The patented system his company is developing sucks in real-time GPS data from racing events and pumps it out to compatible games consoles and PCs.

The idea is that you could pit yourself against the top drivers in the world, as it happens, from the comfort of your living room.


That would be amazing, racing against a real race conditions and drivers from GPS data, it would be so much better than normal AI cool.gif

F1 championship on the n64 had a very similar concept.

I disagree, for the purists it would be better than sex but for your average joe(me)I would not be amused being lapped 50 times.

As long as the virtual banana peels I throw on the virtual track are somehow placed on the real track, Iam happy! Finally, a chance to spin out F1 racers!!

I don't understand how it would work. Would you not be able to crash into 'live' F1 racers? One small thing could throw the whole gps thing off. I don't know, maybe I am missing something.

If Hamilton is driving behind you he can't see you [in the game], so he would drive right through you," explained Mr Lurling.

"So the AI takes over at that point and you see a very realistic overtaking."
