The Gran Turismo México (GTM) category of the Super Cup is added as a support event to the FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX OF MEXICO CITY 2022 Presented by Heineken, confirmed from October 28 to 30, at the Hermanos Rodríguez Autodrome.

The GTM cars have 500 horsepower engines, tubular chassis, 6-speed sequential transmission and reach speeds close to 250 KM/H at the end of the main straight of Hermanos Rodríguez.

“We are very happy to once again have the participation of one of the best national motorsports championships.
