Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

ohnny Guindi Hamui from Mexico realized his motorsport dreams today as he was crowned the 2016 #nissan PlayStation® #gtacademy International champion at #silverstone Circuit. The 22-year-old triumphed above 35 other elite Gran Turismo® gamers from around the world, winning a place on the comprehensive #nissan Driver Development Program and a race seat in the 2017 Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai race, alongside 2011 #gtacademy winner Jann Mardenborough. https://twitter.com/GTAcademy/status/791305528823648257 The decision came after an epic eight-day Race Camp in the UK, with Hamui chosen as the winner due to his consistent pace and adaptability throughout the week, as well as a willingness to listen and take on all the advice given to him throughout Race Camp. In a new format for 2016, Race Camp came to an end with a 16-lap endurance race around #silverstone International Circuit, with two competitors from each territory taking part in the final race. In previous years, mentors have selected just one competitor to contest the race, but this new format gave a more in-depth look at how a larger range of competitors perform on the big occasion.
