TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GT Cup 2021: The Details

We're back with the latest news on GT. Here are further details about the Toyota Gazoo Racing GT CUP 2021.

Details regarding the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GT Cup 2021 e-Motorsports series were released on April 6 by Toyota GAZOO Racing, an official partner of the FIA Gran Turismo Championships.

TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GT Cup 2021 is a global race series much like the GR Supra GT Cup that began in 2019. For the event, a new element has been implemented where the race vehicle changes every round, thus the series will feature a wide lineup of cars, including the GR Supra, which reached 1.3 million in-game cars purchased since its inclusion in Gran Turismo Sport. The new GR Yaris, with 530,000 in-game purchases, will also be part of the mix, as well as the recently-announced GR 86, which will be available sometime mid-year.

The series begins on April 25 and will consist of eight races, including seven qualifying rounds. The Final is scheduled to take place in December. Whether you participate yourself or simply pull for your favorite driver, be sure not to miss any of the exciting action that can only be experienced through e-Motorsports!
