Preregistration for the live events is not required and registration will be taken on the day. A total of 20 competitors will gain entry to the GT Academy Australian Finals from the live qualifying events.

Australian Finals

The Australian Finals will be held at Warner Brother Movie World on the Gold Coast from September 10th -11th. The Australian Finals will test a combination of Gran Turismo Sport play, driving in Nissan sports cars, fitness and media skills. The national competition will then give six lucky winners the opportunity to travel to the famous Silverstone circuit in the UK to compete for Australia at the GT Academy International Race Camp.


Race Camp

From the Australian Finals, the action moves onto the legendary Race Camp in Silverstone UK, where the competitors are put through their paces on track in Nissan sports cars under the watchful eyes of high profile judges and mentors. The winner from Race Camp will be invited to take part in the intensive Nissan Driver Development Program (NDDP), where they could qualify for an international race licence and race for Nissan professionally as an elite NISMO Athlete - following in the footsteps of the 2015 GT Academy International winner, Australian Matt Simmons.
