The GT Academy competition was created by Nissan and Playstation to find new GT racing drivers from virtual racers on Gran Turismo. Lucas Ordonez was the first winner in 2008, and now he’ll be part of a four man team for the Spa 24 Hours. He’ll drive a GT4-spec Nissan 370Z prepped by RJN Motorsport and sponsored by Polyphony Digital and Playstation.

The 25-year-old Spaniard has already driven in the Dubai 24 hours as his GT Academy prize, and then went on to partner Alex Buncombe to second place in the European GT4 Championship last year.
He’ll drive at Spa with Alex Bumcombe, brother Chris Bumcombe and Rob Barff.
