    CVG has joined forces with System 3 to offer 500 places on the SuperCar Challenge beta trial, giving you change to play the racer online before it hits the shops later this year. Don't worry if you miss out on this batch, we've got plenty more coming in the next few weeks. Here's how to claim your free place on the starting grid.

    The download weighs in around 500Mb and the trial lasts through August (codes are only valid until the end of August too). Once you've got your free key just log onto the PlayStation Store and head over to the Redeem Voucher section of the Account Management tab. The rest is easy.

    Get your SuperCar Challenge beta key here!
    (You have to be a registered user on the site which is free which took me about 10 seconds to do)

    Please understand the nature of this beta trial. We have made it available so that people can try out the online aspects of the game. There are many aspects of the game that are not yet finished so you will certainly encounter bugs, glitches and crashes. However, fear not - this will not damage your machine.

    General Info
    Cars: Enzo Ferrari, Aston Martin DBR9, Mclaren F1
    Tracks: Nürburgring GP Circuit, Spa
    Weather Conditions: Dry, Wet
    Racing Options: 1-16 player Online (yes, you can race on your own if you want)
    Car Liveries: Various liveries available

    Racing Controls
    There will be many options in the final game but for the purposes of this trial the controls are:

    L Steer
    L1 Look Left
    L2 Brake
    L3 Headlights On/Off
    R Gear Shift Up/Down (in manual gear mode)
    R1 Look right
    R2 Accelerate
    X Accelerate
    O Handbrake
    Tri Look Back
    Sq Brake
    Start Options (DOES NOT PAUSE GAME)
    Select Change View

    Steering Wheel: Logitech and Thrustmaster wheels are catered for.

    PSN Compatibility
    PSN accounts from the US, Australia, New Zealand, Portugal and Belgium may not be compatible with this Sony Europe beta. You will know because you will get an ERROR message when you try to use the code. If this happens you need to set up a UK PSN account.

    There are many options available to race hosts, ranging from no penalties, to full penalties and you can also set the game up so that players are disqualified after a set number of penalties. Players will be penalised for cutting corners and overly aggressive behaviour.

    All three racing modes are in this Beta. These are Assisted, Arcade and Simulation, the latter of which is fully customisable.

    Limitations Of This Trial
    Please understand that this trial is designed to give you a taster of what we're doing. Please also understand that the code this trial is based is now several weeks old. (that's how long it takes to get it all approved and on the store).

    There are only three cars and two tracks available. Controller configuration is also limited and you don't have access to the Showroom (where you buy and sell cars and design your liveries). The Damage meter is also off for this trial, so while there is visible damage you won't have to retire through excessive damage.

    General Tips
    Don't underestimate how much of a difference there is between the handling of the cars and the way they handle in the rain.

    We'd recommend jumping into the DBR9 and racing in the dry for a few races, just to get the feel of the game and the car, and to get used to the controls. Driving in the rain is a real challenge, especially in Simulation mode. Curbs are slippery, braking distances are vastly extended and braking while turning is a recipe for disaster.

    And here's the small print:

    By participating in the SuperCar Challenge Beta Trial you are bound by the following conditions:

    * Participants must not capture screenshots or footage of any part of the trial, whether it be for personal use or public use.

    * Participants must not receive any financial gain from this Beta Trial.

    * Times, achievements and ratings will not be carried over from the Beta Trial to the full game experience.

    * System 3 Software Ltd cannot take any responsibility for language used over Voice Over IP.
