GT Academy USA’s Top 16 Finalists Progress to Silverstone

GT Academy 19 March 24, 2011 by

The top 16 drivers among the 50,000 participants in GT Academy USA 2011 have now earned their place in the Silverstone boot camp! The last few rounds of heated competition went down in Orlando on Wednesday, and GTPlanet correspondent grafpt was on hand for all the action. Here’s the finalists, grouped by region:

  • Dr_3Wide_Skills (Christopher Roberts) – Northeast
  • FixByWire (Andre Gomes) – Northeast
  • Z06Fun (Christopher Morton) – Northeast
  • Appalachian_Kris (Kris Norris) – Northeast
  • Gar529 (Gregory Russell) – Northeast
  • BlindSideFive0 (Nick Fontana) – Northeast
  • GTZf_CudaMan (Bryan Heitkotter) – West
  • R1600Turbo (Jason Miller) – West
  • Doctor_ILL (Phillip Arscott) – West
  • GTP_TheCheef (Sean Johnston) – West
  • SpecMiata-JSW (John Wilding) – Southeast
  • ZeroLM (Rich Pratt) – Southeast
  • Glenn_McGee (Glenn McGee Howle) – Southeast
  • SebaF1 (Jose Cedeno) – Southeast
  • ConMan_Skills (Connor Clifford) – Midwest
  • Choate51 (Steve Driscoll) – Midwest

As you can see, each region is represented in the top 16 – though the Northeast ultimately came out on top with six of the eight finalists from the area moving forward. The West and Southeast regions both have four drivers moving forward, along with two from the Midwest.

A huge congratulations goes out to everyone involved! This is an outstanding accomplishment, and I’m very proud to say nearly all of the competitors call the GTPlanet community home. Join the festivities in our GT Academy USA forum, and stay tuned for more coverage on the next round of the competition…
