Having recently started racing in real life, Christian had the opportunity to race at Laguna Seca, driving a Mazda Miata (MX-5 to those in Europe). Would thousands of hours playing Forza help when he hit the track for real?
It sure can help. As we have seen with Gran Turismo and the GT Academy in 2013, it can make you faster https://www.google.com/amp/... *But now the latest crop of GT Academy winners have run into a bit of a roadblock on their path to real-life racing glory: They won't be allowed to compete in this year's British GT Championship, according to GT Planet. Why?* ***Because they're too damned fast, that's why.*** *Their talent, going on Jann's speed last year, doesn't reflect this lack of experience so it is not fair to put them up against our Pro/Gentleman grid, the basis of British GT3.* I thought these guys were pros? Lol! A videogame player shouldn't be able to compete. Right? Playing Forza, in theory, should do something similar to GT. Can't just be from playing. It's the practicing and dedication. Which is the same as what a real driver needs.
To an extent yes. But you still need that natural ability to interpret virtual from real and a lot of the guys and girls from virtual have been able to make a successful jump to real. They’ve had to train hard and understand the car under real life loads and G forces. Virtual can’t replicate the g’s but you will still get a very good understanding of what the car is doing and how to go fast. It’s amazing what you can learn in the virtual world and translate that to the real world and get very similar if not identical results.
Real life has better graphics, but the gameplay is too challenging
GT Sport is a much more faithful recreation than Forza 7. I'm fairly sure it was mentioned that Forza just updated the assets from the previous games, which would explain a lot, but even so, kudos to GT Sport!
Yes! All true!
