New Volkswagon Golf GTI- Virtual ScalextricFri, 01 May 2009 00:00:00 -0700
Try the virtual VW GTi Scalextric game online
The new VW Golf GTI is launching in the UK (22nd May) and in a pretty cool ‘interest gatherer’ VW has created a virtual Scalextric game to keep the interest bubble growing for the new GTI.
The game is based on a complex Scalextric setup created for VW by a team of 60 Scalextric modellers. The 30′ x 25′ layout features over 200 scale buildings and a challenging variety of twists and turns. The real life setup is re-created in an on-line gaming site, just for the GTI launch.
Playing the GTI game is simple enough. Just head over www.gtiproject.com and follow the instructions. Just like the real thing, going at it like a bull in a china shop will lead to disasters, but a skilful approach will be rewarded by good lap times. There is even a ‘Leader Board’, so get good and post your times.
Of course, this is not just VW being altruistic. There is method in the game and you will be offered brochures, test drives and be exposed to the ‘VW Experience’.
But what the hell, if you’re bored at work, or just fancy a play, head over and test your skills.
