Ant lover of racing games has wondered at on time or another just how close the game is to real racing. Imagine, taking the same car you are using in the game and putting it head-to-head with the real car on the real-life version of the track you are racing on; what a fantastic idea, right?
To date, we have never seen this test, but the folks over at Viagame did just that in order to find out which crosses the finish line first, the virtual racer or the real-life on..
To perform this crazy test, they recruited one of Sweden’s best gamers and put him in a Renault Mégane Red Bull Edition with gaming system installed in it. They then took a real-life race car driver and put him in the driver’s seat of the Renault and headed for the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona to see who wins.
Check out the above video to see who wins, it’s pretty neat to see real versus virtual in a head-to-head battle.
