You’ve probably heard a lot about Spain’s Lucas Ordoñez – he’s the bloke that won Nissan’s GT Academy, propelling him from Gran Turismo gamer to actual., real-life racing driver.
In this year’s event, he drove car #100 – a 370Z – along with fellow GT Academy drivers, Jordan Tresson, Bryan Heitkotter and Jann Mardenborough. But was a car full of gamers – a racing first - a bit… ambitious?
Lucas says: “If I’m worried about other gamers being worse drivers [than other drivers], I would have a problem. The other guys are great drivers and put in a very good performance.”
