Despite how hard you practice in your back yard with your foam Master Sword, you will never be able to use skills learned from Legend of Zelda in the real world. This doesn’t apply to all video games, however, as evidenced by the Nissan GT Academy competition.
This year marked the fourth season of Nissan GT Academy North America—all of which you can watch now on Hulu right now—with the final race being won by Nic Hamman of Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
Hamman won an exciting four-car shoot out at Silverstone, locking up the title of 2014 Nissan GT Academy North American champion and earning himself a contract to compete as a NISMO athlete.
Since there’s no rest for the wicked, Hamman will kick off his budding career as soon as 2015 gets underway when he flies to Dubai with three other drivers for the Dubai 24 Hours race January 8-10.
Hamman couldn’t be happier with where he’s at.
“I wake up every day with a smile on my face, ready to go work out and get more track time and training,” Hamman told Nissan. “Even in quiet times sitting in the car ready to go out, I’ll reflect on how fortunate I am to get to do this. Now I just have to go out there and prove they made the right choice. I will be racing with the big dogs, starting with Dubai next month.”
We here at James Ceranti Nissan will be watching along. Best of luck, Nic!
