We haven’t seen Gran Turismo Sport since Polyphony announced it at Paris Games Week last fall. Come next week however, that is set to change. Scheduled for May 19 at 10:45 AM PT, the unveiling stream will include a new trailer, along with the pre-release test races for the game’s two championships.
The footage and championships will be part of a two-day London event. There will even be a trophy ceremony for the winners of the test races. Taking to the PlayStation Blog, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi revealed there will also be a world first 9 full-scale Vision GT Cars and 2 ¼ size models present at the event.
For the latest Gran Turismo, developer Polyphony Digital is teaming with the FIA, International Automobile Federation, to hold two in game championships. Running at the same time, players can represent their country by racing in the Nations Cup, or support a manufacturer in the Manufacturer Fan Cup. The idea is that winners will actually be included in trophy ceremonies alongside real-world drivers.
All the action kicks off with the new trailer on May 19 at 10:45 AM PT. The test races will follow, starting at 11:00, and then the trophy ceremony at 12:30.
