Mercedes-Benz GT5 Signature Edition Challenge

Mercedes-Benz is pulling Gran Turismo gurus out of the living room and onto the race track.

Owners of the $300 Gran Turismo 5 Signature Edition were able to register and play in a special B-spec mode where they acted as team directors for different series of 5-lap circuit races. What made the Signature Edition a true standout, however, is that those gamers were actually playing for a chance to transfer their driving skills into a high-stakes racing battle to win one of the crown-jewels of the Mercedes-Benz collection.

Gran Turismo 5 has compiled the top 15 regional competitors from across 22 countries who have proven their mettle, to put the pedal down on a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in a real-life race. The SLS, worth $200,000, will be awarded to the driver who gains the most points during a series of driving challenges at the event.

The competition will take place July 11-12 at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, but while waiting for the results, you can check out the Mercedes-Benz GT5 Challenge Facebook app that allows you to check out the competitor bios and 'Like' your favorites.
