Computer Cars Don't Impress the Girls

A few weeks ago I went to visit Dad, who has come up from Hobart to stay in Brisbane for a while. He's really into racing games and he bought me a copy of V8 Supercars 2 so that we could race online. The game is called Race Driver 2 everywhere else in the world. I guess they were trying to target a specific audience here in Australia.

I received an email today from Dad with a few of his best times for various tracks. He's one of the top racers in the online world and knows all the tracks, very impressive. I think I have a little way to go before I can safely challenge him to a race and be confident that I'll be able to at least keep up.

With so much simulated driving at tremendously high speeds in such powerful machines, I sometimes feel I am traveling ridiculously slow when driving my humble Camry around in the real world. Incidentally, she goes by the name 'Cameron'.
