The W300, or World 300, is a defunct championship series run on GrandPrixGames.org that was one of the predecessors to the GrandPrixGames Super League. The series, which was launched in 2006, folded along with its sister series WGP in mid-2008 due to administrative issues. It was then decided to streamline the two championships into the new GPGSL series. Two seasons were completed, while the third season was forever left incomplete due to the series demise.
