Looks like he ran "48" for a while.

The book corvette racing legends shows 48 with very small glass packs, not the usual hooker side pipe headers. This is on pg 301.

Could be a "clone" which would not surprise me, the way that he tagged the wall.

One of the other guys will probably know more.

Might be a simulation. Tora is an on line racing game. I watched it at the gym when doing cardio. Had me fooled.

I'll maybe try the computer instead of the iPhone.

Hmmm, I was wondering how he was managing to chatter so nonchalantly while driving that beast like that....

That's definitely a [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...].
I 'think' it's sill obvious, but being a game programmer have me heavily biased on the subject.
It won't be long until even I couldn't tell game footage from real one.

I watched it again today on the iPhone, and I see things I never noticed the first time. Getting old, bifocals, etc etc.

But, you are right, not too far to go.

Well, the guy did the a pretty good job a giving his voice a muffled yelling feel just like if he would be in the car.
In some aspects ear is easier to trick than eye.
