The Japan Electronic Sports Grand Touring (JEGT) Grand Prix is all set to make a triumphant return in December. For its second season, the competition will boast a total prize pool amounting to US$50,000 behind a new sponsor partnership with Japanese automotive parts supplier and race team Autobacs.

The JEGT Grand Prix had a successful inaugural season last year, bringing together professional racers and JEGT-certified sim racers in a thrilling Pro-Am competitive environment.

Last year’s competition featured Super GT driver Jann Mardenborough, but it was sim racer Takuma Miyazono who took home the grand prize.
