Cough - splutter!
I have just read that Daniel Abt - a 'racing driver' involved in what I regard as the weirdly uninteresting Formula E series, presently in abeyance, has just been caught cheating by using a professional internet gamer as his proxy to 'drive' in the substitute Race at Home eSports Challenge.
So here we have a (real) sparky-racing professional driver disqualified (for real) from (a pretend) racing series for (pretending) to have been participating whereas he had (really) hired a third party to (really) press the buttons (or twiddle the joy stick - or whatever they have to do) in order to pretend that he was driving a real sparky car in a real (though in fact pretend) race...
Apparently the fine - and supposedly the shame of being caught - are entirely real.
Forgive me - but suddenly this makes the TNF world right here, and in our heads, seem all the more real.
Or have I just imagined the whole thing? Ahem - if so, could someone please summon help...?
