Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19708878C1] The vehicles are driven by electric motors and their speeds on a track (AS) are individually controlled by the players. All of the vehicles are stopped when a predetermined period has elapsed after a driving mistake causes one of the vehicles to leave the track. The vehicles are stopped by switching off the power to the motors. The user can change the system between the racing mode and a training one in which stopping does not take place. In the racing mode, the vehicles can be allowed to start only when all players actuate their speed-controllers (F).
