Look pretty sweet? This Gran Turismo chassis was made by HumanRacing and will be given away for free to the winner of the Racer X Challenge, which will be taking place close to San Diego Comic-Con on July 12th.
Winning the chassis also gets you a chance to enter Sony and Nissan’s joint challenge in the GT Academy National Finals- where 33 racers compete in Gran Turismo 5 and driving real cars to debut into the professional racing (stunt and otherwise) world, with Spike TV documenting the road to victory for whomever wins.
Will this be your claim to fame?
