GT Academy 2015 Round 3 Opens: Greaves Motorsport LMP2 at Spa!

GT Academy 86 May 19, 2015 by

GT_Academy_2015_R3_Greaves-Spa (7)GT Academy winds it up another notch today as the third round goes live and it’s a level playing field as there’s a new car in the mix.

This fortnight, gamers get the chance to take on an LMP2 car for the first time in Gran Turismo – and not just any LMP2, but the Greaves Motorsport Zytek-Nissan car as used by Jann Mardenborough, Lucas Ordoñez and Michael Krumm to take a podium at the 2013 24 Heures du Mans.

Academy hopefuls won’t be tackling Le Mans, however. For this round the location is the fearsome Spa-Francorchamps circuit, nestled in Belgium’s Eifel forest and forebodingly an event in which the Greaves car – albeit the #41 – crashed out of qualifying.

Round 3: Event Details

Availability: 19/5/2015 07:00 UTC – 16/6/2015 06:59 UTC
Prizes:
Gold (2’13.000) 700,000 Cr.
Silver (2’16.000) 330,000 Cr.
Bronze (2’25.000) 120,000 Cr.

You’ll need to score a Bronze or faster time to qualify for the next round, but any completed lap of any kind will award you the car in Gran Turismo 6 – so watch out for those cones which will instantly disqualify you!
