With the close of the GT Academy Online Qualification last month, our Top 32 US and Canadian contestants are gearing up to compete head to head through various virtual challenges at the legendary MTV Studio in Times Square on Friday, 7/11. We’ll narrow down the competition to the Top 12 and send them to the UK in August, where they will experience and compete in real motorsport challenges at the legendary Silverstone Race Circuit. Only one winner will be selected as the next professional racecar driver for Nissan, starting with their first professional race at the 24HR Dubai in January 2015.
To give you an inside look at this year’s competition, we are partnering with Twitch to live stream the entire National Finals on Friday, 7/11 starting at 7am Pacific / 10am Eastern. It will be hosted by some of the most respected and experienced GT Academy and GT6 members, including:
- Jordan Greer – Owner of GT Planet (Largest GT Community Site)
- Nick McMillen – GT Academy 2013 Champion
- Danny Sullivan – GT Academy Judge / Legendary Racecar driver
- Dhani Jones – GT Academy Host
Additionally, viewers of the Live Stream through Twitch will have a chance to win numerous DLC prizes, including in-game credit ranging from $100K to $1M and the limited 5-Car Pack — previously only available when pre-ordering GT6.
Stay tuned for more info on the live stream next week as we look forward to some incredible GT6 battles with the top 32 contestants
