GT Academy Winners At Dubai 24hrs

Back in September, Spaniard Lucas Ordoñez and German Lars Schlommer were announced as winners of Nissan’s and Sony’s GT Academy. What started as a simple online time-trial tournament turned into real-life competition as the quickest drivers had the chance to prove themselves at Silverstone, showing they´re not just quick on virtual soil.

The two winners received a seat in a Nissan 350Z race- car and had the chance to compete in the Dubai 24 Hour race earlier this month, partnered by Rob Barff, Johnny Herbert and Alex Buncombe. The Pro-Am driver combination completed 451 laps, finishing 9th in class.

More information can be found over at GTPlanet and the team’s official blog which also features a lot of photos and videos from the race.
