One of the first GT Academy winners, Lucas Ordonez, has told the EU PS Blog how hard the entire experience has been for him, speaking before the release of the GT5 time trial demo to find new drivers on December 17.

“The whole thing is tough,” he said. “But for me racing cars was my dream, so it was great. Anyone taking part has to be prepared for a real 360 degree change to their life. You have to have total dedication and be prepared to make sacrifices.

“Lars, who won with me, was a great guy and he was a good driver, but I just don’t think he was focused enough and he ended up not being ready to race.”

Ordonez has now secured your race license and driven in the the 24 Hour race in Dubai.
