"Racing at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring 2012" now released
In the Gran Turismo TV section of Gran Turismo 5, a free program "Racing at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring 2012" has been released.
A documentary following the 4 months of preparation by Team GT Academy, leading to the 2012 Nürburgring 24 Hour race.
Kazunori Yamauchi successfully achieved a class victory in the Nürburgring 24 hour race, racing with a private team in the previous year. In the following year of 2012, Mr. Yamauchi has taken on a new challenge. The car is a commercial spec Nissan GT-R. And his team mates include Lucas Ordoñez , the racing driver born through Gran Turismo, together with Gran Turismo software engineers who will set up the racing car.
"The great grass roots race" no longer applies to the 24 hours of Nürburgring. There are many cars on the track from the FIA GT3 class, effectively turning the race into a testing ground for touring racecars. Find out for yourself how Team GT Academy took on the increasingly difficult Nürburgring 24 hour race.
