Are You the “Ultimate” Gran Turismo Fan?


Sony is out to find the “ultimate” Gran Turismo fan with their latest contest, and two winners will be walking away with the driving suit, helmet, and gloves worn by Rhys Millen and Tanner Foust in the GT PSP Laguna Seca television commercial. All you’ve got to do is submit a 2 minute video, a 2 page essay, or slide show presentation explaining why you are the “ultimate fan”. Entries will be judged by a panel of “video game industry professionals”, who will score each submission based on the following criteria: 60% for showing that you’re the ultimate fan, 20% for showing that you’re the ultimate car/racing fan, and another 20% for showing off a little bit of creativity.

Even if you don’t pick up the racing suits and helmets, you could still win a GT PSP Entertainment Pack or signed poster. You will, however, need to be a legal resident of the United States in order to participate – see here for all the rules and regulations (the contest ends this Sunday, November 22, 2009, at 11:59 PM PST). Good luck to everyone!

    Why not just look up the GT fan sites and give out the kechains you used to get for 6th place……I just hope the winner is from GTplanet and can represent well. Good luck to those who enter and be safe!

    If GT4 had had a bug fix release, I /might/ consider GT worthy of such adulation. An extremely slim shot at a firesuit and helmet or a PSP is nowhere near enough to get me to give up my personal info for the priveledge of prostituting myself for Sony’s benefit. Ooh wow a bunch of crap I have no need for!! PLEASE SIGN ME UP NOW, REALLY!!!

    When I first read this, I actually thought I had a chance. But then I quickly had my hopes and dreams crushed when I remembered that outside of the first 4 games and GT5 Prologue, I have no other GT themed memorabilia. So I’m out.

    Wait a second…the Europeans get to become real racing drivers and we get stuck with a helmet and a suit. How does that even equal out? Anyways, at least its good to see that marketing is continuing to build up for GT5.

    I guess they could just look at the “Build your own cockpit” page and take a winner out of that crowd! That is the real fans! I too am a big fan of Gran Turismo but when it comes to big setups that costs a lot and takes a lot of space I choose the space. May the worst living room win!
