From the time my parents first started taking me to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, I raced toy cars through the house.
The floor was a good starting place but carpets often ruined the track I had envisioned.
My parents had a really nice wooden coffee table with a glass inlaid top. Well, it was nice until I scratched the glass by turning that surface into a short track for my cars. That's when Dad replaced the glass with a mosaic tile top and I was off to the races again, this time without damaging anything.
As time went buy, I moved to other racing pursuits, but I never completely left the cars behind. I still have two Pinewood Derby racers that I made. Much more recently I have taken to collecting the 1/64 diecast NASCAR cars.
Very recently I discovered a new game that combines the best of what I loved as a kid and added just enough adult touches to grab my interest. The game is Turbo Rally Card Racing, created by Alec Ramsey.
It is offered through a website called Kickstarter. For those who aren't familiar with this relatively new way of doing business, here's how it works. People and/or companies, offer people a chance to get in on the ground floor of a project by pledging money to make sure the proper amount of funds are raised to get the project created and into the marketplace. The people who pledge often get some perks for their investment that might not be available to the consumer who purchases the product once it arrives in stores.
That's where the Turbo Rally Card Game is right now. Specifically you can look at some information about it and a few videos at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/166525302/turbo-rally-card-racing.
