Online game: drive the ‘Automechanika Racer’ to Frankfurt

The Automechanika Team has come up with something special for the coming Automechanika in Frankfurt am Main from 11 to 16 September 2012 – the ‘Automechanika Racer’ – an online game that is also available free of charge as an app from the Apple Store. The idea is to drive a prototype car as quickly as possible to the Automechanika in Frankfurt. At the start, however, it immediately becomes apparent that the car is not in the best condition.

The challenge for the player is to drive as quickly as possible to Frankfurt and to put the car back into shape at various places during the journey. Important are dextrousness and fast reactions because a variety of obstacles and surprises await the driver along the route, which begins at a scrap yard. Moreover, drivers can earn additional points, for example, by having the car sprayed or repaired in a workshop, by driving it through the carwash or equipping it with additional accessories. A driver-training session at the Nürburgring will be raffled among the 50 best participants. Additionally, tickets for the Automechanika will be raffled among all players at the end of each month. The closing date for the competition is 13 June 2012.

Innovative is not only the specially developed method of steering by finger or arrow keys on the rear of the car but also the technical aspects, e.g., the game has been programmed completely in HTML5 and Javascript, which calls for the use of a modern browser (Firefox 8, Internet Explorer 9, Chrome 12, Safari 5 or higher).

The game is an incentive via which the Automechanika aims to reach younger people from the workshop sector. ‘Automechanika Racer’ is available not only in German but also in English and is, therefore, perfect for attracting the interest of visitors from outside Germany, too.

Hop in and test your driving skills at www.automechanika-racer.com.
