Can't wait, I'm glad they are finally bringing GT Academy to the US.

See you guys on the leaderboard.

This is so awesome. I'm kind of annoyed how they broke it down though. here is the rules:

"Contest Regions. Regions are as follows:
GT Academy West:
Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.

GT Academy Southeast:
Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas

GT Academy Midwest:
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Wisconsin

GT Academy Northeast:
Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, DC, West Virginia"

128 top contestants will be taken from each region after the 1st round. Not to be a cry baby and maybe it's kind of broken down by population but I'm in Colorado and there are 18 states!! california is the biggest tuning/racing/street scene in the nation and has a MASSIVE population. This breakdwn really lowers anyone's chances who is in the west.

The midwest only has 9 states! We have double. Surely Kansas, Idaho and Colorado could have been moved into the midwest GT academy. I digress, oh well... :-/

This is why it's the real and only definite simulator.
