Making motorsports more accessible and enjoyable

The Gran Turismo Sport that is the first global one-make race, starts in April 2019. As part of our e-motorsports activities, we also will become an official partner of the FIA-certified Gran Turismo Championships, an online championship for the Gran Turismo real driving simulator series that is hosted in partnership with the FIA (the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile). 
From this year, by involving e-motor sports as one of the pillars of TGR motorsports activities, we are actively working to make motor sports and sports cars more accessible, and enjoyable across generations and around the world. Then, we hope to connect various findings obtained through e-motor sports to ”making ever-better cars” in the future.
