Have you ever watched the racing at Goodwood and thought “I could do better than that”? Always yearned to show the pros exactly what you can do? Well, now is your chance! Goodwood eSports presented by Mastercard is giving you the chance to compete for hot lap victory against the best competitors at Goodwood.


Six Goodwood regulars have already recorded high-speed laps around the Goodwood circuit using Gran Turismo Sport and the Gran Turismo F1500T-A turbo F1 (in it's standard form, on the tyres it comes in as originally purchased, no tuning please) car as part of the build-up to the once-in-a-lifetime Goodwood SpeedWeek presented by Mastercard. Now we want you to beat their times, and the fastest non-professional between now and 23.59 BST on October 23 will win an incredible Rally Stage: After Dark experience at the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard in 2021.

This doubly daring and exhilarating experience of the Forest Rally Stage will see guests driven by a professional Rally Driver, racing through the woodland course under the cover of darkness. The adrenaline rush will be followed by drinks served next to a forest firepit and an overnight stay at Goodwood Hotel.


All you need to do is record a flying lap around Goodwood on Gran Turismo Sport, using the Gran Turismo F1500T-A, and post the resulting lap to either Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #MastercardHotlaps. If you are fast enough your time will be included in our top 25 leaderboard alongside professional racing drivers recorded both before SpeedWeek and in a specially set-up rig on site. You could find yourself challenging a multiple Le Mans winner for victory!

So what are you waiting for? For your chance to win the Rally Stage: After Dark experience get on your PS4 now and start recording your best laps. We will share your best laps across the Goodwood social media channels, and we’d love to see the best moments as well as when it went a little wrong. All the best bits will star on our social channels.
