Beware, the Gran Turismo field just got more competitive! Former Formula 1 driver Romain Grosjean expands his esports racing team R8G Esports as they announce a new line-up of Gran Turismo talents.

Five drivers have been revealed already over the past weeks. The most recent addition to R8G is French player Baptiste “TsuTsu” Beauvois. The 24-year-old previously competed for Team Redline and made it to several high-level tournaments, including a fourth place finish at the Nation’s Cup World Final 2019.

TsuTsu will join 16-year-old Kaj “Kajracer” De Bruin as new teammate. The young newcomer doesn’t yet have a long tournament history, but shows huge potential with his high driver rating.

The same applies to Callum “Haku” Lux who was announced last Wednesday, February 10. At only 15 years of age, he is yet to enter the main stage but brings a lot of talent to the table.

Alexander “AURA” Buller was added to the team on February 8. The German driver is quite experienced with several tournament participations, including the Manufacturer Exhibition Champion and the Nation Cup Exhibition.

The US-talent Randall “Originals” Haywood was the first driver to be announced for R8G’s GT squad. The 19-year-old made it to the World Finals twice and reached second place in the GT World Manufacturer finals.
