To tell the truth, I haven't looked for these episodes on GT-TV. The newest episodes are usually posted on youtube Monday following latest TV episode on Thursday PM. I guess I should post a spoiler alert!

last year's show was kind of just an excersize of seeing what happened because we already knew who won ahead of time.  at least they seem to be withholding that info for now.  or are they putting out the shows that much faster?

 

I mean, last year before the first episode aired, we already knew that Brian Hoetkotter won.  Is this year's academy finished or are we seeing what happens each week, the next week?

Only Nissan, PD, SpikeTV and the contestants know who won the contest. My info source tells me the contestants sign a Non-Disclosure agreement before they compete. I know who I am rooting for, but have no clue who actually won.

Just watched the first episode last night... so not caught up yet.

 

But I did find it kind of weird that they made drifting part of the competition and didn't have that be part of GT Academy on the PS3.  They seemed surprised that almost everyone sucked at it.  I kept yelling at the screen, "you didn't get drifters, you got racers!"

 

I can see how a drift aspect of the competition could show you some insight about each driver's car control, but still...

 

And yet again, we had some people complaining they were "not physically fit" but didn't they watch GT Academy 2011 and see how important that is to their potential to win?

 

GT Academy itself was close to 3 months long on the PS3.  THen, I presume there was some time b efore they went to Comicon for the top 32.  Then, there was more time before going to Siverstone.  That would have been plenty of time to condition one's self to a respectable degree.

 

Anyone who wasn't out running miles every day to get their stamina up was basically asking to go home early.

That was good 10 lap racing.  Congrats to the winner.

 

As they said that at the beginning... The one with the least mistakes and being the most consistent wins.

To be quite honest, I don't like the TV series of GT Academy 2012. No offense, although I don't like how the camera constantly cuts around much one scene after the next ina  few seconds during the action. Just my honest opinion.

Here is the final episode of GT Academy 2012. I was rooting for my friends Jeff (RackAttack) and Jett (Jett_Racer) clear to the end.
