Races have covered Europe by push-bike, car, plane, and even hot-air
balloon. Now it is the turn of the truck! Nine European cities have
come together to award the Supertrux Trophy, the most prestigious and
coveted trucking trophy ever devised. London, Paris, Bruxelles (Brussels),
Rome, Madrid, Vosges, Venice, Pisa, Athens - their names call the roll
of the great and ancient cities of the Old World. But as for the roads
that connect them ...
Hve you got the ability, have you got the raw nerve, have you got the
guts to race 30 tons of solid truck across Europe, through hazardous
conditions and along tortuous, twisting roads, beating all the other
drivers to claim the Supertrux Trophy?
Only the most skillful and daring of drivers will be able to survive
the perilous journey from city to city. The road signs will help you,
but choose your path carefully; there are many routes to take, and
while some may be shortcuts, others will lead to sections of road
treacherous in the extreme, with viciously sharp bends, narrow single-
lane carriageways and even major roadworks. Precise steering, lightning
reactions and a clear head will be needed to get you through in one
piece. And beware the other drivers - they will not think twice about
ramming you with their 30 tonners in a murderous attempt to send you
skidding off the road.
Competition will be fierce and each leg must be completed in record
time - so don't hang around. Put your foot flat down and give a blast
on your air-horn to let them know you're on the road and you mean
business! Play as dirty as they do and maybe, just maybe, you will win
the Supertrux Trophy.
