The Gran Turismo 5 Asia Online Tournament 2012, an official competition similar to GT Academy hosted by PlayStation Asia, concluded last weekend with an event at the Sepang Circuit.
Top finalists from the six eligible territories, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, and Hong Kong, were brought together for the Super GT race at the circuit. Sony hosted the final event in GT5 on Suzuka using the Motul Autech GT-R ’08, the Calsonic Impul GT-R ’08, and the YellowHat YMS Tomica GT-R ’08.
Andika Rama Maulana of Indonesia eventually won the competition, ahead of Lee Seonhong of Korea and Chung Ho Hin of Hong Kong. As the winner, Andika was awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2012 Tokyo Game Show. He’ll also get a complete tour of Polyphony Digital’s studios and will enjoy a dinner with Kazunori Yamauchi himself.
A separate GT5 competition was also hosted for Super GT drivers, where Daisuke Ito (#6 Lexus Team Le Mans), Yuki Nakayam (#32 Epson HSV Nakajima Racing), and JP de Olliveila (#12 Calsonic GT-R Team Impul) raced head-to-head in the game.
