GT Academy Finalists Selected, Finals Dated

March 12, 2011

Sony and Polyphony just announced that the 32 finalists in the GT Academy competition have been selected and will be flown out to Orlando, Florida to compete for the opportunity to become a legit professional racer. The finalists will compete in live head-to-head racing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Disney World on March 22 and 23 to decide the winner. The cars used in the finals will consist only of Nissan cars, since they’re sponsoring it and all. Should be cool though, seeing 32 Nissan GT-Rs going at it for the glory of victory. Hopefully someone will stream the event, should be a treat for anyone out there who enjoys spectating racing games (like myself).
