Kazunori Yamauchi is the father of the Gran Turismo Series, but he’s also an accomplished racing driver. In the past 24 hours, he’s been competing in the prestigious Nurburgring 24h endurance race as part of Team GT Academy, which also included Tobias Schulze, Yasukichi Yamamoto and the first GT Academy winner Lucas Ordoñez.

The team achieved a class victory, coming in 30th overall, improving Yamauchi's previous results. (Culture, Gran Turismo 5, Kazunori Yamauchi, PS3)

Lol GT5's Nurburgring is near perfect, and looks awesome. Someone obviously never played the game.

Champaign for everyone.
So this is a direct slap in the face to all those Porche fanboys (Not on here mind you) who called the last victory beginners luck. Sniff The Nissan GTR R35's exhaust and choke.

So i guess we'll be getting this GTR as dlc as well.

We already did didn't we? The Nissan GT-R N24 Schulze Motor Sports '11...althought this would be '12 model...which wouldn't be much point to have to almost identical cars, would there?
Abriael  +   1288d ago
It's actually a quite different car, and the livery is very different.

The Schulze GT-R we got for free in an update. The GT Academy GT-R we got for getting gold on a Seasonal Event. I'm thinking this one will be free in the next six months, or it'll be in the next game.

Not to be outdone, the turn 10 crew has just posted a similar victory on their web page. They apparently won two gold medals at the Redmond tri-county bumper car and go cart competitions held at the local green-acres minigolf course....
