Why? Because they are proving to be faster than the actual "Pros" as a result, they are now banned.

Do you think this is fair?

Fair or not, this is more proof to Gran Turismo's immense influence, and top quality.
There's no doubt that Gran Turismo is SONY's biggest IP. And probably Top 5 in gaming history.

I wish I could like it lol.

Not really.

If it got the job done, everybody in it, would be a real life racer. You don't get real life skills from a video game, particularly one that really isn't a simulator at all. A game like iRacing, would teach you more than GT could.
