Monaco sees the first ever FIA certified Gran Turismo champion crowned

by on November 19, 2018

The Gran Turismo Championship was held this weekend in Monaco with the winners receiving the same honours as real world champions.

The event was FIA certified, and when the prize giving gala happens in December Igor Fraga of Brazil will hold his Nations Cup trophy aloft in victory. Team Lexus won the Manufacturers Series with Tyrell Meadows, Vincent Rigaud and Kanata Kawakami leading them to victory.

This was the first eSports tournament officially certified by the FIA, signalling (chortle) a bright future for the virtual racing scene and cements Gran Turismo’s status as a purist driving simulator.
