Sony have announced a Gran Turismo 6 demo will be hitting PSN next Tuesday the 2nd July at 9.00am. Anyone wanting to try out for this year’s GT Academy will be able to post their times to the leaderboard for a chance to progress to the next selection stage.

Gran Turismo 6 demo due Tuesday 2nd July

Here’s the info from the EU Blog:

“The demo is structured as a GT Academy-style driver training concept where you progressively learn the skills required to push very expensive track monsters at full speed round impossible apexes. The course where the action takes place is Silverstone, the spiritual home of GT Academy (and one of the brand new confirmed GT6 track locations in GT6).

In GT Academy regions, once you’ve cleared the earlier rounds you will then have your shot to post your time to the leaderboard and see if you have got what it takes to progress to the next stage.

Regardless of whether you are in one of the GT Academy eligible countries or not, once you have proved your skills and made the grade through the initial rounds you will unlock special bonus content.

The demo will remain live until 31st August 2013, but if you’re in the GT Academy hunt you have until 11.59pm BST on 28th July 2013 to take a step towards a chance of a real life racing career”.
