The Nissan GT Academy is a reality competition show unlike any other. It turns gamers into professional racecar drivers by taking the very best in PlayStation®3’s Gran Turismo®6 and allowing them to compete in actual driving challenges. The winner then gets to race professionally for Nissan on some of the world’s most renown racetracks, and the Nissan GT Academy is ready to air its third season.
The third season of the Nissan GT Academy will air on Spike TV starting Monday, November 11 at 10:30pm ET. The season will consist of five 30-minute episodes and a one-hour season finale on December 16, in which Nissan will crown its winner.
“We are excited to announce the third season of the GT Academy show and to further our relationship with PlayStation and SPIKE TV after last year’s success,” said Jon Brancheau, vice president of Marketing for Nissan North America, in a press release.
At Nissan, performance and excitement is at the heart of our brand, and the third season will deliver both for our audience. We are confident the Season 3 winner will demonstrate speed, strength and soul: all qualities of a Nissan Motorsports Athlete that will translate into success on the track for Nissan.”
