GT Academy 2014 Introduction

The GT Academy is a driver discovery/development program started in 2008 through a collaboration between Gran Turismo and Nissan. Online qualifiers are held within Gran Turismo, and the top qualifiers are invited to National Finals in each participating country. Those who pass this final will then participate in a Race Camp held at Silverstone, UK, for the final selection. The final winner will undergo an intensive Driver Development Programme designed by Nissan, and will participate in races around the world as a professional driver.

GT Academy is coming back in 2014 as the 6th installment. The online qualification starts on 21 April whitin Gran Turismo 6, exclusively on PlayStation®3. We hope to see you online!
