BMW M3 series prize carA brand new BMW 3-Series car will be the ultimate champion’s reward as Codemasters revealed an incredible pan-European fastest lap challenge to mark the launch of the Race Driver: GRID playable demo for home consoles. The demo is now available to download from Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3.

For the game that’s all about the race, the Race Driver: GRID playable demo delivers intense competition right from the off as gamers compete in single-player GRID World events, 12-player online races and then prove their worth in the white-knuckle Time Trial competition, which is home to the fastest lap challenge. Pitting all console players against each other, it’s the Time Trial results that will see one race driver getting the keys to the BMW.

To participate, players submit their fastest final lap time online at http://community.racedrivergrid.com/win-bmw. Once authenticated, the lap time is then ranked against every other registered time on the online leaderboards. The challenge will end on Friday, 23rd May at midnight, and the top five ranked players will then go on to compete at the European live playoffs to be held on Race Driver: GRID’s European launch day– Friday, 30th May– at the zavvi store, Oxford Street, London, where they will compete head-to-head to win the BMW 3-Series– for real.

In addition to the Time Trial challenge, the Race Driver: GRID demo enables players to complete in a trio of GRID World racing showdowns. Take to the wheel of a Ford Mustang GT-R on the streets of San Francisco in the eBay Motors Muscle Cup; in Japan, compete in a Nissan S15 Silvia in the Advan Drift Trophy at Yokohama Docks, while the sweeping curves and hairpins of the Jarama circuit in Spain plays host to the Euro Touring Cars championship featuring BMW 320si touring cars.

For players who want to compete online, the demo delivers 12-player online competitions at the European and U.S. locations.

With a BMW 3-Series car up for grabs, the competition is sure to be fierce from the start, so download the demo and then get revved up for the full aggressive wheel-to-wheel Race Driver: GRID experience, coming May 30th for Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 and Games for Windows; a Nintendo DS edition of the game is set to launch in June.

Pre-Order Race Driver: GRID for PS3America will get a similar competition: Codemasters said the GRID playable demo is a US-exclusive fastest lap competition in which the ultimate winner will drive away with a brand new, customized, eBay Motors branded Ford Mustang GT-R. Based on one of the coolest concept cars ever introduced to the market, the eBay Motors Ford Mustang GT-R has been built and modified to feature a complete custom body kit including a supercharged engine with 445HP, a race inspired side ported exhaust system, 20” GTR concept wheels, and a six stage custom pearl paint job, complete with eBay Motors’ graphics.

the GRID playable demo delivers intense competition right from the start as players compete in single-player GRID World events, 12-player online races, and then prove their worth in the white-knuckle Time Trial competition, which is home to the eBay Motors Challenge.
