The 2010 GT Awards are right around the corner, and Sony is taking applications from all SEMA attendees who want a shot at getting their car featured in Gran Turismo 5.
Kazunori Yamauchi himself will walk the show floor and personally inspects each entrant, choosing his favorite vehicle in five different categories: “Hot Rod”, “SUV”, “European”, “Domestic”, and “Asian”. These finalists are brought to the GT Awards party, where the winner will be announced and eventually included in a “future” GT game. This year, though, the official rules specifically state the winning car will be made available in Gran Turismo 5 (presumably via download), so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to give it a spin.
The awards have brought some interesting and unique cars to the series, including Art Morrison’s 1960 Corvette and GT4‘s 1964 Buick Special. Check out the video below to see what happened last year:
SEMA 2010 kicks off November 2, and the GT Awards will be held the evening of November 3. Good luck to all participants, and thanks to Alex for sending this in!
