4 Apr – Calling all speed-loving adrenaline junkies, TGV Cinemas is organising its very first simulated street race championship, "Fast and Furious 8: Furious Showdown"!
"I am so pleased to announce TGV Cinemas' inaugural simulated grand prix; where aspiring drifters get to test their agility in a simulated racing rig to the sound of cheers from friends, "Fast 8" fans and race enthusiasts," said TGV Cinemas' Head of Marketing Services Celeste Koay in a statement.
Between 8 April and 16 April, coinciding with the release of "Fast And Furious 8", speed fans can drift in souped-up sports and muscle cars in simulated street races inspired by the great "Fast And Furious" franchise.
The first to the finish line will get to go on an all-expense paid 3-day, 2-night trip for two in Los Angeles.
The first prize winner will also get to experience the official "Fast & Furious: Supercharged" ride attraction featuring cast members of the franchise at Universal Studios theme park in Los Angeles, California.
Second place will win an entire standard hall where they can host a screening party for any movie of their choice, while the third prize winners will receive official "Fast And Furious 8" merchandise. Finally, consolation prizes include TGV Cinemas' movie premiums and passes.
The first round is the preliminary race. The preliminaries will take place at 12pm until 6pm on 8 April at TGV Sunway Velocity and on 9 April at TGV Sunway Pyramid.
Players only have to attend one qualifying round and earn a place in the top 5 in their chosen race by clocking the fastest lap time.
The second race is the finale where the top10 players – those who placed top 5 at each qualifying round – will compete for the grand prize.
The final round will be held at TGV Cinemas Sunway Velocity on 16 April from 12pm to 4pm. To take part, participants must purchase a minimum of two Advanced Sale tickets for "Fast And Furious 8" at any TGV Cinemas.
