DUALSHOCK, REAL CAR

Con­trol­ling a real NISMO GTR with a pad

Just

be­fore Gran Turismo Sport launched, Sony and Nismo gave Mar­den­bor­ough the op­por­tu­nity to do the two things he does best – play­ing games and driv­ing cars – at the same time. Us­ing a mod­i­fied DualShock 4 to con­trol a race-spec Nis­san GTR in au­to­matic gear­ing mode from a he­li­copter above Sil­ver­stone, he was able to log some com­pet­i­tive lap times – within a sec­ond of prior GT Academy fi­nal­ists’ times when they com­peted at the cir­cuit. “I can’t think up those kind of ideas when I’m day­dream­ing,” he says. “To be able to do that was mega.”

While Jann hov­ered above, this rig car­ried out his in­struc­tions to drive the car round Sil­ver­stone.
