"These are 15 races based on an original formula to decide the fastest in history."
The Formula Gran Turismo World Championship is a 15-part race series. It is the longest race series in Gran Turismo 4.
The Formula Gran Turismo is designed to emulate Formula 1-style racing, with each race lasting just over 305 km (exactly like Formula 1, except in Côte d'Azur and Suzuka Circuit - two exception that also happen at the Formula 1 Monaco and Japanese Grands Prix respectively). All cars in the race series are Polyphony Formula Gran Turismo race cars, an imitation of Formula 1 race cars. These are the quickest (at least in the areas of grip and acceleration) cars in the game. They are held back though, due to the player only being able to use medium compound race tires, limiting the overall pace in endurance racing due to the constant need to go to the pits to replace worn down tires. The player may choose to use the same car in the race series, but may also use any other race car they feel would outpace the Formula cars throughout the race series.
