Two weeks have come and gone and with that we’re heading to China this weekend. The circuit is known for its long straights and complicated corners, especially turn one. Getting the car balance just right is going to be crucial, but if you’re there for the simple joy of just racing a stock car there’ll be more than enough players to make it a fun race.
We had two lobbies running two weeks ago, which went a little wonky – we’re still learning and improving. Tonight there will likely be two lobbies again, but we think we might have it down this time. If you want to join that first lobby, be sure to login early.
Here is the current point standing for this season (A quick reminder: The points are just for some bragging rights and nothing else – you can still win prizes at the end of this year by just participating. Check the details further below).
Please note: This is without the Bahrain points (we’ll update it as soon as we receive the info we require to do so):
25pts – Marky45

How does this work?
Total number of races: 3
Race 1 = 5 laps, Collisions off, Damage off.
Race 2 = 5 laps, Collisions on, Damage off.
Race 3 = 25%, Collisions on, Damage on.
Should you crash out then it’s bad luck. There are no restarts, as in the real world of F1. Points are awarded, as you would expect in an F1 season, but it’s there purely for bragging rights.
If you’re keen to check it out before taking part, there will be streams live on Mixer on the evenings.
Uhmm… I just want to know how I can win things?
To win you need to participate in these Friday evening events, by taking part in at least five races over the 2019 season. It’s as simple as that. Should you play a minimum of five races you’ll be entered into the lucky draw where you can win a Thrustmaster steering wheel (thanks to Megarom Interactive) and a locally produced G-Force Sim racing chair, which takes place after the last race at the end of this season. Glenn Alexander (Xbox Playdates ZA host) will stream the draw live. So, don’t worry if you’re a bit of
Here is our prize winner from last year enjoying a game of F1 2018. This year it could be you.
That is one amazing prize (especially if you’re a racing fan), but there will be several other games up for grabs on that same evening, thanks to Apex Interactive.
How do I get started?
Add Glenn Alexander (GlennZA) or myself (dawid22) to your list of friends on the Xbox One and we’ll send you an invite as soon as we see that you’ve started up the game on the evening. Should you not hear anything, be sure to send either of us a message via Xbox Live.
If you have any other questions, be sure to ask us in the comments, social media or message us on Xbox Live.
Again, a huge thanks to our sponsors, Megarom Interactive (Thrustmaster), G-Force Sim (racing chair) and Apex Interactive (various games).
