Nissan Partners with Sony for Second Season of GT Academy
Have you had the opportunity to see the popular non-scripted television series GT Academy on Spike TV? If not, you'll get a second shot at the show when it reappears for its second season this fall. Inspired by a partnership between Nissan North America and Sony Computer Entertainment America, the show challenges racing fans and gamers to compete in a series of time trials online in specific Nissan vehicles for the chance of becoming a real-life racing driver. The 2011 competition attracted over 53-thousand competitors across the U.S., but Bryan Heitkotter of California grabbed the title of winner. He now races for Nissan in the Middle East, Europe, and the United States.
In response to the Heitkotter's success, Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital, states, "It makes me very proud to see the graduates of the GT Academy racing around the world with Nissan. This year we are aiming to make GT Academy bigger and better than ever before and so I am creating a new series of driving challenges open to anyone with a PS3 (terms and conditions will apply). You don't have to be an expert to have a go. Added to that, each country will host live GT Academy entry events to ensure that as many people as possible can enter the 2012 GT Academy."1 Gamers interested in participating can register here (http://us.gran-turismo.com/us/) by June 11-24 for this year's competition.
