GTPlanet is very excited to team up with Nissan to co-host a live Twitter question & answer session with Lucas Ordonez, the real-world racing star that’s emerged from the first GT Academy competition! As you know, Lucas and his Signatech Nissan team just finished second-in-class at the 12 Hours of Sebring, the first race in the 2011 International Le Mans Cup calendar. They’ll be participating in all the events around the world this year, including the ultimate endurance race – the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The Q&A session starts at 4:30PM EST. To submit your question, just send it in a tweet including the #GTAcademy hashtag. Nissan is giving away 6 copies of Gran Turismo 5, so you’ve got no reason not to ask something. There’s a special bonus for GTPlanet users as well: submit your question in the comment section below, and you could win an officially licensed GT Academy hat signed by Lucas himself! (Take note, however, Nissan can only ship the prize within the United States.)
UPDATE: The interview is now over – I’ll announce the winner of the signed hat shortly!
