Gran Turismo 6 versus the real world
Can our crack Playstation gamer beat GT Academy's finest round a dark Brands Hatch?

But not by much - after 90 minutes of racing and 95 laps, we'd finished just 30 seconds down on the lead GT Academy car, driven by Florian and Stanislav. That's just 0.3 seconds a lap slower, on average. Krisztian's fastest lap was a blinding 0:52.949. The Academy's was 0:52.394.
It seems our virtual challenge was the talk of the pitlane, with people checking up on our progress and even marshalls popping in to see how we're doing. The biggest reward for me was to have Bryce, my tutor for the day, compliment me on my consistency. I was surprised that I'd kept it together. The relief was just settling in as the cramp in my right leg started.
