Nissan at FoS 2015

The Nissan stand looks set to be a popular area of the Festival of Speed this year, with an array of exciting Q&A appearances confirmed, the much-vaunted GT Academy and a photo opportunity with the UEFA Champions League Trophy among other activities.


Nissan GT Academy is a one-of-a-kind competition. Created by Nissan and PlayStation, it allows the best Gran Turismo®6 players to compete for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become a real-life professional racing driver. Any player who proves his or her skill in the virtual world has a chance to go wheel-to-wheel in a real racecar to become part of the Nissan NISMO racing team.

The best part? This year at GFOS, three of you will win the ultimate prize- go directly through to the National Finals in Abu Dhabi!

Make sure you visit the Nissan stand on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to qualify for your chance to win!

We are looking for great gaming skills, pure talent, passion and dedication to find the next professional racing driver. Does that sound like you?


This year at Goodwood Festival of Speed, Nissan will give you the opportunity to get closer to NISMO athletes Jann Mardenborough, Harry Tincknell and Sir Chris Hoy.

Come along to find out about Jann Mardenborough’s exciting story of going from a PlayStation gamer to a professional NISMO racing driver as well as his tips for progressing in the GT Academy. Harry Tincknell will then take you behind the scenes of one of the most successful, challenging and prestigious races in the world – Le Mans 24 hours. And finally, six-time Olympic cycling gold medalist Sir Chris Hoy will talk about his incredible journey from being the king of the velodrome to becoming a professional NISMO racing driver!
