Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) has released details of the exciting opportunity for gamers to enter the 2024 Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup and become the world’s fastest GR driver. The e-motorsport championship is a global series in which Toyota’s current line-up of GR road vehicles, as well as iconic sporting classics and dedicated racing cars, will compete in an eight-round season.

In addition to including the GR Supra, GR Yaris and GR86, the series will see the new matt black GR010 Hybrid race car become available in round three, as well as the tantalising opportunity to pilot the GT3 specification Lexus RC F as part of a new multi-marque format for round seven.

Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup

The championship runs from April to December 2024 and consists of seven qualifying rounds held at digital race tracks throughout the world. The live final will be held in conjunction with the Gran Turismo World Series in December 2024.

All participants must be aged six or over and each is required to own a copy of Gran Turismo 7 for the Sony PlayStation (PS4 or PS5). Please note that even if participants are in the top qualifying rounds online, those under the age of 13 may not be legally allowed to take part in the live final.

Detailed entry information and individual start times in different world regions will be published in due course on the TGR GT Cup section of the Toyota Gazoo Racing website.

Toyota Gazoo Racing and e-motorsports

Since 2019, virtual racing has become one of the pillars of Toyota Gazoo Racing’s worldwide motorsport activities. This is because we recognise that e-motorsport is able to make racing and sports cars accessible and enjoyable to everybody, irrespective of age or location.

In 2020, people paid more attention to e-motorsports than ever before, as evidenced by the hosting of the Virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans. Many players from all over the world also took part in the GR Supra GT Cup and the GR Yaris Time Trial, hosted by TGR. After being featured in Gran Turismo Sport, approximately 1.3 million GR Supra and 530,000 GR Yaris vehicles were purchased in-game, indicating the great player-appeal of GR models.
