U.K. Police Are Using 'GT Sport' as a Training Tool

Gran Turismo Sport comes out tomorrow, but some police in the United Kingdom are already using it to hone their driving skills. Members of the Lincolnshire Police Force recently met with officials from GT Academy, a program that uses the virtual world to train racers. The academy reportedly put the officers through a rigorous in-game regime to see if it could help improve their real-life driving skills. Apparently, it worked. After completing a lap at Silverstone in a real car, the officers then played GT Sport and did the lap again. They finished 14 seconds faster on average than the previous lap.

"GT Academy has proven that the skills learned via Gran Turismo directly transfer from the virtual track onto the real one," said Project Director of GT Academy Laurence Wiltshire. "This is thanks to the incredibly accurate simulation of the tracks but more importantly the simulation of the cars, their physics and how they handle. GT Sport is the best in the series history and, with the addition of VR mode, offers the most realistic driving simulation yet. It's one thing to train racing drivers but the idea that a game could help officers respond to emergencies more efficiently is mind-blowing."
