GT Academy to launch in PH, turns gamers to pro racers

Do you think you have what it takes to take your Gran Turismo skills and apply them in real-life racing? GT Academy is on its way to local shores and will be arriving next month to train the best gaming geeks into becoming professional racers.


We’ve been with the Nissan Philippines Inc. team just recently and their president, Mr. Antonio Zara announced that March 25, 2015 is the date that GT Academy will be launched locally. Initiated back in 2008, it is basically a driving program from Nissan, Sony, and Polyphony Digital that weeds out Gran Turismo (the popular PlayStaytion game) players and trains them to apply their on-screen talents on a real car, on a real track.



The race to the top is not an easy task as the academy will only choose the best virtual drivers. Once shortlisted, there will be activities to test not only skills, but also the physical endurance of the contestants at the latter part of the training. If you think you have the heart, talent, and the determination to be a professional racer then this might be your ticket in.

Psyched? Be sure to mark those calendars — March 25, 2015.
