redspotgames sponsors Formula BMW Talent Cup race driver Lassi Halminen

Written by redspotgames at 1. July 2011

Owners of the already released Dreamcast version of‘Rush Rush Rally Racing’ might know: This 2D old-school racing game is pretty hard indeed. Therefore we decided to sponsor race driver Lassi Halminen to support his career. And to have a professional race driver adjusting the difficulty of the upcoming WiiWare version of‘Rush Rush Rally Racing’ of course. So it’s just at the edge of being too hard, yet fair!

redspotgames, Lassi Halminen and HAL Racing not only teamed up for partnership at the Sturup Raceway in Sweden two weeks ago. It also marked the first on-track race situation of the Formula BMW Talent Cup.

Lassi would have been qualified for the next level in‘Rush Rush Rally Racing’ with his pace in Sturup. Due to the qualifying results he started in group two and placed Third and First in those two group races! Excellent job, Lassi!

The 15 year old from Kangasala, Finland is one of 15 participants of 2011 Formula BMW Talent Cup and the only one from a Nordic country. He started Karting by the age of 10 and is following the steps of F1 legends like Mika Häkkinen (characer-wise) and Kimi Räikkönen (career-wise), while Ayrton Senna is his personal idol. (DETAILS TO COME)

F1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel once attended at the Formula BMW Germany and therefore gave the participats a visit at Formula BMW Talent Cup shoot-out in Cartagena, Spain. So this seems like the perfect start of young talents in the big wide world of motorsport racing.

Also‘Rush Rush Rally Racing’ is going the next big step and will be released for Nintendo WiiWare in July 2011 in Europe. The release dates in North America and Japan are still to be announced.
