* No purchase necessary. Contest starts February 1, 2023 at 12:00:01 am Eastern Time and ends June 30, 2023 at 11:59:59 pm Eastern Time. Contest is open to legal residents of Canada who have reached the age of majority in their province or territory of residence, however, participation in the Sim Racing Series Driver’s Championship Prize, which includes attendance and participation at a Porsche Canada Track Experience event, requires that the selected entrant be at least 21 years of age and be in possession of a valid, unrestricted driver’s license in order to be declared the winner. In the event that the first place entrant has not reached the age of 21 or otherwise lacks the requisite driver’s license, the Porsche Canada Track Experience event component of the Sim Racing Series Driver’s Championship Prize will not be awarded in the Contest; however, an alternate prize component of equal or greater value will be awarded to the first place entrant assuming such entrant is confirmed by the Sponsor and otherwise follows the Contest rules. Twenty (20) prizes are available to be won by individual entrants competing in the Sim Racing Series Driver’s Championship and three (3) prizes are available to be won by participating Porsche Centres in the Sim Racing Series Constructor’s Championship. Odds of moving on to the Sim Racing Series Driver’s Championship are dependent on the number of eligible entries received and the skill of each entrant in competing in the Initial Qualifying Round. After qualifying and participating in each round of the Sim Racing Series Driver’s Championship without disqualification, odds of winning a prize in the Sim Racing Series Driver’s Championship are no less than 10:21; odds of a Porsche Centre winning a Constructor’s Championship Prize will depend upon the Porsche Centre’s application of the Team selection criteria to eligible entrants and performance of the Porsche Centre’s Team in the Sim Racing Series Driver’s Championship, but are no less than 1:7. Correct answer to mathematical skill-testing question required.

By entering, participants agree to the full Contest rules set out in the Contest Rules and Regulations linked within this webpage.
