Win a driving experience of a lifetime

Win five days testing Continental's exceptional tyre range in the south of France

No matter how powerful your car, or how great a chassis it has, you won’t get to enjoy it to the full unless it’s wearing the right tyres. Continental Tyres has been at the forefront of premium tyre technology for many decades, and its current range of tyres, for all types of vehicles, exemplifies its constant quest to push forward boundaries.

For instance, its latest ultra-high performance tyre, the SportContact™ 6, uses a unique and highly advanced technical compound called Black Chili, a special blend of natural rubber and synthetic rubber that creates what’s known as a Micro Flexibility Compound: in simple terms this ensures the optimum interlocking of the tyre’s tread and the road surface. The benefits are manifold – better acceleration and shorter braking distances at high and low temperatures, and in dry or wet conditions.

Cornering grip is improved, too, and combined with the latest carcass construction technology, it means that the SportContact™ 6 has superb steering characteristics, it’s very quiet and comfortable, and it gives impressive tyre life. No wonder Continental Tyres is one of the leading original equipment tyre suppliers for car makers around the world, and that one in three cars made in Europe leave the factory on Continentals.

But rather than just reading about its outstanding tyre ranges, Continental Tyres is offering you an extraordinary opportunity to experience their qualities first-hand, through an easy-to-enter competition that could see you take part in the Black Chili Driving Experience in the south of France.

First, though, you’ll need to correctly answer three questions online, details for which you’ll find in the entry instructions on this page. You’ll then be entered into a draw for the Black Chili Qualifier Event, being held at Mercedes-Benz World on Saturday 12 May 2018. This is a prize in itself.

You and your driving guest will be one of 24 teams at the Weybridge driving facility: you’ll be facing a series of challenges that include blind driving, high-speed track work, and navigating through a devilish 4x4 offroad course. While it will all be fantastic fun, you’ll also be assessed for driving skills, communication and teamwork. At the end of the day, 12 teams will be selected to attend the Black Chili Driving Experience in the south of France.

For the sheer thrill of driving, few places anywhere in the world can compare to the south of France, and on the Black Chili Driving Experience you’ll be there between 1-5 July 2018. On magical roads that twist and wind, dip and soar, you’ll truly get to appreciate why Continental Tyres puts so much effort into the development and testing of its tyres. During the course of your five days away you’ll get to try SportContact™ 6, ContiSeal™ and ContiSilent™*, fitted to some wonderful cars – BMW M240i Xdrive Cabrio, Mercedes-AMG C43 Cabrio, Porsche Boxster 718, Range Rover Velar, Tesla S 85 and Audi RS3 Sportback*.

And if all that weren’t enough, you’ll be staying in some of the region’s best hotels, and eating in some of its most celebrated restaurants.

For anyone with a passion for cars and a penchant for driving them hard, the Continental Tyres Black Chili Driving Experience will be the automotive trip of a lifetime. So don’t delay, enter it now.
