The Legion of Racers, with support from the Singapore Tourism Board, will be organising the HyperDrive Cities (HDC) 2022 Festival from 23 September to 25 September 2022. To be held at Orchard Road, this will be Asia's first hybrid online to offline festival that combines live sim racing, entertainment, lifestyle and technology within an urban carnival setting.

The HDC will take place during this year's Grand Prix Season Singapore (GPSS) from 23 September 2022 to 2 October 2022. GPSS is a collection of innovative race-themed lifestyle experiences that complements the Formula One Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2022.

Participants will get to experience the Orchard Road Street Circuit in the HyperDrive Cities game
For three days, the HDC will be held at SCAPE in Orchard Road and will feature a regional sim racing championship that follows the inaugural E-Cities Championship held in November 2021, along with an electric go-karting experience and a community sim racing challenge with prizes for the fastest sim racers from the public.

The HDC Championships 2022 boasts a prize pool of $10,000 with the top winner guaranteed at least $3,500.

In addition, the festival at Orchard Road will also feature HDC Gameplay Stations, a motorsports themed gameplay powered by Augmented Reality where participants complete the various Gamemaster challenges to earn NFTs and rare prizes.

A McLaren 720S will be displayed at the venue for public viewing during the event
An entertainment element will be added to the post-sim race event with Singaporean artistes RRILEY and Haneri, who will both perform a set of three songs each. In addition, DJ NashD, the official DJ for local artistes Shigga Shay and hip hop collective Grizzle Grind Crew, will be performing on 23 September 2022 from 8:00pm to 10:00pm.

Among the partners confirmed for the festival include McLaren, TYCA, Next Level Racing, Logitech G, Monster Energy, and Tarmac Works. A McLaren 720S will also be on display at the venue during the course of the programme.
