The hotly anticipated release of the Need for Speed Shift 2 Unleashed game is a week away so it only seems right that we drum up the interest on the game further to ensure that there’s enough hype to justify making a purchase. Of course, a game like this certainly doesn’t need the ‘added’ help considering that the NFS franchise speaks for itself as far as racing games are concerned.
Then again, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have a few more previews of the game. The latest to come out of Electronic Arts’ marketing department is a video of Tommy Milner, the driver of the Corvette Racing Team, taking on a hot lap at Laguna SECA while driving his own Corvette C6.R GT1 race car.
The video shows Milner basically flying around Laguna Seca with a lap time that’s as clean as a whistle, including a smooth run around the infamous ‘Corkscrew’. It looked like he could have driven around the lap while eating a bucket of chicken on one hand. That’s the kind of talent he has.
In the end, Milner posted a lap time of 1:21:709, which for a GT1 car is mighty impressive. But if you think it’s not fast enough, you can take a shot at Milner’s time courtesy of the game’s Autolog Challenge and see if you can beat one of the sport’s promising young stars in a lap around Laguna Seca.
