Kalisto Entertainment today signed an exclusive agreement with SRO (Stéphane Ratel Organisation) for the production of online games that allow real time participation in the FIA GT championship.

This partnership with FIA GT championship is the first step in the innovative series of projects announced last February by Kalisto under the Sportners name. Now for the first time, thousands of gamers will be able to participate in the whole championship season, driving the legendary cars of the FIA GT.

First convincing tests have been realised on the most prestigious racetracks. Thanks to sensors on vehicles, all the real-time racing information is transmitted to data services controlled by Kalisto. This new innovative experience allows gamers to compete against actual, real life participants.

“This partnership is a world premiere in the racing car and video game sector. Beyond the tremendous technological performance, Kalisto also creates a new spirit in this unique online game: a community experience based on a positive sporting spirit”, declared Henri Magalon, Kalisto’s Online Director. “Racing car fans as well as Gran Turismo video game enthusiasts will be able to live the emotions of the greatest drivers.”

“Dream cars, advanced technology and conviviality make the specificity of the FIA GT championship,” stated Stephane Ratel, Director of SRO and organizer of the championship. “The new line of games developed by Kalisto will allow hundreds of thousands of fans around the world to enter this exclusive universe. Such a partnership represents a unique opportunity for the expansion of the Gran Turismo races.”

This online sport gaming innovation will be developed utilising Kalisto’s unique proprietary technological tools, combined with the proven experience and expertise of the internal teams in developing successful racing games. The development project is an essential part of Kalisto’s overall online strategy. Kalisto is clearly positioned as a high quality interactive content provider of new online media, and forecasts 50% of its turnover to be generated online by 2002.
