About the SSMD Group

SSMDG Gran Turismo Championship

The SSMD Group Gran Turismo Championship has a rich history dating back to 2009 when fourteen drivers based in Hong Kong competed in various championships for two years. However, as many drivers started families, the racing had to be put on hold. 


In August 2018, Franco Wong and Bem Ho reconnected and, along with other drivers, launched the SSMD Group Gran Turismo Championship. Today, the championship is growing with twenty-three drivers and counting.

Each championship season features a new theme, ranging from Touring Car Races and Japanese Performance to Classicsracer V8 Challenge and the current Classicsracer Modern Classics Challenge. The seasons consist of eight rounds, with one round of three races, held every fortnight. The races include a qualifying event to determine the final sixteen grid slots.

To accommodate drivers of different skill levels, the SSMDG Driver's Level is ranked in Gold, Silver, Green, and Blue based on their experience in Gran Turismo and Average Score per Attended Race (ASPAR) in the SSMDG Gran Turismo Championship.

To ensure fair races, a unique Balance of Performance system is applied to drivers based on the Lap Analysis of each race. Additionally, SSMDG Race Regulations are in place to cover any rules missed by the Gran Turismo AI system.

We are proud to see the championship growing and look forward to welcoming more friends to join us. Lastly, we would like to extend our gratitude to our championship sponsors.
