History of SSMD Group

SSMD Group Gran Turismo Championship

The history of SSMD Group Gran Turismo Championship dated back in 2009 Gran Turismo 5 era,

where 14 drivers battle out various championships for 2 years.

However, as many of the drivers started their families, the racing had put to a pause.

Fast forward to August 2018, when the founder of the championship,

Franco Wong and Bem Ho connected again and gather the drivers once more to launch

the SSMD Group Gran Turismo Championship. The Championship started with 9 drivers

to now 32 drivers and still growing.

Each season has a different Championship theme, from Touring Car Race, Japanese Performance,

Cayman Cup, Integra Cup, GT4 Championship, MX-5 Cup, JDM 280 Battle and John Cooper Cup races.

Each season has six rounds, we race one round of three races every fortnight.

There is a qualifying race to fight for the final 16 grid slots.

Since we have different levels of drivers, we apply a unique Balance of Performance system

to close in the field to make close racing. Also, we use SSMD Group racing rules

to cover the ones missed by the Gran Turismo AI system, to ensure the race is fair for everyone.

It is great to see the Championship growing by the month,

and we look forward to seeing more friends joining us.

Lastly, we would like to say THANK YOU to our Championship sponsors.
