Stick around to watch some racing after the event

Polyphony Digital will debut new footage from Gran Turismo Sport next week, according to the PlayStation Blog. A livestream event will kick off with the premiere of a new trailer at 10:45 a.m. PT on May 19.

Fans can watch live on Gran Turismo or PlayStation's YouTube channels, and are encouraged to stick around after the trailer for more Gran Turismo events. Starting at 11 a.m., the developer will host a pair of Gran Turismo Championship pre-season races.

These races are part of the Nations Cup and Manufacturer Cup, which will run over the course of the year. They are held in partnership with the International Automobile Federation, FiA.

Also promised during the stream is more information about the PlayStation 4 game, the next installment of the popular racing franchise. Sony first announced it with a trailer in October, as part of its Paris Games Week press event. Gran Turismo Sport will enter beta at some point later this year; Polyphony Digital also said last fall that it was working to make the game compatible with PlayStation VR.
