Nissan and Sony Confirm Second Season of Nissan GT Academy

by Shane McGlaun

We talked briefly about the last season of the Nissan GT Academy. This is a TV show where after three months of online competition 32 Gran Turismo online racers got the chance to fight it out at Comic-Con for the chance to drive a real race car for Nissan. Sony and Nissan have confirmed the series will be back for a second season starting Thursday, November 1st at 11:30 PM Eastern time on Spike TV.

It sounds like the format will be much the same as last year with online competitions in Gran Turismo in which the top racers get to go to England to compete in a number of activities including real track driving. It sounds like Sony and Nissan have been successful so far in picking people who can both play video games and drive well.

Season one winner Lucas Ordonez even won the P2 Class at the 24 hours of Le Mans 2011 in a Nissan prototype car. Four other GT Academy winners nailed a class victory in January after 24 Hours of Dubai driving a Nissan 370Z. This season’s episodes will be available online a week after they air on Spike TV.
