Hot Wheels Launches First Ever UK Stop in Global Search for Next Fan-Inspired Die-Cast Car

Published at, 15th October 2020

Car enthusiasts in the UK can submit their custom and modified builds for a chance to be featured in the next international stop of the Hot Wheels Legends Tour virtual series 

For the first time, fans across the UK are getting the chance to virtually join the excitement of the Hot Wheels Legends Tour! The global search to immortalise the next Hot Wheels die-cast vehicle will be live on the 24th October in an exciting virtual event with amazing celebrity guest appearances on the stream including Ben Collins (formerly the Stig) and Car Throttle Host Alex Kersten, which will also be streamed on the Car Throttle Facebook page.

 

WHAT:
Hot Wheels Legends Tour 2019 was an epic tour, which saw more than 110,000+ participants, more than 5,000 entries, 18 finalists and 1 extraordinary winner! Now in its third year, the tour has gone virtual and one of the new stops will be in the UK in search of a winner, where one lucky custom build will be celebrated as a die-cast car and shared with fans across the globe.

Fans, families and car enthusiasts can participate in the Hot Wheels Legends Tour UK stop by submitting their builds at http://bit.ly/HotWheelsRegistration and by tuning into the live virtual stop where the top entries will be shortlisted and interested participants can view LIVE stream at www.facebook.com/carthrottle on 24th October from 17:00 – 19:00.

The finalist from the Hot Wheels Legends Tour UK’s virtual stop will join all other Legends Tour finalists at the Virtual Global Finale in Los Angeles in November for a chance to have their car immortalised as an iconic Hot Wheels die-cast vehicle.

At each stop, fans will have the opportunity to show off their unique custom builds from open-wheeled jet-inspired rides like the 2018 tour winning 2JetZ™, to classic coupes like The Nash, which won in 2019. Hot Wheels designers and automotive influencers will select one finalist from each stop based on the criteria of authenticity, creativity and garage spirit. At the end of the tour, all 13 finalists across the world will compete at a live event in Las Vegas, where they will be judged side-by-side to determine the grand prize winner that will become the next Hot Wheels die-cast vehicle.
