Star Players

To recognize players leading the championship standings, we’ve introduced a brand-new Star Player system. Only qualifying players* in the top 200 season point rankings (or the top 10 for their country or chosen manufacturer) will be able to register for this prestigious title.

Drivers who’ve registered as Star Players will be given the opportunity to enter the Top 24 Superstar Races where bonus points can be earned. Plus, their in-game Driver Rating will be displayed as “S”, for the entire GT community to see.

The GT Sport App

As the perfect way to keep track of your favorite drivers on their road to the World Finals of the FIA GT Championships, don’t forget to download the free Gran Turismo Sport Companion app to your Android or iOS device. Just log in with your PSN ID and you can join millions of players sharing photos of race highlights, liveries, stats and stunning decals.

As always, stay tuned to PlayStation.Blog for the first word on more upcoming GT content. And until next time, drivers, we’ll see you on that championship starting grid.

I don't get why Sony didn't spend 2 minutes showcasing the GT Sport Championships at E3. Instead they chose to play live music and talk about games (without the actual developers). Sony also had live music performances in 2016 and 2017 but those were far better.

because they would get headlines like Sony has no better use of E3 than talk about an online competition from a 2016 game .
