VIRTUAL SERIES BEGINS
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.
