To prepare the contestants, Nissan GT Academy uses the mobile Nismo Lab to help them improve their in-car performance as well as their physical fitness.
Who ever said video gaming doesn't amount to anything? One of the most insane reality competition shows is back on Spike! On Season 3 of Nissan GT Academy, gamers get to take their virtual driving skills to the next level by competing for the ultimate prize — the chance to be a Pro Nissan Motorsports racer.
What if video gamers had the skills to get into a real car and make it as a pro race car driver? To find out, Nissan and Sony are teaming up for the third season in a row to give gamers of an exclusive PlayStation’s Gran Turismo 6 demo the chance to go from virtual to reality and win the dream job of millions. Last season, over 400,000 gamers from all walks of life entered the competition through the PlayStation Network, where 16 advanced to the world-famous Silverstone race track in the UK to compete. Season 3 will be just as exciting – top finalists will face off for the chance to demonstrate speed, strength and soul with challenges designed to test fitness, driving skills, reaction speeds, performance under pressure and more. There might even be a few surprises along the road to becoming Nissan’s 2013 Nismo Athlete and GT Academy Champion. Victory IS Anyone’s!
