Gamers' Nissan Racing Skills Could Translate to Real Life
Do you enjoy playing video games- particularly racing games? If so, you may be cultivating skills that translate to real life, or so Nissan racer and FT Academy winner Bryan Heitkotter believes. Heitkotter drives the Nissan GT-R Black Edition, which was released as part of the 4 car packs along with the December 2011 Sony PS3 GranTurismo5 game release, and he believes that simulated racing skills can help cultivate real-life racing skills as well.
Heitkotter recently answered a question from a Facebook fan regarding the game-to-life skills transition, stating, "I think the GT Academy has kind of legitimized the simulated racing as a potential route in the motor sports. You know, there not always a crossover between the two, depending on the driver, but there can be quite a bit. Most drivers who take simulated racing seriously, you know, for a few years, will have the skills to transfer them into real car. And I think we will start seeing more of that as simulated racing gets more realistic over time."1 The Nissan GT-R can currently be found on the second downloadable GT Academy pack for the GranTurismo5 racing game, and the Nissan Leaf can be found on the third pack, which was released in mid-January 2012.
