José Miguel de la Puente, Group Marketing Manager of PlayStation Spain, celebrates the association and believes that “it is an agreement that will be very beneficial for both parties. Toyota is a reference partner for Gran Turismo at an international level and we are delighted that this good relationship is also bearing fruit at a local level. The arrival of Gran Turismo 7 is a perfect time to be able to collaborate together.”
PlayStation and Toyota Spain, as a team also in real and virtual competitions
Before we have said that Toyota has been synonymous with Gran Turismo for more than two decades. The relationship between both brands is very close; now more with this announcement. In addition to being reflected on the track, the relationship will also be transferred to the competitive plane, where Gran Turismo has a prominent role.
And it is that PlayStation will become one of the main partners of the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Iberian Cup, the new one-make cup promoted by Toyota Spain, Toyota Caetano Portugal and Motor & Sport Institute (MSi), in which teams and drivers will share the limelight with an edition of the Toyota GR Yaris RZ specifically prepared for this competition.
PlayStation will be present with different acts in each of the events of this competition; from preferential spaces in the stages to the paddock area. In addition, all the cars in the cup will display the emblematic Gran Turismo logo on the front windshield visor, as is already the case in virtual Gran Turismo competitions and other parallel motorsport competitions.
Likewise, Toyota will be one of the main protagonists of the second edition of the Spanish Gran Turismo Championship, the official local competition that will launch a new season with Gran Turismo 7 very soon. Toyota will appear in the Grand Prix of the championship, will have its own one-make test and will exalt by offering the winner of the championship a Toyota Yaris GR SPORT GT7 Edition as a prize. Wow.
A collaboration with years of work: Toyota and Gran Turismo, in search of the best experience
Toyota and Gran Turismo have been working together for a long time. The result of these years of work is the GR Supra Racing Concept model, one-make competitions such as the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GT Cup or the presence of the Japanese manufacturer as an official partner of the FIA ??Gran Turismo Chpionships.
Toyota Spain and PlayStation thus ratify their collaboration agreement, all with the aim of offering fans of the motor world the best experience; both in real life and in competition and in the highly anticipated Gran Turismo 7.
