F1 2013 Launch Event

By -

What better way to celebrate F1 2013 coming out than beating your friends times at a lap on an iconic track in front of loads of people. If that doesn’t take your fancy why not see how good you are at changing race tyres in the custom built pit lane inside the store. Which store is this you ask? Well its the one on Oxford Street, and the event starts at 11am.

F1™ 2013 roars into HMV Oxford Street 4th October

Take on your friends in the pit-lane with the F1 2013 pit-stop challenge

Friday 4th October sees the release of F1™ 2013, the definitive FORMULA 1 videogame for this generation of consoles, and we’d like to invite you to suit up and join the action at HMV’s Oxford Street store from 11am where there will be an actual FORMULA 1 car inside the store.

During the event, you can take on your friends on some of the most iconic tracks from FORMULA 1 history including Imola and Estoril. When you’re not setting fastest laps, you’ll be able to try your hand at changing a race tyre in our custom pit-lane inside the store itself. We’ll be shouting about your successes throughout the day, and if you’re lucky enough to be the fastest in the pit-lane, there’s some great prizes to give away on the day, including a brand spanking new PlayStation 3 for the fastest time.

We’ll also be showing off the greats of FORMULA ONE, only available in F1 2013: CLASSIC EDITION, such as Alain Prost, Emerson Fittipaldi, Michael Schumacher, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill.

F1 2013 is the pinnacle of FORMULA 1 videogames, capturing the excitement and the action of one of the world’s most watched sports. With its release on 4th October, this is your chance to step into the cockpit and take on the world’s best. F1 2013 includes all the official content from the 2013 season, including the 2013 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™, an expanded Young Driver test, a new scenario mode, and the return of Grand Prix mode.

Take a picture in store and Tweet #F12013 #HMVlaunch as we will be handing out some cool prizes for the best pictures in store.
