Kazunori Yamauchi, Class Winner in the Nürburgring 4 Hour Race wrote: "On August 29, in the 8th round of the VLN series at Germany's Nurburgring circuit, "Gran Turismo" series producer, Kazunori Yamauchi achieved a Class win in SP8 (engine "close to production" class / Lexus IS F).

This is how you know that GT5 i a racer sim in a class above all, the creator himself is a pro racer. Not some guy who keep blabbering nonsenses.

edit: I feel sorry for those who think gt5's physics are bad, seriously how wrong can physics go with a man who races and win them behind the work. If you're one of those people you need to drive more... no you need to experience real racing , gt5 is as close as it gets. My old pop use to take me on joyrides back in my country. One thing I can guarantee ya is racing is way different experience than driving to your local market.

The definitive difference, Polyphony Digital actually sits in a car and drives and races in them while Turn 10 plays barbie dress up with their dynamometers.
