Rockstar Games has kicked off the (deep breath) Midnight Club: Los Angeles Official World Championship Series, the tourney where handy Mid Club racers can battle for supremacy - and free pizza.
World Championship Series tournaments will take place monthly during 2009, says Rockstar, and eligible entrants will have the chance to prizes such as Rockstar Games gift certificates, a year of free pizza from Pizza Hut and - much better - a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle.
From now until February 6, players on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 can sign up for the first tournament, the Rockstar Games Starter Cup, via the Rockstar Social Club for a chance at a $500 Rockstar Warehouse grand prize shopping spree (is there even that much gear on there?!)
The first tourney will start with worldwide time trials followed by head-to-head championship races to determine the ultimate grand prize winner. The Starter Cup winner will be crowned on February 13.
