To celebrate a new BBC Children in Need gaming show starting in November, EA and Codemasters have revealed a special F1 23 livery. This Spotacular livery will be available for all players, with F1 23 used heavily in the show to find the fastest racers in the country.
Game On! For BBC Children in Need is a brand new gaming show created by BBC Studios Entertainment. Hosted by Vick Hope and Steffan Powell, the show features both public and celebrity guests competing against one another in a virtual Las Vegas Grand Prix in F1 23.
This grand final is the culmination of a series of events that have taken place since the British Grand Prix back in July, with other key events held at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and at BBC studios across the country. The grand final is being hosted at the Confetti X esports arena in Nottingham, with the fastest players around Silverstone in F1 23 entered into a draw for the chance to compete in the final.
You can tune into the Game On! For BBC Children in Need grand final at 7 pm GMT on Friday 10th November on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer and to celebrate, EA and Codemasters have created a special Pudsey-themed livery for all F1 23 players.
The Spotacular F1 car is based on the regulation design, making it appear more akin to the 2022 demonstration car than any of the cars on show this season. Luckily Pudsey won’t be driving, so you can still take advantage of the light weight and superior aerodynamics.
This Spotacular livery is a great collaboration between Codemasters and the BBC and is just the latest in a series of special liveries that have come to F1 23.
“We’re proud to partner with F1, BBC Children in Need and BBC Studios for such a worthwhile cause, and we hope to raise even more for BBC Children in Need during the live final,” said Lee Mathers, Senior Creative Director at Codemasters.
Tommy Nagra, Director of Content at BBC Children in Need, also added: “Game On! is a groundbreaking new addition for BBC Children in Need and we are delighted that EA SPORTS has developed a ‘Spotacular’ livery in F1® 23 to inspire and engage gamers, helping us reach a new generation of supporters.”
The Spotacular racing livery is available for all F1 23 players. Simply log in to the game between 6 - 17 November to claim this incredible livery. We can’t wait to see the Spotacular livery under the lights on the Vegas strip.
