We wedge the world’s greatest online gamer into a real race car to discover important things about virtual reality and vomiting...

So let's treat today as Greger's first step up the complicated pyramid of motorsport. At the top lie the worlds of F1 and IndyCar and NASCAR and Le Mans. To access them, he'll need that unique mentality. But he'll also need to condition his body to deal with the constant pummelling. Because a racing driver must come as a package. He needs skill and courage and sheer physical ability. Some of this can be perfected on iRacing; other bits will require blood, sweat and tears. It might be a bit late for 30-year-old Greger to get into perfect physcial shape, but for all the younger dreamers out there, our advice is simple. Sit yourself at a PC, load up iRacing and give it a go - you could have some of the magic stuff too. And if you do, be sure to join a gym. Quickly.
We've seen enough vomit-filled helmets for one lifetime, thanks.
