When I was young and played Gran Turismo 3 and other racing games, I would often hold down the accelerate button before a match started, thinking it would be faster.
Now that I own my own car and drive it, I still don't think I fully understand how to rev the engine before a match. When I was playing GT3 the other day, I remember that cars will make a distinctive vvvrrRRRRRRR vrrrrrrRRRRRR vvvvvRRRRRRR sound, as if they are pushing on the pedal, then releasing, then pushing back down, then releasing, prior to the race starting.
How am I supposed to rev the engine prior to starting a race? Is it pedal to the medal for GT3? Or should I keep my feet off the accelerator until the race starts?
