AF­TER months of gru­elling com­pe­ti­tion, the Nis­san GT Academy an­nounced the 25 qual­i­fiers who will race each other in the SA fi­nals to­day and to­mor­row.

KZN has two rac­ers in the fi­nals, Deon Reddy and Wes­ley Robb, while one of the top con­tenders, Gaut­eng’s Ja­cobus Volschenk also qual­i­fied in KZN.

They will com­pete against the other 22 vir­tual rac­ers for one of eight cov­eted seats on a flight to Race Camp at the fa- mous Sil­ver­stone cir­cuit in the UK, where their Mid­dle East­ern coun­ter­parts will join them in the fight for the ul­ti­mate prize of be­com­ing a pro­fes­sional Nis­san rac­ing driver.

The fi­nals in­clude chal­lenge heats us­ing Gran­Tur­ismo 5 on the PlayS­ta­tion con­soles, real driv­ing tests, phys­i­cal fit­ness tests and a me­dia chal­lenge. The top eight fi­nal­ists will be an­nounced to­mor­row.
