GT Academy are filming this week and four of their cars contain Pilot™ devices for biometric and vital signs data collection. Just like at Le Mans earlier this year, the data is fed directly into the cars' ECUs and transmitted back to the Nismo Juke Ride. GT Academy is really an amazing project: to see these one-time-gamers turn to the track and actually out-perform veteran racers is surely proof enough but to see two GT Academy graduates (Lucas Ordoñez and Jann Mardenborough) get on the Le Mans LMP2 podium (not forgetting Michael Krumm, of course) is amazing. We're glad to be a tiny part of it.
