Red Bull Beat the Pro tournament is an event to time-attack the Suzuka Circuit in Gran Turismo Sport game on PS4. A total of eight players will be invited to an exhibition race where they will compete with F1 driver Yuki Tsunoda. The tournament will be held in Gachinko.
This event is organised by Red Bull and will be held online until 24 October.
This event was held in response to the cancellation of the F1 Japan GP 2021 in a bid to provide Japanese motorsport fans with the opportunity to enjoy the race. Many fans were disappointed not being able to witness the F1 this year and the hash tag #Suzuka Yarose was trending. There was a similar event held back in 2020 but the time format has changed. However, this time, five participants who recorded the times of 500th, 600th, 700th, 800th and 1000th respectively, will be able to compete with Scuderia AlphaTauri Honda’s F1 driver Yuki Tsunoda in the Finals.
All participants from Japan are able to join in the exhibition race! The event, “Red Bull Beat The Pro 2021”, begins from 7 October through 24 October 2021. All you have to do is to launch the game, Gran Turismo Sport in PD4, select Sports > Time Trial > Red Bull Beat The Pro. You have to compete for lap time with Honda NSX Gr.3.

The lap time set by Yuki Tsunoda is “2’00.627”! Catch him in the highlights below:
