How to race against the motorsports stars
Unfortunately, you cannot race against the three professional drivers directly. In the challenge, you try to beat their fastest lap times at Suzuka Circuit. To overtake them, you have to simply play Gran Tursimo Sport as long as the event is available, select the ‘Sport Mode’ and go to the ‘Time Trial’ tab. There, you can find the event called ‘Red Bull Beat The Pro’ and record your fastest lap time.
The challenge comes with a special event car: the SF19 Super Formula. The event is just for fun according to Gran Turismo, therefore, there won’t be any prizes.
