System 3 invites racing fans to prepare themselves for a superb year of Formula 1 racing, with all the action kicking off this weekend in Melbourne, Australia. It’s anybody’s game in these early stages as energy recovery systems, slick tyres and frill-free bodywork throws the ball into the court of any racing team quick enough to take advantage of the new 2009 regulations.

One thing’s for sure though; we’ll have a definite idea of which team has got what it takes by the time the British GP comes around on June 21st. And what better way of preparing yourselves for some awesome weekends of European summer racing than by throwing a McLaren F1 around the corners of Silverstone, Nürburgring, Spa and Monza? You can do just that in System 3’s SuperCar Challenge, which is set to launch just in time for gamers to become Silverstone pros. And with the unrivalled handling engine and superb attention to detail found in SuperCar Challenge’s cars and tracks, you can be sure that your experience will be as close to the real thing as is possible in a videogame.

Gamers will be invited to battle in 16-player online races and take part in specific GP track competitions (Silverstone, Nürburgring, Spa and Monza) with winners picking up top prizes such as tickets to Formula 1 race events!

SuperCar Challenge features some of the greatest vehicles and racing circuits the world has to offer as well as a critically acclaimed car handling, realistic rain conditions, track tutorials and voiceovers from Tiff Needell, an in-depth Career mode, intricate decal&livery customization tools and 16-player online battles. SuperCar Challenge will launch in Q2 2009.
