Schnell! Drive The ‘Automechanika Racer’ To Frankfurt

The Automechanika Team has come up with something special for the coming Automechanika in Frankfurt am Main from September 11 to 16, 2012.

The Automechanika Racer is an online game that is available as a free app from the Apple’s App Store, but can also be played at

Players drive a prototype car as quickly as possible to the Automechanika event in Frankfurt. However, players will realize immediately that the car is not in the best condition.

The challenge for the player is to drive as quickly as possible to Frankfurt and to put the car back into shape at various places during the journey. Challenging obstacles and surprises await the driver along the route, which begins at a scrap yard.

Moreover, drivers can earn additional points, for example, by having the car sprayed or repaired in a workshop, by driving it through the carwash or equipping it with additional accessories.

Automechanika aims to attract a younger demographic from the workshop sector with the game, which is playable in English and German.

A driver-training session at the Nürburgring will be raffled among the 50 best participants. Additionally, tickets for the Automechanika will be raffled among all players at the end of each month. The closing date for the competition is June 13, 2012.

Not only was a special method of steering by finger or arrow keys on the rear of the car developed, but also the technical aspects, e.g., the game has been programmed completely in HTML5 and Javascript, which calls for the use of a modern browser (Firefox 8, Internet Explorer 9, Chrome 12, Safari 5 or higher).

The game can currently be played at and is available from the Apple App Store.
