ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties Company launched a new, free-to-play online game for its Mobil 1 fans across the world. The Mobil 1 Track Challenge is available at www.grid1.tv/game, the website of the weekly motorsports television program shown on broadcast channels around the world.
Mobil 1 Track Challenge is this year’s version of 2010’s successful game, Mobil 1 Global Challenge, which ranked among the top 10 Internet-based games. The new game features a unique track builder function, allowing players the ability to create their own racing environments, including changing the shape of circuits, placing obstacles on the track and altering the weather and time of day. Players can test their virtual driving skills by racing Vodafone McLaren Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, and Stewart-Haas Racing NASCAR drivers Tony Stewart and Ryan Newman.
Mobil 1 Track Challenge features virtual representations of the 2011 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-26 F1 car and the Stewart-Haas Racing NASCAR Chevrolet Impala No. 14 and No. 39 cars. At the end of each race, competing online racers can also view exclusive video messages from the celebrity drivers.
In an added feature, players can challenge friends through sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and LinkedIn, set online challenges in real time, instantly send play updates on their lap times and share their favorite race tracks.
