GT Academy 2015 Kicks Off Today

Think you've got what it takes to race with the best?

It's time for the fifth season of the Gran Turismo Academy; the 2015 competition begins today, April 21, and will remain open to all participants through June 16. For more, visit the PlayStation Blog.

Just cue up Gran Turismo 6 and give it a shot. At the culmination of the 8-week contest, racers with the 20 fastest in-game race times will go head-to-head in person this summer at the US Nationals. And interesting news for US drivers:

"In a change from previous years, the U.S. region will for the first time participate as part of the International competition where only the top six will advance to the International Finals. There they will try to prove they are one of the best in the world, deserving of a shot at the dream job of a professional racing placement for Nissan."

Sweet, huh? I was always pretty good at GT but I know I've got no shot against the best in the world. But if you think you can impress, produce your best track time and hope for the best!

Like you Ben, I consider myself pretty good at Gran Turismo. With that said there is "good", and then there is GT Academy good.

I was shocked at how fast these drivers are when I raced against their ghosts. So surprised in fact that I decided that I didn't even belong on the same track with 'em!
