The Black Chili Driving Experience has two components. First, we’ll pick the 24 best applicants from the competition (above) to attend a qualifying day at Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands on Saturday 25th May.
There, the lucky contestants will get behind the wheel of performance Mercedes-Benz models on the dry handling track and off-road course to test their driving skills, as well as taking part in challenges to assess how well both act as a team. It’s a jam-packed day of performance driving that is a pretty impressive prize in itself.
From this, we’ll pick the best 12 duos for the Black Chili Driving Experience itself – which takes place between Sunday 30th June and Thursday 4th July.
We’ll fly from Heathrow to the south of France, where they will spend three days driving a range of performance cars on some of the most scenic and thrilling roads that the Mediterranean coast and southern French Alps can offer. They will also take part in some fun challenges on the way – with a prize for the best team.
It’s the perfect chance to try out Continental’s Black Chili performance tyres. Inspired by cycling technology – and named for chilli’s sticky and spicy nature on the tongue – the Black Chili compound is used in all of Continental’s high-performance tyres, delivering enhanced grip, response and stability.
