Go racing like a pro as Lewis Hamilton and NASCAR champion Tony Stewart steer you from rookie to pro racing driver.
Now that the 2012 motorsports season is well on track, Mobil 1 – one of the official sponsors for NASCAR and also a technology partner of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team – is offering fans across the globe a chance to join in on the action with its new online game: Mobil 1 Racing Academy.
As the name implies, you get this unique opportunity to go racing from beginning as a rookie and gradually working your way to top honors, all under the guidance of 2008 Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton and three-time NASCAR champion, Tony Stewart.
The game starts off pretty tame, giving players a good idea of how to play with an easy tutorial. Both the drivers have three levels of competition: pick Hamilton as your mentor and you’ll have to get into grips with karting, followed by Formula 3 and Formula 1 races. Step into the shoes of Tony Stewart and you will progress from midget cars, to IndyCar and then to NASCAR.

Sagar is probably one of the most silent kids working in the field of automobile journalism. He loves Porsches more than Ferraris and believes that kicking up dirt and slush is more exciting than laying down rubber on tarmac. The only time he makes noise is when someone questions his state of origin!
