Lewis Hamilton Time Trial Challenge

The "Lewis Hamilton Time Trial Challenge" is a purchasable DLC. It's a single player mode which will be made available tomorrow on the PS store for $7.99. It challenges players to try to beat the lap times set by the Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton. There'll be ten challenges overall:
Dragon Trail - Seaside
  • Autodromo Lago Maggiore - GP
  • Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit
  • Willow Springs International Raceway: Big Willow
  • Suzuka Circuit
  • Autodromo Nazionale Monza
  • Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit
  • Autódromo de Interlagos
  • Nürburgring GP
  • Nürburgring Nordschleife
Completing these events credits, which will be awarded for achieving Bronze or higher. Completing all the challenges rewards players with extra bonus credits. Cars will also be awarded as prizes for challenge achievement levels, and those who complete the hardest conditions will get a "special prize" with a design from Hamilton's "Project 44" team. The DLC allows players to watch replays, and to interact with Hamilton's ghost car. The ghost car can be positioned near the player's location, and some tracks will have a tutorial in which Hamilton gives advice. Driving data will also be available, such as braking points and throttle operations. It'll have "Friend Rankings", as well as the Top 10 Stars' Rankings, for each of the challenges. If you manage to get a Gold or better in all ten of the challenges, you can upgrade the credit limit cap from 20 million to 100 million.

The free update and paid DLC will both be available tomorrow, November 28th.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
