Gamers could be joining in a real televised sporting event from their homes early in 2010.
Real Time Race has been developing a system that places players side-by-side with the drivers in real races.
The firm's technology would map the circuit just before the race so the virtual track would match up to the one on TV.
The video recording of the track would then be manipulated by the gamer during live coverage.
