Videogamer starts real life racing career against living legend

Mark Nichol


This weekend sees the latest GT Academy winner, 20-year-old Jann Mardenborough, begin his first full season as a real racing driver. We hate him.

We hate him not only because he's managed to turn being quite good at Gran Turismo into doing racing in real life, but also because he's a very pleasant, very talented young man. Jealousy. Pure jealousy.
