GT AcademyMotorsports 71 April 4, 2012 by

Announced this morning via Twitter, Lucas Ordoñez will shortly find himself driving a Nissan GT-R at the punishing Nürburgring 24 Hour race.

The 2008 GT Academy winner has been paired with Gran Turismo series creator and Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi for potentially over 2,000 miles of all-condition racing on one of the toughest tracks in the world. The event marks Yamauchi’s third successive N24 race (with one class victory) while Ordoñez himself will be entering his fifth 24 hour race since his Academy win – with 2 class podium finishes in his four races so far.

The race weekend starts on May 15th with compulsory training while the race itself will start at 14.00GMT/UTC on May 19th.
