Two of the best Gran Turismo players out there were recruited by a racing academy and ended up winning an endurance race in Australia this weekend.

Wolfgang Reip and Florian Strauss are members of the Gran Turismo academy – set up by Sony, Polyphony Digital and Nissan to encourage GT players to hone their driving talents in real cars. The pair formed part of the winning team that won the Bathurst 12 Hour race in New South Wales on 8th February.

The third driver in the team, Katsumasa Chiyo, who was not a graduate of the Gran Turismo Academy, posted the best time of all the team members, and even lapped two cars on the penultimate lap. The three competitors drove an RJN Motorsport Nissan GTR-35.
