BMW M3: GT5 vs reality

According to Top Gear’s highly spurious and questionable scientific knowledge, playing car racing games for hours makes you an 88 per cent better human being. And a better driver.

We have evidence. When we put iRacing hero Greger Huttu in the cockpit of a single seat racing car (see link below), he transformed his hours of virtual play into respectable real-world racing times around the Road Atlanta raceway in Georgia.

Geek, rebooted

Now another chap has transferred his gaming skills into real-world prowess. Denis Malevanyi hotfooted it around the Nurburgring in GT5’s virtual reality and in tyre-shrieking-soiled-underwear-watch-that-scooter-reality.

He then edited both laps into this natty split-screen video, that you can now show your better half when they inevitably scream at you for spending hours on your PS3. Remember, the Geek shall inherit the earth…
