A demo of Gran Turismo 6 will be released on PlayStation Network on July 2 at 9am BST, Sony Computer Entertainment has announced.

The demo is structured as a GT Academy-style driver training concept where players progressively learn the skills required to push for faster lap times.

The demo features the Silverstone circuit, new to Gran Turismo 6. Once you have proved your skills in the early round you'll unlock special bonus content.

The launch of the demo also marks the start of the 2013 GT Academy competition, that could open the door to a real life racing career with Nissan. GT Academy remains open until Sunday, July 28, whilst the demo itself will remain available until August 31.
