To celebrate the release of Forza 6 -- featuring a host of current V8 Supercars liveries, including the newly-unveiled Xbox One Ford Falcon FG X -- Microsoft has announced the Forza Motorsport 6 'Drive to Win' global competition.

To celebrate the launch of the highly-anticipated Forza Motorsport 6 on Xbox One, players will be invited to take part in an in-game challenge for the chance to win this once in a lifetime opportunity. Winners will travel to Australia to experience one of the biggest days in the international touring car calendar, as racing legend Marcos Ambrose and Xbox Racing Team lead driver Scott Pye, challenge the V8 Supercar field in the Xbox Racing #17 Ford Falcon FG X.

To earn a chance to win, players must complete the ‘Forza Drive to Win/Xbox One Bathurst Challenge’ rivals event in-game, racing the 2015 Xbox Racing #17 Ford Falcon FG X around Mount Panorama by 11.59pm on September 29th, 2015, AEST. Those lucky few will then go on to compete live at the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000 for the fastest lap of the track on Forza Motorsport 6, the most realistic racing experience available. The high speed, iconic street circuit is considered to be one of the world's most challenging courses for its combination of narrow sections and steep grades, both of which have been laser-scanned and built from the ground-up for Xbox One.

Ten fans from around the world that complete the in-game rivals event will be drawn at random to attend the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000, October 11-15, 2015, including two from the United States, two from the United Kingdom, one from New Zealand, and five from Australia. Winners will receive a trip for themselves and a friend to the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000, and the chance to score USD$5,000 in prize money, as well as have their Gamertag emblazoned on the official Xbox race car and the track itself.

Winners will also get the chance to meet Ambrose and Pye and challenge their Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000 qualifying times on Forza Motorsport 6.
This is one very sweet competition. It's unbelievable to think that Microsoft's involvement in the V8s went from a promotional Wild Card entry to where we are now, with a full-fledged team featuring the legendary Marcus Ambrose.

Race fans, could you see yourself doing this?

It would be good at the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000 if you could be in the pits at the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000 or even get to drive a race car at the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000 could i see myself at the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000 racing against Marcus Ambrose at the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000 ? probably not, but i do know of some one who do the job at the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000 and that some one who would jump at the chance to participate at the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000 would be Joaby ,I'm sure he would do well at the Super Cheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

F*****g Xbox all over the place on Sunday. Cars, signage, hats, t-shirts and even on the podium.

Speaking of, the abundance of hats and mad scramble for a hat with a sponsor logo on it is laughable every time a driver, team member, crew member, driver family or someone remotely official to V8 Supercars ends up in front of a camera.
