'Tasting the excitement after all'

OUDE-TONGE, Netherlands - August 10, 2006: Gert-Paul van 't Hoff (40) saw his boyhood dream go up in smoke. After preparing for two years, he was forced to withdraw (team 76) from the Beijing Classic Car Endurance Rally 2006 on account of a fractured vertebra. But Van 't Hoff -- an optimist in heart and soul -- found a way to taste the excitement of the rally after all. What's more, now the rally's 'open' to everyone, thanks to the Classic Rally Game.

The most exciting and spectacular event for classic cars ever: that what fans have called Beijing Classic Car Endurance Rally 2006. The four weeks revolve round sportsmanship, culture, camaraderie and adventure. But that was unfortunately not in the cards for team 76 -- or was it?

Excitement in the cards

Now the stunning classic 1973 Porsche must simply wait in a dark garage for its time to come. Until then, there's always the card game. Invented as an alternative way to get in on the rally, it gives those who cannot take part a real taste of the rally.

Picturing a host of classic cars, the game is used to play out the Amsterdam-Beijing Rally (versions for other rallies are also possible). To win, Classic Rally Game players must brave punctures, empty tanks and crashes. The winner is the first player or team to cross the finishing line after having overcome the various obstacles.

The game has turned out to be a great success. In fact, all games were sold out while still in production. The second series went into production even before the first was out on the market. The game is available in six different languages. Classic Rally Game aims to distribute primarily via partner network, with for example, car clubs that is growing rapidly.
