Watch the GT Sport world championship finale

Published: 18 November 2018

► The finale of the first GT Sport world championship
► Certified by the FIA
► Lexus won the constructors' trophy, yesterday

Today is the Nations Cup of the GT Sport world championship, the finale of the largest motorsport-based eSports program to date – and certainly the most ambitious for racing sims in general. Based, as you’d expect, around the latest addition of Gran Turismo (read our review here), the final will see 16 of the best GT Sport drivers in the world race on three tracks in three different car classes. 30 arrived in Monaco this weekend, there'll be 16 drivers in the final; but obviously, only one will win. 

Today’s Nation’s Cup final follows the Manufacturers’ Cup, which was won by the Lexus team, yesterday. 

Wait? A game?

That’s right, this is the first year of GT Sport’s FIA-certified championship, and it comes on the weekend as a similar eSports championship for F1 2018, too.

What are they racing?

You'll find the schedule, what the contestants will be driving and where below.

What will they win?

There doesn’t seem to be any prize money involved, but with so many manufacturers involved, and eSports on the rise, it’s likely this'll lead on to bigger things for the contestants. What's more, the winner will collect their trophy at the FIA Prize Giving Gala in December.
