Want to watch the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans, but can’t make your way to France? Perhaps the AXF 24 Challenge — a party co-hosted by Audi and Microsoft’s Xbox team — is the second-best way to view the classic enduro.
The event celebrates the Le Mans race and serves as a venue for a digital race challenge. Audi’s currently asking gamers to fire up Forza Motorsports 3, pilot a digital 2009 Audi R15 TDI race car around the Circuit de la Sarthe, and submit their best lap times. Those with three best times will be invited to the Audi Forum in New York City on June 12, where they’ll compete head-to-head in a four-hour Forza-based endurance race. The winner will receive a one-day program with the R8 at Audi’s Driving Experience school in Sonoma, California.
Want to watch the cyber-race in person? Audi’s opened the event — which includes a live feed of the Le Mans race, food, door prizes, and Forza 3 game kiosks– to those over the age of 21. The festivities will be held from 1-5 p.m., and Audi suggests you preregister.
