Well, the rest of the world gets a chance at being a “real” race car driver if they’re at the top of the GTA leader board by January 10th. After downloading the special Time Trial software pack at the PlayStation store you must:
Qualify in the top twenty within your country and you will be invited to a national final event, where you will pit your wits against the best Gran Turismo drivers in the country. If you make it from there only then will you join the elite 20 that will be taken into the GT Academy 2010. Only the two best drivers will make it out of this 5 day test of nerve and skill. From there will follow an intensive driver training schedule from which we will select our one GT Academy ace.
This tuned Z is the spec all participants will compete in. What do we get? “A special Gran Turismo 5 Time Trial Challenge.”
