Whilst the Gran Turismo Academy 2011 officially hasn’t kicked off yet (it starts on the 4th) Sony have issued a few sites with media access to the event, which started yesterday, and we’ve had a quick look.
As you’ll see from the shots, this first round is set on a generated course in the Eifel region, so expect lots of hills and bends but not a huge amount of personality. The German backdrop is a lush, green expanse of grass and trees but it’s nothing you’ve not already seen before if you’ve tried to create your own course.
The car? A Nissan Fairlady Z, perfect for kicking that back end out around those corners. We’ve included a few shots of the map, the car set-up and the menus for those that like this sort of thing.
Bear in mind that details could change between this media version and the public version on Friday.
