Brit wins 2011 GT Academy

Scientific experimentation has propelled mankind forward in unimaginable and fortuitous ways. For example, before George Foreman's Lean Mean Grilling Machine, we never knew meat could be toasted sans fat.
Similarly, before Nissan and Sony PlayStation's GT Academy, the world could only wonder if a bedroom racer used to spending hours hunched over a console in a darkened room could successfully make it as a fully paid-up agent of oversteer.
Guess what - they can.
