What are you doing on the weekend of March 25 next year? Heading to Melbourne for the Formula One Grand Prix thank you very much – and to top that off, why not take a hot lap of the Albert Park F1 circuit with Aussie legend Mark Webber!
Yep, that’s the plan, if you play Forza Motorsport 7 that is.
Five lucky winners will be flown to Melbourne, put up for three nights and not only enjoy a great race weekend, but get a hot lap in the passenger seat of the car that graces the cover of Forza Motorsport 7 – the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
Webber is a Michelin Ambassador and works with Porsche following his stellar motorsport career, so he’s front and centre for this promotion.
To enter you need to play Forza between November 6 and December 1, and enter online with 25 words or less why you are worthy of the hot lap!
Oh, and if you win – when you get home, you’ll have a brand new Xbox One X to play too.
The announcement from Michelin, Xbox and Porsche goes on to say:
“At Porsche, we’re thrilled to team with Xbox and Michelin to be part of this promotion and provide such a unique experience – placing one of Australia’s greatest ever race drivers in our fastest ever 911 at the world-famous Albert Park circuit,” said Porsche Cars Australia Director of Marketing and Motorsport, Toni Andreevski.
“Very few people have the opportunity to ride in a high performance sports car at its limits, so we’re excited to give this exact experience to five lucky winners in our fastest ever 911 – the GT2 RS – in the very capable hands of Mark Webber.”
Jeremy Hinton, Xbox Business Lead at Microsoft Australia is proud to announce the promotion befitting of the latest release in the Forza series.
“Forza Motorsport 7 is one of the most comprehensive, beautiful and authentic racing games ever made and it’s great to partner with Porsche and Michelin for such a promotion that encapsulates the thrill and excitement experienced by the game itself,” said Hinton.
“Our lucky prize winners are in for a treat – riding alongside Mark Webber at the wheel of the astonishingly fast 911 GT2 RS is certainly a prize worthy of such a racing game, which provides a sensational 4K racing simulation on the world’s most powerful console, the Xbox One X.”
Michelin Australia Marketing Manager, Tim Hoare, added: “We are very excited to partner with premium brands such as Porsche and Xbox for the release of Forza Motorsport 7. Both brands share our passion and enthusiasm for motorsport, and the release of Forza Motorsport 7 presents an exciting opportunity for the Michelin brand. We hope that this is the first of many such collaborations in the gaming and e-sports space in the coming years.”
