VIR­TUAL SE­RIES BEGINS

The Tribune (NZ) - - MID WEEK MOTORING -

Nis­san Plays­ta­tion GT Acad­emy has just launched the lat­est it­er­a­tion of its ‘‘vir­tual to real’’ race com­pe­ti­tion.

This year six ter­ri­to­ries are host­ing the global ini­tia­tive, which has seen an as­ton­ish­ing 6 mil­lion en­trants since it launched in 2008.

Hope­ful rac­ers from Aus­tralia, In­done­sia, Mex­ico, North Africa (Al­ge­ria, Egypt and Morocco), Philip­pines and Thai­land will be able to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion, with fur­ther re­gions launch­ing their own GT Acad­emy com­pe­ti­tions at a later date in con­junc­tion with Gran Turismo Sport, which will be re­leased on PlayS­ta­tion 4 on Novem­ber 15.

As part of the long­stand­ing part­ner­ship with Nis­san, Gran Turismo devel­oper, Polyphony Dig­i­tal, is sup­port­ing this com­pe­ti­tion with a unique, early ver­sion of Gran Turismo Sport fea­tur­ing only Nis­san cars for the live re­cruit­ment phase of GT Acad­emy 2016. So those par­tic­i­pat­ing in GT Acad­emy 2016 will be among the first to ex­pe­ri­ence an early ver­sion of the game be­fore its re­lease date.
