A New Exciting eSports Challange With Two Different Classes

The Honda Racing eMS Gran Turismo Fastest Attack 2023 is an exciting event that consists of two leaderboard challenges. It is open to participants of different age groups – those aged between 6-17 can compete in the U17 class, while those 18 and over can join the Challenge Class.

To enter the competition, all you need is Gran Turismo 7 on either PS4 or PS5. Simply visit the Sport Mode Lap Time Challenge area and set a time in one of the Online Time Challenges.

Even if you’re not into esports, you still have a chance to win in-game prizes. There are three prize tiers, with up to two million credits up for grabs by setting a representative time.

The Challenge Class takes place at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, while the U17s compete at Suzuka.

You’ll have the opportunity to drive the FL5-generation Honda Civic Type R, which was introduced in the September update of Gran Turismo 7.

This virtual version of the car has been modified with a tune, a roll cage, and a livery design inspired by a car from the real-world Japanese Super Taikyu Series competing in the STQ class.
