Real World Sports Meets Virtual Gaming

Here's a really neat story about the future of racing games.

Basically what it says is that we're soon going to see games that allow players to race alongside real-life races in real-time.

I can't imagine anything cooler for fans of racing games, plus it's a unique example of what broadband is making possible in the gaming world beyond creating massive open worlds with increasingly higher quality graphics.

I don't think this model will work for many sports, but between NASCAR, F1, Indy, and maybe even some day horse racing and the like, there's going to be an audience that's plenty large enough to create demand for this, so hopefully we'll see this concept become reality sooner rather than later.
