GT Academy 2013 - Givin' it a whirl

GT Academy 2013 started officially on July 2nd and ends July 28th. I decided to give it a go and see how well I stack up against the fastest sim racers in the US. Since I started yesterday, I have put a few hours in and am in 1,231st place in the US out of over 22,000 entrants. I have lots to learn about how to be quick in Gran Turismo, but plenty of time to try and get it done. Making it to the National Finals (top 31) is a long-shot, but I have no chance if I don't try.

As you can see, there is quite a bit of time to make up. The fastest guys are putting down unbelievable times, but there replay videos and ghosts are available to everybody in the competition so there is at least a chance to learn from them. 

My Playstation handle is YawMomentRacing (shocker, I know...) and the live updating results can be viewed here:
