Since 2008, Nissan and Sony have held an annual competition to turn automotive racing videogame Gran Turismo fans into real-life racers.
In 2014 the competition aired as a reality TV series on the Spike TV network and streaming service Hulu.
TBWA\Chiat\Day LA and Nissan produced a 30-minute documentary on the winner, 21-year-old Nic Hammann. Hammann bested the 100 million online applicants and 29 other applicants in the TV series.
The web film on Hulu shows his journey from snowy Wisconsin to a race track in Dubai for his first professional race.
