Redbull have announced a "Beat the Pro" Challenge which gives the Fans and Grand Turismo players an opportunity to face off against both Max, Alex and Redbull junior Yuki Tsunoda's set times.
This years Japanese Grand Prix was cancelled due to the global pandemic so, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and Red Bull Japan have collaborated with Polyphony Digital and Sony Interactive Entertainment to bring back the excitement of racing competition for fans in a virtual Gran Turismo Sport time trial.
“Racing on simulators is great fun and even more so when it involves the fans, especially now as we don’t get to see them as much” said Alex. “Suzuka is one of my favourite circuits on the current calendar, it’s extremely fast and there’s very little margin for error so I’ll be interested to see what the fans can do around there. Japan has so many passionate F1 fans so I’m also intrigued to see how the rest of the world’s Gran Turismo players compare with the Japanese. It’s game on!”
After setting his lap time Max commented “Suzuka Circuit has a lot of fast corners without much run off which makes it demanding and hard to find the limit but I really enjoy racing there. I haven’t driven on Gran Turismo for a long time, since maybe 2013, so I’m sure the time I just set will be pretty easy to beat in the Super Formula car. We will of course miss the amazing fans in Japan this year so hopefully they can have some fun beating our times around the Suzuka Circuit in the game. Enjoy…”
If you choose to accept this challenge, please do let us know how you get on!!
