Don't miss the action-packed virtual race

For the second round, racers will be taken to the Tokyo Expressway – East Outer Loop, a fictional city that appears in Gran Turismo Sport (GT Sport). The track consists of five sectors, 12 turns, and a total of 7.3 kilometers of tarmac. It should be interesting to watch how racers will manage to secure their spots in tight corners unlike the previous Monza Tracks which seem to be a cakewalk for them.

As a recap, the champions of the first round include Terrence Lallave (Sporting Category), Jether Miole (Promotional Class), and Russel Cabrera (Junior Class). Their racing skills will be put to the test in the second round of the e-Motorsport Series to see if they can retain their top spots.

Take note that the points of the top finishers in the second round will be multiplied by 1.5, providing them an edge in the next round. The first round doesn’t have the multiplier scheme just yet, while the third round will introduce an x2.0 multiplier which should help every racer including those who had a rough start get the chance to win it all.
