Professional Racer Races A Virtual Racer In The Same Car

by Kyle Hilliard on Dec 29, 2013 at 11:07 AM

Experimental video game website Viagame decided to pit a professional racer against a virtual racer while both were in the same vehicle.

The two are racing with the same vehicles, a Renault Mégane, on the same track, Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona. Viagame set up talented virtual racer Fredrik Brolin with a racing rig in the passenger seat, while a professional racer Peter Ternström drove the two. You can watch Game Informer editor Matt Kato compare driving a real race car to a video game in this crazy video.

Brolin and Ternström raced against one another to see who would win and I won't spoil the ending for you. You can check out the video below.
