One thing I left out of my talk with racing legend and 1970 LeMans winner Hans Herrmann was that I convinced him to try a quick lap on Forza. Because, you know, all octogenarians love video games.

Hans did remarkably well, I think, considering how foreign the normal XBox controller must seem, and my inane questions (race-wise?). Plus, he even recognized a corner on the Nordschleife where Senna once passed him. And, while his final assessment was it's only really good for der kinder, it may have some use to help you learn a track.

Hans was quite a good sport, though I don't expect Microsoft will be approaching him for an endorsement deal any time soon.
