Well when they said it's the true Racing simulator they weren't kidding. Graduates of the GT Academy will not be able to race in UK's top GT 2013 races all because they are to fast for the competition.
The series manager, Benjamin Franassovici, said:
"[GT Academy] has shown itself to be a great way to source raw talent and turn that into real racing talent as we saw in British GT last year with Jann Mardenborough. However Nissan’s ability to find such amazing raw talent means that we cannot accept their full season entry for British GT in 2013. Their new recruits have very little racing experience so they have to be on the lowest performance grade. Their talent, going on Jann’s speed last year, doesn’t reflect this lack of experience so it is not fair to put them up against our Pro/Gentleman grid, the basis of British GT3."
