The brakes have barely cooled down on the GT Academy Dubai 24hr team‘s Nissan 370Z, but it seems GT Academy 2012 may be just round the corner at least for the Europeans.
An article reporting on the impending event was spotted in the Dutch language magazine "AutoNews" and it will apparently be following a familiar format. Entrants from 12 European countries will be eligible to take part - not all of the countries are specifically named, but Belgium, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands are included.
Initially there will be a time trial to be launched in March, with the top 20 eligible players from each country being invited to a local national finals – the article names Spa-Francorchamps as one finals venue. 20 qualifiers in total will then be invited to attend a 6 day long final selection process, once again being held at Silverstone, with the winner being given the ultimate prize of a seat in the 2013 Dubai 24hr race.
With the time trial event being at least a full month away, there’s plenty of time to get some practice in and become the next Gamer-to-Racer in Sony/Nissan’s already successful, world-champion breeding GT Academy program!
