Sony is teaming up with Nissan to offer what's being billed as the "ultimate competitive driving test".

The Nissan GT Academy prize is for two people to get a real-life racing tutorial over the course of four months. They'll then get to compete in Dubai's 24-hour race in January next year.

The competition will kick off on May 23rd on PSN. Speaking at the PlayStation Day conference SCEE boss David Reeves told the audience, "Every round of the GT Academy will be filmed and made available on the PlayStation Network."

Gran Turismo 5 Prologue was launched in PAL territories in March, and since then more than 1.5 million copies have been sold in the region. You can find a review and loads of movies over on the gamepage.
