GT Academy USA Round 2 Kicks off At Indy, Toscana

GT Academy 26 January 31, 2011 by

The second round of GT Academy USA kicked off Monday, this time with two car/course combos: the Indianapolis Road Course in a GT-R V-Spec II Nür (R34) and a Toscana Tarmac circuit in the XANAVI NISMO Z Super GT race car.

SCEA isn’t making things any easier on participants, forcing “Comfort Medium” tires on the GT-R at Indy – resulting in severe understeer around the flat circuit. Indy is a somewhat unexpected choice, considering it was already used in last year’s GT5 Time Trial Demo. As pointed out by user Dapper, it actually all seems to a bit backwards: participants are using a road car on a race track, and a race car on a road circuit.

Regardless, good luck to all participants and GTPlanet members! Round 2 ends at midnight EST on February 6th. Head on over to our GT Academy forum to chat with other competitors, or follow along with the action here on the official leaderboards.
