With the SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED racing game soon to be on the shelves around the world, it's time to get some healthy competition going. We are extremely excited to announce the SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED Autolog Challenge! We said that we were going to start off with a bang and that's a promise we're going to deliver on. For the past couple of weeks, we've been posting Autolog Challenge videos featuring 2010 Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. & Team Need for Speed driver Matt Powers, American Le Mans driver Tommy Milner and legendary drifter (also Team Need for Speed driver) Darren McNamara. If you paid close attention to these videos, you may have noticed that we've been putting in hints of the Autolog Challenge.
Now it's time to get this challenge going. Starting Monday, April 4th, we'll be posting times and drift scores set by Team Need for Speed drivers on the Need for Speed Facebook page:
- On April 4th, we'll post Tommy Milner's time on Brands Hatch
- On April 11th, we'll post Vaughn Gittin Jr's drift score
- On April 18th, we'll post Tommy Milner's lap time on Laguna Seca
Your challenge will be to beat these times and/or scores, and anyone who enters has a chance to win some really nice prizes provided by Astro Gaming and SHIFT 2 Unleashed. To enter, take a picture of the post-race screen in SHIFT 2 Unleashed, showing that you beat the time / score, and twitpic it to @NeedforSpeed with the hash tag #SHIFT2_AutologChallenge. Make sure your user name and time/score are clearly visible.
Stay tuned for more information about the Autolog Challenge and get practicing because it all begins on Monday, April 4th!
