Hello everyone, its Penrose Tackie here Gran Turismo, European Brand Manager.



Following the groundbreaking success of the GT Academy last year and as part of our activities around the forthcoming launch of Gran Turismo 5, I am delighted to officially unveil GT Academy 2010.



On 17th December exclusively via the PlayStation store, we will be launching the GT Academy 2010 Time Trial. The time trial will be the only way into this year’s Academy, and if you’ve got what it takes it could be the start of a life-changing journey.



Last year the GT Academy programme unearthed a real driving talent in the form of Lucas Ordonez from Spain, who after winning the GT Academy went on to drive for the Nissan PlayStation race team and take an astonishing second place in the GT4 Championship – all in his first season!
This time around the Academy is even bigger and better, and competition is bound to be pretty fierce – perhaps best of all though for Gran Turismo fans, it will be the first opportunity to get a hands-on taster as to what Yamauchi-san and his Polyphony team have been carefully crafting and polishing at their Tokyo base.



Qualify in the top twenty within your country and you will be invited to a national final event, where you will pit your wits against the best Gran Turismo drivers in the country. If you make it from there only then will you join the elite 20 that will be taken into the GT Academy 2010.








Only the two best drivers will make it out of this 5 day test of nerve and skill. From there will follow an intensive driver training schedule from which we will select our one GT Academy ace.
The time trial features the stunning Nissan 370Z in two guises. Firstly a blisteringly fast, race-tuned monster and secondly an only slightly less fearsome non-tuned version.


The 370Z is the most recent of the new range of cars wearing the famous ‘Z’ brand revived by Japanese manufacturer Nissan. The car has been specially chosen for its challenging but hugely entertaining rear-wheel drive dynamics and the time trial should allow GT novices and veterans alike to get a real idea of what its like to get to grips with this sensational car





To enter the Academy racers will have to post their best overall leaderboard times negotiating a specially created section of a new Gran Turismo 5 circuit. This best time will be a composite of two separate runs – one with the tuned vehicle and the other with the non-tuned version.

You will have the opportunity to keep refining your overall best time from the launch of the demo right up until the close of this time trial stage at 24.00 CET on 24th January 2010.
To give a flavour of what the GT Academy is all about, check out this trailer.
The GT Academy will run in the following countries:
  • UK
  • Ireland
  • France
  • Switzerland
  • Italy
  • Germany
  • Austria
  • Denmark
  • Norway
  • Finland
  • Sweden
  • Spain
  • Portugal
  • Netherlands
  • Belgium
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
However gamers in countries not mentioned on the list need not fear as there will be a special Gran Turismo 5 Time Trial Challenge for them to get to grips with it, too.
If you want to keep up to date with what’s happening with GT5 and the GT Academy 2010 keep checking back on the PlayStation.Blog and also check out the following links.

Confusion over. The GT Academy 2010 Time Trial track releasing on December 17 is definitely GT5 code. This is your first chance to get a proper play of what will almost certainly be the biggest racing game of 2010.

“Yes, it’s GT5 code,” a PR rep just told us by email.

The taster will be a single track for the 2010 GT Academy competition.

Speculation mounted following the announcement of the demo’s release that it would simply be a new track in the Prologue engine: now you know.

So yeah. Get pumped. There’s no date on the game outside Japan as yet.

Actually if I read well, there might be one some time in the future, but it doesn't look like it will be tied to GT Academy.

So, now that the demo's coming on December 17th, looks like we'll all have to wait for the imminent 2010 release date.

Any news if the save data from Prologue can be transfered to the final product, when it comes out?

Yes, you will be able to transfer your cars from GT5 Prologue and Gran Turismo on PSP over to GT5.

Iím a huge NASCAR fan, and Iím curious how the NASCAR part of the game is coming. Specifically what NASCAR tracks are going to be in the game. Iím hoping Watkinís Glen, Sanoma, Pheonix, Richmond, Bristol, Martinsville, Pocono, Indy, Atlanta and Darlington.

AlsoÖ.. any official word on rain? Aside from NASCAR, rain is actually my most wanted feature. Itís pretty much just eye candy on top of the wet track physics, but thatís eye candy I REALLY want.

You ask some great questions. I wonít be able to answer them just yet, but look forward more information to come in the near future.

I refused to purchase or even rent Prologue, so I'm looking forward to the GT5 demo. Plus, I'm sure they'd update the gameplay a bit from prologue.

Will the time trial have a way of checking your IP? Or will I be able to log in with EuroToefer, and be able to download/play it?
I don't make monkeys, I just train 'em.
If you're interested, there might be a Donkey Kong kill screen in a couple minutes.
