Each year at SEMA in Las Vegas, Sony hosts the “Gran Turismo Awards” – a competition with one very important judge (Kazunori Yamauchi), who selects a car on display at the show for inclusion in a GT game.
The Awards have brought some interesting color and variety to car lists over the years, including Art Morrison’s 1960 Corvette and the late JR Rocha’s heavily-customized Infiniti G37, and it’s now time to add another car to GT‘s roster. If you’re presenting a car at SEMA 2011 (or know someone who is), fill out the official entry form and Kazunori will come calling. The winner will be revealed at the Awards party on November 3, 2011.
For the rest of us wondering when we’ll get to virtually thrash the eventual winner, Sony’s entry form offers some conflicting clues. The form’s main page claims the winner will be included in a “future edition of Gran Turismo“, while the official rules clearly state “the winner’s vehicle will be digitally recreated and will appear in Gran Turismo 5 for the PlayStation 3 system.” As usual, we’ll just have to wait and see.
Good luck to all entrants, and thanks to all of you who sent this in!
