There are three courses to choose from, which include a Red Bull Racing themed facility – “Circuit,” a Route 66 style rugged site – “Desert Trail,” and a futuristic “Neo City,” where modernity meets tradition.

Players posting the top three scores of the week will win a digital voucher to purchase Honda or Red Bull Racing official licensed merchandise. The leaderboard will reset each week, giving new challengers the chance to compete for the prizes.
