Vodafone Taxi Grand Prix is a new fantasy racing competition. Just like in Formula 1 the aim of the game is for your team of drivers to finish the race before anyone else.

With five races in the Taxi Grand Prix season and a grand prize of a VIP trip to the Italian Grand Prix in Monza for the season champion, it is going to be an exciting season.

There are hundreds of other prizes to be won, including tickets to the Santander British Grand Prix at Silverstone, Hot Laps with Lewis Hamilton, a day at the McLaren Technology Centre home of Vodafone Mercedes McLaren - HTC MagicTM handsets and signed merchandise.

To enter the Taxi Grand Prix all you have to do is create your team, pick your drivers and get racing. There are 10 drivers across 5 cities in the UK Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and London all equipped with a GPS enabled HTC MagicTM. As they rack up the miles on the road, you will be building up your miles in the race.

Vodafone have made a short video to explain the competition mechanics voiced by Jim Rosenthal. You can check it out here.
