Six Aussie gamers competing in GT Academy International Race Camp
Six Australian gamers have been selected to represent Australia at the Nissan PlayStation® GT Academy International Race Camp in the United Kingdom on 7 – 12 August, 2015.
Matthew Simmons, Elliott Schutte, Nick Dalton, Corey Creed, Tyler Blackburn and Simon Feigl will fly to the famous Silverstone circuit in England next month to compete at the GT Academy International Race Camp and become a professional racing driver for Nissan. They will be joined by former V8 Supercars champion and two–time Bathurst 1000 winner Rick Kelly, who will again be the Australian judge and mentor.
The six gamers were the best of 20 finalists competing at the GT Academy Australian Final at Warner Bros. MovieWorld on the Gold Coast over the weekend.
Nissan and Sony Computer Entertainment Australia staged this year’s GT Academy Australian Final in this unique setting, with ‘last chance’ live events held at Movie World in the days leading in to the weekend, allowing ten gamers to qualify for the Australian Final and join the ten best competitors from online play on Gran Turismo®6 for PlayStation®3.
