Well that's disappointing. All four 2013 winners of Playstation's GT Academy have been denied entry into this year's British GT Championship on the grounds that they're “too fast” in a sport where going fast is the name of the game. Ironic isn't it?
You see, back in 2012, GT Academy winner Jann Mardenborough entered the British GT Championship alongside Alex Buncombe in the national Pro-Am category. As the “amateur,” Mardenborough was expected to be slower of the pair, but proved otherwise. The two pushed their Team RJN Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 that they almost won the championship.
