Catching Up with U.S. GT Academy Winner Bryan Heitkotter

August 3rd, 2011 by Jordan G.

Since Bryan Heitkotter took home victory at the U.S. GT Academy finals, Sony America and Nissan’s PR haven’t done a lot to promote Bryan’s accomplishments (though, in fairness, they may be waiting for the finals to air on Speed TV), despite some very impressive on-track results.

That said, they have finally published an interesting video which follows Bryan from Silverstone down to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where he meets up with Lucas Ordoñez and the Signatech Nissan team before they scored their incredible second-in-class finish.

Speed TV is rumored to begin airing the competition mid-September, so hopefully we’ll be seeing more of Bryan in the not-too-distant future.

    They really need to make a Canadian Academy! Should have an NA Academy instead of just American. Once a Canadian one is made, you will see flocks of Canadian drivers making it to Le Mans.

      Just as long as they don’t poop all over the lawn like the flocks of Canadian geese. ;P
