Nissan today announced the second season of the much anticipated Nissan PlayStation GT which aims to search for racing drivers amongst the ‘aam aadmis’ of the country. Without having to pay tons of money you can just use your talent in gaming and the virtual world of Gran Turismo 6 to become a real world racing driver.
Like last year, the hunt for the drivers will begin at the national capital and will be then held in Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai. The online qualification rounds, where gamers have the convenience to start playing from the comfort of their homes, has already begun from June 2, 2015 and will go on to June 16, 2015.
In fact online gamers will have the exclusive opportunity to drive the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo as a part of qualifying. Ten winners from the live event will join ten online victors in July at the MMST track in Chennai. These twenty racers will have the chance to grab one of the six seats to go to Silverstone between August 13 to August 20, 2015.
The 2015 GT Academy will also feature a new leg in the competition, GT Academy Asia. The six Indians heading to Silverstone will have the opportunity to go head to head against the best from Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Japan. The winner of the GT Academy Asia will get to race at the Dubai 24hrs in January 2016.
So what are you waiting for? Head straight to these venues to fulfil your dream of becoming a racing driver:
