First mentioned at GT5‘s Madrid launch party, the next round of the European GT Academy has been officially announced! The online time trials kick off Friday, March 4 and will continue through Sunday, April 17th. Players from 10 different countries, grouped by “territories”, will be eligible to participate:
- UK & Ireland
- France & Switzerland
- Germany & Austria
- Spain & Portugal
- Italy (starting March 18)
The top 20 drivers from each territory will move on to their own regional finals. Only the top two drivers at each final will move on to the final stage: “Race Camp”, which once again will be held at Silverstone. The winner from Race Camp will then compete in the next Dubai 24 Hour International race, to be held January 2012.
Along with the winner of this year’s GT Academy USA and previous EU winners Lucas Ordonez and Jordan Tresson, Nissan may be able – for the first time – to field an entire team of GT Academy drivers for the race! Stay tuned for more details.
