'Gran Turismo 5': Win a Spot in a Real Race


Posted May 6, 2008 - By bleahy

Think you're a great virtual driver in Gran Turismo? Put it to the test and you could win a spot in a real race.

Sony and Nissan will be holding an online tournament (Europe only) to find the best fake driver. The event will run 8 months and while details are currently scarce, the winner will get 4 months of real race training before they get to race in real life.

The GT Academy contest features the Nissan 350Z and the winner gets to drive one in a real 24-hour endurance race later this year in Dubai.

They should be warned, however, as real life does accurately model vehicle and bodily damage. Here's the first 15 minutes of GT5: Prologue.
