Kazunori Yamauchi, the creator of Gran Turismo, has been racing real cars against real people in real life.

He's been zooming around the Nurburgring 24-hour race as part of a four-man team.

Kazunori Yamauchi drove the Nissan GT-R car over the finishing line, capping a time of nearly seven-and-three-quarter hours, reported DualShockers.

Finishing 36th netted the team an epic Victory in the SP 8T class.

"The Nurburgring 24 hour race was dramatic and a lot happened during the last leg," wrote Yamauchi-san on Twitter. "Class victory goes to the GT-R. Thanks a lot for the congratulatory messages. Time for the awards ceremony now."

Hasn't he got better things to do?
