- PS3 GT Academy Commercial Director Andy Reynolds
has shared details on a LIVE at Silverstone update today via PlayStation Blog.
To quote: From millions of virtual racers we are down to 18 putting it all on the line for real.
Our competitors raced hundreds of laps each on the GT Academy Time Trial to prove their speed, they beat all comers at the National Championships and now putting their nerves, sweat and skills to the limit at Silverstone.
From Ireland to New Zealand and from Finland to Italy our 18 competitors have a chance to move from virtual champion to professional racing driver.
In front of them lies a 5-day test of skill, physical fitness and pure speed in front of our legendary judges of Eddie Jordan, Johnny Herbert and Sabine Schmitz where only the very fastest will achieve their dream.
, GT Academy 2010 Judge, said:
"These next few days will be difficult, different and hard but the potential for the most rewarding prize ever. We are going to transform a guy from the virtual world and bring them to the reality of motor-sport. At Silverstone, they will work and race together but act for themselves. Its a chance they need to take with both hands."
One man has been more responsible for giving pure talent...
