Playing Gran Turismo games is touted by its makers as the closest you can come to actually driving the real cars. And the GT Academy aims to back that boast up, by plucking the best Gran Turismo drivers and training them to get behind the wheel of actual racing cars and try not to kill themselves or anyone else. Exciting!
You’ll be able to get in on the action yourself by downloading the Gran Turismo 6 demo for PlayStation 3 this coming Tuesday, July 3. From that day through July 28, 3:59 p.m. PST, players will have the chance to qualify for the National Finals, at which point they’ll compete against their country’s best racers to be named their nation’s champ.
And for the rest of us who just want to play a fun racing game—hey! A Gran Turismo 6 demo is coming to the PS3 next week. That’s cool!
