Huntsman have launched a free race game offering the chance to win a 42” TV, Playstation 3, iPod touch and other prizes, to celebrate their sponsorship of Le Mans race champions ORECA.

The relationship has been based on a number of product applications delivered by the company’s development team. Renshape BM5055 tooling boards were used extensively on prototype moulds for carbon pre-pregs and Araldite adhesives and composites enabled complex parts of the body shell to achieve the necessary dynamics for a high performance race car. For example the bonnet was made up of 15 different components, but Huntsman say that it looks and performs as a single unit.

The race game aims to provide some of the excitement of top class international car racing and is delivered complete with soundtrack straight to the user’s mobile or iPhone and is also available to play online. The game involves racing a virtual Araldite branded Team ORECA race car from the driver’s seat on an interactive quarter-mile track, dodging objects and aiming to complete a lap in the quickest possible time.

To download the game users can text “race” to 004480011 from mobile phones outside the UK; just 80111 inside the UK, visit the iPhone App Store or the web site below.
