About the GT Academy
The GT Academy is a driver discovery/development program started in 2008 through a collaboration between Gran Turismo and the Nissan Motor Company. Online qualifiers are held within Gran Turismo, and the top qualifiers are invited to a national final in each participating country. Those who pass this final will then participate in a racecamp held at the Silverstone Circuit of the UK for the final selection. The final winner is then promised support from Nissan, and will participate in races around the world as a racing driver.
Currently as of 2014, the GT Academy Graduates are achieving spectacular results as racing drivers around the world. Lucas Ord??ez, the winner of the 2008 has entered Japan’s Super GT series through Nissan’s customer team NDDP Racing. The 2011 European champion Jann Mardenborough will be joining Arden International to race in the GP3 series, the entry point to F1 racing. And 2012 European Champion Wolfgang Reip will be driving the NISSAN ZEOD RC in the LeMans 24 hour race.
