At each Live Event, you will be invited to take part in a virtual race on Gran Turismo 6 using Nissan gaming pods. You will run five (5) laps or five minutes (whichever comes first) on the Silverstone Circuit track using a Nissan GT-R. Your fastest lap time will then be recorded for reference. The twenty (20) qualifying players who achieve the best performances during the Live Events will be invited to compete at the National Finals which will be held at the Clark International Speedway or Subic Bay International Airport. From there, all National Finals Winners from Philippines, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia and India will participate in the GT Academy Race Camp at Silverstone England, UK. Give your all and be included in the first Filipino winners who will go head to head with the best Gran Turismo drivers of Asia and will get a chance to race in the real world. You will also be given an economy class flight from Manila to London and vice versa, assistance and cost of getting the appropriate visa to UK, transfers to and from the Race Camp start and end locations to and from the relevant airport, train or coach station, on site accommodation at the Race Camp, plus meals and refreshments during the Race Camp Event.
