During an autumn of pseudonyms, the 2012 GT Academy winners have been training and getting their advanced race licences. With 2012 a little less than three weeks from an end, they’ve gathered at Silverstone to train together ahead of their ultimate prize – the 2013 Dubai 24 hours.
The first 2012 winner to break cover was Belgium’s Wolfgang Reip. The 25 year old from Lachutel won the European competiton in August. He was soon followed by 23 year old Mark Shulzhitskiy from Vladivostok who won the Russian Academy.
Two winners’ identites were kept under wraps for reality TV shows in their home countries but, in November, Germany’s winner was announced as 25 year old Peter Pyzera from Gladbeck – followed by the 29 year old USA winner, Steven Doherty from Plainfield, Illinois, who’d been racing under the name “Dan Mitchell” to get his licences!
The four represent the finest of over 1.3 million gamers and are all now at Silverstone for a month of hard training ahead of the Dubai 24hr on January 10th 2013.
