Indian arm of Nissan GT academy launched

Nissan India has launched the Indian arm of its Nissan GT academy. It aims to create a race driver from an ordinary person without the enormous cost of the regular route to becoming a race driver. The contest is open to anyone over the age of 18, one can enter the contest and well as choose the finalists. 

The Nissan PlayStation GT Academy is in its sixth year and has been hugely popular and successful in Europe, Russia, the USA, the Middle East and South Africa. The Japanese automaker sees huge potential for racing in India and has thus launched the academy here.  

The GT Academy’s Indian qualifying rounds will begin with ‘Live Events’ in five select Indian cities and at a later stage will also include an online qualifying round that will be hosted on the PlayStation Network (PSN) via the Gran Turismo 6 game. 

In total 14 contestants will be selected to attend a camp in Delhi which will be headed by Karun Chandok. After passing all the requirments of the Indian leg, six persons will be chosen to go participate in the international camp at Silverstone where they will get to drive a race-prepped 370Zs as well the mighty GT-R sports car.    

Commenting on the launch of the academy, Matthew De La Haye, Nissan’s Vice President Communications, Africa, Middle East, India and Europe said, “We’re delighted to launch GT Academy in India; bringing the programme here reinforces our commitment to growing the Nissan brand and developing relationships with both existing and potential customers. GT Academy really proves that Nissan stands for innovation and excitement for everyone.” Nissan will host the inaugural round of the competition on February 6 at the Delhi Auto Expo in greater Noida.
