LG Electronics has announced that the company will be giving away one of its flagship gaming TVs – a 48-inch OLED C1 – during a Raceway event at this year’s Comic Con Africa in Johannesburg. Contestants will have to speed around a track on Forza Horizon 5 on the OLED TV Raceway and race their way to the top of the leader board to stand a chance to win the grand prize.

Comic Con is a world-renowned pop culture and gaming festival that first came to South Africa in 2018. This year, the festival will take place from 22 to 25 September at the Johannesburg Expo Centre, featuring eight stages and more than 256 hours of content. From championships, competitions, and product launches to workshops, Q&A sessions, screenings, and interactive experiences – this year’s Comic Con Africa has something for everyone.

In the Artist Alley – Comic Con’s most iconic event – fans will be able to meet the artists and writers of some of the world’s most influential TV shows and movies. Comic Con Africa announced the attendance of Selwyn Ward, known as the Red Turbo Power Ranger, Tati Gabrielle from Uncharted, Jamie Campbell from the cult-classic Stranger Things series, and more.

At LG’s Raceway stand at Comic Con Africa this year, gaming enthusiasts will be able to compete for an OLED TV in the company of prominent South African gamers like Mister FlakSuper Dave and Sam Wright (aka Tech Girl). In anticipation of this year’s Raceway event, Tech Girl commented: “I love the LG OLED Raceway events. There is obviously a competitive aspect to it, but even if you aren’t the fastest racer, the LG community and other gamers at Raceway make sure you’re being cheered o‌n and supported. It’s a fun experience whether you’ve raced before or not, and it embodies what gaming is all about – a community. We’re all there racing together, helping each other improve and going at lightning speeds on an OLED TV. It’s going to be a blast.”

South African gaming influencer and YouTuber Mister Flak added that “This year’s Comic Con is going to be a gamer’s paradise. I’m excited to see who can race to the top of the leader board. Driving at terrifying speeds through the gorgeous landscapes of Forza Horizon 5 – and in stunning 4K at 120Hz – is something every gamer should get to experience on OLED.”

LG’s OLED gaming TVs have set a new benchmark for gaming experiences because of their unbeatable response time of 0.1 millisecond, low input lag, built-in gaming features, and the latest adaptive syncing technologies. And with the power of self-lit pixels, OLED TVs deliver a level of contrast and colour quality that bring the best out of today’s next-gen games.
