Who Wants To Come Go-Karting And Play ModNation Racers?

Who Wants To Come Go-Karting And Play ModNation Racers?

I’m changing the rules for this mid-race. Seems the competition proved a little too tough for some of you. Read on to find out how you can now enter.

Sony are hosting an event in Sydney next week where a select group of Kotaku readers will get their hands on PS3 racer ModNation Racers – and enjoy some real life go-karting as well. You could be one of them.

ModNation Racers is the kart racing sim that lets you build your own track, mod your kart and design your own character. It even features Kratos, Nathan Drake, Ratchet & Clank and, er, their girlfriends.

Sony has TEN double passes (that’s ten winners plus a friend each) to give to the Kotaku community for next week’s ModNation Racers event. You’ll be whisked away to a top secret location to mod your own go kart and then take it out on the track for a test drive. Plus, you’ll also be able to play the full game and experience a lot more than is currently available in the public beta.

And, best of all, you’ll have the opporytunity to write up your impressions of the event and the game for publication on Kotaku!

First things first, you need to be over 16 years of age. And you need to be available the evening of Wednesday, April 28, and make your own way to Sydney’s CBD.

To be in the running to attend teh community event, we want you to nominate a driving song that best captures the spirit of ModNation Racers. Leave your entry in the comments below by midnight Sunday, April 25. The most creative, wittiest and cleverest entries will win. Multiple entries are ineligible.

(Oh, and if you already entered via the original competition mechanic, you’re still in with a shout, too.)

Good luck!

[Terms and Conditions]


  • Louis Armstrong – What a wonderful world.

    Just imagine this playing, and there’s a video of you blowing your enemies/friends with ModNations wacky weapons like blowing them up, lightning, etc.

  • There is one song, and only one song that deserves this title. It is the most inspirational, mind-blowing and earth-shattering song ever created. When this song was released, pigeons flied, doves cried and the masculine part of men died. If this song doesn’t get this title, I will personally tell my mum. The best driving song ever, that deserves the title of “Song that best captures the spirit of Modnation Racers” is OBVIOUSLY… Wannabe By The Spice Girls. YOOOOOOOOOOO I TELL YA WHAT I WANT, WHAT I REALY REALLY WANT!

  • Alright hungry hungry Hendo wanted to enter this comp but the thought of a 125 kg Bowser guy that really cant bump guys of the the road like the games has scared me off carts.For shame.

    Also kids don’t post under the influence.

  • Highway to Hell – ACDC

    What is not in the song that modnation racers is all about? =D

    No stop signs, speed limit
    Nobodys gonna slow me down
    Like a wheel, gonna spin it
    Nobodys gonna mess me round

    Im on a highway to hell!

  • OHMYGOODNESS, defs Cake – The Distance.

    “HE’S GOING THE DISTANCE (he’s going for speed)”. Sounds like a good strategy imo.

    And it’s so darn cool. The one type of Cake that’s good when it goes off.

  • Rhymes With Stomach – Rainbow Road

    ~its called a road its called a rainbow road~
    ~it is a road where you go~ its the road where you go~ when you dieee~~ 😀 😀

  • Stuck in the Middle With You – Stealers Wheel

    Well I do know why I rocked up tonight,
    I got myself access through a Kotaku invite,
    I’m prepared in case I fall drunk off my chair,
    But I’m wondering how I’ll get home from there,
    Sheep to the left of me,
    Weapons to the right, here I am,
    Stuck in ModNation with you.

    Yes I’m stuck in ModNation with you,
    And I’m thinking how to power on through,
    It’s so hard to stay first in this race,
    Losing control, yeah, I’m all over the place,
    Sheep to the left of me, weapons to the right,
    Here I am, stuck in ModNation with you.

  • The most brutal driving song of all time, by the four craziest rockers whose reckless music knows no bounds. It is…

    Big Red Car – The Wiggles

  • ‘Gaskrankinstation’ by Headless Chickens.

    But I’m in Melbourne and stuck cube farming, so I’m just wasting your time. Sorry ’bout that chief.

  • Driving Wheels – Jimmy Barnes.

    Hard rock – means you can’t fall asleep at the wheel!

    And it’s about a man with nothing left – and when do the character racers come out? When there’s no ideas left 😛

  • Andrew WK – Soldiers of Sorrow

    It’s Andrew WK singing the stirring theme from the original Gundam series.

    Come on.

  • Caramalldansan (Speedycake Remix)

    Look it up and prepare for your mind to be blown.

    P.S I have blasted this song out in my car when I stop at the red lights. Reactions are priceless. 🙂

  • im going have won my place tho i have got my ticket to the event from ign so i guess there is a few of us
