Race Against Time – the book

Some of you may remember the Race Against Time microsite featuring the Saab 9-3 SportCombi.  On the site you had to choose the actions you’d take from several choices given, resulting in a new set of choises arising etc etc.  Your goal was to get from home to a beach house, picking up some bonus items on the way, in the quickest time.

Well, I’ve just received a copy of The Race Against Time in book form.  It’s a choose-your-own-adventure style book (remember them from the 80’s?).  I’ll have a flick through it tonight.

I thought you all might like the notice on the bottom of the second page though:

The following story is entirely a work of fiction.  Saab Great Britain Ltd does not assume that the sometimes extreme actions of the principal character are by any means representative of a typical Saab driver.  Neither does Saab Great Britain condone or encourage any such actions.  Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, events or locales is entirely incidental.  All names, characters….blah blah….are the product of the author’s imagination.  The car, on the other hand, is real.

Love it.

  1. Matt, I wrote to Saab UK through the UK website and asked for one. To tell you the truth I half expected them to email me saying sorry, UK residents only. It arrived a week later. Thanks Saab UK!!
