The FIA and Polyphony Digital Inc. have joined forces to create the first-ever FIA-certified Gran Turismo Championship as part of a long-term agreement.

This ground breaking project will promote eSports and allow both entities to accelerate development. The FIA-certified Gran Turismo Championships will be composed of two major competitions:

  • The FIA-certified Gran Turismo Nations Cup
  • The FIA-certified Gran Turismo Manufacturer Fan Cup

Competitions will start in 2017. Moreover, in cooperation with the FIA’s ASN (national sporting authority) in each country, the game will act as a gateway to facilitate driver transition from virtual to real-life racing. Indeed, by fulfilling various prerequisites, the gamers will be eligible for the “FIA Gran Turismo Digital Licence” from their local ASN.
