It's a question that has been buzzing around the scene for a while now, can a gamer compete in real world racing? Nissan seem to think so and have teamed up with Sony, to find a driver that can pilot a race-ready 370Z in the European GT4 Cup.
Nissan's GT Academy will be going live on the 17th December - so, you best get your thumbs ready to do battle. Budding racer wanna-be's, will have to battle it out on Sony's Gran Turismo 5 to prove their worth. The fastest 20 gamers will then be drafted through to the next round.
It's going to be a gruelling battle, as each participating countries fastest come head to head. Only then will the next top 20 will be selected to go on to the five day race academy at Silverstone. The game then moves into reality as joy-pads get exchanged for a fleet of performance Nissans.
Just like an X-Factor culling, the weak won't be spared, if you can't cut the mustard you hit the road. The hardcore driver boot-camp will have your mental and physical fitness pushed to its limit - until only two hopefuls remain.
It's here that each will get a chance to qualify for an international race licence. But, only one will secure the seat and drive in the Nissan 370Z.
If you fancy your chances as a wheelman and live in one of the following countries - you need to enter this!
The GT Academy competition is open to participants from the following territories: Austria; Belgium; France; Germany; Ireland; Italy; Netherlands; Portugal; Spain; Switzerland; UK; and Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, Australia and New Zealand.
