August 16th, 2012 by Jordan

The U.S. GT Academy finals were a big success, live-streamed for the first time in the Academy’s history. In case you missed it, take a look at these video recaps to see what was going on behind the live cameras at the event.

Formula Drift Champion Daijiro Yoshihara was also on hand for the U.S. finals to produce the latest episode for his reality/documentary web series, “Behind the Smoke”, produced by GTChannel, the popular online car video network created by Best Motoring’s Taro Koki.

Congratulations, once again, to everyone advancing in the competition!

      All I can say is at least you weren’t #33/34. Awesome job nonetheless.

    It would be cool to see formula d cars in GT6. Or more D1gp cars.

      Now THAT is an achievement. Congrats, your shoes should be proud. I didn’t get any part of me or my clothing in, so already you have more screen time in GTP than me.
