You cannot hate on that. Thats like a dream come true for the guy...

Other racers must be asking who his trainer/coach is....."GT5 racing wheel with the help of poly digital, you know them?"

Max_Dissatisfaction2539d ago

lol yes, lets forget his real coach and all his training and practising, he won all because he plays gran turismo.
On an unrelated note, a big crime has been solved by the police in my area...someone must have played LA NOIRE

I'm going to have to agree with Max on this one. GT is an amazing racing game, but it was only his door into the real world of car racing. Practicing in GT will improve your skills, no denying it, but not in a way that a real world coach will.

Also, I think GT could definitely use improvements in the driver training area. I think there should be a mode in which players are taught advanced driving techniques and drills (and I don't mean the licence tests), as well as a mode where you can dissect tracks how you want so you can practice specific corners with the car and under the conditions of your choice. GT could use considerable improvements in that area.
