Sony Computer Entertainment Australia and Nissan Motor Company Australia have announced today that the internationally acclaimed GT Academy program is coming to Australia in 2014.

This is big news as players or drivers compete to dominate the Gran Turismo 6 leaderboard on PlayStation 3 to be invited to the live National Final event. The best racers will then be selected and sent to the International finals hosted Silverstone Circuit in UK to represent Australia.

If you ever wanted to become a real racer after putting your skills into the Gran Turismo game then this is your chance. Past graduates have turned career and competed in many different races such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“This ground-breaking talent search program has been hugely successful overseas. Now that it’s in Australia I can’t wait for it to unearth and develop our country’s next great motor racing star.”Peter Jones – Managing Director & CEO, Nissan Motor Company Australia
