Hip-hop star Snoop Dogg (or “Snoop Lion”, as he now prefers to be called) will be headlining at the 2012 Gran Turismo Awards, to be held at the Palm Resort’s Rain Nightclub in Las Vegas, this Thursday, November 1st at 9:30pm.
Kazunori Yamauchi will also be announcing the “Best in Show” at the event, among the finalists in the five categories, Best Truck or SUV, Best Hot Rod, Best Domestic Automobile, Best European Import and Best Asian Import.
The overall winner, of course, will be playable in a future Gran Turismo title.
If you or someone you know is exhibiting a car at SEMA, there is still time to submit your eligible vehicle for the competition until October 31, 2012.
“Gran Turismo is the most real-deal driving game I have ever experienced,” said Snoop Lion. “I have been a PlayStation fan for years, and am excited to help make this 10th year celebration for the Gran Turismo Awards into an ‘off the hook’ affair.”
GTPlanet will be reporting live from the event, so stay tuned for more coverage from SEMA throughout the week!
