Players Can Win a Virtual Mercedes-AMG F1 W11 EQ Performance, CSR2’s First Licensed F1 Car
SAN FRANCISCO – July 21, 2021 – Today, Zynga Inc. (Nasdaq: ZNGA), a global leader in interactive entertainment, announced the upcoming CSR Racing 2 (CSR2) “Europe Series”, a new in-game multi-event that will challenge players to race across prime tracks throughout Europe.
Following the success of the recent America Series in CSR2, the Europe Series will rev up its engines beginning on August 12 and run through October 29 of this year. All players will receive a virtual BMW M4 Coupe (G82) “M Performance” car in the first of 11 events across three tracks, which are inspired by real world circuits in locations such as the Nürburgring, Germany and Matera, Italy. In each event, players can unlock some of the world’s most iconic cars, such as the Pagani Huayra R, which will be featured within a game for the first time.
The finale will take players to the legendary Nürburgring track, where they will have a chance to win the officially licensed Mercedes-AMG F1 W11 EQ Performance featuring its striking black livery as driven by the seven-time World Drivers’ Champion Lewis Hamilton. The in-game driver of the W11 will be depicted wearing Hamilton’s black and purple helmet, his black race suit seated in the black liveried car – all designed as part of the team’s statement against racism and discrimination in all forms.
“We share a passion for motorsports and racing games with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team, making them the ideal collaborators for our Europe Series event,” Julian Widdows, Vice President and Head of Racing at NaturalMotion, the Zynga studio behind CSR2.
“For the first time in CSR2 history, we are bringing an F1 car to our game that not only celebrates one of the world’s most iconic racing cars, but also lets players experience the power and performance of this car in-game.”
“As a testament to the license granted by Mercedes-AMG Petronas to NaturalMotion in collaboration with Zynga, CSR2’s Europe Series will give players the chance to race this virtual elite racer that was driven to the Constructors’ World Championship by Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas,” said Simon Forester, Head of Licensing from the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team. “It’s an incredible opportunity to bring this awesome car to the screens of motorsports enthusiasts worldwide giving players the ultimate racing experience.”
