Renowned Swedish racing game specialists SimBin is giving all virtual racing drivers the chance to test drive RACE On, the latest PC title in the RACE series. Published by bitComposer Games GmbH and distributed by Kalypso Media the exhilarating RACE On demo lets you complete the first few laps with two cars: the Dodge Challenger SRT8 and the Seat Leon TDI. The 681MB demo teases you with two game modes and two tracks for car racing fanatics: Oschersleben and Falkenberg. A multiplayer steam demo is also planned and will be available shortly.
The RACE On demo has two game modes to get your teeth into: in the“Racing Event” mode players must complete a whole weekend of racing, including training, qualifiers and the race itself, whereas the objective in“Time Attack” is to achieve the fastest lap around a circuit.

THE RACE IS ON!
In RACE On, PC players can race on the circuits in 39 meticulously reproduced vehicles that are available in over 450 designs. 27 variants of 21 racing tracks guarantee hours of challenging racing fun. Apart from Imola and Okayama, glamorous raceways such as Laguna Seca, Road America, Sturup and Karlskoga also feature on the impressive list of tracks. Drivers can compete against up to 25 AI drivers in the 17 different race classes, and can of course burn rubber against real players online! The new Dual Ghost mode offers players two ghost opponents to help improve both your own lap times and those of your opponent. A realistic physics engine and a dynamic weather system that can change during a race, provides a totally authentic raceatmosphere. Compulsory pit stops in the STCC races add an extra tactical component to the already exhilarating game play experience.
