Nissan GT Academey Reality Show Episode One [Video]

Nissan‘s GT Academy is the stuff of dreams. Of 54,000 virtual racers, the field has been whittled down to just 16, all of whom will then compete for a seat in a real race car, to take on the grueling 24 Hours of Dubai.

Honing their skills first racing in Gran Turismo on Playstation 3, the 16 contestants must now compete in a series of tests over a week at the Silverstone Racing Complex in the U.K., performing challenges and driving Nissan 370Zs and GT-Rs. And of course, the whole thing has been taped.

With the first episode already having aired on the Speed Network last week, in case you missed it, Nissan has provided the entire show on its YouTube channel.
