GT Academy is a collaboration between PlayStation® and Nissan that uses the virtual world of the Gran Turismo®6 game to unearth real-world racing talent.
Only two weeks remain for racing driver hopefuls across Europe to enter the NISMO PlayStation® GT Academy competition. Why not compete for a chance to become a real NISMO racing driver by battling it out to post the fastest times in a virtual Nissan GT-R GT3 car on a stunningly accurate recreation of the world-famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit.
With the first phase of the competition closing on 16 June, the 14 eligible competitors with the fastest times in the UK will be invited to participate in the GT Academy National Finals. They will compete for the chance to represent The UK at the famous GT Academy Race Camp at Silverstone in the UK.
The competition remains open until 07:59 BST (08:59 CET) on Monday 16 June, so there is still time for aspiring racing drivers to take part through the Special Events section within Gran Turismo 6. The stakes are high, as the overall winner will be put through Nissan’s highly-acclaimed Driver Development Programme that has already achieved great success. Four GT Academy graduates will be racing for Nissan in the famous Le Mans 24 Hours race this month, including the UK’s first ever British GT Academy champion Jann Mardenborough!
