Great stuff, Well done to those who made the cut, I was around 10-15 seconds slower than everyone else.

Am I the only one who appreciates these kinds of things that Sony do? I think this is outstanding! Get a shot in real life through a videogame.

That one guy got a job at MM for his work in LBP and now a driver gets a real life chance to start a career in racedriving. PS3 really gives people opportunities...:D

I don't know about you but I'm impressed about this.
