From the blog:

"Each day you will be gifted with forty (40) Autographed 8?10 Glossy Pictures of Q upon completing the ?Fastest Game on Ice? (the same race seen during last year?s Winter Event). This means that player captains that can participate in the event 25 times during the 35+ days that the Winter Event will be active, will have earned their way to a FREE Starship!"

It seems that you actually have to WIN the race to get the pics, not just complete it. I've tried several times so far and have yet to win...so the rewards are not quite being GIFTED to us as the blog describes...

Completing = winning. You need to beat the NPC, but you can try again until you beat it. Once you get the hang of the track, you'll end up beating the NPC each time by a longshot (tip: jump or roll to stop yourself from sliding). The PvP race has separate rewards for placing and participating.

Cheers,

I just did the PvP race and I got nothing for participating in it. I know I was 4th so I'm guessing there is nothing for those who finish 4th or later.

You should receive a handful of Winter Epohh Tags for completing the PvP Race, but we're currently tracking some issues with Open Missions (like this race) occasionally cancelling themselves before being completed. We believe it's related to server load, but we're still investigating.
