It’s been one month since registration opened for GT Academy here in the US, and we are already at an unprecedented number of registrants. As of today, we are at an astounding (50,000) participants! So for those of you who have registered, thank you for making GT Academy a success in the US! And for those who haven’t registered yet – it’s not too late to be a part of the ground-breaking competition that may turn you into a professional race car driver.
Registration is open through the end of Round 1, closing at NOON EST on January 23, 2011. Registrants can enter the online seasonal events area within Gran Turismo 5 to compete in Round 1, which consists of three time trial events designed to test players’ driving skills and mastery of the tracks using Nissan vehicles.
At the end of Round 1, the top 128 players in each of the four national regions will move on to the next round, culminating in Round 4, the national finals, this March. Out of the national finals, 16 competitors will rise to the GT Academy finals, where one person will earn the chance of a lifetime, to become a professional race car driver.
Visit here to learn more and register for GT Academy before noon on January 23, 2011. You must be a legal US resident and at least 18 years old to enter. See here for complete rules.
Thanks again, and GOOD LUCK!
