If you have a PlayStation gaming system and tend to have a lead foot on the gas pedal, you could have a chance of winning a trip to Japan to meet the developers of the “Gran Turismo” game at Polyphony Digital and attend the NISMO Festival at Fuji International Speedway. To win, you need to be one of the top Nissan racers in the FIA-certified Gran Turismo Manufacturers Series Championship, part of the latest Gran Turismo game. Another game racer will earn a spot by triumphing at the Nissan GT Sport Cup eracing competition in Europe.

“The level of competition is incredibly fierce,” Nissan’s global motorsport director, Michael Carcamo said. “And we’re now seeing that online racing is not only an alternative to the real thing. To be recognized as an official FIA Manufacturers Series Champion through GT Sport is an incredible opportunity, and we’re looking forward to having some of the best gamers in the world represent Nissan.”
