    Love seeing Kaz interact with the WT drivers. And it’s so clear just how much passion he has for cars of all kinds. Really neat to hear that the torque vectoring of the Taycan was reproduced in GTS as well.

    I've never felt so much appreciation for a game developer as I do for Kaz. I just really like his character & public demeanor. He just seems like a charismatic all around cool ass dude.

    Now that I watched the video, I realized how accurate the in-game noise is!

    There is no doubt Kaz's a genius, but his demeanor is quite strange compared to "normal" people like Fraga next to him...

    But Fraga speaks fluent Japanese ???!!! I never knew that... ! Impressive!

    We need Monaco, Paul Ricard that is about a short hour away... We also need Ascari to come back ! Dang it! and all the Classic Original course from GT2/GT4....

    Igor was born in Japan, and lived there as a child. And his middle name is 'Omura'.

    There should be an ASMR trigger warning for that video because it was quite relaxing.

    Great video. Had no idea Fraga could speak Japanese or that he was born in Japan. Must be nice for both of them to easily communicate with each other.

    A good extrapolation of GT Sport feeling. The Taycan is the only EV I appreciate to play in the game.

    I watched this yesterday I absolutely love it.
    It’s great seeing a different side to Kaz we normally don’t get otherwise. He sure knows a lot about this EV Taycan. It’s great hearing him talk about the car and all the features, but also what’s in the game version VS real life version. Love the part when Igor took over and mention the Brakes and Kaz was like See I told you! Lol so cool. Also Kaz knows a thing or 2 about a linear Throttle. Wish next GT will apply it probably. :cheers:

    It was great to see Igor hang out with Kaz chatting naturally. They have a good rapport and it was relaxing to watch their drive and conversation.
