Nations Cup teams determined for the 2023 Gran Turismo World Series Showdown

Taking place in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Showdown esports event will witness the debut of Fanatec sim racing gear during a World Series competition for the first time.

After a series of qualifying rounds in Gran Turismo 7, we now know the line-up for half of the competitions that will take place next month – the Nations Cup.

In this championship, three drivers join forces to represent their nation in 12 representative states. The 2023 showdown event introduces a new format for the series, as it has traditionally been held by individual drivers since 2018.

Spain’s reigning champions, Coque Lopez (who clinched the title in dramatic fashion in Monaco last year) return, along with Jose Serrano and Pol Urra. Fresh off a win in the Olympic Esports Series, Kylian Drumont is once again representing France after a stunning debut win at the 2022 Salzburg Showdown event. He is joined by Baptiste Beauvois and Thomas Labouteley.

Alongside Giorgio Mangano and Marco Busnelli, 2021 champion Valerio Gallo will also be there for Italy.

Remarkably, Malaysia has made it to the showdown for the first time, but countries like the United Kingdom, Hungary and Argentina will not be represented this time.

The line-up for the adjacent Manufacturers Cup has yet to be announced. It takes place on August 11th, the Nations Cup on August 12th. Tickets to visit the event in person are available from €15.
