Mercedes Live Race pits the former F1 driver against gamers in a real vs. virtual racing contest.

UK Formula One fans are being given the chance to race against David Coulthard. He will be behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar, and his competitors will be using the same car on the same track but on the Playstation 3 racing game Gran Turismo 5.

The prize draw on the website is open until August 22nd and 24 people will be chosen to attend a special day-long event on September 5th at Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey, UK. They will be able to give the real car a spin on the circuits and then those who set the top 6 qualifying times on Gran Turismo 5 will compete against David Coulthard in the final race that same day.
