'Gran Turismo Sport' is a game in the Gran Turismo series. Released in October 2017, it is the first game in the Gran Turismo series to be released on the PlayStation 4. Gran Turismo Sport promises drastically improved graphics and sound quality, and a revamped physics engine.
A notable aspect in the game is that it is supported by the official governing body of motorsport, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). As such, they sponsor the multiplayer events found in the game.
FIA and Gran Turismo involvementEdit
As an effort to make Gran Turismo more recognized as motorsport than gaming, the game will feature and hold two FIA online championships and will open to all ages.
In this championship, the player will either compete and race to represent their home country or spectate and cheer for the players who are taking part of a race.
