Den of Geek: For the real life racing driver, the act of hurtling around a track is all about detail. Cutting through a bend at just the right angle. A gentle tap of the brake. A gradual squeeze of the throttle. Races are generally won not through big, dramatic finishes, but by shaving off fractions of a second off every lap time. It's a subtle art faithfully replicated in racing games such as Gran Turismo and Forza.
