Stage One: Online Qualifier Time Trials

Drivers will race on one of the four designated tracks using Gran Turismo Sport’s Lap Attack mode, and will submit their best lap times. All time submissions must be accompanied by a link to a video clip that captures the full lap and shows the Replay Details (after saving a Replay in Lap Attack, the Replay Details can be viewed through My Library). For an example of a valid video, click here. For information on recording and uploading a video clip using the PS4’s SHARE feature, click here. The 10 fastest Drivers from each of the four pre-selected tracks will qualify for the Race of Champions Qualifier (Stage Two).

  • Format: Time Trial / Top 10 fastest lap times per track advance.
  • Car:
    • Blue Moon Bay Speedway: Ford Mustang Gr.3

Stage Two: Race of Champions Qualifier

Top 40 qualifying Drivers will race online to determine the 16 that will compete in the PFAFF GT Sport Championships.

Drivers will be assigned to one of four Heats, based on the Online Qualifying results. Each Heat will race on multiple tracks, with points assigned to Drivers based on the final results of each individual race. Based on their total points, the top four Drivers from each Heat, 16 in total, will qualify for the PFAFF GT Sport Championships (Stage Three).

  • Format: Four Heats / Top four Drivers from each advance.
  • Car: Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

Stage Three: PFAFF GT Sport Championships

Our live National Finals hosted at the Cineplex Colossus Cinemas Vaughan, and livestreamed globally on twitch.tv/worldgaming, will feature the Top 16 Drivers from the Race of Champions Qualifier stage. Only one driver can walk away as the ultimate champion!

Drivers will be assigned to one of two Semifinal Heats, based on the Race of Champions Qualifier results. Each Heat will race on multiple tracks, with points assigned to Drivers based on the final results of each individual race. The top four Drivers from each Heat, based on their total points, will qualify for the Championship Series (eight in total). Those eight Drivers will again race on multiple tracks, earning points based on the results, to determine the final standings of the GT Sport Canadian Championships, presented by PFAFF Motors and PS4.

  • Format: Two qualifying Semifinal Heats / Top four Drivers from each advance to Championship Series, to determine final standings.
