Through the Sport Mode of the game, players get access to the 2022 Gran Turismo World Series. Once there, they sign up for the Nations Cup in which drivers represent their respective country and compete for individual glory, and/or Manufacturers Cup, where they race on behalf of their favourite car manufacturer against all other participating ones.
The Gran Turismo World Series will see a welcome return to some live events in 2022. The top racers from Season 1 will be invited to compete in a three-day World Series Showdown in July against the 2021 World finalists at the spectacular Red Bull Hangar-7 in Salzburg Austria. This wrap-up event for Season 1, and the mid-point of the 2022 Gran Turismo World Series.
