Gran Tursimo gamers come in third in Pro-Am event, despite streak of bad luck.

Gamers have proven once again that Gran Turismo players can take the top places in real-life racing events.

During this past weekend, an all-gamer team took third place in the Pro-Am class at Spa’s 24 Hours event. This team consisted of one Lucas Ordoñez, one Jann Mardenborough, one Wolfgang Reip, and one Peter Pyzera. These four also managed to pull out a seventh place victory overall in their number 35 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3.

Nissan itself reports that the team fought hard for the finish. The number 32 G-Drive liveried Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 crashed during the first hour of the track, and, due to an ill-timed brake change, the number 35 car had to come back from being three laps behind the competition.

The group managed to turn the disadvantage around into a third place victory, and it isn’t the first time that drivers from GT Academy have  proven that they shouldn’t be underestimated.

One has to wonder; If the number 35 hadn’t had such an ill-timed brake change and was 3 laps behind, would they have completely dominated the competition to come in first?
