This weekend the Gran Turismo World Tour heads to New York, and as usual, Polyphony have prepared a number of surprises to present alongside the event!

The first of which was that tyre manufacturer Michelin will be partnering with Gran Turismo, joining other high profile sponsors such as the FIA and Tag Heuer.

Michelin ambassador and former Indycar champion Juan-Pablo Montoya was also on hand to make the announcement, as well as to compete in the first ever GT Sport Pro-Am event!

Despite being an F1 race winner, Montoya initially found the sim rig quite difficult, resulting in a poor starting position of 9th. However, he was a quick learner, and managed a solid performance in the race!
