Nic Hamman, a Wisconsin native and lifelong racing enthusiast, has won the fourth season of Nissan GT Academy, a program that takes the best virtual Gran Turismo gamers and turns them into real racecar drivers.
Hamman secured his crown in a group of 11 racers on the Silverstone circuit in England, driving a Nissan 370Z on the road course. Far from the world of PlayStation, these racers faced entirely real conditions.
“The whole thing has been an awesome experience for me,” Hamman told Nissan. “I can’t thank everyone at Nissan, Sony PlayStation and Silverstone enough for giving me this opportunity and believing in me.”
It’s programs like Nissan GT Academy that make Nissan such an interactive and forward-thinking company. That attitude is clearly reflected in Nissan’s vehicles, which are always intuitive, innovative, and efficient.
