Eidos and SimBin Development send word that the demo for RACE has been released.

Eidos Interactive and Simbin Development Team are happy to announce the demo release of RACE – The Official WTCC Game. For the first time ever the close racing and intense action of the World Touring Car Championship can be experienced behind your own computer!

Featured cars in this PC demo are the Seat León and the BMW 320i, representing the versatility of the WTCC Championship. At the legendary circuit of Brands Hatch, UK, players can experience a taste of what’s to come. Chase your ghost in the Time Attack mode, push yourself to the limit and break your own record.

On top of this it’s also time to unveil the in-game support classes for the WTCC championship which will be featured in the full version of RACE – The Official WTCC Game. Next to the over 35 officially licensed touring cars there will be 2 additional classes, ‘WTCC 87’ and the 2006 Mini Cooper Challenge.

‘WTCC 87’ will give you the chance to drive 2 of the most fabled cars from this era, the Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo and the BMW e30 M3. These classic touring cars were the stars in the only ever Touring Car World Championship before Andy Priaulx won the revived World Championship in 2005. They were driven by names that are part of the 2006 season as well, such as Gabriele Tarquini (SEAT) and Nicola Larini (Chevrolet), or Roberto Ravaglia (Team manager BMW Italy-Spain) who won the championship that year.

The Mini Cooper Challenge offers racing as close as the Official WTCC, providing close racing and great spectacle. Being the ultimate starter class, the Mini’s offer a great opportunity to learn the basics of racing before progressing to the more advanced World Touring Cars. And above all an equal opportunity, as everybody is driving the same package in this field of over 30 cars.

Together with the Official 2006 WTCC Season these support classes will give you an experience you don’t want to miss. So download the demo and get a taste of what’s to come!

The PC demo and additional info on the support classes is available from the official RACE-website: www.race-game.org

RACE – The Official WTCC Game will be released on November 24th 2006 across all European territories on PC.
