How far away is a Racery virtual race?

A new study suggests that words with front vowels are perceived to be closer, while back vowel words are further away.

For example, you might say that a town called Fleen was closer than a town called Floon… that is if anyone asked. 🙂

Funnily enough, this means the vowel configuration for Racery, which turns nearby training mileage into movement on virtual maps of distant places, a combination of close, far, close.

Perfect, right?
