Title is wrong, should be "deemed too fast" otherwise it makes no sense.

Some of the skill transfers over. Video games sharpen your reaction time and visual acuity, which would definitely help in a real life driving scenario. Now obviously, if you play arcade racers all day you won't have a clue what you're doing in a real car. If you play something like GTR2 all day? You'll most likely do much better than you would with no prior "training" stepping into a race car because you'll know what to expect for the most part. Now obviously learning your machine IRL is a very important aspect of being good at racing as well, so I doubt the validity of this story. I don't think anyone can just get in a race car and own it up, video games or not. You'd need at least a day of practice...

I don't know GT5 with a G27 does a real good job of feeling authentic just wish I could simulate the g-force.
