- TRIVIA -

According to a Gaelco employee, Blomby Car is a bootleg/hack based on "World Rally" with only graphics changed. But, according to Game developer this was not true. The game only take inspiration from "Word Rally" and source code was totally original.

Blomby Car was only released as a conversion kit and it seems to have had a limited production run. It was ABM & Gecas' only arcade release.

This game, which is Italian, shows a scan of an Italian newspaper about Chiappucci at the Paris-Roubaix cycle race in the highscore table.

Francesco Zaia, son of a development team member, supplied the Peugeot 406 model, used to create the frames of the player's car.

About ABM & GECAS : Two manufacturers in Milan with technical labs in Chioggia (province of Venice) and Massa Matelica (Ravenna). The lab located in Massa Matelica closed down after the unfortunate loss of the head technician due to a car crash. ABM now is located in Chioggia and is still in business.
