Nissan has brought reality and virtual together with the ultimate remote-control auto for gamers - the Nissan GT-R /C. Driving a full-size, remote-control GT-R to 131 miles per hour at Silverstone whilst chasing it down in a helicopter was an unforgettable experience. Not only is he a huge fan of Gran Turismo, but he is also a graduate of GT Academy.

But he wasn't just sat on a sofa in his trousers - instead Jann took to the skies in a helicopter to chase the vehicle. This way, he was able to see the entirety of the Silverstone's National Circuit as he "drove" the vehicle. His overall fastest time was 1:17:47. He managed to get an average speed of 76mph with a top speed of 131mph.

The remote-control vehicle - dubbed the GT-R/C - is capable of 315kmh without anybody actually behind the wheel.

Nissan then put famously successful NISMO racing driver Jann Mardenborough in a helicopter, flying at low altitude - the company needed special permission for that - and unleashed him and the GT-R/C on the track at Silverstone. Jann Mardenborough followed just such a path, and in a different coming together of video games and real life, has remotely driven an actual Nissan GT-R at speeds of up to 211 km/h (131 mph) using a PlayStation DualShock 4 controller. JLB Design has done an incredible job at making everything respond really well.

Ballon d'Or: Kane, Messi, Neymar, Ronaldo, Hazard, De Gea, Kante shortlisted
Indeed, no player over than Ronaldo or Messi have won the award since 2007 when Brazilian Kaka beat the pair to the gong. The nominees for the 2017 Ballon d'Or have been revealed.

Instead of connecting to a PlayStation though it connected to a micro-computer interpreted the joystick and button movements and transmitted them directly to the GT-R, with a primary control range of 1km. The unmodified PlayStation DualShock 4 controller was then connected to a micro-computer that interprets the controller inputs and transmits them to the vehicle. Six computers in the trunk translated inputs from the PS4 controller and actuated the GT-R/C's steering, brakes, throttle, and transmission.

To help Mardenborough judge the vehicle's speed through the corners, a Racelogic VBOX Motorsport sensor was installed to relay speed data to a LCD display in the helicopter cockpit.
