It’s already exciting enough that the new, beautifully made and massively expanded F1 2013 game is out today, but alongside the release, there’s a special offering from Codemasters’ RaceNet service.

The RaceNet service acts as a great community for players of Codemasters’ games, and for this weekend, in line with the Korean GP there’s a special Time Trial event – every entrant gets the classic Ferrari 312 T2, as driven by Nikki Lauda in the recent RUSH film and you can have a go at driving the legendary machine in the Time Trial mode.  It’s not easy to drive, but it’s an epic experience.

F1 2013 players will get more from their game with RaceNet, Codemasters’ free online community hub. RaceNet will power regular community challenges, which will begin this weekend with a Time Trial event in Korea where players will compete to set the best time on online leaderboards around the circuit in dry conditions in a Williams car. Each entrant will earn 1000XP which can go towards unlocking rewards, including in-game helmets.

RaceNet also enables players to set up Custom RaceNet events. Players can set their own Time Trial scenarios, choosing circuit, weather conditions, car and duration of the event, and challenge their RaceNet friends to compete to set their best time on leaderboards. RaceNet also includes visual stats and game progress updates and every F1 2013 player with a RaceNet account will receive the 1976 Ferrari 312 T2, as starring in the film Rush.
