The GT Academy program, which attempts to invite Gran Turismo players into real-life motorsport, used the GT6 demo as a platform. It is expected that future GT Academy events will take place in the new game.
The players who have competed in the GT Academy program will be given the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 N24 Schulze Motorsport '13 as a reward.
