Tips and TricksEdit
- Fight fire with fire. Drive a proper racecar, not a race-converted road car (an exception can be made if your car is a special road car, like the Jaguar XJ220 '92 or the Lotus Elise GT1). Any racecar you've won from the regional leagues (Euro and Pacific League) might be an effective choice. Be sure to fine-tune your car accordingly, especially the gearbox settings and the tire choice (it's best to use medium-compound race tires for the series).
- The opponents here will be very difficult to beat, especially since they are coded to appear with Racing Super-Soft tires. Unwavering concentration and the application of all the players experience will be crucial.
- A Suzuki ESCUDO Pikes Peak '98 will be considered as the best vehicle to win the championship so you beat this with very good difference of time.
- A unique race start theme can be heard when the player starts a race of this championship.
- Except for the Event Synthesizer Professional Level race (which triggers a 5 race championship), this is the only championship of Gran Turismo 2 with a start from the grid. The other two championships of this game (respectively the GT300 Championship and the GT500 Championship) have rolling starts instead.
- ↑ The Vauxhall branded version of the car will appear as an opponent only when the player select "English" on the language selection screen of the PAL version of the game. If another language is selected, the Opel branded version will appear instead. In the NTSC versions of the game, only the Opel branded version will appear
