Nissan is looking again for the new generation super fast PlayStation gamers. A new race competition has been started for this, in which thousands of gamers get the chance to take part in an official FIA championship online.
Approved by the FIA
The GT Sports Championship is the first online racing race approved by the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). This step comes 10 years after the start of the Nissan PlayStation GT Academy, where gamers got the chance to grow into racing drivers of a Nissan competition car on a professional level.
In this new PlayStation competition, the very best gamers racing with a Nissan in the Gran Turismo Manufacturers Series Championship (part of Gran Turismo Sport) win a visit to the NISMO Festival at the Fuji International Speedway in Japan.
Europe’s fastest Nissan racer in the Gran Turismo Manufacturers Series Championship wins the trip to Japan. The winners of North and South America and Asia also win this trip. There they also play the global finals and they are each assigned a Nissan / GT Academy coach who guides them.
All Gran Turismo gamers who choose a Nissan in the FIA Manufacturers Series also automatically participate in the Nissan GT Sports Cup. The twelve best riders of June, July and August are invited to visit the final race of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup which will be held in Barcelona in September. In addition, the best driver of each month wins a course at the Nissan Training Camp on the Silverstone circuit. There they learn the intricacies of racing Nissan instructors.
The total of 36 top gamers together with twelve additional candidates – selected during the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup final – are participating in the European PlayStation GT Sports final.
