Here we go. The EU PS Blog’s just confirmed that a GT Academy 2010 Time Trial will release on December 17.

As the Blog puts it, “It will be the first opportunity to get a hands-on taster as to what Yamauchi-san and his Polyphony team have been carefully crafting and polishing at their Tokyo base.”

It’s not clear as yet whether this is actually GT5 code or just a new track using the Prologue build. We’re checking now.

Competition-wise, if you qualify in the top twenty within your country and you will be invited to a national final event. If you make it from there only then will you join the 20 that will be taken into the GT Academy 2010.

There’s full details through there.
