Gran Turismo 6 versus the real world
Can our crack Playstation gamer beat GT Academy's finest round a dark Brands Hatch?
Posted: 28 Nov 2013
Brands Hatch, late November. It's an overcast Saturday afternoon, the tarmac looks damp and there's a serious chill in the air. On track, it's the Britcar Winter Warmer. Spectators are thin on the ground but they're dedicated.
I'm not here to watch, but to do something totally unique: racing Brands' Indy circuit in Gran Turismo 6, competing lap-for-lap against this year's GT Academy champions as they tackle the real-world Britcar night race out on track.
