Here's a crazy one: a guy who learned racing on video games, takes 2nd in class at Le Mans.

Those long hours of practice paid off, as Lucas won the competition ? and the opportunity to take part in a real-world race, the Dubai 24 Hours. His run of good luck (and impressive skillz) continued ? Nissan bigwigs noticed the gamer and decided to offer him another racing opportunity ? not only a place on the grid for the the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, but also a start at this year?s Le Mans 24 Hours.
Congratulations. Maybe this'll get more people thinking about games as a serious way to train skills.
