With the recent announcement of the impending arrival of the XBox One, McLaren and Turn 10 Studios have made that development much more exciting.

Sure, Forza Motorsport 5 will be launched to coincide with the XBox One. But what really got our attention was the competition that would see the winner be afforded the opportunity to be the first to ride onboard an actual P1 supercar.

Talk about a contest with a prize that’s worth all the trouble. All you need to do is visit the official Facebook competition app page, watch the launch video, which you can see after the jump, and guess the location of the starting grid in the trailer using an embedded map in the app.

Sounds pretty simple, right? Well, it should be. What’s going to be difficult though is the expected number of entries in the competition, making it more difficult for any one of us to score the winning ride. But even if we don’t get the top prize, there’s still that matter of winning a tour of the McLaren Technical Centre as a second prize of a third prize of an "exclusive gift pack".

Sounds pretty enticing, right?

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
