Split/Second developer challenges rivals

Wants to face others in go-kart racing.

Split/Second: Velocity game director Nick Baynes has challenged rival UK racing game developers to a charity go-kart competition.

When asked whether the numerous UK racing teams ever got together to race for real, Baynes told the Podcast, "The answer's no, but maybe I should issue a challenge today.

"I think Codemasters, Bizarre, Criterion and Black Rock should have a charity go-kart competition. I'm laying the rules down now. As long as we can use explosives on the track - that's my only condition. No, if they're up for it, we're up for it. Bring it on."

He told us in an email later that he was very serious. If they end up doing it we promise to film the results.
