Sim racing is fast evolving from pastime to training aid to full-time career

I've had a long-term, love-hate relationship with virtual driving. About a decade ago, I persuaded Porsche that it would be a good idea if I took a 997 around the Nordschliefe. After Stuttgart agreed, I prepared for those laps by driving the circuit virtually in Forza on Xbox.

I did a simulator race for a club event. It seemed so realistic that when the car stopped I thought for a second, "Oh s***, now I have to walk back to the pits".
