Released for free download through GTTV, a new 30 minute documentary details the exploits of Polyphony Digital studio head Kazunori Yamauchi as he competed in his second Nürburgring 24 Hour race in 2011:

In the Gran Turismo TV section of Gran Turismo 5, a free program “Racing at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring 2011” has been released.

The ‘Nürburgring 24 hour race’ is the world’s largest touring car event. Kazunori Yamauchi has returned to this extreme race, driven on the combined Grand Prix course and Nordschleife of the Nürburgring.

This year he is participating from a private team, Schulze Motorsports. The car is the R35 GT-R, which is challenging the Nürburgring 24 hour race for the first time since its release. See the close battle against the works teams of Volkswagen in the SP8T class, and the first class victory of the Nissan GT-R attained by Schulze Motorsports and Kazunori Yamauchi.

Combining aerial shots as well as exciting in-car cameras, this program covers the 24 hours of Nürburgring driven by Kazunori Yamauchi.

The documentary is available in two parts and includes footage of testing and qualifying alongside spectacular race action, interviews with various team heads including Mario Thiessen (BMW), Olaf Manthey (Manthey Racing) and Wolfgang Ulrich (Audi) and in-car footage of all of the Schulze Motorsports drivers over the gruelling 24 hour race.
