As far as fictitious names goes I think going with last names would
work for two reasons.
First, most first names have alternative spellings and nicknames
attached. A name like Shaun can be spelled like Shaun, Shawn, or Sean,
and a name like Richard can be nicknamed Rich, Rick, Richie, Rickie,
Dick, etc. Lots of possibilities. Where a name like Johnson is short and
to the point.
Second, while racing tends to be a male sport it isn't always the case.
Some women really dig racing too, and it would be kind of sexist to fill
all of the driver data with male names. A last name can be either one.
In fact, I have a few female customers on pre-order for the game so it
wouldn't be cool to exclude them.

Fictitious drivers, created from a list of first and last names or
allowing us to type a name of our own choosing, fictitious sponsors,
and real track names with accurate configurations such as banking and
layout are what I would like, as long as copyright issues don't arise.
Stop repeat offenders! Don't reelect them!
