197w ago - Senior Product Marketing Manager Stephanie Yoshimoto has announced today news of new GT5 PS3 goodies and confirmed that GT Academy registration starts today for fans!

To quote: Lots of exciting news in the Gran Turismo world today. First, starting today, you can now register for GT Academy, the ultimate chance to become a real professional race car driver using Gran Turismo 5, now available exclusively on the PlayStation 3.

In case you hadn't heard about this exciting competition, we're not talking about a weekend racing school here. The GT Academy winner will ultimately go on to train with elite race car drivers in actual Nissan vehicles and race as part of a professional team...the ultimate dream.

The actual GT Academy competition, in collaboration with Nissan North America, will start in the US on December 20 and will continue through January 23.

In the case that you just want to have some fun playing Gran Turismo 5 online and don't think you'll win GT Academy, all participants will earn free GT digital content just for playing. But if you do have some serious GT skills, you have a chance to win some cool GT prizing, including [Register or Login to view links], Playseat racing rigs, GT5 posters, and more.

Be sure to register for [Register or Login to view links] on the official Gran Turismo web site! For more information on GT Academy, check out the [Register or Login to view links].

You can also join the GT community by following GT Academy on [Register or Login to view links], and get the latest news and updates on the competition.

In addition to GT Academy, we're unveiling a new Gran Turismo 5 trailer here on the PlayStation.Blog that showcases all of the many features of the game since there's so much to show off, including, 1,000+ jaw dropping cars (plus select NASCAR cars and karts), an all-new Course Maker, dynamic weather system, an online racing community and more.





Thank you to those of you who have enjoyed GT5 and also given feedback to us on the game. We definitely appreciate the comments. [Register or Login to view links] will be releasing a patch soon which will include improvements to damage.

Look forward to seeing you all in GT Academy come December 20!

So this is just for US users?? Is that true?

Here in europe you cannot register anywhere. On the GT site it shows the academy of 2010 not 2011. That would be bad Joke Polyphony.

This is my favorate line in the GT Academy clause~ You will become a "Selected Liscense Holder" as long as you dont eff it up first, but...

3.4 There is no guarantee that the Selected License Holder will race in the 24 hour race. This is a matter which will ultimately be decided by the motor racing team and is at their sole and absolute discretion.
