The Formula Gran Turismo World Championship is a 15-part race series. It is the longest race series in Gran Turismo 4.

BackgroundEdit

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.

TriviaEdit

Many of the races in this championship either closely or exactly replicate many races used in Formula 1 and IndyCar, both past and present:

  • Tokyo R246 (replicates the many street circuits used in the IndyCar championship)
  • Twin Ring Motegi Super Speedway (replicates previous IndyCar races held at the Motegi Speedway)
  • Grand Valley Speedway (replicates past European Grands Prix held at the Nürburgring Grand Prix Circuit, as both courses are tight and technical)
  • Cote d'Azur (exactly replicates the Monaco Grand Prix, with both races having 78 laps)
  • Infineon Raceway (replicates the IndyCar Grand Prix of Sonoma Raceway)
  • Laguna Seca (replicates previous IndyCar races held at Laguna Seca Raceway)
  • Nürburgring Nordschleife (replicates previous Formula 1 Grands Prix held around the Nordschleife)
  • Suzuka (replicates the Japanese Grand Prix)
