Zynga Partners with Racing Icons Danica Patrick and Mark Webber for CSR Racing 2’s New “America Series”
The series, which will run through July of this year, takes place during a festival roadshow in the fictional city of Los Derivas. Players start with a free Ford Mustang RTR Spec 3 to compete in 10 events on seven tracks in the U.S. With each succeeding race, players can unlock rare international race cars, such as the McLaren Senna GTR, the 2021 Ford GT “Heritage” Edition and the Mazda Furai, which only exists in the virtual world.
“America Series delivers an exhilarating racing experience that captures the thrilling competition of professional motorsports,” said Julian Widdows, Vice President of CSR2. “Celebrating motorsports, America Series combines in-game legendary icons, a rare collection of the most competitive sports cars and exciting events to make the game a memorable experience for racing fans and speed enthusiasts.”
By completing individual events in the series, players can earn new event credits that can be exchanged for exclusive items such as the in-game 2016 Ford GT LM car. As a final reward, players can win, for the first time in CSR2 history, a virtual IndyCar.
“Over the course of my career, I’ve had the opportunity to race across the country at iconic tracks like these,” said Danica Patrick, an American former professional racing driver and the only woman to win an IndyCar Series race. “CSR2’s America Series appealed to me because it gives everyone the opportunity to see these tracks from a driver’s perspective.”
“CSR2’s America Series is an incredible opportunity for players to compete on some of the most iconic and spectacular racing circuits across America,” said Mark Webber, a nine-time Formula One Grand Prix winner and 2015 FIA World Endurance Champion for Porsche. “Now people can experience what it’s like to race across pro circuits from the comfort of their own lounge.”
