TOYOTA GAZOO Racing (TGR) announces the outline of the GR Supra GT Cup, that is the first global one-make race in the Gran Turismo Sport for PlayStation®*1 14 (PS4®).
From this year, by involving e-motorsports as one of the pillars of TGR motorsports activities, we are actively working to make motorsports and sport cars more accessible and enjoyable across generations and around the world. We hope that many more Gran Turismo drivers will experience the GR Supra*2 and that we can obtain their feedback and evaluation of the GR Supra, to enhance the real Supra in the coming years.
