The final online qualification round of GT Academy 2014 kicks off today, as the time trial which will be used to determine who moves on to regional finals around the world.

It brings with it a new car in GT6, the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 Team RJN ’13 in its popular YouTube livery, to be run in a hot lap around the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.

The qualification round officially ends on June 16, 2014, at 06:59 GMT/UTC (convert to your local time here), although the round is shorter in Germany, where it ends on June 9th.

Online rankings are available here and, for the first time in the competition, can be filtered to show the top 250 players in each participating country.

As always, GTPlanet’s GT Academy forums will be an important hub of activity, as a place where top contenders from each region come to discuss the competition and share tips and techniques for lowering lap times.

Good luck to all GTPlanet members! This could be you next year:
