, an online race in “Gran Turismo 7” for PlayStation®5*1 (PS5®) and PlayStation®4*1 (PS4®).

This season, the final qualifying round will bring together vehicles from Subaru Corporation (SUBARU), Nissan Motor Corporation, Honda Racing Corporation, and Mazda Motor Corporation, partners in the Super Taikyu Waigaya Club*2 from the Super Taikyu series, thus promoting real motorsports and e-Motorsports at the same time. Furthermore, Toyota and Lexus brand vehicles will also be used in addition to the existing GR lineup.

The qualifying round will start with the Virtual GR86/BRZ Cup (round partner: SUBARU). Round 2 will feature a race with HEVs, one of the diverse options in the multi-pathway approach. The Prius, the world's first mass-produced HEV and a driving force behind their popularization, will make its first appearance in this competition. Round 7 will bring together a variety of vehicles beyond the boundaries of manufacturers, including TGR’s LEXUS RC F GT3, which is making its first appearance in the LMGT3 class of the FIA World Endurance Championship. Look forward to a unique and exciting qualifying round that can only be experienced at the TGR GT Cup.

In addition, all users who enter the event will receive a GR010 HYBRID with the 2024 matte black color scheme. Please enjoy experiencing this continuously evolving vehicle at the TGR GT Cup as TGR strives to make ever-better motorsports-bred cars.

Continuing from last year, the structure of the competition will use a league system according to the skill level of the drivers in order to make it easy for everyone, even beginners, to participate. The top-level GT1 League will be followed by two leagues: GT2 and GT3. Please check the times listed in the in-game news in Gran Turismo 7 as race times differ depending on the league.

TGR plans to continue an active engagement in e-Motorsports activities so that motorsports can be enjoyed closer than ever before beyond the boundaries of countries and generations.

The outline of the competition for participants aged 17 or younger in Japan will be announced at a later date.
