used to play Gran Turismo on PlayStation thanks to footballer dad but now I’m pro GT racer with movie about my life

WHEN Jann Mardenborough picked up his PlayStation controller for the first time, he never dreamed it would end like this. With hours of PlayStation experience in the bag, Mardenborough, then 19 and living in Cardiff after dropping out of university and working part-time in a clothes store, entered the competition and raced to victory. A place on the Nissan team was in the bag but despite all those hours in front of the box, Mardenborough had never stepped foot on a racetrack. He  has enjoyed a remarkable rise from bedroom racer to pro speedster to helping with the Hollywood production of his own story. In 2015 during a race in Germany, Mardenborough was involved in a smash which killed a spectator.
