    This'll be my first serious go at GT Academy even though I'm ineligible, I'm either going to have a very fun or very sobering experience :lol:

    Do the first three rounds count towards anything? Or is it just the final round thats used to decide if you make it to the regional final? Should we try to get good times in all four or only focus on the last one?

    What's the difference between GTA Oz and GTA for everyone? Or does it just mean new countries that have a GTA "division" qualify for the final?

    There is no difference, the top few Australians in the Overall GTA table make it to the Australian National Final.

    Okay, I thought it was a big deal that this was Australia's own GT Academy and whoever wins gets a drive automatically. No prob.

    5pm AEST on tuesday im pretty sure

    Im hoping the ruling on cams licences, allows for officiating ones, instead of ruling them all out

    Is the first round launch 21/4 for us? Or does it all start at a universal time for all regions so nobody gets a head start?

    Either way it's almost here! :D

    Starting date/time is international, that is, universal. Which would be a shame for those in an early time zone as it'll be while they're asleep :p

    all you need to do is have the latest update for the game and go to the gt academy section on the main menu

    Hi guys. I need a cams licence to enter a skidpan/figure 8 drift day, that would still allow me to enter GT Academy right? As it is not a national competitive motorsport

    it's only a circuit race Licence or higher which deems you ineligible. An L2S or such is fine.

    You should do fine, if WRS results are anything to go by. Ineligible through age, or racing license?

    A couple reasons, mainly that I won't have a full road license for another 18 months or so :(

    Yep I don't know how they were able to compete but they exposed a loophole somewhere which I'd expect they'll be paying extra attention to this year.

    Yeah I find it unfair that Vic drivers have to stay on Probationary for 4 years as oppose to other states.
