This is how cutting corners ironically lengthen an entire competition.

Records have been shattered in Gran Turismo, but in ways that aren’t tolerable by developer or any other standards. Cheaters have risen again after the second round of Sony’s Gran Turismo Academy (GT Academy) racing competition as reports state that several players have cut corners and exploited course flaws and glitches to reach impossible lap times. As a result, Sony has ultimately voided the second round results thus allowing everyone to move on to the next.

Developer Polyphony Digital has announced that they are currently in the works of fixing any other potential exploits before proceeding to the third round. The original schedule of the third round of the GT Academy competition was supposed to be on the 14th of February, but due to recent events, the competition has been delayed indefinitely.

Sony’s GT Academy competition is a virtual racing stint to give the world’s best Gran Turismo 5 players a chance to become real race drivers by using their gaming skills to win.
