Codemasters and Electronic Arts are celebrating the 2022 FORMULA 1 United States Grand Prix by encouraging fans around the world to take on the Ricciardo Hot Lap Challenge at the Circuit of The Americas and set their fastest lap.
EA Sports has signed NFL driver talent Derwin James (LA Chargers) and NBA Patrick Beverley (LA Lakers) for the COTA Hot Lap Challenge. Led by Daniel, all three took turns at the Austin circuit to see if they could beat the Australian McLaren driver’s time. Players can get some tips from Daniel Ricciardo on how to tackle COTA here.
Fans interested in the Hot Lap Challenge must take to the Austin Circuit in the Time Trial and share their result during the October 20-24 race weekend using the hashtags #RicciardoChallenge and #F122gameSweepstakes. One winner will be selected at random on October 28th and will receive a virtual meet & greet and race with Daniel Ricciardo as the grand prize. The full terms and conditions can be viewed here.
“There has never been a better time to jump into F1 22 and experience the new era of Formula 1. New players can experience the entire game for free and take advantage of special race weekend prizes. The Daniel Ricciardo Hot Lap Challenge has also generated excitement among existing racers as they chase his best time.”
