Infiniti’s got something special in store for its fans at the 2014 F1 U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas on November 2nd. Unfortunately, it doesn’t involve riding a Red Bull RB10. But it does have something to do with reigning F1 World Champion Sebasitan Vettel and the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge. Interested now?

Infiniti’s launching a competition and it wants its fans to submit their #InfinitiRaceFace. What does that mean, exactly? I’m not quite sure myself, although I do think it involves contorting your face to show what it would look like if it’s being hit by winds in excess of 180 mph. I suppose the most original race face will get the nod, or at least something that resembles the attached photo Infiniti included with its press release.

In any case, we’re all welcome to submit our entries by following @InfinitiUSA on either Twitter or Instagram. Once that’s done, we then take a photo of our best race face, post it on either site and use #InfinitiRaceFace.

If you win, you get a chance to ride shotgun with Vettel as he takes the Q50 Eau Rouge out for a hot-lap around downtown Austin. Pretty sweet, right?

All entries will be accepted from September 23rd through October 8th. You can also check out the official rules and guidelines for the competition at Infiniti’s US website.

If there’s one car that’s been subjected to arguably the most intense round of teasing, it has to be the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge.

I don’t understand the delays behind its approval because there’s clearly a lot of positive buzz surrounding the it. Everybody who has seen it, be it up close or over the Internet, has drooled over it.

Oh, and did I mention that it already looks like it’s ready to pounce on anybody that gives it a mean stare? All that and we still haven’t mentioned the fact that it’s powered by the same 3.8-liter, twin-turbo, V-6 engine that the Nissan GT-R uses. You know, the one that produces 560 horsepower and likely has a 0 to 60 mph time of somewhere in there 3’s to go with a top speed of 180 mph.

Let’s go, Infiniti! The whole world is waiting for your production thumbs-up on the Q50 Eau Rouge!

Press Release

Ahead of the 2014 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas on November 2, Infiniti is asking fans to submit their #InfinitiRaceFace. One lucky grand prize winner will get the chance to attend the race and an exciting Infiniti event on Wednesday, October 29 where the winner will be one of a select few to ride with four-time Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel in Infiniti’s 560 horsepower Q50 Eau Rouge prototype for a hot-lap in downtown Austin.

Beginning September 23, fans are invited to submit their entry by following @InfinitiUSA on Twitter or Instagram, posting their best "Infiniti Race Face," and using the hashtag #InfinitiRaceFace for a chance at the grand prize.

An Infiniti Race Face captures the excitement and adrenaline that represents the feeling of experiencing a Formula 1 car at speed. Infiniti Race Faces are not ordinary. They embody the focus and determination it takes to pilot a Formula 1 car, the enjoyment that happens after hitting each apex flawlessly or executing the perfect lap, and the physical effects of a 180-mph wind hitting your face.

Entries for the grand prize will be accepted from September 23 through October 8. Additional prizes, including Infiniti Red Bull Racing apparel, will be awarded for other photos posted through November 2. Winners will be determined by Infiniti and judged across a panel of specific criteria, including photo creativity, fitting with the #InfinitiRaceFace theme and the clarity/quality of the image.
