Lucas Ordoñez takes off on a 24-hour road trip – Click above to watch video after the jump

Oh, what a life...

Lucas Ordoñez went from racing cars on his couch to sitting behind the wheel of a real-life Nissan LMP2 racecar. After winning the Nissan/Playstation GT Academy contest, Ordoñez earned a shot at putting his virtual skills to the test. He's running a full Le Mans Cup schedule this year, which includes the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Nissan is prepping him for a full day of racing, and to do that they've sent him and his teammates on a trip around England.

Armed with a Nissan GT-R, an RV, trainers and a dietitian, Lucas Ordoñez and his team will split driving duties as they travel around the country. The team knows this isn't as dramatic as spending hours behind the wheel of a racecar, but it's still a good warm-up to the real thing. Click past the jump to watch Lucas and friends on their research road trip.
