Police officers have been receiving extra lessons in high-speed car chases – by playing a VIDEO GAME. PlayStation has partnered up with Lincolnshire Police in order to provide extra tuition to specialist drivers using Gran Turismo Sport. The project – which aims to boost skill and safety – has seen officers clock an initial lap time at Silverstone race course in Towcester, Northants. The four drivers then received specialist training using the game, including a new virtual reality mode. Any areas for improvement such as under or oversteer, braking late and carrying too much speed in corners were identified, with GT Sport used to demonstrate correct techniques.
