GT ACADEMY: NATIONAL FINALS
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.
