Real Life Racing Game With BMW M6 and M6 GTLM

Real Life Racing Game With BMW M6 and M6 GTLM

We’ve outfitted the BMW M6 and M6 GTLM with RC technology to create a real-life racing game. Professional racecar drivers Matt Mullins and John Edwards have driven thousands of tracks. But never like this.

No.

Like just about everything you see in commercials, it's "dramatized". It would take a lot of practice to hold a drift like that using a joystick remote control. Anyone who has tried to play a racing sim with a gamepad can attest to how difficult it is. When you hook up R/C controls to real cars, you have to deal with the lag associated with servo motors and real world physics.

Indeed, as real as the 'self' driving E38 from James Bond.
