The Chequered Flag Falls And They're Away!

1st August 2007

‘European Street Racing’ from XIDER, the fast and furious street racing game for PC brought to you from 7 great cities, will be hitting the streets on September 21st.

The top street racers from across Europe have been competing against each other in their various home towns in racing‘turf’ wars. But now, the seven national champions are looking for a fresh challenge in a bid to find the all out champion of Europe.

An influential event sponsor has requested there be one further contender, an eighth contender, someone to challenge the champions, a wild card with little experience but great racing skills… In European Street Racing you are the wild card, and the winner of all seven cities becomes the European Street Racing Champion winning a place in street racing’s hall of fame.

Crucial to success is making the right tuning and modification choices before the chequered flag falls. Prior to hitting the streets of Berlin, Hamburg, London, Madrid, Moscow, Paris and Warsaw with a brand new car, you have to decide whether it’s speed or control that will win the next race. Speed may put you into first place, but also into the first corner!

Engine and gear box upgrades are available and needed as the racing becomes more intense. Cars can be acquired by beating opponents on their home turf and prize money can be invested in new cars or parts to make the ultimate racing machine.

There are 3 types of racing mode.‘Drift Racing’ looks to develop the player’s skill at using handbrake turns and dramatic manoeuvres to win a race;‘City Racing’ is about speed and the knowledge of the course as timing is everything, while‘Challenge Racing’ is a personal battle between two racers who admire or hate each other.

The quest to find the eight contender continues on www.maxpower.co.uk/ESR. Car entries are now closed and voting has begun.
