GT Academy 2015 is finally under-way! A special GT Academy booth has been set up at the “Fuji TV Spring Fest 2015” show floor, hosted at the network headquarters building in Odaiba, Tokyo. There’s also a special “Nissan Note NISMO S” painted in “GT Academy” colours on display here.
On April 29, racing driver Tsugio Matsuda appeared on stage to the delight of the crowd. He commented: “It’s truly incredible that the first GT Academy Champion, Lucas, is driving in the same race as myself (Super GT, Ed.) as a rival in the same class (GT500, Ed.).”
The same door that opened the way for Lucas is now opening up for someone else.
The stage for Round 1 of the Online Qualifiers in the Seasonal Events within Gran Turismo 6 is set on the Silverstone GP Circuit driving the GT-R NISMO.
On May 2 and 3, a Qualifier Live Event for the Japanese Finals will also be held at the “Super GT Round 2 Fuji GT500km Race”. Who will be the one to grab the ticket to the Finals ahead of the online competition!?
And of course, don’t forget to watch Lucas driving for Kondo Racing!
A Fuji Speedway Super Lap event with GT500 cars is also available for the online Seasonal Events of Gran Turismo 6. Those who are visiting the actual Fuji Speedway can experience both the virtual and real Fuji Speedways!
