This makes me really jealous

http://www.statesmanjournal.com/arti...807/301040018/

If the name of the article isn't clear, a kid from where I live won a PS 3 Gran Turismo 6 contest to become a real race car driver.

Re: This makes me really jealous

Thats pretty interesting. They give him a salary? Sheesh. What if he sucks. Cause surely sitting stationary infront of the tv is a bit different when having to worrying about throttle/break pedal modulation. Not to mention if they are slapstick cars or manual. Yeah. I can rock some sick times on a controller, too. Racing in real life is a completely different game. Looks like he has no time for any practice just straight into racing.

Don't worry DB. You're probably a better driving them him. If that helps any.

Re: This makes me really jealous

I agree TIF. I wouldn't be surprised if he got into a big accident during his first race. I think its weird, him just being thrown right in there immediately. You would think they would've given him some time for practice.

Re: This makes me really jealous

Absolutely. He is going to be so worried about NOT hitting other cars. He's definitely going to get into situations where he may lose control of his emotions and as you mention...his car.
