Formula One fans who play Mario Andretti's Grand Prix Fantasy Racing in 2002 will win more than $50,000 in cash. But time is running out on the Melbourne race just 10 days away. Fantasy racers need to sign up before March 1 to qualify for the cash that will be awarded for that race.

Mario Andretti, the father of Michael and Jeff Andretti and 1978 Formula One World Champion, launched the Formula One fantasy racing game in January in association with Play The Sports, Inc. The game tests the skills and knowledge of Formula One enthusiasts.

A scoring system is applied to the actual Grand Prix results from each race weekend. Based on the total points scored for the season, participants win prizes - and bragging rights, of course. For those not certain about playing a fantasy game, Mario Andretti Grand Prix Fantasy Racing 2002 offers a free trial run.

"This is an exciting game," said Andretti. "Especially for those racing enthusiasts who bet on the outcome of races amongst friends from week to week. For them, this game is a natural. For a one-time entry fee of $99.95, you are in the running for the cash every qualifying session and every race. You pick the driver you want, the engine, the tires...."
