About the GT Academy
The GT Academy is an innovative program in which top players of Gran Turismo are given the opportunity to become a real life professional race driver. This is a global project in which players who prove their skill on Gran Turismo become Nismo Athlete candidates, and gives them a chance to receive the training and the license for competing professionally in international races.
This competition that was started in 2008 in a collaboration between Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Nissan Europe, and Polyphony Digital immediately expanded its reach to countries around the globe. Its graduates are now active in the forefront of motorsports, in a variety of races including the 24 hours of Le Mans, Blancpain Endurance Series, GP3 Series, and more.
