U.S. GT Academy Begins Today, Round 1 Event Details

Gran Turismo 5GT Academy 22 December 20, 2010 by

The first US-exclusive GT Academy competition officially kicks off today! Enabled by the latest Gran Turismo 5 v1.05 update, the Academy time trials have now appeared (sporadically) in the game’s new “Online Events” section. Round 1, which runs from today until January 23, will consist of three different time trial events, with three different cars on three different tracks:

  • Tsukuba Circuit – Nissan Fairlady Z (Z34) ’08
  • Rome (Reverse) – Nissan Skyline Coupe 370GT SP ’07
  • Cape Ring – Nissan 370Z Tuned Car (GT Academy Version)

Keep in mind that you must formally register your PSN account to participate and receive all of the weekly prizes to be awarded throughout the duration of Round 1 (check the official FAQ and competition rules for all the details). I have also just opened GTPlanet’s dedicated U.S. GT Academy 2011 Forums so you can chat with other competitors, learn tips and techniques, and find out more about who you’re up against. Good luck, everyone!
