During the reveal livestream of Gran Turismo Sport, FIA Deputy President Graham Stoker talked about the partnersip with Sony and Polyphony Digital for Gran Turismo Sport.

“We have been working on this partnership for a number of years, and it’s an indication of how seriously we take this. This particular Gran Turismo, as you know, is marked by it’s authenticity, and to my mind, now the partnership with FIA brings an added degree of authenticity.

The other thing from our point of view is that it makes motorsport accessible. That’s what we gotta do. We gotta make sure that everybody around the world gets a chance to come into the sports. So I think it’s fabulous. I’m a big supporter.”

Asked what he thought of the racing he saw on the game, me answered that it was exciting.

Indeed, the racing we have seen so far today was quite exciting, with Japanese drivers dominating over the competition in the first tournament thanks to their consistency and clean racing.

GT Sport will launch in Japan, Asia and North America on November 15th, in Europe on November 16th and in UK on November 18th, exclusively on PS4.
