Wolfgang Reip Clinches European GT Academy Title
This year’s edition of Nissan & Gran Turismo’s GT Academy has finished at Silverstone yesterday and Belgium’s Wolfgang Reip has edged out the competition.
This year’s six GT Academy finalists got to complete the last stage of their competition in front of a major audience as the final race aboard Nissan 370Zs was held at Silverstone during the World Endurance Championship weekend.
Wolfgang edged out Andrea Cosaro , Rolf Ueltschi, Sebastien Bertrand, Des Foley and Hugo Gonçalves in the race as the jury came to the logical conclusion to name him the winner of this year’s event.
The presence of the WEC allowed the finalists to see where the GT Academy can take you as former GT Academy winner Jordan Tresson raced in the World Championship race aboard a Oreca 03 LMP2 Le Mans Prototype. Hopefully, Wolfgang Reib’s future will be as bright as yet another virtual racer makes the transition to the real racing world.
