January 1st, 2012 by Jordan

U.S. GT Academy winner Bryan Heitkotter recently sat down for an in-depth one-on-one video interview with InsideSimRacing‘s Darin Gangi. Bryan discusses his background, what it was really like to come up through the ranks of GT Academy USA, and how he’s making the most out of his time with Nissan in preparations for the 24 Hours of Dubai.

As you may recall, he’ll be joining fellow GT Academy champions Lucas Ordoñez, Jordan Tresson, and Jann Mardenborough in less than two weeks’ time for the endurance race. Stay tuned to GTPlanet for complete coverage of the event, January 12-14!

    what a awesome guy. I am from Australia and I hope this spreads right round the country. He deserved it and he can clearly drive. I wish him all the best in his career and I will follow him all the way. Good luck at Dubai and hopefully we will be seeing you at Le Mans in 2012 or in the years to come. I will be watching! Oh and I added him on PS3, hopefully might get to race with him one day :)

    Someone tell me I wasnt the only one that saw r1600turbo at the #4 spot on the gt academy leaderboards.

    • R1600Turbo

      You did. Think it was #5 though. Why?

    • SpecMiata-JSW

      Nah, you must have been 4th. Some other guy was 5th.

    • Naruto149

      just saying, you were in an interview for bryan. i’d feel special just for that.

  5. He’s really a great guy, too bad the 24h of Dubai isn’t broadcasted anywhere, I’d love to see the whole team of GT Academy drivers racing.
