If you’re not doing anything for the next, say, five minutes, then we invite you to give this cross-linked interactive game from Hot Wheels a go. It’s a pretty cool promotion, one that used up more than the promised five minutes of our time, but it sure was worth it.

This is the Hot Wheels’ Custom Motor Cup Challenge, a ‘Choose-your-own-adventure ‘ type of game where you get to compete in a series of races to determine if you have what it takes to become the Custom Motor Cup Champion. Be sure that you don’t skip any of the scenes, especially in the end of each video because you will first be asked what type of vehicle you want to race in – a GT Racer or a Baja Truck.

After choosing your car, you will then be asked what type of customization you want to do to your car to suit the stage you are racing in. What you choose will determine what your race standing will be. Try to make three informative decisions on your car set-up and you can very well go home with that Custom Motor Cup championship.

It’s pretty fun to spend your idle time on and just so you guys get motivated to give it a go, we placed first on every race on our first attempt. Try and equal that!

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

Anyone who’s had to deal with BMW service or their HQ knows what I’m talking about. Great cars, owned a bunch, but I’m not quite dumb enough to buy one again.
