Gran Turismo, a film based on a true story

Indeed, the feature film will retrace the story of Jann Mardenborough (played by Archie Madekwe, but hired to film the racing scenes). A British gamer turned professional driver at Nissan. This thanks to the Nissan GT Academy, a competition organized by the Japanese manufacturer, the game Gran Turismo and Sony PlayStation. The latter was intended to detect the best gamers to make them go from virtual to real.

Winner of the Nissan GT Academy in 2011, Jann Mardenborough then competed in major GT championships with Nissan. He also evolved in single-seaters, up to the GP3 Series (current F3 FIA, antechamber of Formula 1) with a victory in 2013. In 2015, he was also part of Nissan’s short adventure at Le Mans in LMP1, the premier category of the ‘era.

It is this story that the film Gran Turismo, whose release is planned in cinemas in this year 2023, will attempt to tell.
