The GR Supra GT Cup will launch on 14 April and run until August 2019. If you prove yourself in these preliminary online rounds, you’ll take centre stage at a finals event to be held at Tokyo Motor Show in October.
The announcement coincides with the opening of the Gran Turismo Sport World Series, which launches in Paris tomorrow (16 March). Tetsuya Tada, the GR Supra’s Chief Engineer will join the President of GT Sport developer Polyphony Digital, Kazunori Yamauchi on a panel that will reveal more details and explore Toyota’s history with Gran Turismo.
