Mercedes Benz is offering a once in a lifetime chance to race against one of the biggest names in motorsport, not completely in reality, but hey.
The idea is that on Monday 5 September 2011, David Coulthard will be driving a Mercedes SLS around a race track, while a number of opponents will try to beat him, in real time, on Gran Turismo 5 Playstation game!
That is a truly fun game, because Coulthard cannot be sure of victory. He may be beaten by a geek! 24 prize-draw winners will enter a qualifying round at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey, during an exclusive event day.
Mercedes has kept the location of the track a mystery until the day to keep things fair. The final showdown is guaranteed to be a dramatic 15 minute race, where the gamer to set the fastest lap will win an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2011 Brazilian Grand Prix on 27 November. Participants can also win the chance to experience the real and awesome 6.3 litre V8 powered Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG on the brand centre’s unique Handling Circuits.
