Mad Skills in Auto Racing Sim Games Could Win You a Test in a Global Mazda MX-5 Cup Car

If you're an accomplished player of online racing simulation games who also dreams of triumph on a real-world track, take note. The Mazda Hot Lap Challenge could give you a chance to put your gaming skills to work to win the grand prize: a test in the Mazda MX-5 Global Cup Car.

Two paths can be taken to the grand prize of the test in a Global Mazda MX-5 Cup car. At select Mazda Motorsports events throughout 2018, Mazda’s consumer display will feature a racing simulator that utilizes a Mazda Global MX-5 Cup car at Daytona International Speedway. The race fan who records the fastest lap time throughout 2018 on that simulator will earn an all-expense paid VIP trip to the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona as a guest of Mazda Team Joest.

For those who are not at the track, the Mazda Hot Lap Challenge will be mirrored on iRacing. Following the same schedule and same circuits as the at-track portion of the Mazda Hot Lap Challenge, the iRacing members who record the top-five fastest lap times will be entered in an end-of-year race where 35 racers will compete in Global MX-5 Cup cars at Daytona International Speedway. The winner of that race, which will be broadcast live on iRacing, will receive an all-expense paid VIP trip to the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona as a guest of Mazda Team Joest.

At the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona, the two winners of the Mazda Hot Lap Challenge will face off in a head-to-head battle on the simulators at Mazda’s consumer display with the winner earning a test in a Global Mazda MX-5 Cup car.

The Mazda Hot Lap Challenge is open to legal residents of the United States who are at least 18 years of age. iRacing membership is required for participation in online qualifying.
