    Congratulations on all your success Matt and thanks for taking us on the journey with you. It is cool to get a behind the scenes look at how the GT Academy program works. It is what you make of it and it is clear that you have given 200% to make the most of your opportunity. Not only have you made your ROOZ and Nismo family proud but you are a shining example of what is possible with hard work and determination. This is only the beginning for you and we can't wait for the next chapter of your journey to unfold.
    Thanks

    Got to admit they all looked like amateurs in that final race. But that's one hell of an achievement!

    *edit. Which of course they are. What I meant was they were all very inconsistent with their lines and overall pace.

    I wish we had the other videos. I guess when Matt gets back. :)

    You deserve it @MINT_GTR. Everyone can see that you put in the hard yards and the results keep comming. Pretty soon people will associate GT academy with Lucas, Jann, Wolfgang, and Matt Simmons. I hope you have a long future with the Nismo franchise.

    I'd hold out for Le Mans. Surely if Matt's already got the Blancpain gig Nismo will have him in something for the big race ;)

    • Need to transfer to the circuit area... it is about 160kms... thinking about a hire car... they start at 30 euro/day
    • Accom via airbnb.com... you can book an entire house that sleeps anywhere from 2 to 6 for $600 -$1000 for the 5 nights of the event within 3 kms of the curcuit
    • tickets for entry + paddock access on saturday which inc Sunday 62.50 Euro ($80 -90)... Could not find if entry to practice and Qualifying days are charged... I would think they will be
