STEZZANO, Italy – Brembo, the exclusive technical partner in high-performance braking systems for (the videogame) Gran Turismo™ 7, is at the forefront of the 2022 Gran Turismo World Series which gets underway today (May 27th) with the first rounds of the online Season 1. The competition is open to all the gamers who have a copy of Gran Turismo™ 7 for PS4™ or PS5™ consoles.

In the Tuning Shop of the game, players will be able to enhance the competitiveness of their original cars with the highest performing and most distinctive Brembo braking solutions, including Carbon Ceramic brake discs and GT|BM calipers in eight different colors.
Through the Sport Mode of the game, players get access to the 2022 Gran Turismo World Series.

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.
The competition then continues online with Season 2, with the fastest drivers invited to challenge the established stars at the World Finals in November. After two years, the finals return to the prestigious Sporting Monte Carlo, which hosted the 2018 and 2019 World Finals events.
In addition to the two in-person live events, fans will be able to watch the competitors go head-to-head in a series of three Nations Cup and three Manufacturers Cup broadcast World Series races. While the players will compete online from their homes all over the world, the competition is no less fierce and the skills on show no less impressive.
