If you fancy yourself a budding race-car driver then you’ll probably already know about Sony’s innovative GT Academy programme – a competition which aims to find the best Gran Turismo players in the world and transform them into real life racers through vigorous training exercises.
The competition – which is already in its fourth term – is set to return on 1st May, starting with the release of an online qualification event available through the PlayStation Store. This standalone free download – completely separate from the retail release of Gran Turismo 5 – will allow you to compete for a place in the national finals, before embarking on a training event at Silverstone.
The overall winner will be readied for entry into the Dubai 24-hour endurance race scheduled to take place next January. More details can be found on the PlayStation Blog. Do you think you’ve got what it takes?
