May 3 2006, , Roaring onto the PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system on May 30th, Race Driver 2006 is set to be the handheld’s most thrilling and comprehensive auto sport title. Featuring a cavalcade of real cars, world-famous circuits and incredible closely fought competition races, it comes from the creators of the acclaimed TOCA Race Driver series.

In addition to an extensive career mode, Race Driver 2006 comes loaded with an additional and all-new championship - the Trans World Cup - exclusively for the game’s U.S. release. The Trans World Cup is revealed in a new movie, taken from the championships’ opening sequence, now available online at

The Trans World Cup delivers high-octane event-based racing challenges in short bursts, making it perfect for PSP system gaming on the go, and takes the action way beyond first-past-the-finish races. Different events will test drivers’ racing prowess and car-handling expertise in areas such as damage control, using the racing line, manoeuvring, timely pit-stops and pulling stunts.

Challenges include ‘Bring It Home’ where players take control of a heavily damaged car in a race that only has a few laps until the finish. On the flip side, the ‘No Damage’ race sees players competing alongside some very aggressive opponents. The challenge is to finish with as little damage as possible and points awarded depending on the condition of the car.

In a ‘Drive the Line’ event, the perfect racing line is shown on the track - players must keep their cars on it for an entire lap. And, just to prevent crawling around the circuit to stay on the line, there’s also a target time to cross the finishing line.

For those with a flair for pulling stunts, the Cup’s ‘Show Off’ competitions will let players loose on off-road tracks. Here drivers rack up points for power-sliding, air time, drifting and getting the car up on two wheels... and all with minimal damage.

‘Duel’ events pit players head-to-head against one rival that gets a head start on the race; players must use their best racing manoeuvres, close in and overtake them for more than five seconds to win the race, all without causing any damage to the opponent’s car while overtaking.

With many more varied events throughout, it all leads to the Trans World Cup final: an intense championship across some of the leading U.S. race locations, including Nashville Super Speedway, Road America, Gateway International Speedway, Laguna Seca and the Michigan Loop.

Complete with real racing cars, real damage, real physics, and intense pack racing with up to 21 cars on-screen competing for position, Race Driver 2006 is set to release on May 30th, exclusively for the PSP system.
