Nis­san and Sony PlayS­ta­tion(R) staged the Nis­san PlayS­ta­tion(R) GT Academy Mid­dle East chal­lenge in Dubai on June 20-21, whereby six Gran Turismo gamers got a once-in-a-life­time shot at be­com­ing a real pro­fes­sional racer.

Three rac­ers each from Saudi Ara­bia and Le­banon split top hon­ours and they will move to Silverstone to prove their real-track met­tle.

The top six are: Hadi Ab­del Hadi, Ba­haa Ab­del Hadi and Mo­hamad Ja­mal Ghan­dour (all from Le­banon) and Walid Al Ghamdi, Yasser Al Man­soor and Ahmed Khaled (all from Saudi Ara­bia). They will un­dergo a race driv­ers' boot­camp at Bri­tain's fa­mous Silverstone cir­cuit to de­ter­mine the over­all Mid­dle East GT Academy win­ner, who will then be given the op­por­tu­nity to be a pro­fes­sional track racer.
