Mumbai leads in Nissan Playstation GT Academy

In the hunt for motor racing talent in India, Nissan PlayStation GT Academy has witnessed promising racing aspirants in both Delhi and Mumbai, with the latter topping the leaderboard thus far. The internationally acclaimed driver discovery programme will complete the qualifying rounds in Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai by June 2014 before finalising the quickest 14 lap times that emerge from all five cities in contention.

Launched in India, in February, this year, Nissan PlayStation GT Academy has attracted many entries in less than two months. Over 2,000 aspiring racers have participated in GT Academy’s qualifying rounds conducted at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, and in shopping malls in Delhi (NCR) and Mumbai. The most recent qualifying round was held in Mumbai and below is the updated leaderboard post this round, until the Hyderabad round on April 20, 2014.

“We are delighted to have launched GT Academy in India. The programme is reinforcing the commitment of growing the Nissan brand in India. GT Academy really proves that Nissan stands for innovation and excitement for everyone,” said Kenichiro Yomura, president, Nissan India.

“The partnership with Nissan allows us to offer a combination of the virtual and real life experience of racing one’s dream car on one of the world’s most coveted circuits. The programme will test the racing acumen of enthusiasts on PlayStation GT6 racing simulators that focus on a high-end simulated driving experience. At Delhi and Mumbai, we have already witnessed a furor of excitement amongst gamers and racers and I'm sure in Hyderabad, it’s going to go to the next level. We expect this to be a tough challenge,” said Atindriya Bose, country head,PlayStation India.
