Gran Turismo World Tour - Tokyo: Apologies to the GT Competitors


Gran Turismo World Tour - Tokyo: Apologies to the GT Competitors

Rennes, October 25, 2019 — Within a context of very intensive use, a rare component failure has occurred on one T-GT racing wheel in Japan this month. Analysis and tests are currently underway. As the full assessments on the part of our services and qualified experts have not yet been completed, out of an abundance of precaution, a decision has been made to wait for the conclusions. Given the proximity to the event of Gran Turismo World in Tokyo and for the first time since the beginning of our adventure with Polyphony, the competition will not be able to take place using the T-GT racing wheel. We extend our sincere apologies to the entire GT community — most of all to the GT competitors who will be taking part in this round of the competition, as well as to the Polyphony organization. Please rest assured that Thrustmaster is giving this issue its full attention and will take all measures it deems appropriate.
